I start out my day making a smoothie, and it is very creative. When I first got the Vitamix, I followed the recipe book pretty exclusively. But I came to realize that I can do my own thing and thus, every day begins with a creative act of making a smoothie. I have come to experiment with different ingredients. I thought that I needed a banana, but when I ran out of bananas, I used an apple instead. Once in a while, I'll pick a fig from our tree, and that is wonderful too. Other ingredients I have tried: peanut butter, sliced almonds, walnuts (don't recommend that), cantaloupe, strawberries, Greek yogurt. Almond milk and frozen mixed berries are the constant ingredients.
Mom dug up about 6 ginger roots from the yard recently, and I have been throwing in a slice in my smoothie. It gives it a fresh bite that I love. It is my favorite ingredient.
I remember when I had a hard time doing something creative every day. Now, it is a way of life.
