I am a Vitamix Affiliate!!

This is very exciting for me!! I am a FIRM believer in spreading the word about products so when I received the opportunity to be a Vitamix Affiliate I was beyond ecstatic! I received my Vitamix as a birthday gift....and let me tell you it was a long time coming! I have been hinting bugging the husband for one for the past 5 years or so. As a group effort an investment towards my future addiction was made, and I couldn't be happier!

During the first few in store demos that we watched I was impressed, but admittedly not THAT impressed. Until....the demonstrator made Tortilla Soup. Impressed level...8/9 out of 10, then he turned right around and made sorbet...in seconds. Impression level...12 out of 10! I was immediately hooked from that moment on. Yes the Vitamix can whip up smoothies in seconds, sorbet in less than a minute, and HOT soup start to finish in about 10 minutes. Yes, I said HOT! Everything that I make seems to impress me in a different way, and I have been using the Vitamix multiple times a day.

Nothin Like Apple Pie {Smoothies}

Ummm YUM!!!

I will take have to remember to take pictures of all the yummy stuff I'm making in my Vita-Mix...but I don't remember until my glass is half empty!!

Tonight was the Apple Pie Smoothie found on Vita-Mix Recipes. I was wanting something sweet, different, and used apples that I have in the fridge.

Apple Pie Smoothie
frozen banana 1
peeled apple 1/2
apple juice 8 oz.
cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon
nutmeg pinch

Blend. Great substitute for applesauce! Control the consistency by adding more or less chopped apple.

My banana wasn't frozen and I didn't have nutmeg, I added a couple ice cubes and blended away!! It was delicious, like a liquid cinnamon-y applesauce!


Everyday I'm Vitamix-in'!!!

I fell in love with Vitamix 5 years ago and have been dropping not so subtle hints to the hub & my mom since then!! The hub knows the wonderfulness of Vitamix (he's in love with the Chicken Tortilla Soup & the green smoothie from the demo) and my mom loves all things kitchen and cooking gadgets but hasn't been graced by the presence of Vitamix..YET!

For my birthday the hub & my parents & a little from myself went in together & I FINALLY got one :) YAY!! Yes I know, I know...I'm spoiled. But in my defense...it's SOOOOO worth it and I've only had it 2 days!

I have made 2 concoctions so far and love both!!

Yesterday for breakfast I (sorta) made the Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie from the Vitamix site.

Peanut Butter - Banana Smoothie

ripe bananas, peeled, frozen 2
milk 16 oz
creamy peanut butter 2 oz
sugar 2 tablespoons
imitation banana extract 1 teaspoon

Yield: 2

Place all ingredients in a Vita-Mix® blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately.

My bananas weren't frozen, and I didn't add the sugar or extract but it was AMAZING!! I poured it into a blender bottle and took it to work with me. I drank both servings and was full until dinner time!

The taste was great! Like a banana covered in peanut butter, and the consistency was about like a melted milkshake..not milky but not thick either.

I decided to make it when I brought the boy home from school and he chugged it right down & said it was tasty!

Tonight I came up with another concoction. I'm sure its been made before but it was also a hit!!

2 bananas
1 naval orange
4 pineapple slices (all I had was canned)
1/2 of the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple slices
apple juice

Blended until smooth & its oh so goood!!! Very tropical and refreshing!

I cannot wait to make more stuff and pass my addiction on to other unsuspecting Vitamix lovers!

Do you have a Vitamix? If so what's your favorite concoction?
