Goodbye Trusty Sunbeam and Hello Vitamix
I have wanted to get a Vitamix for a VERY long time and could never ever justify outlaying the $$$ (you can pay between $700 and $1000 depending where you buy it from).
I finally bit the bullet and ‘just did it’! And I am so glad that I did!
It was christened with the making of a Green Smoothie yesterday! My first kale green smoothie made at home that didn’t still have ‘bits’ of kale floating around.
Then today it got a workout making vege juice for breakfast and raw green curry soup for lunch 🙂
Here is my green smoothie recipe:
1/4 lemon, just remove skin
3 kale leaves, destemmed and rinsed
1 apple, quartered
1 frozen banana (or a fresh banana but replace water with ice)
1 stick celery
1 cup water (or ice cubes)
And BLEND… magically after less then 30 seconds you will have a perfectly smooth and perfectly blended green smoothie that totally rocks and is sure to give you a vitality BOOST!
Drink straight away to minimise oxidation of nutrients – that way you get maximum benefit of the vitamins, minerals and the all important cancer fighting phytochemicals that you have just whizzed up 🙂
Good bye my trusty sunbeam – it is into the bottom of the cupboard for you… mind you – you have been soooo awesome over the past 3 years – used almost daily to blend smoothies for my kids and I 🙂
Drink well and be well,
