The Vita-Mix Arrival And Vegan Peach Sorbet

April 9, 2010 by Keri

It’s HERE!  The Vita-Mix actually arrived last night (meaning Amazon got it to me in A DAY!), and I was so excited that I didn’t know what to do with it for right away.  I put it in it’s place on the counter between my bad knives (I need new ones, but hey, with a Vita-Mix who needs to cut anything?!) and my KitchenAid stand mixer and just sort of stared at it for awhile.  Actually, I’ve had it for a day now and I’m still pretty awestruck by it.

The first thing I had to make was a sorbet.  One of the things I was most excited about was making frozen desserts.  After getting the notification that the Vita-Mix was arriving, I ran out to the store and got a pound of frozen peaches for the occasion.  Since I’m new to the machine, I used the simple sorbet recipe that is in the included cookbook which used just 1 lb. frozen peaches,1 cup rice milk, 1 teaspoon 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup (I used less) sweetener.

Vegan Ice Cream Recipes

The vegan sorbet was so delicious; we couldn’t believe how quick and easy it was to make, especially on my first attempt using it!  Our stupid old blender couldn’t even chop ice! There are so many things I can’t wait to make with nut butters, nut milks, and hummus topping the list.  If you have any recipe suggestions for me I would absolutely love them since I’m still unaware of all this baby can do!

    That’s how I was when I got my Blendtec! I just got it out and said “Quick! Give me something I can blend!”

      Haha! My husband was disappointed because he expected me to whip it out and mushify everything in the house.

  2. That’s exciting :D I’ve actually never made sorbet…what am I thinking?!

      Aww, so true. He can eat sorbet to his sweet little heart’s (or maybe just tummy’s) content. :)

      I love it!! I definitely haven’t used mine to its full potential yet because I still have some purchased raw nut butter and some nut milk that I don’t want to go to waste because I know I’ll only want to use the fresh stuff once it’s made and ignore the store-bought!
