For the longest time I have been lusting after a Vitamix. Anyone in the know knows that it is the Ferrari of blenders and is absolutely necessary in order to get that perfectly silky consistency often found at your favourite organic juice and smoothie bars. Needless to say when I was invited by Vitamix and the EPIC site The Feed Feed to dinner to celebrate the holidays I was in heaven. Being an avid, proud, and shameless stalker of the The Feed Feed since it’s inception I was itching to get started on my very own recipe for the holidays and since they graciously gifted me my very own Vitamix Ascent A3500 I figured this was the perfect opportunity to get in the kitchen!

 

But it’s the holidays and as obsessed with smoothies as I am I wanted to see if I could make something a little more festive (and indulgent) than the classic smoothie. So I figured why not cake? I mean a cake batter could definitely be mixed up in a blender and I figured that if everything was contained inside of the  Vitamix it would make clean up (my most despised activity) super simple. Sold. Hence my recipe for the  Vitamix Winter Spice Bundt Cake. Because there’s nothing that says holiday like a good winter spiced dessert. Plus I also just bought a new bundt cake pan. Ha, double win.

Cleaning Up

Thankfully  all Vitamix models come with a self cleaning option or should things be a little too sticky for your liking the new Vitamix Ascent A3500 containers are dishwasher safe. They know how to speak to this girl’s heart. Now excuse me but you and I both now have cake to eat.
