As our bodies begin to thaw from Winter and prepare for the longer days ahead, this mix of strawberries, blueberries and almonds is a yummy way to replace a meal, have before or after a good workout or anytime you crave something sweet.
Everyone always asks me, “Hey Jackie, what type of blender do you use to make your smoothies?” Before they finish the question, I am yelling, “A Vitamix.” This machine and I have had a love affair for almost 10 years. It blends up the silkiest smoothies breaking down even the toughest of food such as raw beets, celery and nuts. I also use the Vitamix for pureeing vegetable soups , making large quanties of salad dressing or even creating chunky sauces like homemade tomato sauce. Buying a vitamix is one of the best kitchen investments I have ever made. I have talked every one of my friends into purchasing one. Each one falls in love the same. After a few days, you wonder how you ever lived without this magic machine. Check it out!
