I have to update you on the Vitamix!
It is alive and well!!
Turns out it has an automatic shut off if the motor is overheating, which can happen when using low speeds.
The next morning, I tried it again… and it is all working fine and dandy!
I was really worried actually… Sorry for being such a downer for the past few posts. :(
Perfect timing to whip up this fabulous smoothie. The carrot tempers the sweetness from the mango and pineapple juice. It also adds a bit of bulk which I countered with some more water.
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup chopped carrot (1 small carrot)
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup water or 2 ice cubes
1. Add all ingredients to a high-spleed blender and mix until smooth.
