How exciting – my Vitamix came in the mail! I didn’t get much chance to use it right away, but in the past few days I have successfully made ice cream, smoothies, capuccino, frozen frappes, almond milk, vegetable juice, and something that looks like poop (but tasted great). I am starting to think bananas irritate my mouth. I have put bananas in nearly everything I’ve made (everything that’s a drink base anyway) and I’m getting a stinging feeling on my lips and in the back of my throat. Is this something to worry about?
Who cares! The fact is, now that I have this amazing machine, not only can I obliterate ice into snow, make my own powdered sugar, and beat the heck out of some egg whites, I can also (hopefully) join the throngs of health freaks who put spinach in the blender and call it a “green smoothie.” (Apparently, they don’t just taste like spinach. I like spinach, but I wouldn’t have thought to combine it with ice cream.)
For lots of fun watching me fumble on camera, you can see me unboxing the beloved appliance here.
