I've gotten a bit addicted to smoothies, wanna hear more? READ ON my friends!
Iced latte / raspberry smoothie / spinach and banana smoothie / blueberry smoothie and beetroot and banana smoothie.
See how much the beetroot stained my fingers in that last shot? It's a powerful stain that stuff but makes such an amazing colour!
We recently got a Vitamix so I have been making smoothies almost daily (and that I have been obnoxiously uploading to IG too, sorry about that folks! ;)). It's been a lovely ritual to mix one up after breakfast and share a glass with Wilf as we slowly get ready for our day.
As well as smoothies I've been experimenting with soups too. I made this carrot one in around 5 mins which is pretty impressive and totally beats the standard unhealthy fast food! What's amazing about the Vitamix is that it's not just a blender, it can chop, blend, heat, grind, churn and chill! I've also been enjoying frappuccino's and cocktails with it (and if that isn't a good sign of a product then I don't know what is).
I'm hoping to share with you some of the things I make with it and hopefully some nice recipes to share too. I'm already thinking about a breakfast smoothie for tomorrow morning. One thing I think has really helped to make me prepared to always have yummy ingredients in the house is to buy my fruit frozen. That way I have a freezer draw full of blueberries, raspberries and other yummy stuff! I also want to start to use it to mix up some savoury treats too like hummus and nut butters. You can take a peek at some of their veggie and vegan recipes here too if you like.
Do you have any great smoothie suggestions I try?
