My goal in life is to have a "Vita-Mix" blender. They are pretty expensive, in fact, the price of a new one (around $700) is half the price of my used 1966 Mustang, which I bought in 1968 from Mr. Farino, my neighbor, for $1500.
But, because I am a fan of the infomercial, I can tell you the difference between the Wizard, the Bullet, and the Montel, which is a faux "Vita-Mix." I do have the Wizard, and it is my new best friend in the kitchen. I show it off as though it was a diamond ring or a fancy car, just like I did that Mustang, back in the day.
Here's a fun recipe that you might like to try. Yummy and very filling, and easy to make.
"Green with Envy" Smoothie
One cup of FROZEN spinach
One cup o FROZEN peach slices
One cup of Almond Milk (I use the unsweetened variety)
Milk first, add spinach. Blend until it looks yummy. Add fruit. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Enjoy. Good source of iron. Chock full of vitamin "E" (for envy).
You'd make Popeye proud.
Tip of the Day: If you think you LOVE dairy and could NEVER get into non-dairy milk (soy, oatmeal, almond, etc.), start out by mixing equal amounts of dairy and non-dairy, and eventually, you can make the total switch to non-dairy milk. Really.
