Vitamix Fail

I just used our new Vitamix to make a peanut butter, banana, blueberry smoothie. Yum, right? It also contains flax seed, grapes, spinach, cranberries, cucumber, chia seeds, strawberries, raspberries, and nectarines. Now, I'm just kicking back and relaxing with my refreshing beverage, courtesy of my own clever Vitamix recipe.

Actually, that's a bit of a lie. A more accurate description would be "my own Vitamix recipe for disaster". It tastes horrible! Just because you can use the Vitamix to blend everything, doesn't mean you should. Also, I didn't have any peanut butter, so I just threw in a bunch of nuts. You can do that with a Vitamix, right? I honestly thought you could do that with a Vitamix.

I'm too much of a cheapskate to throw this out. If only I hadn't made 8 cups! The Vitamix container is so large. It beckons for me to fill it.

It's so healthy. I really should drink it, especially considering that my breakfast today was Red Vines. It smells bad though. It tastes like feet.

Anyone have any advice for another ingredient I can throw in to mask all the other yuckiness? I have some candied ginger from Trader Joes. Might that help? I really like my candied ginger and hate to waste it.

I could maybe top it off with vodka and donate it to some needy frat boys?

Mmmm, yummy! Want to come over and help me drink this? You can have as much as you want. I'll even throw some in a cup for you to enjoy on your drive home.

Really.
