I may have to change the name of this blog from The Grain-Free Goddess, to The Vitamix Queen! Can you be in love with a kitchen appliance? I feel like a whole new dimension has been opened to me! Let’s juice! Let’s blend! Let’s make soup! This blender does everything but make the bed and clean the bathroom. No matter…look at all the extra time I will have because the Vitamix does everything else!
Here is my creation of the day. Don’t be alarmed by the color…it is absolutely delicious! What do they put in V-8 to make it so red anyway….
- 1/2 tomato
- handful of baby carrots (it is what I had…)
- handful of spinach leaves
- 1/2 bell pepper
- 1 large, peeled, garlic clove
- 10 drops of hot sauce (I like things spicy!)
- salt to taste
- 1 cup ice
- water to dilute to desired thinness
Put all ingredients in Vitamix. Start on lowest variable speed (1); turn up to 10, then to “high”. Tamp ingredients with tamper as needed. Add water to thin out if needed.
Pour in glass and enjoy!!
