{thirsty thursday} — my morning vitamix smoothie

24 Jan

vitasmoothie-1

this has been on the menu for a few weeks now.  eventually i’ll switch it up and try new things.  but i have had a lot going on in my life as of late – however, i believe the dust is finally starting to settle.  and no, i don’t have measurements for you – i just wing it! 🙂  i try to use all organic products, as well… for many reasons.  i ought to write a blog on organics soon…

– frozen strawberries

– frozen blackberries

– frozen cherries

– fresh kale or spinach

– 1/2 banana {a whole one takes over the flavour!}

– 1/2 pear {seeds included}

– a few dates {pitted}

– orange juice

– grape juice

– almond milk

– raw protein powder {this is my favourite}

– flax seeds

– maca root powder {a smidge – stuff is potent!}

throw it all in that amazing vitamix machine on high and blend for about a minute – the consistency is so awesome with the vitamix!  i highly recommend investing in one.  it’s totally worth it!  i can’t wait to experiment more with other things like soups and nut butters… !

SLAINTE!

    My girlfriend just ordered one of those magical machines and I’m crazy jealous!!! Except I never really use blenders for anything…I just LOVE kitchen gadgets!

        Thanks. I’ll see if they have it at Whole Foods. We’ve had a VitaMix for over twenty years and love it.

        I don’t have any special recipes. I do make bread in it a lot, after I grind the grain. You have to eat it within a couple of days, though, because it spoils quickly. Mso nutritious and delicious! My favorite combo for breakfast is green grapes, a whole orange, half a banana, fresh pineapple, a sliver of lime, and some spinach. It comes out a lovely shad of green. I do add a tiny bit of honey for my honey. He likes it a little sweeter than I do.
