Vitamix 5200 blender recommended by Consumer Reports based on reviews, recipes

No wonder the high-tech gadget that is the Vitamix 5200 blender gets nearly 2,000 searches by people via search engines per day, according to the keyword tool on – and why the Amazon page featuring Vitamix 5200 blenders and others are flooded with positive comments and customer reviews, in light of the fact that the models can run nearly $500 each: Consumer Reports has just given the fast speed, powerful blender its coveted recommended status as of December 9, 2013, less than 24 hours ago.

This Internet Deals Examiner only learned of the blender because I felt the urge to ask the server at Robek’s – my favorite smoothie store – what type of high-speed blenders they use. They sound powerful and they really pulverize that kale, spinach and all those other fruit ingredients blended right into great soy protein and other “boosts” so deliciously that they taste so much better than the smoothies this girl tries to make at home with a blender that pales in comparison.

The Vitamix blenders on Amazon have great reviews, and are priced all the way up to nearly $650 right now, and I see why. People will pay higher prices to be healthy, which is one reason I don’t mind paying $7.49 per day for my large morning smoothies, and thank God that I can do so in order to keep watching the pounds melt off in my 1,600-calorie per day healthy eating plan.

Plus, now that I see how much better the smoothies are making me feel, I’m all on board to this life-changing experience. A quick perusal of some of the other things people search for regarding the Vitamix blender – beyond facts about the Vitamix 5200 model – include the fact that they want to compare it against the Blendtec version, and want live fresh recipes of fruits and veggies to throw in that thing. (Hint: Seeking out the Robek’s nutrition menu can give you lots of free recipes online.)

They also look for Vitamix machines at Costco, as far away as Dubai, and want soup recipes, like asparagus soup and other strange keywords that seemingly have to do with pet food.

Either way, this reporter loves the Vitamix blenders that have already contributed to me losing more than 3 pounds in less than 7 days, so stay tuned for the progress. And let me know your weight loss smoothie tips and recipes by commenting below.
