What won my husband over? Orange Julius. As a kid he LOVED the drink Orange Julius, and after we saw how they used a vitamix at DQ to make them he was completely and utterly won over.
Moving on...today after making my hubby a breakfast Orange Julius, which he liked so much he paid me for it (hehehe), I decided I wanted to make some sorbet.
I threw in
5 big frozen strawberries (I bought a ginormous bag from Costco)
1 tsp vanilla
1 splash of milk (I wasn't sure it would blend well without)
turn on blender, use tamper to push the flying strawberries into the blades and 20-30 seconds later, BOOM, you've got a frozen delicious fat free nummy dessert (or breakfast in my case).
The one ingredient soft serve ice cream recipe that is blended frozen bananas is going around on the web, and I wanted to make my own delicious version with strawberries. It...was...awesome, and as you can see in the picture, quite pretty.
