Some helpful tips that I’ve learned along the way. **This page may include affiliate links which means if you click on one of the product links I may receive compensation from the seller. **
Tip No. 1
Liquids go in first. Yes, liquid. Followed by your softer, lighter items and then your frozen items/ice. I’m not sure why but I always thought the right way to do this was ice first since it required the most work to be broken down. The liquid allows the other items to float and not get caught underneath the blades.
Tip No. 2
Always clean your blender straight away if at all possible. The easiest way is to fill with a bit of warm water and a drop of liquid detergent and pulse to clean. If you have Vitamix Pro 750 you can use the cleaning pre-set. Rinse with water and you are ready to start blending again. If you can’t clean it immediately, fill it with warm water so that the remnants don’t dry in your blender jar.
Tip No. 3
To avoid any messes, don’t forget to leave some room at the top of the blending container for expansion. Hold the lid down too!
