Video: Making a smoothie with Joel Johnson and the Vita-Mix 5200

How many times does one man get to watch another man make a Smoothie in the comfort of his wood paneled home? Well, Joel at BBG shared his experience with the Vita-Mix 5200 blender, a $450 uber-blender that reduces frozen fruit to “fruit slop” in seconds.

The blender is quite powerful yet he notes that its “laudable blending ability doesn’t even make itself apparent unless you’re blending quite a bit of food at once.” The same can be said of my lower intestine.
