We. We're looking at a vitamix & decided on a Ninja from Costco. (FYI they sell them at Walmart now too- for cheaper! But I think it's only 1 blender, not the smaller pitcher?)
Anyways, we mainly use ours for smoothies & bean brownies. I've also made coconut butter out of shredded unsweetened coconut & a few spoonfuls of coconut oil. We haven't used the smaller bowl... U should get it out for the batters. The blender definately has to work some to process the beans & coconut, the coconut took probably 10 mind with me stopping to scrape the sides down frequently. But overall I'm satisfied with it!
