    Speaking of the smoothies in the mall, a lot of places like that do use the vitamix because it is such a good blender to use. I know Smoothie King uses the vitamix and the warranty is awesome too!

    I LOVE my broccoli protein shakes! I use a scoop of vanilla pp, sometimes almond milk, vanilla stevia, and a bunch of frozen broccoli. Sounds weird, but SO yummy!
    If I want some fat, I add: 1/4 or 1/2 avocado and/or coconut manna. Drool.

    Protein ice cream!

    water to first or second line of the bottom of the blender
    Ice to 3/4 the pitcher
    xanthum gum start with about 1/4 tsp but 1/2
    protein powder (choc pb for me)
    some WF choc dip (opt) or Choc stevia drops

    **you can always throw some frozen spinach in there too. Wont affect the taste at all.

    blend!!

    I have to run it a few times and move the ice around 'cause it can get 'stuck' (mine is older/rebuilt Blendtec) but comes out THICK, Creamy and totally soft serve spoonable, instantly! :yum:

    *you will definitely get a full tummy!

    I hope weighing after is fine, because that's how I've always done it.

    I use it in my pwo shake every time :)
