What was my life like before my best friend bought us Vitamixers at Costco 7 years ago? "Quieter," my husband would say.
This loud and expensive blender has transformed my breakfast and my life! My kitchen has never been equipped with high tech, fancy appliances. But after purchasing my Vitamixer; I realized it didn't need it to be.
From all kinds of smoothies, to nut butters and nut milks; to puddings, soups and delicious desserts; eating is so much more fun and simple with my Vitamixer.
So what's not to love?
My morning smoothie usually consist of a variety of nut milks; from almond, cashew, coconut or coconut water. I add either spinach, kale, or collards, frozen fruit, (usually mangos and blueberries) then fresh herbs from my back deck, fresh ginger and plant based protein powder.
Some of my other favorite add-ins: chia, flax, hempseeds, spirlina, bee pollen, maca powder, cacao, nut butter.
Don't be afraid to try different combinations. My shake today was loaded with fresh mint, grated ginger and lime. It had a kick to it...just what I needed!
