Allan and I love our Vitamix. We use it at least once a day and call it the best money we ever spent. Here are a few of the things we do with it.
Smoothies: Allan loves making breakfast smoothies. So far all fruit based. Next on my list is a green smoothie. I wish our smoothie prep area looked like this.
Almond milk: I make a litre of almond milk per week. The Vitamix will pay for itself quickly just using it for my almond milk.
Guacamole: The recipe in the little booklet with the Vitamix is the best guacamole I have ever tasted.
Piña Colada's and other crushed ice drinks: In my mind the Vitamix paid for itself before we left Hawaii, what with the drinks and guacamole. My old Kitchenaid Blender couldn't make this super smooth blended ice no matter how long you left it...the Vitamix does it in about ten seconds.
Tahihi: I eat a lot of Halvah. OMG it is so good. My favorite is marbled with chocolate. When I buy halvah, it says 'made with sugar or honey'. Trying to avoid GMOs, I don't trust the sugar. So I bought ten pounds of organic sesame seeds. Bring it on!
