Three Days of Vitamix!

My oldest daughter and her husband just purchased a Vitamix for each other for their anniversary.
They watched the demonstration at Costco yesterday.
Sure to sell you.
I'm positive of that.

So, I had purchased a Vitamix months ago.  
I literally purchased it to go on that Dr. Oz cleansing.  Remember?
Well, that was absolutely the worst, grossest, most obnoxious "fad" thing I have ever done.

I gagged to the finish line.

J called me last night and told me all of the wonderful things that the Vitamix does!
So, my challenge to myself starts today.
I am going to challenge myself for three days.
Vitamix - total breakfast
total lunch
partial dinner

What in the world does that mean?
Well, I'm doing my entire breakfast and lunch from Vitamix recipes (my own)
and then I'll make components to my dinner with the Vitamix.

I am going to blog 3 x a day for the next 3 days!

First up.

Berry Breakfast Smoothie

This is what I used:
 1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1 banana
4 whole strawberries (with green tops)
handful of Kale
1 tbsp.  coconut butter
2 tbsp. Greek vanilla yogurt
 about 15 almonds

this is what it looks like after you dump all the ingredients

blend on high for about 45 seconds


*note - if I do this again, I will use about 6 ice cubes because it was just a little too creamy.

until lunch!!!

  1. Love my vitamix. Try my favorite smoothie...1/2 cup of water, 1 orange (peeled, but pith left on), half a banana, 2 handfuls of fresh spinach leaves and 1/2 cup of ice. Blend on the frozen setting and enjoy! Delish! You'll love it!
