    I use mine to make smoothies & nut milks & ice "cream"

For smoothies, I usually add in 1/2c of oatmeal, a banana, scoop of protein powder, handful of greens (usually spinach) and almond milk. yum.

You can make your own almond milk by soaking some almonds overnight and then blending them in the vitamix with some water. then strain the "milk" out by usig cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.

You can also juice vegetables with it by doing the same thing. I throw in carrots & an apple, blend it up, and then strain the juice out through the nut milk bag. No need for a separate juicer.

And I make raw chocolate icecream by using frozen bananas & cacao powder.

The vitamix is probably my most-used appliance. It should come with a recipe book with lots of really good recipes in it.

Have fun!
