With a glut of veggies and fruits all threatening to go bad at once, I've been putting anything and everything in the Vitamix. Some have been good and some have been fails, but even with the fails, the verdict from Big Spazz is, "that thing blends the hell out of everything." He finally knows what my green chai smoothie is supposed to look like, although he kind of misses the dregs of dates in his cup from our old machine.
|In the blender: carrots, onion, garlic, veg broth, silky tofu, minced ginger|
|Carrot ginger soup with clouds of floating silky tofu|
|A real chai smoothie, no furikake kale to get stuck in my teeth|
|Leftover fruit salad from this weekend, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 4 cups of ice|
The kale chai smoothie was nice and creamy and with the bigger container, I had enough to save for another day.
The melon ice was a winner. It tasted fresh and cool on this muggy night and even though I don't like any melons, this hit the spot.
We loves our Vitamix :-)
