Some of you know that I have a fairly recent addition to my kitchen. A recent addition that I LOVE so far. You would love it, too. It's my Vitamix blender. The other blenders are going in the garage sale that will happen in a few weeks.
The Vitamix is AMAZING! It can do anything a regular blender can do, plus make soup. SOUP! It will heat the water and everything. I am definitely going to take advantage in a few weeks when the weather starts cooling down. :)
This morning, I had a smoothie and an almond butter waffle sandwich. YUM! Smoothies are great because they are very forgiving. Hope you have fun experimenting with different fruit combinations!
Frozen Fruit Chunks (I got a bag from Costco that has pineapple, papaya, mango and strawberries)
agave nectar or sugar
1. Fill up your cup with fruit chunks-- the cup you intend to drink out of. Once the fruit chunks are in there, pour the milk in to the halfway mark, then add water until the cup is 3/4 full of fruit and liquid. Add about a TBSP of agave nectar or sugar. Dump it all into the blender.
2. Give it a whirl until all the fruit is crushed up and it has the proper consistency. Add more liquid if needed-- the Vitamix is great because it has a plunger stick that helps all the fruit get down to the blade.
3. Pour into the cup you measured with, stick in a straw, and sip. Now GET TO WORK!! :)
Have a happy day!
