    Random Jamie Oliver-series blender. Works for me. :shrug:
    But a really good one: a bag of frozen raspberries, one third of a bag of frozen blueberries, a big scoop of greek yoghurt, soy milk with vanilla, additional vanilla sugar, and some sugar to taste.
    It comes out as a really thick, milkshake-esque mixture, except with seeds. And it tastes damned good. :agreed:

    It was prob my fault by adding too much frozen fruit. The cup some how got locked into place. I had to use a hammer and flathead screwdriver to break it out (lot's of people have had this issue and theres a video of someone doing the same on youtube.) I decided to try using this again with less frozen fruit and add more fresh. No issues so far. One thing I have to keep in mind is that it has a small motor and its made out of plastic.

    This is something I have come up with. Granted it is not that healthy because I added the 100 calorie pack but its very tasty!

    frozen mango chunks
    frozen pineapple chunks
    100 calorie mini brownies
    fat free milk

    As a vegetarian type, I have two solid meals I try to include as often as I can:

    1) Eggs with mushrooms, quinoa, chia, assorted peppers, assorted vegetables (whatever I have pre-cooked in vegetable oil on a baking sheet). Mix, match, marinate to taste.

    2) Simply Orange juice, mangos and/or peaches. (And leftover watermelon vodka)
