{drink the rainbow! – “strawberry sunrise” vitamix juice}

8 Apr

i LOVE this one!

randomvitamix-11

– fresh strawberries

– frozen pineapple

– 1/4 frozen banana

– coconut water

randomvitamix-12

*glug glug* – what a pretty colour! cheers!

side-note : i use frozen bananas because i believe it takes over the flavour too much when using fresh, plus it’s a cheap way to save overripe bananas.  just chop ’em up and freeze ’em. then you can use a little at a time.  some things are just better fresh, and others work fine frozen – like berries or pineapple.  last week i just happen to catch fresh strawberries on sale, so i hooked it up!  plus, mixing it up with frozen and fresh helps the smoothie stay cold.  if you want to use only fresh ingredients, just make sure to throw in a little ice 🙂

      definitely yumm-o 🙂 i admit it was hard to justify that crazy price tag, but i am glad i did and know i’ll have it for years and years to come. many people i know have had theirs for at least a decade or longer… so it’s definitely an “investment” in the meantime, most of what i make can be made in a blender… it’s just not quite the same 😉

    yum! do you just play with the amounts until you get the desired texture?

      well, with the vitamix i almost always get the same texture or consistency, that’s part of the reason i love it and bought one! but typically it’s a ratio of about 1 parts fruit to 1 parts liquid. i just start with fruit and add liquid as needed. the vitamix pulverizes anything i put in it, so it’s really just a matter of thickness 🙂
