i was blessed to receive a vitamix as a gift just a coupleof weeks ago. i have wanted one since i saw them at the texas state fair last fall. the demonstrations totally won me over. pops and i had at least 3 samples. well this thing is awesome! i have made a smoothie at least every other day. this thing is so powerful. just today i made one with yogurt, kiwi, apple, grapes, a clementine, spinach and carrots and it was delicious.  all the fruit covers up the taste of the spinach, so i am getting my vegetables in too!

the best part is that you don't have to dice and peel stuff, you can just throw it in! if i am putting an apple in my smoothie, i just quarter it and toss it in.  even if you use fresh pineapple, you just have to skin it, you don't have to core it - crazy huh! and this thing is so powerful that it truly makes your smoothie smooth. no chunks, just goodness.
creamy spinach and chicken potato soup
 last week, olivia and i also made soup in the vitamix. yup you read that right, soup. this thing spins to fast that it heats stuff up too. our soup was piping hot when it was done.  we had to precook the chicken and the potatoes before putting them in, but everything else we just tossed right on in and it was delicious.

next on my list is to try to make rice milk, soy milk, and hummus. hmm...
