My boyfriend bought me a Vita-Mix for Christmas, and I would have opened it on Christmas had the deliveryperson followed directions and didn't leave it on the front stoop for me to run into when I came home :(
This recipe was adapted from the Vita-Mix website (http://vitamix.ahoy.com/recipe/recipe.cgi/0/122/ ). He had no idea I 'tweaked' it; I fed it to my SAD friends and they LOVED it. Just in time for winter, too!
3 cups of butternut squash, cubed
1 large apple, quartered
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 small onion (I added a handful of green onions, too)
1/4 cup almond pulp
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups almond mylk
1. Pour last four ingredients into blender and let go until just warm.
2. Add rest of ingredients until creamy.
3. Garnish with chopped green onion leaves.
