My Vitamix Has Arrived!
I recently purchased a Vitamix! I am in love ❤! It is like I am experiencing my first love all over again.
Don’t you remember…the butterflies in your stomach, the mad passion, the excitement…oh yeah wait, I am talking about my Vitamix, strangely it parallels my first love. 🙂
First let me start by saying, “This machine is a beast!” I mean that in a good way. Oh my gosh is there anything that this Vitamix can’t do? (I am sure there is, but I’m just saying, it is a pretty amazing piece of machinery)!
New Vitamix Recipe Section
Well for all the Vitamix junkies out there (you know who you are) 😉 I am starting a new segment on my website exclusively for Vitamix recipes!
I know, exciting right? You can find these recipes at the top of this site: Hover over “Recipes” and then you will see “Vitamix Recipes”.
From time to time, I will add Vitamix recipes. I will be sure to add in the title that it is a Vitamix Recipe, Look at the title of this post.
So lets move forward to the first recipe shall we?

I’d love to hear from you! Tell me, do you have a Vitamix? If so, what kind of recipes would you like to see?
Thanks for this! I bought a refurbished Vitamix last year and absolutely love it.
My husband just ordered me a Vitamix for my birthday. It should be here in the next week or two. I’m so excited about your Vitamix recipe series!
athena_013 You are going to love it! Thoughtful gift from your husband 🙂

How do you brew your Kombucha?
I just came across this on Pinterest and thinking about drinking a kombucha smoothie makes it sound a whole lot better to me. I just got my vitamix last week and am very happy to have it finally. I’ve been waiting almost two years. I don’t have a favorite yet, but made this avocado chocolate ice cream today that wasn’t too bad http://restoreinteriors.com/food/just-call-me-sneaky-chocolate-avocado-ice-cream/. I also make my own oatmeal for my daughter baths when she needs an oatmeal bath and this blended it down to dust so fast I couldn’t believe it.
Where. Do you get the kombucha? Hope not a dump guestion. Thanks
i LOVE my vitamix too and kombucha and strawberries, which i usually pop into the second ferment but am totally psyched to try strawberries and kombucha in the vitamix as a smoothie 🙂 great idea!
I was told that metal can kill the kombucha. Wouldn’t the blade in the mixer so this to the kombucha?
Awesome! I’m going to try this today for dinner. I had an enormous lunch and this will hit the spot… better eat early though, kombucha can really energize me!
Awesome recipe! I have tried this at my home last night & my kids also loved it! I’m excited to try your other recipe! Thank you Deryn for this awesome smoothie!
