Finally, Vitamix has put together the perfect package for a healthy, raw food lifestyle — the latest Vitamix Ascent blenders! I am excited about these terrific blenders because it lets me offer my readers the best Vitamix yet. People buy a Vitamix for many reasons but the most common is to create a healthier lifestyle. That is a goal that I personally share with Vitamix and this blender can truly help you reach that goal. Now you can improve your life with better nutrition and more whole raw foods, from energy soups to green smoothies.
Vitamix Ascent blenders are one of the most powerful home blenders on the market today. In this one powerful appliance you get a blender, a smoothie machine, a juicer, a mixer, a grinder and more! Now with just this one powerful blender you can make everything from baby foods, breads and nut loaves to whipped cream, salsa — you name it!
It’s hard to say which of the high-powered blenders in this price range is the best. I owned a stainless steel Vitamix for over 20 years before I finally replaced it! Now the new Vitamix Ascent stands out thanks to its impressive 10-year warranty. It also includes a tamper to help push things into the blender, which is something many long-time Vitamix users prefer for making quick work of thick recipes that stall lesser blenders.
All the new Vitamix Ascent blenders offer the versatility you expect from Vitamix – combining a sleek design with the most modern features. So you get the first high-performance blenders with the latest features and technologies available, including built-in timers, wireless connectivity and a whole family of containers for both home and on the go.
The Right Model for Your Blending Style
The Vitamix Ascent A2500 features both program modes plus manual controls. Other new features include Wireless Connectivity that uses near-field communication (NFC) to identify which container is being used. This lets Ascent models use both full-size and personal-size containers. Ascent blenders only operate when they recognize a container, so previous Vitamix containers that don’t have NFC tags will not work.
All Ascent models feature a digital timer that displays the seconds and minutes of manual blends. A 6½ minute automatic cutoff lets the Ascent A2300 make soups! Just ramp up the speed to high, then the motor will turn itself off after the soup is smooth and hot. The A2500 also has a program mode with a timer that counts down the time remaining.

My Favorite Raw Food Vitamix Recipes
TIP: Eliminate fruit & agave if you have issues with sugar, such as hypoglycemia, diabetes, cancer, candida, etc. For kids in good health you can add MORE fruit to make things like bitter alkaline-forming dark greens more palatable.
Robert’s Easy Fruit Smoothie
Place ingredients in carafe, secure lid on top and push button #1.
Robert’s Raw Energy Shake

Robert’s Raw Alkaline Green Smoothie
2 cups filtered water
Add water to carafe first, then greens. Puree for 90 seconds until very smooth. Gradually add fruit until the container is completely full and blend 90 seconds. Add any other fruit to taste. For a change, try a Green mineral shake by adding sea vegetables like dulse, kelp, arame, and wakame. These contain the most minerals out of any other food. I purchase them from a local Asian grocery
Robert’s Raw Coconut Delight
1 fresh Young Thai Coconut
Pop the top off your coconut and pour coconut water into the carafe. Split the coconut and spoon the meat into the carafe. Scoop in the jelly of a the aloe vera (approx. a 2″ square piece). Add the other ingredients. Blend!
