A Vitamix(R) can do much more than just making tasty smoothies. This book provides ways to eat real, whole foods when time is limited. A Vitamix(R) does the manual chopping, grinding or mincing – just a convenient and nearly instant way to get those servings of fruits and vegetables that are so often skipped. Grinding flours at home is now easily within reach instead of buying flours that were ground months ago. These breads, pancakes, muffins and scones have maximum flavour and nutrition from the flour still at its peak. Robin Asbell has created an extensive collection of tantalising and innovative recipes that get the most out of this exceptional appliance. Delicious dishes range from nutritious breakfasts to fresh sauces, sumptuous soups, dips and spreads to desserts that invite requests for seconds. A chapter on baby foods and another on nut butters round out this terrific Vitamix(R) cookbook. There are 300 mouthwatering recipes on: * Smoothies; * Smoothie Bowls and Parfaits; * Juices and Blends; * Fresh Flours and Baking; * Baby Food; * Alternative Milks; * Sauces; * Dressings and Marinades, Spice Pastes and Blends; * Soups; * Dips and Spreads; * Burgers and Loaves; * Desserts; * Ice Cream, Sorbets, Milkshakes and Popsicles; * Truffles and Energy Balls; * Alcoholic Drinks; * Scrubs, Masks and Lotions. Asbell also includes useful information on the differences among the different series, tips and techniques that demonstrate how to turn the Vitamix(R) into an invaluable workhorse in the home kitchen.
