I have it. I suggest you all save up and get one. You will not be disappointed. It's ridiculously good.

I use it for my protein shake everyday, my fruit + spinach shake, and to make energy bars, and that's just the beginning of what it can do.

My goal over the weekend is to make my own almond milk and coconut butter using my vitamix. I just have to cop some mason jars. I got inspired using these youtube vids

Ohh and I'm also going to try to make my own nut flour...eventually. I may leave that for next weekend. I'll most likely start with almond flour just because I plan on buying an idiotic sized bag of almonds from BJ's. I'm kind of excited.

Nope. The most I've done with my blender is smoothies and hummus but I'll add almond butter to my test case since I don't have the dry container for my vitamix (yet) to make flours anyway.

I like mine to come out that consistency, that's why I use more water with mine than most people do. I just started adding mint leaves to my joints. For some reason it leaves me feeling :blessed:

Ya'll need to try this recipe:

Half of avodcado, 1 banana, some pineapple, almond milk, 2 table spoons of honey, and some mint leaves. A little ice to keep it chilled.

Thank me later.

Freeze the banana and pineapple and omit the ice. I don't like using ice in smoothies because it waters it down, imo.
