Vitamix and a Juicer!
I have to admit, I did try to make a Sorbet when I first opened the box but ended up with a smoothie. So I poured it into Ice Cube trays and made juice cubes with it. These will make healthy little refreshers. My first drink was a Grape, Strawberry and Orange Smoothie (handful of grapes, strawberries and 1 orange, made enough for 1 smoothie). Then last night I was trying to make beverage, and ended up with a Sorbet (go figure)- You know the saying Nothing is as easy as it looks! It's easy, but it just takes a little finesse!
I didn't video tape it but I did make my green juice in the Vitamix and I have to say "CURRENTLY I prefer the Juice Extracted juice rather than the "smoothie" version with all the pulp still in". However, I'm not giving up and will keep trying it to see if it's just an acquired taste.
This Video was done July 25th - my first smoothie- click play to watch -
