I’ve been coveting a Vitamix for a while now. They’re pretty pricey, but I just couldn’t get over all the rave reviews I’d heard. They make the best smoothies! They make flour! They make butter! They’ll change your life! Well, maybe not that last one, but seriously. I love a kitchen appliance that multitasks.
Last month I decided I wanted a Vitamix for my Mother’s Day/Birthday present. I saved up some money by selling my jogging stroller (kids are too big) and telling anybody who wanted to buy me a present to go in on the Vitamix fund.
And last week? I pulled the trigger and walked out of Costco the happy owner of a new Vitamix. Scratch that. I skipped out of Costco. Funny what kinds of things get me all giddy these days!
Since then, I’ve been a Vita-maniac, trying to use it for everything. The first night we had it, my son and I made soup. And by making soup, I mean we put all the ingredients in the blender, turned it on high for five minutes and we had soup.
Maybe this thing IS life changing.
Anyhow, I figured I could channel my new obsession into a Pinterest roundup. Cause I need some new ideas. And of course, many of these recipes you could do in another brand of blender.
Enjoy these recipes and I’ll be in the kitchen, hanging out with the ‘precious’.
