    That sounds pretty cool. I think I might try it.

    I'm really enjoying it so far.

    I also just got a Vitamix yesterday, so the plan is to liquify anything that I don't need for "regular" meals and snacks. That way, nothing should go to waste. :)

    Great idea. I'll do the same with my Blentec.

    All signed up and ready to pickup my first delivery next Tuesday!

    Sweet!

    I get mine on Tuesdays, too. I go to Duck & Decanter downtown.

    I liquefied my leftovers before the new delivery and it turned out pretty well. I'm still learning how to mix fruit with vegetables to get the taste right, but it's great knowing that nothing goes to waste and you can get a healthy drink out of it.

    :)

    We just recently started adding kale to our fruit smoothies in the morning and I really don't notice it at all.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention, gang. :raccoon:

    It's pretty wild, huh? The first smoothie I made had some fruit and two cups of spinach. There was no hint of spinach in the taste.

    I imagine this is great news for parents of young kids who hate veggies.

    Yes! I started with just a little kale in the smoothie for two and now I'm cramming the stuff in. Really affordable too.

    That sounds delicious!

    Blueberries and avocados are nature's best work, imo. :)

    Totally agree... I absoulely LOVE blueberries and can eat them like candy! I love avocados as well!! Not as easy to deal with as are blueberries, but well worth the effort in the end!!

    Ha! I do that, too. I grab a big handful, but save the biggest, fattest ones for last, so I know I will get the best taste last. LOL.

    When I was a young kid, my grandfather would put a bunch in a small bowl, sprinkle some sugar over them and then drizzle a little bit of heavy/whipping cream on top! Good Lord that was ridiculous!! I still do it for my kids every once in a while... and, yea... I'll make a bowl for myself at the same time!!! :D

    That sounds great. The Mrs can't do nuts so for us:

    Peaches, mango, blueberries, banana, flax seed, Pom juice, Yakult, ice, splash of 2% and KALE!

    Looks kinda gross but tastes fantastic.
