      My favorite is simole. I my bike commute year round. I love it but but it means that I need more energy in the morning but have less time because of my hour commute. No more tofu scramble or pumpkin pancakes. Making a green smoothie each morning saves me time, gives me an energy boost, adds water to my diet, decreases dirty dishes and ensures that I fit fruits and veggies into my busy schedule. Green smoothies have changed my day. Every day.

    • Lara
      04.26.2016

      My favorite recipe to blend is my homemade marinara sauce! It takes less than ten minutes and is easily adjustable for different serving sizes! All I do is saute compari tomatoes, kalamata olives, green bell pepper, onion, garlic and a secret ingredient 😉 once it is fragrant and warm I throw it in, blend and serve immediately over zucchini noodles, chicken or veggies! I chose to blend this mixture because in addition to the warmth the sauteeing brings to my sauce, blending it makes it hot and ready to serve! I would enjoy experimenting with the vitamix 🙂 follow me on _littlemissfoodie on instagram!

    • Homemade avocado mayonnaise. Yum!

      I toast sesame seeds, then puree them with egg yolks, mustard and vinegar for the most delicious salad dressing. I put it on baby kale with some salt and pepper and it is divine. My friend Dan who owned DABA in Hudson, NY turned me on to it.

    I’m fairly new to vegan cooking and found your blog over the weekend. I am so excited about all of the lovely recipes and just ordered your book. I can’t wait until it gets here! The first recipe I tried was your healthy loaded vegan nachos. We were blown away! I would definitely say creamy, cheesy blended sauces are a favorite.

    My current blended favorite is a Chocolate Avocado smoothie – chocolate protein powder, spinach, avocado, cocoa powder and almond milk. So delicious!

    Smoothies of course, but also dressings and tahini sauce.

    Smoothies are definitely my favorite, but I love to make a nice “creamy” blended soup! I like to use white beans to get a creamy-consistency.

  11. Carli
    04.25.2016

    Smoothies are my every day morning go to but the creamy tomato white bean soup was probably one of my favorite blender soups so far. Cashew sauce is pretty tasty too. Yum!

    OOHH that Vitamix is a dream! I love making soups and vegan cheese (I’m looking into transitioning to vegan) I think a Vitamix would do the job perfectly.

    I will have to get your cookbook asap – there are so many recipes I want to try!

  16. Julie
    04.25.2016

    I love blended soups! One of my favorites uses carrots, red lentils, and Moroccan spices, though I am currently eating a blended black bean soup based heavily on a recipe I found on your site!

  17. lezmachine
    04.25.2016

    Cashew cheeeeeese. Yes, yes, yes.

  18. I have loved following your blog for a while now. I tend to make the entire recipe, and enjoy it for dinner and then lunch the next day! I’m a big advocate for your blog in the lunchroom ;). Oh – and I love gazpacho soup in the Vitamix!

    Gosh! I have got to say that I am a huge fan of pesto. Basil pesto, arugula pesto, decadent pesto with a smidgen of cheese or hazelnut, sky’s the limit. Then using them on roasted veggies or pasta or a dipping sauce. Goodness. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 🙂

  43. It’s a toss-up between healthy smoothies and killer vegan queso. Life’s all about balance ;).

  46. Meike

    i have this one smoothie that i love to make once summer comes around. it is packed full with ingredients, but so wonderful for cleaning out the digestive system and feeling clean & fresh in the summer. it includes :: strawberries, blueberries, mango, spinach, kale, bananas, hemp powder, oats, and of course, water. or, if i am feeling like i want something sweet, i will just do :: bananas, blueberries, cacao powder, and water ( and a touch of spinach to include those nutrients but not taste it too much ).

    My favorite thing is more of a memory because they don’t make the mix anymore. One of my childhood best friend’s mother always made these shakes for us in the blender on a hot summer day. They were some shake mix with a little milk and some ice and they were awesome! My friend has since passed away, but there isn’t a time when I don’t think about those shakes we always had together.

    When we had a blender (it broke last month) the kids liked to make their own sauce for homemade pizza’s .
    They would take tomatoes,garlic,pine nuts,spinach,parsley,olives,roasted red and green peppers, olive oil and some spices and blend it all together to make the sauce.

    I am currently a fan of the classic banana – almond milk, and also but add a scoop of pea protein powder, a scoop of fiber and 1 tsp of flax oil, so it holds me for 4 hours until lunch.

    In peach season, i will definitely switch to the peach, ginger.

    Hi – I’m Emma and I’m a soup-a-holic. It’s not just a phase I’m going through during the cold winter months here in Vermont, I LOVE and am OBSESSED with really great soups. So when a friend gave me the link to your blog a year ago, I have to say, I’m in love with the Roasted Cauliflower and Leek soup that you shared and make it often. I was just researching the difference between the Vitamix and another blender, and came away thinking that I would wait to invest in the Vitamix. Thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us, which in return, makes us look good when we cook!

  65. Chris Wrenn

    I make preserved tomatoes in the summer (Ann Willan recipe) and use them for soup. Add some fresh basil, cream or milk and salt. Blend it all up and add a small scoop of fresh goat cheese in the bottom of the cup.

    Smoothies are a given but I really enjoy making soup – specifically butternut squash soup. And then I top each bowl with matchstick granny smith apples and candied ginger! Yum! I have not purchased your cookbook yet but I love your blog so it looks like my library is about to get a new friend!

  72. Marybelle

  73. Natalie
    04.25.2016

    I have recently become vegan, and having a Vitamix would be great for processing cashews for the creamy recipes. Right now I have a big bag of cashews, but I scratch my head when approaching how to best make them smooth with the limited tools I have!

  74. Clorinda
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is not from the cookbook and is not a standard blended recipe. I make a really good chocolate cheesecake with a raspberry puree marbleized top. To make the raspberry puree I blend the raspberries in a blender and add some sugar. This makes it nice and thick.

  75. Coree
    04.25.2016

    Love my green smoothies. Lots of kale and spinach with frozen cherries and coconut water.

  76. Marcia
    04.25.2016

    I haven’t jumped on the smoothie bandwagon, but my old Waring blender can still crank out pesto, gazpacho and my new favorite: roasted red pepper & smoked gouda soup. This copper Vitamix is beautiful!

  77. Cheryl
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is an asparagus soup. A little onion and garlic sautéed with olive oil, a bunch of asparagus and stock to cover. Simmer until the asparagus is bright green. Purée. Add a slash of lemon juice. Serve hot.

  78. Jennifer
    04.25.2016

    I recently made a “cheesecake” with bananas and cashews, sweetened with honey and dates. The blender made it possile, but I had to do it in batches because my blender isnt that powerful. It turned out yummy, on a pressed date and walnut crust. I set up in the freezer.

