Frequently Asked Questions
Can Vitamix Blend Dry Grind?
Yes! In order to get the best dry blend grind, make sure your ingredients are small and evenly sized before you add them to the container. The Vitamix blades move from one side of the container to the other, so a finer, uniformly mixed result is better than using a food processor.
Can I Grind Turmeric In Vitamix?
Yes! Vitamix can do anything! To grind turmeric, simply add the dry spice to the dry Vitamix container and run for 10-20 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
Can You Grind Cinnamon Sticks In A Vitamix?
Yes. However, cinnamon sticks can be more difficult to grind than nutmeg and cloves because they usually don’t form a fine powder. You may want to use the Vitamix dry container for this instead of wetted blades as it will more evenly mix without clumping. The trick is to increase the speed as you run the blender on pulse mode and continue grinding until desired consistency is achieved.
Can You Grind Peppercorns In Vitamix?
Yes, you can grind peppercorns in Vitamix. In order to do so, you will have to use the dry container and set it to pulse.
Do you want to make your own curry powder?
Don’t waste money on pre-made spice blends when you can make them yourself in just minutes!
