Give it a whirl!

As promised here’s some pics of what I’ve been blending into oblivion with my Vita Mix 🙂  It runs the gamut from savory to sweet, and includes a whole array of colors!  What would I do without my buddy Vinny?  Yup, I named my Vita Mix Vinny, something I tend to do quite often with inanimate objects actually.  My laptop is actually named Truman because macs have built-in cameras and it makes me feel like I’m on the Truman Show when I turn it on.  Any-who…First on the menu: Pureed Parsnips! Steamed & peeled parsnips, 1/2 a vanilla bean – scraped out, a few splashes of homemade Brown Rice Milk and some Earth Balance light.  Next up a split bowl of Pumpkin Pudding (soy-free unlike my other Pumpkin Pudding) & Strawberry Pudding!  I used Katie’s recipe for agar pudding shown here in my post on Cocoa Pudding.  Basically I just omitted the cocoa powder and added a bunch of frozen strawberries to one batch and pumpkin puree to another batch and pureed it all before allowing each one to set in the fridge.  Simple!
Vegan Banana-Cocoa Mousse anyone???  Another CCV recipe modified slightly:  1/3 package morinu silken firm tofu, 1/2 tsp agave nectar, about 1-2 tbsp banana slices, 2 tsp cocoa powder (or more to taste) and 1-2 tsp nut milk to thin things out a touch.
…and last, but not least Broccoli Soup!!!  I added some silken tofu to this towards the end of blending for extra creaminess. Thanks for all the yummers food Vinny!  Hmmm maybe he could be my Valentine… I’ll let him and the fiancé duke it out later 😉  Have a good afternoon chickadees!  I’m going to go relax and read for a bit until the boy gets off work.  I had a work trip yesterday at a casino, which was fun, but I’m worn out now!  I’m not so much of a gambler, but dinner was excellent and it was sorta like a paid vacation complete with a king size bed and a mini-fridge full of yummy nuts & fruits.
