So my husband bought me a vitamix for my birthday and in the 6 days since I got it, I have used it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. This thing is crazy. I do smoothies a lot for breakfast but this is rediculous! I can make my regular smoothies but I also made some awesome drink concoctions for the kids. Orange/Strawberry, apple, and pink lemonade (just grapes, a slice of lemon-peel and all!, a couple of strawberries, and ice). Lunches have included soup which the thing heats up to steaming just from the high powered friction it produces. Tortilla soup with extra veggies like carrots, celery, and cabbage that tastes like restaurant soup cream of broccoli soup made with coconut milk are my favorites so far. I have made strawberry and raspberry puree, and homemade creamy ice cream- no ice cream machine needed.
I have been having so much fun learning how to use this thing. It is the perfect way to get more fruits and vegetables into a diet- easily! It has the ability to mill fresh whole grains but I haven’t ventured into that area yet.
This product just reinforces my love of my kitchen and food and food preparation. This will be one birthday present put to good use!
