1. New blog posts, site updates, and other things we’re proud to be sharing
Good morning from Chicago!
We get a lot of nice notes from our readers and people who get their Vitamix through us. We should share them more.
But here’s one that’s hopefully inspiring for you.
“Hey! Loving our Vitamix! Making smoothies in it almost every morning, and trying to work in other dishes more.
We made your queso in it — SO GOOD! And promptly passed the recipe (and your site!) on to friends.
Thanks for all you guys do!”
Either way, here are three of our most popular pieces from the last few months.
Listen: About a zillion things that two Vitamix super fans make in theirs. From “Learn True Health”: Delicious, Fast, Affordable, and Healthy Recipes for a Whole Foods-Focused Diet. (link to iTunes episode)
Read: About how to use a Vitamix to ease into a plant-based diet. The Perfect Mix. It’s $2.99. (We’ll send you $5 if you read the whole thing and are not satisfied. That’s a 167% money back guarantee!)
As always, thanks for reading and being a part of this.

2. New recipe posts we’re drooling over
This is peanut butter mousse. Worthy of your attention. 🙂
+ This avocado dill sauce is a nice alternative to whatever other sauce you were considering putting on pasta. (Yes, that’s real pasta. Go make some.)
3. Classic recipe we’re re-showcasing
This mango smoothie is the one that started it all. Whether you’re just beginning or beginning again, this simple smoothie might be perfect.
+ Because Shalva had this oh so refreshing and delicious drink ready for me upon returning (drenched) from playing outdoor basketball: The Watermelon Man
4. Vitamix news and updates we’re enjoying

5. Articles, posts, and products from around the web we’re thinking about
Netflix original movie about a super pig: Okja. It’s beautiful, wacky, heartbreaking, silly, sweet, sad, uplifting, hopeful, and overall, really well done.
+ This huge number: Farmers poured out almost 50 million gallons of unsold milk last year — actually poured it out, into holes in the ground. Why? Decreased demand. Amid a historic glut, a secretive, government-sponsored entity is putting cheese anywhere it can stuff it. From Bloomberg Business: The Mad Cheese Scientists Fighting to Save the Dairy Industry
Okay, all for now.
Thanks and good things,
Shalva and Lenny
P.S. We’ve been religiously making queso after trips to the grocery store for a while. But recently, we’ve been making double batches and jarring them. Incredible. Here’s Shalva taking a break from post-grocery-store email to admire our queso jar fortress.
