Creating with the Vitamix!

Hey folks!

Hope all is splendid with you!  One of the highlights of last week was the delivery of my brand new Vitamix courtesy of my very generous mother!  It's my Christmas gift and words can't express my excitement over my new toy!  I have been jonesin' for a Vitamix for quite some time and when I put that baby to use over the weekend, I was in Heaven!

The first thing I whipped up on Saturday morning was a smoothie of course! I blended a ruby red grapefruit, mangoes, banana and strawberries! It was smooth, tangy and on point! I then made another green smoothie containing coconut water, romaine lettuce, apple, pear, cucumber, banana and a few dates.  I make a variation of the latter everyday and I could DEFINITELY tell the difference in consistency using the Vitamix versus my regular blender. 

Finally, I made homemade pasta sauce later in the day when I was doing my meal prep for the week. The sauce was to go over the zucchini "noodles" I would be preparing.  I got the recipe from the cookbook "Peas and Thank You" and OH.MY.GOODNESS.!! I don't think I will EVER buy sauce from the store again.  This sauce-words just can't do justice to how perfect it is! I had my "pasta" tonight for dinner and it was amazing.  I sauteed some onion and mushrooms with the zucchini noodles (the noodles are achieved by using a vegetable peeler to peel the zucchini into ribbons) and topped it with the sauce and I savored every bite! This sauce will be showing up frequently!
Best Pasta Sauce Ever!

I can't wait to make so many more creations and share them with you!  If you have some great recipes I can whip up in the Vitamix, please let me know in the comments!  Have a great week!
