Favorite Vitamix recipes/uses

My vitamix has shipped

I want to break it in right away. I could do sunbutter or coconut milk, but would love to know what you use it for

Re: Favorite Vitamix recipes/uses

I don't have time to share recipes, but yes, the Vitamix is amazing!! If you search for it, you'll find several posts about what people use it for. I've had mine for 9 months now, and love it! I use it for smoothies (it'll blend anything!), sauces (I make a great enchilada sauce in mine), sorbet type desserts, coffee drinks, hot chocolate, salsa, etc.

Green smoothies. I throw in two handfuls fresh spinach, about a cup of thawed frozen fruit, one frozen banana (frozen in chunks), one heaping tablespoon of flaxseeds and one cup water. If you want a super cold smoothie, don't thaw the frozen fruit.
