Green smoothies are what’s for breakfast.  They are the breakfast of champions.  Or at least the breakfast of mamas.  Or at least the breakfast of this mama.  I love them.  I have been indulging in a green smoothie on a daily basis for 5 or 6 years now.

It all began when I wanted a vitamix.  Science guy thought I was nuts for wanting to spend so much money on a blender to make a smoothie.  That is of course until we went to a local home show and he witnessed all the miracles of the vitamix with his own eyes and mouth.  Those vitamix guys powered up smoothies and soups and salsa….oh my!  Before we left that evening, I was the lucky owner of one beautiful vitamix which I scored at a discounted price because it was refurbished!!  Since that day, I have never looked back.  My mornings have been filled with green goodness.  I’ve given my smoothies to my dog and even he approves.

    What is flax milk? Can I use regular milk or yogurt?
    How is a Vitamix better than a regular blender?

      Flax milk is just another dairy alternative. We’ve gone through soy, almond, coconut and rice milk and flax is my favorite but you can certainly use dairy milk or yogurt!

      The vitamix is a super high power blender with a motor like a shark. It’s the dyson of blenders I guess and it can do things that other blenders can’t do like grind almonds! We use it everyday so it was a wise investment for us but I would say a regular blender works just as well!!
