Hi Meltingpot Readers,
All summer long, I was trying to teach my kids the value of money. So, we literally saved every penny we found on the street with the goal of purchasing something we all really wanted. Once you start looking, it’s amazing how many people walk over money in the street…if it’s a penny. Well, all of our pennies (and a few quarters, nickels and dimes) were enough to purchase half of a Vitamix blender. I added the other half of the funds and voila, we are officially a Vitamix family.
One of the first things I tried to make was a carrot/mango juice. I used fresh carrots and frozen mango chunks. Unfortunately, we didn’t make juice, we made carrot mango sorbet instead. It looked like this:
It was actually pretty tasty, but not exactly what I was hoping for. I clearly need a little bit more practice. But I’m seriously enjoying our new kitchen toy. Next up, el esposo and I are going to collaborate and create a real ‘kinky gazpacho,’ I’m thinking gazpacho with a little kick of spice. I’ll let you know what we come up with.
If you have any favorite Vitamix recipes, please, please, please share. I’m so totally listening.
(And dear readers, please note, I have no affiliation with the Vitamix company. I’m just totally obsessed with the product and can’t quite curb my enthusiasm.)
