      What would be a good substitute for banana? I have a banana sensitivity and can't eat them any more.

        This is a smoothie I made last night. It makes an entire 60 ounce Vitamix Blenderful and I divide it into three servings and consume one right away and store the other two servings in sealed mason jars:

        Green Smoothie:
        20 oz filtered water
        2 cups spinach
        3 oranges
        2 cups of red grapes
        2 cups of Dole Frozen mixed fruit (from Sam's club - contains pineapple, mango, peach and strawberry).

          for flavor or texture? Personally I think super ripe, slippery, squishy, juicy mangoes are the way to go

            I make smoothies for my kids almost every morning. Our basic is, well...very basic. Frozen berries (blue, rasp, and marion), heavy cream, stevia if the berries aren't sweet, almond milk. I don't measure. They also like carrot cake smoothie-carrots, apples, pineapple, coconut milk, cinnamon, optional avocado. I make kefir at home and when it's not going into ranch dressing, it goes into what ever I'm blending up. Actually, I use a food processor for my smoothies. We're a big family, with lots of teen appetites and my 20 cup processor lets me do it all in one batch.

              Extra-Protein Primal Eggnog

              1 T gelatin, dissolved in a small amount of lukewarm water
              3–4 eggs
              1 banana
              vanilla extract
              ~ 1/2–1 C heavy cream (or plain yogurt, if one prefers a more tart drink)
              coconut milk, anywhere from 1 T to 1 C
              freshly-grated nutmeg

              After the gelatin is dissolved in the water, add all ingredients to blender and mix thoroughly. (The gelatin will make the drink a bit lumpy in texture; if this is an issue, after it's dissolved in the cool water add a bit of very hot water to it and it will dissolve completely.)

              I haven't put strict measures on the liquids because it's really up to one's taste/preferences. Use more cream and coconut milk if you prefer a less eggy nog. If bananas are an issue, it can be omitted; I use about 1 t. of maple syrup as a sweetener in that case.

                      Not sure. I see a lot of recipes for baked goods and for smoothies that call for a half or whole banana. The recipes sound awesome, but I'm not sure how they would turn out if I completely omit the banana or sub something else. I'm guessing the banana probably serves a purpose in the baked goods besides just sweetening, but am not sure.

                        I have the "Super Total Nutrition Center" Vitamix. Bought it in 1997 and it's still going strong 14 years later! I had wanted one for a couple of years and my husband said there was no way we were going to spend over three hundred dollars on a "blender". I tried to convince him that it was way more than just a blender, and would be a good investment, but he didn't want to hear it. Then I won the Civilian of the Year award for my entire Air Force Base and that award came with a nice cash bonus. He agreed to let me spend my award money on the Vitamix and I've been loving it ever since. Several of my friends on another forum got started on the "Green Smoothie Challenge" and their blenders died on them. Several of them went through several cheap blenders before deciding to go ahead and invest in a Vitamix or a Blendtec. The people who were using the cheaper blenders also complained about the consistency of the smoothies. The cheap blenders weren't blending the spinach up all the way and they were drinking some solid bits of spinach and didn't like that sensation.

                        My Vitamix was truly a worthwhile investment. I've used it to make soups, chop vegetables, make smoothies, grind my own nut butters, make home-made mayonnaise, and I've even used it to make some incredibly tasty Primal ice cream lately! To make dairy-free ice cream in a Vitamix, you add one cup of coconut milk and 4 cups of frozen strawberries (or other frozen fruit), and turn the Vitamix on for 30 seconds and use the tamper to push the frozen fruit into the blades. This process makes delicious soft-serve ice cream every time!

                          I have a BlendTec. Love it. I had a VitaMix, but I wore it out in less than 4 years. They repaired it, but it went out again in a year. I had purchased it at Costco. They took it back and I bought the BlendTec. So far, it's been great.

                            (So, how similar is my recipe to yours?)

                              What model is your blendtec?

                                Nice! Yea I like how it replaces a lot of gadgets in your kitchen. I am trying to live by "Less is More" and so if I can afford something like this then I say why not. I mean I LOVE nut butters so it would be awesome if I could just buy the nuts which are cheaper and make nut butter myself more easily!

                                Did you get rid of any of your kitchen appliances after you got your vitamix?
