I have wanted a Vitamix for sometime now and I finally saved up my money and purchased one. When it came I was so excited – like a kid on Christmas morning – I couldn’t wait to open it and start playing!
I have made some veggie smoothies – very different from my juicer – but had all the fiber packed in. The making and cleaning up was so much easier than with my juicer – and I felt full longer with the smoothies than the juice. Stella thinks the fruit smoothies I make for her are delicious and at first she thought I bought them at the shop down the street that makes smoothies. The really nice thing about the Vitamix is that it is so easy to use – Stella is now doing her own smoothies in it – yeah!
My first soup…..
Chilled Avocado and Cucumber Soup
1. Place all the ingredients into the Vitamix in the order listed and secure the lid. If you do not have a Vitamix you can do in a blender or food processor.
2. Put your Vitamix on variable 1, turn machine on and slowly increase speed to variable 10, then to high.
3. Blend for 45 seconds or until desired consistency is reached. Thin with additional water.
4. Pour into a container or bowl and chill.
Serve with a garnish of dill and/or a slice of cucumber.
