Do you make your own smoothies?

Do you guys like making smoothies at home? I got my Vitamix back today from warranty repair and I was seriously SO excited! I make a fruit-veggie smoothie basically every single day as part of my diet, and tonight I was reminded about how much I love them. I'm clearly not a master photograper (tried to angle this drink a million different ways to show the color LOL) but the drink is bomb.

It's watermelon/mango/strawberry/wild blueberry. The watermelon gets processed in the Vitamix into a juice, then I add the other guys. :)

    • Do they make converters on boats? I wonder if you could sail and smoothie at the same time. :)

    • Show All
    • Well, you must be ASA (American Sailing Association) certified if you want to skipper it yourself. However, for an additional 250 bucks a day, you can rent a skipper. Now, when you consider that several people can go with you (Guac-Amore berths six, so that's five people and the skipper). If you want to take it out for a weekend say to Catalina (and Marina Sailing has its own private moorings on Catalina so you don't have to make reservations) with you and four buddies, then you can rent a skipper. If you divide the cost up between the five of you, it would run you each about $250 dollars for the whole weekend. Since you rented the boat, you need not get a hotel room (and they can be pricey on Avalon). All-in-all, it's about the same cost as if you cruised there by Catalina Express and rented a hotel.

    • Mind you, you can cut that cost by more than half if you are ASA certified and don't have to rent a skipper and you take it out on a weekday.

    • Applesauce, huh? That's an awesome idea--one that I'd never thought of before. Gonna have to try that out.

    • Yeah, it acts as a sweetener. Definitely try it!

  • Yeah I make my own smoothies, mainly because I can'rt stand melon, banana or mango and they put them in almost every shop made smoothie.

    It's all about the berries and apple juice for me. Raspberries, blueberries, bilberries, blackberries... god I want a smoothie now...

  • Yup via taking a pair of gloves, finding the good soft/juicy fruit and then squeezing the living crap out of them with my hands until they're no more into a nice sized bowl (#^ ^#) #YouCanGuessTheRest