    04.25.2016

    I have wanted a vitamix for so many years, but I just simply cannot afford one! I would make brazil nut milk first, I think. I heard it tastes like liquid cashmere.
    I have a trust old blender at home now, but I wouldn’t dare fill her with nuts!

  97. Gretchen
    04.25.2016

    Summer is just around the corner, and I love making my mother’s Gazpacho recipe. She has sent me the recipe numerous times – but each summer I ask for it again because it’s kind of like tradition now.

    My favorite blended recipe is a chicory root latte with almond butter, chlorella and coconut milk. It is a killer replacement for people weaning themselves off caffeine!

  103. katie
    04.25.2016

    I would use the blender to make large batches of the dressings, specifically for the radicchio cups recipe! I jut made it and it was amazing! Feta + quinoa add a nice flavor.

  104. Caitlin Melvin
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is vegan nacho cheese with cashews, potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, and nutritional yeast ! I put it on top of everything — veggie burgers, nachos, baked potatoes, tacos, etc.

  105. Caroline

  109. Mari
    04.25.2016

    I love to make a faux Alfredo sauce for pasta dishes, and I make cashew sour cream all the time. It’s so easy, and it’s great if you can’t or don’t eat dairy. We go through a lot of cashews, and I just bought a case of tofu for puddings and salad dressings.

  110. Cherie

    My favorite is the Glowing Green Smoothie. Great recipe to amp up greens for glowing skin. I definitely see a difference after a week 🙂

  111. Mary from vindulge.com
    04.25.2016

    I do a lot of smoothies in my blender. But my favorite go-to recipe using my blender is a blender salsa. I just throw in a can of stewed tomatoes (such great flavor in a salsa), some cilantro, green onions, jalopeno, garlic, canned diced green chili, salt and pepper, and pulse a few times. Best salsa ever!

  112. Kristi
    04.25.2016

    I love to blend coconut milk, kale, protein powder, banana, mango, matcha green tea powder and an apple for my breakfast

    Cauliflower soup!

  115. Alyce
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blender recipe is any blended soup. I almost always start with a basic mirepoix in olive oil or butter. Then depending on the veg, may add some sliced or large chunked garlic (no chopping required since it’s all going in a blender). If I want to go Indian in flavor, I will add some combination of curry powder, cumin, coriander, garam masala, and or turmeric. I add a quart of water and then whatever veg I have on hand. Simmer for 10-15 minutes till veggies are soft and into the blender they go. If I want fresh herbs, I will ad them at the puree stage to keep the flavor bright and fresh. Quick and easy soup for any day of the week. For enhanced veggie flavor, I might a couple of veg bouillon cubes or use veg stock or broth.

  116. Amy from AmySargeant.com

    I love making hollandaise sauce in the blender!

  117. allie shields
    04.25.2016

    Favorite blended recipe is a smoothie! Especially now as the weather is getting warmer, we love to blend fruits and vegetables with rice milk (my husband is lactose intolerant and allergic to almonds) to make a sweet and satisfying dish. And it’s something our 11 month old can enjoy with us!

  118. Mary Beth Hunt
    04.25.2016

    Slushy Fruit Vodka somethings 🙂

  119. My favorite blended recipe sounds kind of funny, but it’s SO GOOD. Basically it’s a pesto made with strawberries and blended with fresh basil and oil. Then you add it to pasta with chopped cucumber and more fresh basil. I got the recipe from Daily Garnish … it’s so unique and refreshing!

  120. Melanie A.
    04.25.2016

    What a great giveaway! I love making a ‘whole juice’ with green apple, spinach, lemon, and ginger. So tasty!

  121. Diane Budy
    04.25.2016

    My favorite thing to whir up is a fresh, zingy pasta Sauce.
    A few fresh heirloom tomatoes, roughly chopped
    A handful of fresh basil
    A couple cloves of freshly peeled garlic
    A generous pinch of salt
    A bit of white pepper
    A bit of cayenne pepper

    Blend till smooth. Pour over hot pasta. Enjoy it right down to the slurpy goodness that pools at the bottom of your bowl.

  122. Jenn
    04.25.2016

  127. Sydna Marshall
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipes are typically soup. I’ve found an apple cheddar butternut squash bisque that’s to die for! The carrot soup in your cookbook looks amazing!

    Hi! One of my favorite blended recipes is a Carrot Ginger Tofu Soup. Very simple, quick recipe what includes things like carrots, onion, garlic, ginger and tofu. I swapped the chicken stock with veggie stock (Rapunzel Organic Powdered veggie broth which is great in a pinch if you don’t have homemade b/c you can measure out what you need so there’s no waste.) The soup is super creamy thanks to the tofu. My boyfriend said it was the best soup he’d ever had, better than any restaurant soup. He doesn’t typically like tofu so I “failed” to mention it was in there:) Now I can’t wait to try your roasted cauliflower and red pepper soup! Just received the cookbook as a gift and can’t wait to start cooking. Been making your recipes for years. They are my absolute faves and I’m not saying that to try and win a blender. Seriously, thank you for inspiring such delicious, healthy eating!

  138. CJ

  139. Mariana
    04.25.2016

    My favorites at the moment are the poblano cashew crema, which I’ve been using to top on tacos as well as various seafood tostadas! And my all time favorite breakfast, kale, chia, pineapple, Apple and lime smoothie

  140. Kristin

  142. Brigid
    04.25.2016

    Thai spiced coconut and almond butter sauce! 1/3 cup almond butter, 1/3 cup coconut milk, tablespoon curry paste and tablespoon soy sauce. Finish with cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime. So good on soba or rice noodles with any veggies tossed in! Tastes amazing warm or cold!

  143. Cindy
    04.25.2016

    I make my son smoothies. He’s 32 and disabled and lives with me. He’s very picky and doesn’t eat the most nourishing foods. So I make this with honey, oats, yogurt, banana, spinach, frozen mixed berries and coconut milk. It’s the one thing he loves and I feel better knowing he has some good stuff going in:)

  144. Gabrielle
    04.25.2016

    Favorite blend is pesto : basil, parm, walnuts, olive oil, and a tiny touch of truffle oil:)

  148. Lynn Ripley
    04.25.2016

    Love the vitamix for making the smoothest pureed roasted red pepper for my muhammara dip. Also for grinding soaked rice and dal for S. Indian dosas.

  149. Sarah
    04.25.2016

    Curry!! I’ve made homemade curry that requires cooking down tomatoes and spices and then blending the stew for a sauce with a smooth consistency.
    Although, I don’t own a food processor or immersion blender, so I use my blender for just about everything!

  150. Kimi
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blend is a sauce for veggies: lemon, tahini, olive oil, garlic, smoked paprika, salt, pepper, pepper flakes, warm water-Yum!

