Today I’m super stoked to offer you all the chance to win a Vitamix 5200, my favorite high powered blender. I’ve had my very own Vitamix for 11 years; The whole family enjoys its features and we put it to use several times a day, no joke!

I use my Vitamix for literally everything from soups to smoothies to dressings to pancakes.  It is also my go to kitchen tool when making homemade nut milks.

Ginger Cilantro Green Shake

Posted on March 16, 2010

The idea for this green smoothie comes from the amazing Sarma of oneluckyduck.com.  I recently purchased her book Living Raw Food and am loving it.  While some of the recipes can be complex, she has many that can be made in minutes. 

This Ginger Cilantro Shake is a hybrid of her Cilantro-Pineapple Shake and her Bangkok Baby.  Here is my version, a nice healthy green drink for Saint Patrick’s day.
