I have had a Vitamix 5000 for many years. I decided it was time to give that motor a workout. I went to www.vitamix.com and found a ton of recipes. The one below was made today. Simple easy and taste wonderfully. If any of you have ever thought about buying a Vitamix machine but was unsure do to the price, well let’s just say you can do a ton of things with it so you basically only need one appliance besides the crockpot. You can even make soup in the Vitamix and turn around and make ice cream in just a few seconds. I truly recommend one. I give this Key Lime Kiwi Smoothie 5 stars! The recipe came off the Vitamix site.
|1/4 cup (60 ml) water|
|1 tablespoon key lime juice|
|2 medium kiwi, peeled, halved|
|1 large ripe pear, halved, seeded|
|2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey (optional)|
|1 cup (240 ml) ice cubes|
|1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Select Variable 1.
3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. 4. Blend for 30 seconds or until desired consistency is reached.
