you can make nut and seed milks, and nut milk shakes and frostings and soups and salad dressings and anything you like.
nut and seed milks,
soak nuts or seeds,
rinse several times,
place into blender with double the water and blend, then strain through a fine mesh, or nut milk bag, or jelly bag or paint strainer, I like to add a dash of salt and a date or two for flavor, you can tweek this any way you wish.
1 cup nut milk
1 cup ice
3 medjool dates (pitted, not soaked)
1 " scraped vanilla bean, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
you can add some seasonings if you like
2 T cacao powder (add one extra date if you do this)
dash of salt
or 2 dashes cinnamon
1 dash nutmeg
2 dashes cardemon
or just some cinnamon
you can make frostings,
1 cup cashews (soaked)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1" vanilla bean scraped or 1 tsp vanilla extract
3 medjool dates (pitted not soaked)
1 T orange juice
blend until smooth makes a great frosting.
there are tons of things to make in your Vita Mix, I love the way it is so fast, also minces hard veggies in a breeze,
say you want coleslaw
1/4 head of cabbage, toss into vita mix
then cover with cold water,
turn on then off, in 1 second,
pour off water, you have chopped cabbage for cole slaw.
instant food. LOL
