When my bullet dies I'll go out and get a Vitamix!!! Sounds exciting!

Are there any threads devoted to using Vitamix IP recipes?

Being a vegetarian, I might need to count things while I am figuring out whether some of the "meat" substitutes out there would work with the program or not. And, I'd also like to compare the IP vanilla pack with the Jay Robb egg white protein powder I love.

IP Chocolate/Vanilla/Cappucino Drink Mix/RTD/Pudding (tasters choice)
1-2c Spinach, loose leaf
1c Lettuce (optional) <--if you need more 'bulk', I prefer it with just Spinach
2c Coffee, chilled (decaf, half-caf, fully leaded, your choice)
Extracts or Sweetener (optional)

1. Put the Spinach, optional Lettuce & Sweetener/Extracts, and 2 cups chilled coffee in a blender ~2 minutes on High to pulverize/liquefy the greens.
2. Add in your IP product of choice and blend ~10 seconds on Low to mix thoroughly. Adding the IP product in last to blend helps keep down the "froth", hence why you preblend the spinach first.
3. Check consistency & taste - adjust accordingly (more sweetener? more coffee?).
4. Serve over ice and enjoy! You can also blend in the ice for a 'milkshake' (pudding gives a great thick texture for this).

*My 'personal recipe' is: IP Chocolate RTD + 2c Half-Caf Coffee, chilled + 2c Spinach + 1 tbsp SF Torani Vanilla.
*I had it just about EVERY morning in Phase 1 and have moved to decaf coffee as my occasional afternoon snack in Phase 3 with all Lettuce (since I have my 2cups veggies at lunch now).
*You can substitute water or flavored herbal teas in place of coffee
*You can substitute WB Yogurt or any other Drink Mix in place of the Chocolate/Vanilla/Cappuccino - I just listed those since they go with coffee - which is my liquid of choice!
WOW. This is going to save me! Having a hard time with all the veggies. Thanks!!!

Just copied every recipe and put it into a document

My bf's dad is a diabetic and also has to watch his kidneys (ie. low sugar, low salt diet). All these purees sound perfect for him! May have to pass on these recipes.

I steamed some asparagus last night and I cut off the ends to keep for my dog. As I was pureeing the ends to mix into her raw food - I thought a pureed asparagus recipe would be delish to mix into soups! (asparagus and other veggies with spices - similar to the other recipes I've seen earlier in this thread). Any ideas?

I would also like a Puree Leek recipe

My newest favorite puree (Rainbow used this as a base for her Rasberry Rhubarb Fool recipe):

8 c chopped rhubarb (fresh or frozen)
cook in pan or microwave with "a little" water until soft
Puree in Vitamix (or other blender) with Red Mio (to taste) and plain Gelatin. (I use Great Lakes brand, 1 Tbsp in bulk. I assume you could use 1 pkg Knox unflavored.)

Pour into single serving bowls.
Chill until gelled.
Makes 4, 1 c. servings of a "sweet" 2 c. (from raw) vegetable treat with a "custardy" texture.

You could also forgo the Mio & plain gelatin and use a protein Jello instead to make this one of your meals or evening snack with veggies.
Since this is 4 servings of veggies, you would add 4 protein jello packets. You may have to play with the water in the the recipe a little if you choose this route.

Spent the whole day whipping up some of these purees and cauli rice. I'm a little uncertain about the cauli/celery/garlic one. I avoided cauliflower like the plague before this diet, but I'm starting to work it in. I'll see how it is in the soup. I definitely like that it'll add some thickness and volume to the soups.

I also made the asparagus one, which I found a bit bitter with the lemon. I'll probably cut back a bit on that next time, but otherwise very tasty. I love asparagus, and was super happy to find it both on sale AND at 50% off (benefits of shopping Monday morning).

BUT! The roasted red pepper sauce... holy cow. Nevermind this being "OP", I'm never going to stop making this stuff. On the agenda for this week... bags and bags of peppers from Costco to make my traditional fall "spaghetti" sauce, but with this instead. I added a bunch of fresh herbs that really add some nice secondary flavours.

It was nice to spend a day in the kitchen, I love to cook and have been neglecting it the last year or so. Love that this program is getting me back into it.
