5 out of 5 stars *****
The Vita-Mix is my new favorite kitchen appliance. This spectacular blender comes with an assortment of goodies, which include the following:
1. Whole Food Recipes For Better Living Cookbook (full of recipes from appetizers and soups to dips and desserts).
2. A DVD on how to get started with the Vita-Mix
3. Getting Started Guide Step-by-Step
I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but I'd like to soon. The only recipes I've tried are ones that I make up depending on what kind of fresh and frozen fruit I have on hand. The latest concoction can be found below.
Banana, blueberries, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, and ricemilk (not pictured)
Ahhh...how refreshing. Ok...Ok enough about the Vita-Mix. On to more interesting news.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I entered a vegan cooking contest called the Veggie Conquest Challenge here in NY to take place in a week. One week before the event, the secret ingredient is revealed along with which course you have to prepare. Yesterday, I received an email revealing the ingredient and course. All chefs will be making an entree dish featuring apples. Hmmm...apples?...entree? This is definitely a challenge!
