Mixer/Chopper/Blender/Juicer Recipe Ideas?

Recently purchased a mixer/chopper/blender/juicer (similar to the Magic Bullet). Looking for some healthy recipes I can whip up. (The booklet that came with has a limited amount of recipes.) Any thoughts?

Thanks Master. Want to eat drink healthier in the new year. I posted a link for Licuados recipes under beverages, if anyone would like to take a look-see. Time to dust off & put all our cooking gadgets to good use.

hiya mish,
we have a vitamixer as well, and make a lot of fruit squishies (smoothies to all you who don't watch the simpsons). put in ice, a little water or apple juice, honey and whatever fresh and ripe fruit you have around. we like bananas and mango or papaya, bananas and strawberries, raspberries and kiwi, etc.

Thanks BT!
I'm all for smoothies. On the Licuados site I posted (beverages), it's hard to resist those chocolate/peanut butter bananna/ice cream drinks. Keep these healthy recipes coming.

I've been poking around & found a bunch of interesting recipes. The cream of broccoli soup. smoked salmon bisque, espresso mousse & salmon salad w avocado vinaigrette look mighty good.

We have a juicer and the kids like to make apple/ginger juice. Two apples and about a half inch fresh ginger.

Thanks Pam. You must have read my mind. When I read BT's recipes, wanted to say...bet a little ginger would give those smoothies an extra kick.

Here's a smoothie recipe for you to get started with Mish!

2 large "juice oranges", peeled

1 small kiwi, peeled

3 medium/large strawberries

1 green banana, peeled

3 ice cubes

1 oz vanilla (NOT vanilla extract!)

2-3 oz yoghurt

1 tablespoon honey

Blend together until "smooth"...

Enjoy!

(Have never tried this with ginger, and don't think I'd want to... on occaision, can substitute vanilla ice cream for the yoghurt)
