    Ok, I'm FINALLY getting a vita-mix. Hit me up with favorite shakes recipes?

    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 like mine but wish I could get a much smaller container for lots of jobs. I do a lot of soup puree.

    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
