30 Bananas a Day!

So, I've recently been blending frozen bananas to make ice cream and my blender just does not like me when I do that. I smell the motor burning and it just doesn't blend it up very well. Not to mention, I need a larger container to blend my ingredients. Although I barely make smoothies, I love banana ice cream to get in a lot of calories since I don't like plain bananas. Is it worth it to get a Vitamix (maybe the 5200 series)?

I dont do banana ice cream in my vitamix yet anyway. But for everything else its the best thing going. I'm sure its just fine for that too. If you where to get one I highly doubt you'd be disappointed and you'd probably be using it for lots of other stuff too.

Dateraid for example it just anialates the dates theres nothing left to them its a silky smooth beverage no chunks no nothing. 

It could be overkill for just banana ice cream but I dunno mine was worth every penny I wish i would have bought it first instead of spending money on other options that just didnt measure up.

Thanks for your advice! I would think that, if I purchased it, I would end up whipping up more smoothies like banana smoothies and blending oranges. I'd probably experiment with some raw soups and sauces, too

uh huh. My advice if you can afford it dont even waste your time with anything else.  it'll blend anything till its silky smooth. Or you can run it for less time and have more chunks if thats what your after. 

Someone likened it to a countertop lawn mower thats not far from the truth. 

I had a cheap black and decker it was garbage. I had a magic bullet not bad but too small. and I had a ninja that made chunky anything never blended stuff smooth. I wasted a lot of money till i just broke down and got the vitamix.

Thanks Jim!

buy it    its a great investment for your health 

bought mine 7 years ago  with no problems whatsoever 

these things last a very long time and work perfectly 

yeah i heard one guy still had the same one from the 70's !! said its the only thing form the 70's he still has that still works!

this means the sooner we buy it the cheaper it is  

I think I may just have to get it!!
Thank you so much for your reply! You just gave me even more motivation to buy it! I was thinking of getting the 5200 at Costco, but I'm not sure which model would be best! I tried looking up your Professional Series, but there's multiple so I'm not quite sure!

mine was bought at costco  its #5200

I'm thinking of asking my mom to pay half and I pay half, that way it doesn't take me forever to save up. I totally want one now! Congratulations on your health and well-being (:

i got the 7500 on qvc it has the wider craft works out good for large stuff i dont have to cut nothing.
