Day in the Life of my Vitamix
Hi, what’s excitement is happening in your kitchen right now?
Before I get started just wanted to remind you that you are running out of time if you want to grab yourself Russell James’ Homestudy Program for 33% off plus all the extra bonuses. Go here to find out more!
Usually I start my day off with some kind of smoothie and I try to make it a green one.
Unfortunately, blueberries win out so the spinach doesn’t get much of a view when you add it on. This is my Berry Berry ‘Greenish’ Smoothie I featured yesterday’s post.
Then it’s on to mid morning where I have taken my almond meal from a previous day of making almond milk, out of the dehydrator.
Time to whip up some almond flour for Ron*
Then I store it in the freezer for another day, another recipe.
Then it’s onto lunch. Salad. Yes please. What has this got to do with the Vitamix you ask?
Lemon Love Dressing Ingredients: Olive oil, lemons, black pepper, himalayan pink salt, and raw honey (from Oklahoma).
This is seriously my GO TO dressing at the moment. I may or may not have eaten the remainder as it set into a pudding in the fridge. Oops!
I’ll share the recipe tomorrow
This dressing rocks with rocket/arugula, fennel and grapefruit.
Then onto dessert. As we didn’t have any frozen bananas at the ready, soft serve icecream was not going to happen, but since the hubs mentioned strawberry milk at the dinner table, I decided to create my own raw vegan version.
2 cups of almond milk, 1 cup of frozen strawberries (seriously, what is my obsessions with the strawbs of late?), 1 t coconut butter, 2 fresh bananas 1 T agave nectar, dash of lemon juice, dash of vanilla extract and pinch of salt.
Strawberry Milk indeed.
Of course each day differs with what recipes I tend to make, however this post is pretty typical of my usage amount, as it never really gets any less than this on a typical day. Dressings, smoothies, ice creams, puddings, sauces, you name it, there is so much this little powerful fella can do. And like my hubs said to me yesterday as we bundled up our old supermarket blender to sell yesterday, it’s no VITAMIX – you’d never go back.
