My new Vitamix: VeganMoFo # 14

I'm a Veganwannabe: Post #14

Hail to the Vitamix. Seriously. Why did I wait so long to treat myself to one of these babies? This is a ‘reconditioned’ model, which I found on their site, by organizing my purchasing options from lowest price to highest price. Have you seen how much these guys cost?! My new blogger friend, Livvy, suggested this to me and I didn't hesitate to try it! I saved hundreds of dollars!!! No kidding.

First thing I made is found on page one of the Vitamix cookbook – Garden Fresh Cocktail. I actually laughed out loud when I heard how quiet the machine is and how fast is goes.

Question: Am I silly to believe that my Garden Fresh Cocktail would turn out as gloriously rosy as the one in the picture? I guess that's what spinach will do to a smoothie! 

Actually – it was A+ delicious. J  

Next Post: Cauliflower and Potato Soup...
all whirled to a wonderfully silky texture in my newest kitchen friend. 


  1. you will be glowing after drinking all your delicious cocktails:) Have a good week!

  2. It looks like you're having great fun with your new toy! A helpful kitchen appliance is a great addition to the household, especially ones that are quiet and fast. :-)

  3. Do you know (and maybe you do) that the Vitamix is a great tool for making nut flours? I have a lot of recipes calling for almond flour, but the packaged stuff is ridiculously high priced. The Vitamix works just fine and saves me money! Have fun with yours.

  4. @Patti - I am thinking about making some chickpea flour. I found a really interesting chickpea flatbread.

  5. Ah!! You went for it! Congrats on your new arrival ;) Mine hasn't let me down yet - luv that thing!

  6. You'll be pureeing everything for a while, I guarantee it, lol. Mine is a reconditioned one too, and I've had it for nearly 8 years and it gets used daily. Enjoy experimenting!


Thanks for stopping by my Living Cookbook! I appreciate each and every comment!
