coconut milk, frozen cherries, a twist of Torani's sugar free chocolate syrup. IT'S LIKE CHERRY GARCIA, DUDE!
As the title says, I'm finally getting a vita-mix, been waiting to get one for a while, and I love shakes a lot. So...give me your favorite blending combinations.
Vita-Mix rocks. One of my favs is frozen organic stawberries and a few ice cubes. Depending how naturally sweet the berries are I will toss in a couple packs of splenda if needed or half a frozen banana
I love my vitamix! My current favorite is just coconut milk and frozen blueberries. I also love spinach, kale, half a pear, a couple of grapes, and ice.
It's also great for soups. I like to roast cauliflower then vitamix it with chicken stock, garlic and onion....makes a great "cream" soup base
I only just purchased one too!! It's my fave kitchen gadget EVER!! I love using coconut milk/frozen banana/spinach leaves/flaxseeds with a bit of cold water or coconut water to thin it out
I like mine but wish I could get a much smaller container for lots of jobs. I do a lot of soup puree.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Any given day you are surrounded by 10,000 idiots. Lao Tsu, founder of Taoism
My usual morning drink is coconut milk + peach + pineapple + strawberry + banana (or any combination thereof).
Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.
If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

I've had my Vita-mix for almost 15 years and it's still going strong, you're going to love it! That said, I'm having to re-learn what to do with mine. I used to use way too much fruit and add honey to most things. Never considered green smoothies so I'm in all new territory but it's a fun trip.
I usually have two parts vegetable, one part fruit, and a shot of protein powder.
Add enough water to reduce the pulp consistency.
For a creamier consistency, i highly recommend almond milk (or rice or soy milk).
The veggies are usually 1/2 green (e.g., bunch of kale or chard or spinach) and 1/2 sweet (e.g,. beet or carrot)
For the fruit, mango or strawberries is my favorite
I use "energizer" rice protein or "amazing grass" powder
