Vita-Mix more than a Blender! Great for those with Allergies.

I purchased a Vita-Mixer at Sam’s Club a couple years ago and it was well worth every penny. The power of the motor and the tamper that allows you to push the items down makes it easy to place ice and flavoring in to make ice cream in minutes. I’ve broken other blenders trying to do this.

If you’re looking for a stylish version of the Vita-Mixer go to their website and purchase it online. All of the models sold in the warehouses are discounted but very plain looking.

Vita-Mix is a perfect kitchen companion. You can make up all kinds of recipes to accommodate your allergies.

Potato Ice Cream (Dairy Free)
1 Cup Ice,
TBSP Vance’s potato milk (dairy free),
TBSP cocoa powder, and 1/2 TBSP xylitol

I have many alternative recipes for allergy sufferers. If you are interested in more allergy resources, let me know.
