A Vitamix just entered our world and it’s pretty much a life changer. My parents gifted us an early anniversary present and we have used it every single day since. I had just a few minutes one day last week to whip up something for lunch between clients and after searching in the fridge and pantry, here’s what I ended up with:
1 cup almond milk
1 heaping tablespoon of sunflower seed butter
a few pitted medjool dates
The Vitamix has it’s own smoothie button so you don’t even have to start and stop, no need for shaking or mixing while it’s blending. I just placed all the ingredients in the blender, switched to smoothie mode and it’s done. FYI, the ice is supposed to go in the pitcher first, which I discovered after I poured all the ingredients in.
It honestly tasted like a dessert shake, not lunch. But full of protein. It was absolutely delicious and the perfect quick lunch I needed this day. The consistency was smooth, not gritty at all. Everything you've heard about this machine, it’s true.
Do you have any favorite smoothie recipes?