  151. Any salad dressing. Especially with silken tofu or cashews. Yum. Fooled even the most diehard fat-i-tarians!

  152. Mary
    04.25.2016

    Love making smoothies, grating cheese, making all kinds of soups.I think my all time favorite is hummus…any kind!!! My husbands favorite is making peanut butter. Vitamix will make it all so much easier!!!

  153. Amy
    04.25.2016

    Favorite blend is the simplest – banana ice cream! Frozen banana and coconut milk – with shredded coconut on top after blending. Quick and easy and healthy and delicious – just like all your recipes!

  154. Stephanie Darcy
    04.25.2016

    Sweet Potato & Pear Soup w/ Sage! This recipe is simple, yet delicious. It packs some serious flavor without being weighed down with heavy cream.

  155. Rebecca
    04.25.2016

    My everyday green smoothie – spinach, celery, cucumber, green apple, banana and/or yogurt, coconut almond milk, chia seeds, almond butter, cinnamon, and a splash of apple cider vinegar

    Delicious, refreshing smoothie to wake up with every morning!

  156. Lisa from thehouseofy.blogspot.com
    04.25.2016

    I haven’t had a blender in forever so I’ve been using the food processor which is both good and bad. I have a great roasted red pepper sauce for stuffed poblano chilis that I love. It would be nice to make it really smooth. The processor leaves it a little chunkier than I’d like.

  157. Kiralyn Davison
    04.25.2016

    I couldn’t decide between two: the Minty Green Shamrock Shake Smoothie (all of the joy of childhood and none of the guilt) and the “Creamy” Sundried Tomato Soup (a favorite lunch staple of mine). SO amazing!
    I have to say, it would be awesome to have a blender that didn’t explode every time I hit “blend”… 😉

  158. julia from bushkainthecity.com

    Carrot Gazpacho 🙂 It would be so nice.

  164. Autumn
    04.25.2016

    I love making different types of pestos!!! There are so many options of ingredients to mix it up! 🙂

  165. A Vitamix has been on my Wishlist forever, as I constantly use my mini food processor to make delicious avocado-Greek yogurt-cilantro dressing for tacos and salads. A blender just doesn’t do the trick for the smoothies I wish I could make for my breakfasts and continuing to eat clean. I’d absolutely love this Vitamix and would use it daily! 🌿🍌🍍🍓

  166. jessica

  262. Hannah
    04.25.2016

    I’m obsessed with the roasted cauliflower tacos with chipotle cream sauce from your new cookbook! so good! My favorite thing to make in a blender is a green smoothie for breakfast with whatever ingredients I have on hand. I always include spinach, banana, chia seeds and almond milk and then add in other fruit for a sweeter smoothie or vegetables if I overindulged the weekend before.

  274. nuria
    04.25.2016

    My fav blended recipe has to be a veggie burger made of chickpeas and sweet potatoes. What makes it super yummy is all the spices and textures: cumin, mint, paprika, onion, mustard seeds and some Tahini with parsley to top them up, alongside a side of roasted asparagus and broccoli.

    04.25.2016

    Oh my, I don’t usually do this, but that blender is a dream! One of my favorite blender recipes is a puréed carrot, parsnip, and coconut milk soup. It has just the right amount of sweet heat, thanks to the rich coconut flavor and just a touch of spicy red chili paste. <3 Thanks for sharing your beautiful recipes and photographs!

  278. Jason P.

    Currently my favorite blended recipe is a chia chocolate smoothie. I know it’s somewhat boring, but it’s because my cheap blender can’t handle anything more complicated than that. Hoping a Vitamix will open the doors to some amazing blender recipes!

    04.25.2016

    Definitely smoothies! (Although I had an amazing sundried tomato pesto the other day on a tempeh sandwich.) A go-to recipe for me is 1 c almond milk, 1 banana, 1 big handful of spinach, 1 T almond butter, 1 t chia seeds, 1/4 t cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. Today I left out the spinach and added vanilla protein powder and strawberries though.

    My favorite favorite FAVORITE blended recipe is a kalamata olive tapenade. Actually its more of an aioli, but it is delicious and I put it on everything, but this stuff on warm, fresh bread is heaven. You basically just throw all the ingredients in the blender (or in my case a hand me down nutribullet), refrigerate for 30 minutes and voila! 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives, 1 pinch black pepper, 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, 1⁄2 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 clove garlic, peeled, 3 or 4 leaves fresh basil, 1 cup light mayonnaise. Just thinking about it has made me decide that I need to whip some up tonight.

    Carrot ginger soup, kiwi strawberry spinach smoothies, and butternut squash rutabaga puree! getting hungry!!!

  411. Homemade pesto! One of my favorite pesto recipes substitutes pistachios for the traditional pine nuts- perfect for pizza!

  412. Ana S

    Gazpacho during the summer with tomatoes from the farmers markets is a must! Butternut squash soup during the winter months. And of course green smoothies for breakfast everyday.

  413. Jessie

    Fruit and yogurt smoothies every morning for my kids!

  414. Billie
    04.25.2016

    I love to make a coconut carrot ginger soup inspired by one I tried at a local vegan restaurant … would be so much easier if I had a Vitamix to heat it up in and didn’t have to transfer from the blender to a pot!

  415. Amanda Swanson
    04.25.2016

    Mango, strawberry, banana and spinach smoothies were a game changer for me. I tried and failed to get my toddler to eat spinach in a variety of ways and finally found that I could throw a ton of spinach in a fruit smoothie, and she’d happily drink it. The smoothies also make great popsicles in the summer!

  416. Jessica Shade
    04.25.2016

    My favorite thing to make in a blender right now is your cherry, blueberry and cacao smoothie recipe but the thing I make the most here lately is spinach, applesauce, and banana muffins. It is the only way I can get my two year old twins to eat any vegetables!

  417. Jess
    04.25.2016

    What don’t I like to blend?! Carrot soup, hummus, smoothies and if I have leftover roasted veggies, I pop them in my blender and heat it up and it’s a yummy veggie soup!

  418. alicia szemon
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is my everyday strawberry banana chia smoothie(:

  419. I make a kale smoothie every day, and I absolutely love them. I use Unsweetened Almond Milk, a large handful of Lactino Kale leaves, a few Medjool Dates, Maple Syrup, Frozen Blueberries, a handful of ice, and a tablespoon of the following: Hemp Seeds, Flax Seeds, Chia Seeds.
    It is refreshing and delicious.
    A change up would be to add Whey Protein Powder, and/or Matcha Green Tea.

    Yummy!

  426. Paula

    The beet hummus! It’s perfect! And with a Vitamix it would be perfectly smooth!! Congrats on your book, your recipes are great!

