Not gonna lie, I’ve received some pretty awesome gifts in my lifetime. But the Vita-mix would definitely be in the top 3. I don’t mean to rub it in, but it’s seriously the best. kitchen. appliance. ever.
I literally use the thing at LEAST once a day. Usually more. Here are some of my basic Vita-mix ideas.
Banana Ice Cream
- 6 cubes of frozen soy milk
- splash of not-frozen soymilk
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 packets stevia
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
Throw the banana and splash of not-frozen soymilk into the blender and start blending. Slowly add your cubes of frozen soymilk and blend blend blend. (If you have a vitamix, you can just throw it all in at once.) Toss in the stevia and blend!
Top with peanut butter and/or granola. Eat ice cream for breakfast, and rejoice knowing that it only has ~200 calories (give or take the pb+granola) but tastes like a huge bowl of super creamy ice cream.
But tonight, I wanted to try something NEW in the Vita-mix. So I thought, why not make my own peanut butter? Can’t be that hard!
I started by measuring 2 cups of roasted, salted TJ’s peanuts, then I started blending in the Vita-mix, and added ~ 1tbsp of honey…
And in about 5 minutes, I had my very own jar of peanut butter!
YUM!!! It’s creamy and crunchy and sweet and salty and amazing! I’m REALLY excited to top my ice cream with this tomorrow morning 😉
I’m thinking next time I’ll make almond butter…
Which brings me to the question… what’s your favorite nut butter?
Ioana / Problema cainilor maidanezi pare sa fie o poveste fara sfarsit dar poate ca acesta abordare noua, de responsabilitate civica in problema cainilor fara stapan este solutia mult asteptata. Daca vom intari legislatia cu privire la adopiile de caini si ii vom responsabiliza pe cei aleg sa adopte animale vom intra intr-o stare de normalitate.
The abiitly to think like that shows you’re an expert
My Vita Mix was the greatest investment we ever made…..EVER!
I like plain old peanut butter! Actually my favorite at the moment is Trader Joe’s peanut butter with roasted flax seed.
JEALOUS!! Gosh I want one so badly lol. Actually just a food processor would be good enough. Something so that I can make my own nutbutters and give them as gifts as well as try all the raw treats I want too!!
