What’s Cooking?

IMG_5876Bruno checks out my new Vitamix!

IMG_5877The first thing I make with it: a chocolate mint frappe


Green smoothies – bananas, frozen strawberries, and a huge handful of spinach
(fulfilling this week’s kitchen challenge).

One of my favorite features? It cleans itself! Fill it up half way with water, add some soap, and let it blend for a minute. A perfectly clean blender without having to scrub or take it apart.

I have been saving recipes that require a blender or food processor for the past year. I’m so excited to finally have my VitaMix! There are so many possibilities!

I also have I vitamix and love it! The possibilities are endless as far as what you can make in them.

Your smoothies look delicious! I am going to try adding spinach to our next ones.

I think it highly appropriate that you "christened" your Vitamix with a chocolate beverage. :D

I have a Vitamix but other than smoothies or puree-ing (sp?) soups, I haven't used it for much else.

Congrats on the new vitamix!
You will love it, if you don't already.