  427. Halle
    04.25.2016

    Any kind of blended veggie soup! Options are endless but some of my most favorites are roasted butternut squash w apples, spring peas & zucchini, roasted carrot, and broccoli! Smoothies are a given, too 😉

  428. Kristi L

  429. Kristina
    04.25.2016

    Anything with spinach!!

  430. I am an artist and take a simple but nourishing powerful breakfast smoothie to my studio, keeps me going for a long time, and the protein keeps my sugar cravings at bay. Califia almond milk, 1-2 scoops Sunwarrior natural vegan protein powder (just hemp, pea, and goji berry), organic blueberries or strawberries, organic hemp or chia seeds, and a dash of almond extract! Love your blog, sent itntonmy daughter and she immediately ordered your book. She has a food blog as well, Meta Street Cafe/ Plein Oranges. Thank you!

  431. Ana

  434. Alexis white
    04.25.2016

    I have always wanted a vitamix! It would be so helpful to make all my favorite soup, smoothie and sauce recipes. Smoothies espicially. Right now my boys love sunrise smoothies: strawberries, watermelon, orange juice. I also add liquid calcium, protein powder, flax oil, and mct oil.

  435. Sara
    04.25.2016

    Favorite blended recipe – right now, peanut butter banana post workout smoothie!

  436. Isabel
    04.25.2016

    Oh so excited! My favorite blended recipe would have to be a rice porridge made with pine nuts. The ingredients are all blended up and then cooked over the stove–blending is key here! The finer the texture the silkier it will be 🙂

  437. Jessica
    04.25.2016

    I love making avocado-date pudding!! I like using dates because it makes it such a guilt free treat!!

  440. Stacey
    04.25.2016

    My favorite is first blending 1 cup of kale and 1/2 cup of almond milk. Once that is blended add 1 cup of frozen banana and 1 cup of frozen pineapple and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. Yum!

  441. Sarah
    04.25.2016

    I make a pretty good smoothie to curb the sweet cravings with PB2 powder, Chocolate Vega powder, frozen banana, almond milk, a few pretzel sticks, and sugar free caramel syrup!

  442. Jeannette
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is a tropical mango smoothie:
    Almond milk, fresh mango and coconut yogurt with a dash of cardamom and lots of ice – so good and so refreshing!

  443. Elizabeth
    04.25.2016

    I love making the creamy cashew sauce for your butternut squash stuffed shells in my mother’s vitamix! The consistency is unlike anything else one could achieve in a normal blender!

  444. Jinan Munro
    04.25.2016

    I LOVE blending smoothies during the hot summer months. My favorite combo is two cups of ice water, a cup of frozen berries (blackberries, blueberries and raspberries), two handfuls of spinach, a tablespoon of chia seeds, a tablespoon of Agave and a scoop of raw protein powder. Super filling and satisfies my sweet tooth!

  445. I’m on a big smoothie bowl kick lately, so that’s currently my favorite thing to blend- but I love making sauces too!

  446. Rachel
    04.25.2016

    I love to blend up different variations on pesto – lately I’m loving spinach and basil with cotija – so salty and delicious.

  447. And the winner is…….from Denmark!!! MormorMedStiletter.dk!
    Thank you so much:-)

  457. katy from Diningwithdusty.blogspot.com
    04.25.2016

    One of my favorite recipes to blend is a soup made of romaine lettuce, onions frozen peas, lots of parsley and vegetable stock; it’s vibrantly green and delicious, especially with a generous dollop of creme fraiche or Greek yogurt on top.

    I also love using a high-powered blender for nuts milks–it leads to a remarkably creamy texture.

  458. Lori Minzenmayer
    04.25.2016

    Mango smoothie, arugula pesto and ginger pea purée.

  459. Tia DeShong
    04.25.2016

    I love my blender so much that it travels with me when I’m on the road! And I use it for so much — soups, dressings, my morning smoothies, etc . My recent egg allergy diagnosis and the discovery of tofu quiches and frittatas has made my blender work harder than ever. Whip some tofu with some hummus, nutritional yeast, and some spices in the blender, mix the batter with some veggies, and bake. Easy nutrition, sans allergic reaction. Score. So good!!

  460. Dorissa Gursahaney
    04.25.2016

    My absolute favorite blended recipe is the Tomato Bisque by Tal Ronen in his cookbook The Conscious Cook. So delicious!

  461. Rebekah from rebekahgough.com
    04.25.2016

    Cashew cream has been a game changer for me in transitioning to a plant based diet! I get terrible migraine headaches from dairy and eggs learning to blend things like cashews to add into sauces and soups for the creamy texture is my favorite thing to blend! And that copper vitamix is so gorgeous – thank you for the awesome opportunity!! XO

  462. Mason

  471. Krista Sanderson

  481. Clare

    04.25.2016

    Chile sauce! Whether it is destined for chili or for enchiladas, doing it in a high powered blendered makes the task super easy, quick and delicious…..so creamy and I don’t even have to strain it.

  490. Hannah S
    04.25.2016

    I love to make a healthy, super simple version of green goddess dressing! Avocado, honey, green onions, garlic, lemon juice, a little vinegar. Sometimes add basil or cilantro if I’m feeling spicy! Press blend!

  492. Tiffany
    04.25.2016

  493. Colleen
    04.25.2016

    Green “Gazpacho” made with green grapes, spicy watercress, english cucumbers, marcona almonds. Delicious, healthy, and unexpected!

  506. Cassy
    04.25.2016

    We blend all sorts of food in my kitchen, but my favorite would have to be the raw porridge nearly every morning. It’s a riff on GKS’s recipe: soaked buckwheat and walnuts blended with cardamom, vanilla, an apple and a couple of oranges, and topped with delicious things (mainly cocoa nibs, help, bee pollen, and berries or pomegranate arils).

    • Cassy
      04.25.2016

      Whoops! Had a typo. Should be hemp, not help. 🙂

  507. Pegg L
    04.25.2016

    What a beauty! Right now the only thing I am making is apple/kale/ginger smoothies in my very old blender. I don’t know if could take much else! But I love drinking smoothies after work as a snack before dinner.

  508. Mallory
    04.25.2016

    Lots of favorites, but I’d have to say a smoothie with spinach, banana, almond butter, and cinnamon would be at the top of my list.

  509. Gillian

  517. Sara
    04.25.2016

    I like making a simple 5 ingredient cauliflower soup, homemade chicken stock, onion, olive oil and seasoning to taste. After you brown the onions and cauliflower with the salt and pepper you add stock, bring to a boil, and simmer until cauliflower is cooked through and soup has reduced to desired consistency, then blend the whole thing up. It’s creamy, but dairy free, healthy and delicious!

