  • The Vitamix Smoothie Challenge

    41.3750° N, 81.9082° W

    "Submit your smoothie recipe for a chance to win a Vitamix Machine"


    Now that we’re a month into the New Year, have you been able to uphold your resolutions? We have! At Cafe Troy we have dedicated ourselves to a healthier diet. We’ve been using our Vitamix E310 Explorian Series blender to substitute meals with smoothies, which is ideal for our on-the-go lifestyles. If you’ve never heard of Vitamix’s E310 Explorian Series blender, that’s because it’s brand new and it will be released in Canada this coming March.

    The Vitamix’s E310 Explorian Series blender is an unfussy way to create simple, yet delicious dishes. We particularly like the vintage-esque feel of the E310. On the surface, there are only a few knobs and switches but the 2.2-horsepower motor encased within the base is capable of handling heavy tasks. The first switch to the left initiates the “Pulse Feature” which delivers steady chops to the ingredients allowing for chunkier dips. At the center is the Variable Speed Control knob, and to the right is the power switch.

    We have teamed up with Vitamix to give you an opportunity to win their brand new E310 machine so that you can embark on this journey with us!
