Thanks to Vitamix for sponsoring this post. I was sent the Vitamix Ascent Series Blender for free in exchange for an honest review. The opinions below are my own.
Oh hey! Are you ready for Valentines Day? Me either. Luckily (and I really mean that), Mr. Britnell and I don’t really celebrate Valentines Day. It’s not because of anything mushy like “we think you everyday should be like Vday”. lol. No. It’s more just that we’re kind of lazy and neither of us seem to care much for the day. If he was super into it, then I might be too.
Instead, we use it as an excuse to treat ourselves to a fancy meal (which I think will be homemade this year) and usually Mr. Britnell buys me a plant. I do like flowers but would MUCH prefer a living plant. Uhm, have I told you about my current house plant obsession? It’s getting a little serious. I think we’re up to 42 house plants right now ????????????????
So yea, it’ll be a romantic evening in (and by that I mean we’ll make dinner and eat it on the couch in our pjs <<<<<which absolutely sounds like the BEST kind of night to me). We’ll light a candle, eat a dish which has yet to be agreed upon and DEVOUR this Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Tart! Gimme!!
I’ve used a lot of blenders in my days but NONE of them compare to a Vitamix. It’s one of those thing where you think “Is it really worth the extra money?”. YES! Yes, it is. And their new Ascent series is amazing. It’s such a simple thing but my favorite thing about this blender is the digital screen. I love that it tells me how long I’ve had the blender running. I have my daily green smoothies down to an ART. I now know precisely how many seconds to blend for the most perfect and creamy smoothie.
It also has 10 speeds that make blending ANYTHING super easy. Seriously so in love. If you don’t have a Vitamix, you need to add it to the top of your wish list :) Maybe buy yourself one for valentines day :D
^^^^This beautiful and delicious Chocolate Raspberry Tart was made using the Vitamix Ascent. I love how easy their high speed blenders make pies and tarts like this. Dump all the ingredients into the blender, blend, pour into your crust, and freeze. DONE!
The chocolate drizzle is just extra but HIGHLY recommended because….chocolate :)
I hope that you have a very lovely weekend and eat lots of pie….er, tart! Pie, tart, kind of the same thing, right? Right?
Happy Friday, friends!