  518. Bee
    04.25.2016

    Mmmm, my absolute favorite blended soup recipe is my mom’s old, traditional, tried and true potato cheese soup. Nothing compares.

  541. Emily
    04.25.2016

    I have a twist on pesto that I highly recommend. Put raw carrots. garlic, olive oil and pistachios in there and blend it up. Has consistency of pesto but a totally different and very refreshing taste. I’m not even a big carrot person but this is to die for. I put it with a grain like couscous or bulgur with chickpeas, fresh mint, green onions and dried fruit. I also put some chili flakes in there. It’s a really interesting taste. I adapted from a cookbook titled Meatless which is ALMOST as good as Love & Lemons. But of course, not the same. Enjoy!

  672. Patty S.
    04.25.2016

    My favorite blend is a coconut chocolate chia oat shake. Unsweetened shredded coconut, cocoa powder, chia seeds, and oatmeal are blended together into a fine powder. I use some sort of non dairy milk (coconut almond blend is my favorite) and add about 2 tbs of honey and 1/2 cup of ice to finish it. Sometimes I will add peanut or almond butters for an extra boost of protein.

    With the almond butter addition, it does taste very close to an almond joy!

    2 limes squeezed
    5 garlic cloves
    Raw ginger
    1/2c water
    1 bunch green onions

    I love your recipe for roasted carrot turmeric soup!
    Although… pretty much every soup with roasted veg is a win. 🙂

    My favorite “blended” dinner is to make Ina Garten’s pasta alla vecchia betolla. My fiancé loves it and the portion is large enough to have plenty left over for lunches! Although, we do start our mornings with a smoothie of blueberries or raspberries, blended with some coconut water, hemp seed, banana, flax, and cacao nips…and it’s delicious!

  703. Suzannah
    04.25.2016

    My favorite smoothies are what I grandkids smoothies. My grandsons stand in front of the refrigerator and pick out whatever types of grimy it they want, and then we add “leaves” and blend. It’s always something a little different and they think it’s great!

    spinach, mixed organic berries, cashew milk, chia seeds make for a good smoothie

  708. Omg. Favorite smoothie? Gosh. That’s hard. Frozen strawberries and rasberries with fresh mango, beet, ginger, and lemon. If it’s too thick add some maple water. Super yum. Add some mint if you’d like too

    I have oral allergy syndrome and am allergic to a lot of raw fruits and vegetables so I can’t really buy smoothies/juices in public!

  735. Helen Ivanov
    04.25.2016

  737. Adrienne
    04.25.2016

    I usually follow recipes or adapt them, but one day I started with some leftover watermelon languishing in the fridge and created a most delicious smoothie. I felt so clever! Blend together:
    1 cup chopped warermelon
    1 cup chopped strawberries
    1/2 cup yogurt
    1 tbsp lime juice
    1 tsp maple syrup or honey
    1 cup coconut water

    04.25.2016

    Ooh, Jeanine….SERIOUS blender lust!!! Sooo pretty!!

    OK…I’ll try to rein it in and answer your question 😀
    My favorite blender recipe is a really simple asparagus soup I make every spring, when the local asparagus comes in. It has only a few ingredients (asparagus, garlic, onion, russet potato, broth, tarragon, salt and white pepper), it’s silky smooth and the asparagus flavor really shines through. I often will also dilute it a bit and use is as a sauce over spring veggies and grains, or a pasta dish, as well.

    It’s my own, personal celebration of the return of warmth and green and flowers!

  739. Jeannine Mesina

  749. Monika
    04.25.2016

    I really love your recipe for Zucchini Noodles & Lemon “Ricotta.” Since my household transitioned to a whole-food based vegan diet this has become a staple. It’s so satisfying and delicious, with a gorgeous variety of textures and flavors. I like to top the “ricotta” on other things, like crostini with fresh tomatoes and basil or homemade spelt flour pizza with spinach and “ricotta.” Sometimes I make it with all cashews or sunflower seeds. Always delicious!

  750. Lou Macaluso
    04.25.2016

    My current favorite is combination – now don’t run away – of beets, carrots, sweet onion and once blended, stir in a small amount of horseradish for bit of zing.

    My favorite blended recipe? Lately, I have become obsessed with your Hemp Seed & Kale Pesto recipe. I made it with the Chickpea & Cauliflower Minestrone recipe and have since made it again to serve with a pasta dish. Though delicious on its own, the pesto transformed the minestrone into something sublime. Yum!!

  759. I love a green goddess smoothie!!! My absolute fave 🙂

    I’m so glad I found your blog! I love the minimalist design and it’s incorporated in your cookbook as well! I have yet to try a soup recipe because I don’t have a blender. I usually make smoothies with the typical ingredients: a green, fruit, and liquid (yogurt, type of milk, or water). I saw one of your muffin recipes and saw spinach. My jaw dropped. How is it that you could put spinach in there and still taste amazing?! I am in awe of your creativity and artistry! Do you have signed books by any chance?! Love love everything you’re about! Best of luck with everything!

  774. Reilly

  786. I love soups! I could eat them every day. Roasted butternut squash with red pepper puree has my heart. ♡
    I first tried it at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant and have been smitten ever since. I would love to recreate my own. A very smooth consistency is the key, Vitamix power would ensure that!

    And chimichurri. But the struggle is real sans Vitamix! Im buying several copies of your book for gifts right now.

  804. Jennifer Gentry
    04.25.2016

    Margaritas! My dad used to make the perfect pitcher…I’ve never been able to duplicate it, even with the same measurements. A vitamix would probably help though!

So many fun things to do with the vitamiz and the Love and Lemon cookbook is always giving me healthy alternatives that I can blend on my own. Love it!

  978. Kate
    04.25.2016

    Peaches and cream smoothie — pretty simple but the key is to peel and freeze the fruit beforehand for the perfect thick, cold texture.
    1 peach, peeled, pitted, and frozen
    1 banana, peeled, pitted, and frozen
    1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk if you want it extra creamy)
    1/2 cup greek yogurt or vanilla yogurt (or even vanilla almond milk yogurt for lactose intolerant people out there)
    A dash of nutmeg gives this guy a special kick, if you’re into that

    The best salad dressing is this creamy mango/mint blend.

  1093. Nicole

    Love making kale smoothies every morning (going strong for 5 years now)! Can’t go a day without it!

    • YES kale smoothies are the bomb!

  1105. It’s not original, but any and all smoothies! I use blenders for basically everything, but I’ve never had a Vitamix and would love to try one, as I am a beginning food blogger. I make a fruit and greens protein smoothie every morning for breakfast – no recipe, just whatever feels good at the moment. My second favorite thing to blend would probably have to be veggie soups – squash, asparagus, you name it. Dying to try the carrot gazpacho recipe!

