Vegan & Gluten-Free apple, orange & mixed muesli breakfast smoothy

on 18/05/2012

Tasty breakfast smoothies!

My own Vitamix TNC 5200,..Ooh yeah, baby! :)

These breakfast smoothies I made this morning. I made this in what? Ooh yes, I am now a proud owner of a VITAMIX TNC 5200 power blender,…Ooh yeah , baby! I bought it in a certified International Vitamix dealer in Belgium. My husband & I had to drive 1 hour & 15 minutes to get it.

I wanted a Vitamix since ever,…I eat a lot of smoothies, make nut butters & make my own nut milks. Other blender’s just don’t & won’t work to make them!!! I read all about them on my friend’s food blogs. They love it & so will I: I made my 1st smoothy today! Invented it myself!

It is so easy to do so too! :) Enjoy it! I am still learning how to run it & am trying out new things! New recipes with the Vitamix will be coming soon! I also bought the fry container to grind my own whole grains. It is much cheaper that way. If you don’t know what a Vitamix is, then you must check out this stunning website: Vitamix.

Recipe: For 2 glasses, each 330 ml/ I ate the 2 smoothies!


1 juicy orange, peeled & pits removed, cut into 4

1 big green apple, core & pits removed, cut into smaller chunks

1 cup of unsweetened soy yoghurt/ I use Alpro

1/3 heaped cup of mixed gluten-free oat,dried fruits & nut muesli


1. Place the orange segments, the apple parts, the yoghurt & the mixed muesli in the Vitamix container. Place the fitting lid on, well closed.

2. Turn your Vitamix on, put variable speed & onto 1, turn higher onto 4 & then onto 7, turn the High button on & blend for about 30 seconds or until your liking. My smoothies were all finely mixed: Woehoe! This smoothy is so tasty! I am so happy that I bought it: It is all mine, all mine ,.. & of course my husband’s too! :) Happy eating!

    Hi Sophie, wow, what a great blender you have there! It will be smoothie time every day in your place from now on. Great recipe, quick and easy!

    Wow Sophie – lucky you! I would love a Vita Mix, especially to make nut milks and to grind my own flours. Can’t wait to see what recipes you come up with!

      Today, I made my own cashew milk from cashews that I soaked in water in the night, then drained & rinsed them well & it took only 1 minute to blend them with 4 medjool dates. I didn’t have to strain them! The taste is so good & it is so quickly to make too! :) It is the same recipe as on my blog before but I just added 4 medjool dates, pitted to the recipe to sweeten a bit!

    Ahh, Sophie, congrats!!!! You are officially in the exclusive Vita-Mix club! Wahooo! It’s the best blender EVER!!!!! These smoothies look fantastic!

    • Sophie33 says:

    Looks delicious!

  9. Lisa says:

    This smoothie not only looks fabulous, but, as always on your blog, so healthy! I love the combo of green apple with orange – you don’t often see them paired. I have to try it!

  10. hotlyspiced says:

    I would love one of those blenders. That is exactly what my kitchen is missing. That and an ice cream machine. Roll on Christmas! That smoothie sounds like a power-breakfast and looks good too xx

    • Sophie33 says:

      It is not a blender, it is more than that! :) It is a power machine with a motor that is 2.3 pk! It can reach 37.000 spins/ minute!! Ooh yeah, baby!

  11. What a nice and healthy breakfast Sophie. Owning your own Vitamix is definitely worth the drive.

  12. ruthmartins says:

    That is just so delicious and makes you feel good about yourself.

  13. ttholler says:

    Mmmmmmm, that does sound delicious!

  14. rebeccasubbiah says:

    great smoothie like a whole meal

  15. I’ve heard many good things about the Vita-mix, Sophie, and I know you will be whipping all kinds of wonderful treats in yours. This makes eating healthy a real pleasure.

    • Sophie33 says:

      Thank you, Cathy! I am still learing besides smoothies & juices what I can use it for but I am already experimenting with lots of things!

  16. Claudia says:

    I still do everything in a blender and probably always will. I can definitely do this lovely mixture in the blender! I always love your take on smoothies and this lives up to all of your creations.

  17. Carolyn Jung says:

    I have long coveted a Vitamix. One of these days, I’ve just got to break down and buy one for sure. ;)

    • Sophie33 says:

      They are still expensive over here! I bought mine for 575 Euros & the dry container for 90 Euros. That is a lot of money but I already have used it 3x/day!
