Yesterday I was making dinner when I heard Nate come in after work. I had the refrigerator door open so I peeked out to say hi, grabbed whatever veggies I was looking for and closed the door. Lo and behold...there on the floor was a large blue fabric bag tied up with a very cute spring green ribbon. When I opened the bag and saw the VitaMix box, I felt like a kid on Christmas! He bought us a VitaMix!!! He said he was going to save it for Mother's Day but he knew I would want it for my daily green smoothies. (Yesterday's smoothie required the use of two old blenders since neither of them works very well.)
So I fired it up this morning...this thing is amazing! I could not believe how quickly and efficiently it liquefied my kale and swiss chard. One of the things that has frustrated me about our other blender is the fact that I have to blend FOREVER to make a less-than-chewy smoothie. Not so with the VitaMix!
I read that I can make frozen desserts in this thing, so the boys and I are going to try to make some sort of chocolate, coconut milk-based soft-serve...
I never, in a million years, would have thought I'd be so excited about a blender, but it's a VITAMIX!!!