  1106. Heidi
    04.26.2016

    04.26.2016

    My all-time favorite blended recipe is Pea and Pesto Soup. It’s dead simple and crazy fast. And it is surprisingly low in sodium without tasting in the least bland. Another plus is that excellent frozen peas are available year round, so even in the middle of a winter storm, I can have a bowl full of spring.

  1123. Lauren

    I love it the most when my son (13) is making his famous shakshoukha – first the Hommos and then the spicy pepper sauce….mmmmh!

    Vegan mac and shews, vegan queso dip, butternut squash soup, and avocado pasta sauce are all dishes I love and use a blender for.

  1148. Alice

    Vegan Ricotta! Because on trying it my husband (who is not vegan) exclaimed that it was so good you could put it on anything! Thanks much.

  1149. Grace Suzanne
    04.26.2016

    I’m super picky about textures, so I basically blend everything. My favorite would be a cream of spinach or chicken soup with lots of veggies packed in there. Or a strawberry lime smoothie. Yum!

  1150. Megan
    04.26.2016

    I always love a classic strawberry banana smoothie! But I would love to try making gazpacho!

    I love making cold soups and smoothies! My favorite one is banana-oatmeal-kale.

  1152. Rebecca
    04.26.2016

    I have a curried carrot and squash soup that I make all winter long! It’s just the best, can be combined with rice, over veggies, or warmed in a mug by itself…

  1153. Georgia Thompson

    My new favorite is soup: curry, turmeric, coconut cream, garbanzo, and carrot base – all vegan and so delicious! Fingers crossed I win this copper beauty Vitamix Pro750 Heritage Blender, would be a dream come true! Thank you love & lemons I heart you and all the goodness you post!

  1162. Sierra Turner
    04.26.2016

    Ginger-Apple Pumpkin Soup! I love making soup, but honestly not having a good blender makes it rather tedious, so I don’t make blending soups as much as I would like. As of now they stand to be for holidays with family and friends like thanksgiving 🙂 so everyone gets to enjoy!

  1163. Tracy
    04.26.2016

    My favorite for this year is a green smoothie for breakfast

  1164. Danny

    04.26.2016

    I recently discovered banana nice cream and it’s quickly become my favorite dessert! Unfortunately my current blender is on the fritz and can’t blend up frozen bananas 🙁 This beautiful Vitamix would be a DREAM and I would celebrate by whipping up some chocolate & PB nice cream!!! <3

  1167. Kelsey
    04.26.2016

    I love making up a big batch of smoothies in the beginning of the week, sticking them in the freezer and then I have instant breakfast. In the fall – I LOVE to make creamy soups, like asparagus with tofu (and I am not even a vegetarian!).

  1168. Katharine
    04.26.2016

    Smoothies any time of the year – I make one daily, chock full of greens. Recently I have been on a hummus kick as well. Having a good blender definitely makes a difference!

    My fave blended recipe is a passion fruit smoothie: passion fruit pulp, banana, orange, pea protein coconut water + coconut milk. YUM and great post workout fuel.

  1172. Katherine

    I love experimenting with different types of pesto: kale, arugula, spinach – whatever is leftover in the fridge ☺️

  1173. kate from tastyseasons.com
    04.26.2016

    breakfast these days is a green smoothie with some fresh grated ginger for a spicy kick! my current blender tends to jam on the spinach so a new vitamix would be awesome. 🙂

  1174. Maria
    04.26.2016

    I make a superfood smoothie every morning!! My chai one with maca powder is my favorite! It would be real nice to have a Vitamix! My blender takes a while and is very loud!!

  1175. Heather Taylor
    04.26.2016

    Milkshakes! Add-ins like cookies and brownies are a plus!

  1176. Madison Barlow
    04.26.2016

    Rise and Shine! My absolute favorite smoothie is actually one of the first ones I tried! Spinach, green apples, carrots, celery, lemons juice, and ginger. Better than coffee in the morning!

  1177. amanda
    04.26.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is the cashew miso sauce from your cookbook! (Not saying that to suck up and win a Vitamix.) It has become my favorite staple. I’m also a sucker for ANY kind of smoothie, which I use my blender to make every single morning.

  1178. Jenny
    04.26.2016

    Congratulations on your beautiful book! It’s such an accomplishment, and I can’t wait to try my hand at everything in it.

    My favorite blended recipe would have to be cashew cheese — on sweet potato and black bean tacos!

    Butternut squash soup!

  1181. Amy L
    04.26.2016

    I like to blend a smoothie with a banana, 1 cup of milk (dairy or non-dairy – I like almond milk), a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, and a tablespoon of either peanut butter or almond butter. Sometimes I add a couple of ice cubes if I want it to be “frosty”. This is my “comfort food” smoothie.

  1182. Barbara
    04.26.2016

    My favorite blended recipe is my regular morning smoothie made from homemade almond milk (soak 1 cup almonds overnight, discard water, add almonds and 4 cups of fresh water to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour all through a sieve and either discard almond meal or put in tupperware and use over your favorite Muesli), kale, green apple, kiwi and maple syrup. A fast and easy blend when you’re in the rush, yet with lots of vitamins.

  1183. Jean
    04.26.2016

    My favorite and only thing I blend at the moment is a smoothie in morning for me and my kids. It usually consists of yogurt, frozen fruits, and milk or keifer water. I have tried adding spinach but my current blender won’t handle veggies. I am hoping to buy a vitamix before the current sale go off. I love the looks of your cookbook(going to check it out!).

  1184. Alana Berry
    04.26.2016

    Pretty soon I will be making my favorite blended soup. Cucumber, mint, greek yogurt, lemon juice, all that good stuff mixed together!

  1185. Grace

  1188. Jannell from jlocooks.tumblr.com
    04.26.2016

    Vitamix blenders are the best for making acai bowls! Acai powder in a thick smoothie served in a bowl with toasted coconut, fruit, flax/chia seeds, and drizzled with honey or maple syrup. My fav.

  1189. Chloe
    04.26.2016

    Its so hard to choose just one!! I think I am going to have to go with a good old breakfast smoothie. I love your rainbow breakfast smoothies 🙂

    My family’s favorite blended recipe is passed down but never been written down- Nonno’s pesto. Every fall, my husband and I ceremoniously pull up our herb garden and raid the pantry to fulfill this sacred family tradition.

  1194. Chris Russell
    04.26.2016

    Well I don’t have a blender currently so haven’t been able to enjoy any of your recipes yet, but I am dying to try the Peach-Ginger green smoothie. Looks like the perfect way to start off a beautiful summer morning!

