I am sad to say that I have not made anything in my Vitamix for over a week now. You see, last week, while my husband was making a smoothie a piece broke. Do not worry it was not his fault and the new piece is on its way.
Thank you Vitamix warranty!
I want to take a second and tell you another reason why I love Vitamix so much. I know, I am obsessed!!!! but really this is so neat. Vitamix has this technology that if a spoon, a piece of the blender, a peach pit, ect hits the blade, another piece breaks. It is meant to break so that the motor is protected. Vitamix now is mailing me my new piece! :)
I made this delicious Almond Milk with Banana.
1/2 cup Almonds
1 cup water
1/2 banana, frozen
Soak Almonds in water for 4 - 6 hours. Drain water and add Almonds and water to blender or Vitamix. Blend on High until the Almonds go smooth. Add banana pieces and blend for another couple of minutes.
Next time I will pour the Milk through cheese cloth.
