I stinkin' love my Vitamix. It was a wonderful addition to our cookware family. It fits right in :). I love being creative with new smoothies. I've used it for soups before which are delicious, but now that summer is here, sorbets, smoothies, and frosty drinks are a must.
I recently indulged in a creamy non alcoholic pina colada:
1/4 cup milk
2 large squirts of Cream of Coconut
1 frozen banana
2 circles of pineapple (that how I cut them)
Combine all ingredients, milk on the bottom.
Turn on, go from 1 to 10 on Various then to High.
