Vitamix Bliss

I recently became a proud owner of the bourgeoi-est blender out there, the Vitamix! I bought it off so I didn't pay $499.99 for it. Since then I have been searching online for good recipes from smoothies to soups to salsas to desserts. Here is my curated list of favorites:

Coconut Carrot Curry soup from:

Nut free 3 ingredient macaroons:

Fully raw pi~na kale-ada:

Blended salsa guacamole (I used to make this in my blender before I had a vitamix)

Mango lassi: I use almond milk and honey instead of milk and sugar, no ice since my mango is frozen from Costco:

Tomato basil soup: I don't use cheese, cream or butter and it still comes out bomb.

Vegan alfredo sauce with brown rice pasta: I didn't put the avocado

Vegan mac n cheese: I made this with sweet potato noodles but next time I will use brown rice pasta for full pleasure

Carrot-Miso-Ginger Salad Dressing: From Gwyneth Platrow (blegh) but its good (yum)

Pesto Hummus
Can't find the recipe I used but it's basically: 1 can of chickpeas, 1/4 cup of pine nuts, lemon, fresh basil, garlic, avocado or olive oil

I love my Vitamix!! It changed my world #paradigmshift
