Ingredients
  1. 4 carrots, whole
  2. 1 cup peeled butternut squash
  3. 1/2 cucumber, roughly chopped and leave peel on
Optional
  1. Half-inch piece of ginger
  2. Shake of cinnamon
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 4-6 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Prep all ingredients, then place into Vitamix container. Blend on high for 45-60 seconds. Serve immediately.
Notes
  1. This recipe was originally designed to be made with a juicer. By making it with the Vitamix, you're retaining the fiber, but it also comes out much thicker. Add water to suit your own desired thickness.

Ingredients
  1. 4 cups watermelon, chopped with rind removed
  2. 1/2 tsp fresh ginger
  3. 1/2 small lemon or lime with peel
  4. 10 blackberries, fresh or frozen
  5. 4-6 ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in Vitamix and set to Variable 1. Slowly turn up to Variable 10, then kick up to High. Blend for 30-45 seconds. Serve with a spring of mint on top...if you're fancy.
Notes
  1. There's so much water/juice already in watermelon that you shouldn't need to add any water, but if the recipe is coming out too thick, feel free to add a little liquid to thin it out. Also, experiment with lime vs. lemon to see which you prefer. Lime will give it more of a tropical taste, where lemon will be brighter with stronger citrus notes.
