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!
PS- Please forgive the sideways smoothie pic. The silly computer loaded it sideways and I can’t get blogger to rotate it!
