Still saving up for that Vitamix. It's at the top of my wish list, kitchen or otherwise. I also love that the company is based in our hometown...Cleveland!

Juliane

You can make the shake using a blender for now (using ground flax-seed will help- the reason I recommend whole is flax loses a ton of its nutrients once it's been ground). You'll love the Vitamix. I'll be posting some great soups that you'll love making in the Vitamix. It's great because you can put hot liquid in it and gradually turn up the motor without blasting hot soup all over the place.

I will have to try this :)

Juliane

Thanks for visiting Penelope (aka Andrea)! Let me know what you think!

Pamk

Do you think I could use frozen spinach?

Juliane


You've got to use fresh. The frozen spinach just doesn't have the same fresh flavor. It's highly concentrated so you'd get a chlorophyl taste instead of a fresh lite milkshake.

Pamk

Made one today - delicious! (Although we have no flaxseed, whole, ground, or otherwise up here). I think I'll try adding spinach to other smoothies too, it has an surprisingly mild flavor.

Nancy

Delicious!! I will be making a lot of these. Jim really like it.

Nancy

but the chocolate croissants are still to die for.....and after I feel guilty about eating them I will be good and have a smoothie every day for a week.

Juliane

exactly! thats what Im doing. so really in the end, no guilt necessary!

Pamk

I've been having a daily green smoothie too. I finally lucked into ground flaxseed (at the chiropractor, no less). I've been adding that and a bit of thawed frozen mango to mine too. I swear it's been doing wonders for my skin and my energy levels.

Juliane

I totally agree! And I too love it w/ mango- I sub it in for the banana.

Nancy

Wanted to let you know that I now have my mom and Aunt hooked on them too :)

Juliane

Awesome! Im so happy to hear that. Let them know I'll be posting another smoothie soon that I'm sure you'll all enjoy just as much!

Kathryn Marion

These smoothies are fantastic, but one thing to consider is to rotate your greens. Spinach one day, kale the next, collards, the next, chard, and back around you go. That way you'll get all the essential enzymes and not overload or overwork your system with the same thing all the time.

My vote is for the Blendtec, personally. Love the preprogrammed buttons on front--the kids can make their own goodies.

Bon apetit!

Juliane

Kathryn, I totally agree! Rotating greens in this one is a great idea- and I've found it still tastes awesome. However, I admit, I'd been using spinach primarily- you've motivated me to start mixing in the Collards, Kale and Chard. Pretty soon I'll be harvesting them from my garden so that should make it easy:-) Thanks for stopping by! Visit often:-)