  1195. Lynne Z.
    04.26.2016

    My favourite blended recipe is my morning green smoothie – it’s the easiest way for me to get my greens in. I follow Dr. Rhonda Patrick’s micronutrient smoothie recipe: 8 large kale leaves, 4-6 rainbow chard leaves with stems, 3 cups (~710 ml) of baby spinach, 2 medium to large carrots, 1 tomato, 1 large avocado, 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 cup (~710ml) of blueberries (fresh or frozen), 1 tall shot glass of flaxseed (optional), and 3 cups (~710 ml) of unsweetened flax milk.

  1196. andrea

    I’ve been making this blended strawberry margarita with cumin from the tippling bros book recently. It’s savory and wonderful — a new favorite! The beautiful red color would look lovely in a Vitamix…but what wouldn’t?!

  1212. Erin
    04.26.2016

    I love throwing my vegan garlic cheese sauce into the blender to make it oh so smooth!

    04.26.2016

    What a beauty. I’d love to have one in my kitchen! My go-to favorite blended recipe is probably a smoothie made with bananas, dates, and almond butter. I can never get the dates quite creamy with my current blender…this one is my dream. xo

  1219. Courtney Trask

  1230. Morgan A
    04.27.2016

    Just when I thought VitaMix couldn’t get better…copper! I love soups in the winter and cashew cream is always a go to!

  1231. Stephanie

    Cashew/cilantro/lime Crema. I love Smoothies, but it’s the stuff that requires a high-powered blender that I love most!!!

  1232. Holly

    Butternut squash soup with ginger! So good, and I love being able to leave the food processor in the cabinet.

  1233. Erin
    04.27.2016

    Current obsession: chocolate peanut butter cheesecake…smoothie? Shake? Whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious. Cottage cheese always belongs in shakes. Always. I’d really like to try to make nut butters but I fear my blender isn’t powerful enough.

  1234. Edie
    04.27.2016

    Strawberry and banana smoothies. Thanks for the chance.

  1235. Sienna
    04.27.2016

    Wow, now it takes a bit of dedication to scroll down and comment.

    Frozen berry medley + plain yogurt + cocoa powder or handfull of chocolate chips

    Although this recipe is not vegan, it never fails to please (and I’m so bummed I can’t eat it any longer!). It’s not super sweet, and the sourness of the yogurt actually really enhances the flavors of the berries. And chocolate is always a bonus!

  1236. Lisa
    04.27.2016

    I love to blend green smoothies and to blend soups to make them silky smooth

  1237. Heather
    04.27.2016

    Just about every meal I make has a blended sauce! Cashew crema in all of the flavors, including with smoky spices like cumin, turmeric, chili powder and smoked paprika.

  1238. Victoria
    04.27.2016

    I love making any and all kinds of soups, specifically a curry cauliflower and squash soup in the winter! But I could never resist some banana nice cream, any time of the year! 🙂

  1239. Kate Kloss
    04.27.2016

    Green smoothies- almost every single day. I could use a workhorse like a Viramix!

  1240. Susan
    04.27.2016

    Love smoothies and my fav tip is to use frozen organic spinach. Spinach goes weird so fast in the fridge and the frozen is so much more convenient and already cold!

  1241. Kristin
    04.27.2016

    we love smoothies and soups in our blender – super easy and super healthy

  1242. Sarah
    04.27.2016

    For me it’s all about the smoothies in a Vitamix. My favorite is with 1 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tsp cocoa powder, 1 sliced frozen banana, a dash of cinnamon, and 3/4 cup iced coffee concentrate. It’s my breakfast and coffee all in one!

  1243. Kristen D

    Obviously love the soups and smoothies, but my absolute favorite blended item is the poblano crema used in the vegan enchilada recipe! TO. DIE. FOR. I have started making extra to add to quinoa bowl dishes and other warm entrees. 🙂 yum!

  1246. Meagan
    04.27.2016

    Obviously love all of the soups and smoothie combination(especially the ginger, pumpkin soup!), but my absolute favorite blended item is the poblano crema used in the vegan enchilada recipe!! TO.

    I love using my blender for smoothies, sauces and dressings, but it’s getting old and tired… Time for a new one! I just got The Love & Lemons Cookbook this past weekend (looooooove it!) and have been flipping through and flagging recipes to make soon! Would love a new blender to make some of your fabulous recipes!

  1249. Jennifer Seamans
    04.27.2016

    Hummus, which I currently make in my food processor, but if I had a high speed blender, I’d love that creaminess!

  1250. Arlene

  1251. Kim Taylor
    04.27.2016

    I make a juice every morning – banana, 1/2 each of apple, lemon, orange, cucumber
    piece of ginger, water & ice cubes.

    I love your coconut rice with brussel sprout bowl – I top it with fish!

  1252. I make a smoothie each morning with elements of fruit, leafy greens, nut butter and seeds!

    Apart from that, I tried this avocado pesto sauce once with pomegranate molasses, a bunch of basil, garlic and olive oil – so good on zoodles or any cold salad!

  1253. Clara
    04.27.2016

    Chocolate milkshakes, hands down!

  1263. Erin M.
    04.27.2016

    Green smoothies are great, but when I’m in the mood for savory, I’m a sucker for a nice creamy cauliflower soup!

  1264. Jenne Lahov
    04.27.2016

    For me it’s a tie between three recipes:

    First, Mango Avocado Smoothies! It’s super easy – just blended almond milk, mango, peaches, avocado, kale, and honey. I don’t use any ice or yogurt, because I love the creamy, velvety texture you get from the avocado!

    Second, chilled cucumber soup. I love cold soups – to me, they’re the epitome of refreshing, especially on a hot summer day! This soup is nice and easy: just blend together cucumber, mint, basil, lemon juice, sour cream, and scallions. Sometimes I like to add a little chopped jalapeno for heat, and serve it with a little diced avocado to add a little richness. You can season it to taste with salt, pepper, lemon juice, or extra hot sauce!

    Third is a chilled apricot curry soup. I LOVE this soup more than anything, because it’s that mix of sweet and spicy that I love. It’s a simple purreed curried chicken broth that is thickened with cubes of cream cheese, and served chilled with a dollop of apricot preserves. It’s absolutely heavenly!

  1266. Lacy
    04.27.2016

    I love making tropical fruit smoothies with mango, pineapple, and yogurt! And throwing in some ground flax seed is always a good idea.

  1267. Rachel Joy
    04.27.2016

    My favorite thing to make n the blender these days are smoothies for my toddler! We throw in kale, berries, apples, bananas, kefir, whatever we have on hand and it’s such a great way to get him lots of veggie and fruit nutrients! I’m pretty sure a Vitamix would take take my smoothie making game up to the next level!!! My favorite L&L recipe to blend is the sweet potato Cashew Alfredo! That one is so super good!

  1268. Michelle Flook
    04.27.2016

    I love to make salad dressings, usually with a hand mixer. My fave is a yogurt+lemon+garlic concoction that goes great with plain salads, chicken, shrimp, anything!!

