Another cheat day meal to the repertoire….but if you can’t have a cheat day meal on Mothers day, when can you have a cheat meal ??
I have to admit I had never made waffles before. As I was recipe researching I was concerned that I’d have to separate my eggs and fold the whites into the batter. Instead I thought I’d take a risk and throw everything into the Vitamix and they turned out so soft and fluffy. No folding required. I was really impressed with the result and the berry nice cream was a great accompaniment! Also how cute are the love heart waffles 🙂
I’m desperate to try these again as they were so easy. Loved using my new Vitamix Ascent, it such a great machine and looks so fancy in my kitchen as well!!
If you’ve been following me for a while you will know that Vitamix has been such an important appliance for my health journey. I’m not joking I use this machine at least once a day. Everything from smoothies, nut milks, dips and spreads, brownies, waffles, pesto (SO MANY options). Their new Ascent range is the only true high-performance blender with wireless connectivity and a system of SELF-DETECT™ containers and accessories, delivering the ultimate convenience and versatility, both at home and on the go.
Not only does the Vitamix Ascent make my life a whole lot easier in the kitchen it also looks the part on my counter top! It definitely has that ‘designer’ kitchen look and is something I am proud to have on show! It is the perfect gift for Mothers Day and this recipe will put a smile to any busy mum trying to implement healthier choices 🙂
Hope you enjoy this recipe! Happy blending 🙂

- Preheat the waffle iron….I bought this one from Williams Sonoma.
- For the waffles: place everything into a high speed blender and blend until combined. I use the Vitamix Ascent.