  1269. Merilyn
    04.27.2016

    Basil pesto and garlic hummus! Yum! Couldn’t choose only one. 🙂

  1270. Kari
    04.27.2016

    I love using Iced Tea as my liquid in smoothies. Anything from black iced tea to herbal infusions. Frozen berries, a bit of herbs. So refreshing!

  1271. Jessica
    04.27.2016

    I live off blueberry, banana, and protein powder smoothie. It’s my morning go to!

  1272. coral sayer
    04.27.2016

    I love making blended soups like potato fennel or tomato basil – and I always reserve some of the ingredients so that my creamy soups still have some chunks. If I owned a proper blender (I don’t!) I would love to make smoothies for my preschooler and myself to start our mornings a little better!

  1273. Kari Marie
    04.27.2016

    Quick chimichurri for summer veggies.

  1274. Leslie
    04.27.2016

    My favorite blended product is a salad dressing – composed of carrots, white miso, and ginger. Its so good that I put it on sandwiches, burritos, salads, and even on my yogurt.

  1275. I am a huge smoothie gal. I like making a “carrot cake” smoothie bowl with bananas, a bit of pineapple, carrots, almond butter and milk, and cinnamon. Topped with raisins and granola = perfection.

  1276. Erin G
    04.27.2016

    Spinach & fruit smoothie or a roasted tomato soup.

  1277. Kim from hotmail.com

    04.27.2016

    My recipe fave for the blender is a spinach and almond smoothie. I ballpark measurements so the taste is little different every time which is a nice surprise. Ingredients: yogurt around a cup, 2 bananas, lots of spinach, almond milk however much it takes to blend, honey, and ice cubes. I sometimes add in strawberries for tanginess or almonds for texture.
    Another cool trick is to blend split peas for a smooth creamy soup. Yum!

  1283. Mayra Sanchez
    04.27.2016

    I can’t get enough of green smoothies made with coconut water, spinach, gogi berries, frozen mixed berries and chia seeds!

    Hummus. Particularly pumpkin hummus to pair with quesadillas! I used to peel (yes, I’m crazy) my garbanzo beans after cooking them because, well, it made my hummus so buttery smooth I felt it was worth the effort. Enter: my mother’s Vitamix, which I became accustomed to using while I lived at home for a stint during law school. The Vitamix makes hummus so ethereally creamy, I no longer peel garbanzo beans when making hummus, at least, whenever I can borrow my moms. I’m newly married and somehow our wedding guests just completely ignored the Vitamix on our Williams Sonoma registry. Someday 🙂

    We have Thanksgiving at my mother’s house, but every year for the past few years I’ve been making a delicious butternut squash soup with nutmeg, sweet paprika, and just a touch of honey and cream. It has become a new family tradition.

  1331. Ooh that question is a toughy, but I think I’d have to say banana ice-cream… or creamy guacamole (I knew I wouldn’t be able to pick just one) I think I’m going to dream about that beautiful blender tonight! Congratulations on the book launch, I can’t wait to pick up my own copy. xx

  1332. I really enjoy making different smoothies for my family. My husband really loves when I make him all kind of smoothies and being he has been gone for quit a few years over seas for work, I am now going to be making them more than ever!!! Our daughters love them too, and I feel pretty happy about all the healthy ways I can add in so many healthy veggies they would not normally eat… Thanks for a chance to win that Beautiful Vitamix, it would look so Amazing in my kitchen ha ha…

  1333. Emily
    04.29.2016

    Green smoothie variations every morning! All depends on what’s in my fridge, what’s in season. Generally has spinach, kale, romaine, cucumber, celery, an apple, a banana, an entire lemon and various spices (cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, etc). Sometimes avocado for some extra creamy goodness….. I’m drinking one now 🙂

    Caulifower Alfredo sauce is so good, but honestly any mylk. Oat and almond have been ones I make the most, but I have so much fun making any kind. Plus there’s so much you can do with the plup, it’s like a two for one recipe!

  1345. Thiersten from koinonianarrative.com
    04.29.2016

    I really enjoy my husband’s hummus-yum!

  1346. One of my favorite things to do is to blend roasted and/or raw vegetables to make delicious sauces – these add so much to main dishes and are also a great way to camouflage veggies if you have kids who will only eat pasta.

    I love a blend of tomatoes, red peppers, zucchini and a little bit of well-caramelized onion. There’s just enough sweetness and the fresh flavors really come through! If you have egg, chicken or fish eaters in your family they’ll really enjoy this sauce with their meal too.

    I have lots of personal favorites, but I feel most success when I can blend in colorful veggies into smoothies, soups and pasta sauces that my unknowing kids actually enjoy devouring.

    Creamy Cashew and Miso Pasta! I have a nut allergy and was able to substitute soaked pumpkin seeds for the cashews, it was great! Potatoes, as well as roasted cauliflower work well too.

    Black bean fudge- on my first try I thought they were okay, but now I am a tad obsessed with them!

    I would take all my hopes and dreams, some strong coffee, banana, almond butter, almond milk, ice and honey and blend them until they have the delicious consistency of success.

    I received the LOVE AND LEMONS COOKEBOOK from a friend for my 50th birthday…..it is such a cheery and amazing source of cooking inspiration.
    The Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot soup was great…..and the Ginger Carrot sauce for the Millet Grain bowl….another goodie! Both were easier with a blender. And wouldn’t a copper Vitamix look good when blending all the delicious recipes?!?!? Thanks for a great cookbook!

    It’s hard to choose one but my most recent favorite is a new smoothie recipe I got from the #PurpleCarrot…a creamy, slushy grapefruit one: Frozen cut up grapefruit, frozen bananas, half a squeezed lime, spinach (or any mild greens you prefer), and almond milk. So simple but so yummy. I’ve been having in for days!

    One that I still have to invent… BUT without further ado, it will contain love & lemon. Ha! Our last blender got up in smoke (forshizzle). I made a video & sent it to the manufacturers, no biggie to get a refund after that.
    SO now we have safely avoided a meltdown, the time is right to get back to the nitty gritty & blend blend blend. As I live in Europe, I am HAPPY to take the shipping on as I don’t think you ship international? Lots of xoxo. A fan of you since forever ago with a favorite recipe in mind (think pomegranate & sweet potato).

    As of late, I’ve really been digging simple stuff. On Sundays I make broth, some sort of grain and then roast some vegetables (butternut squash had been my favorite) for the week. Then every afternoon, I just chuck the broth and vegetables and a few herbs in the blender for a quick soup. Top with quinoa, or brown rice, or whatever I’ve got going on that week, and a drizzle of oil, and chili flake, and I’m a happy person.

  1484. Megan Bradley
