    Hi Teresa,
    It would be totally awesome to win a vitamix, Im so excited. Ever since I bought your 80/20 Diet book I have been longing for one. I have a vitamix that is at least 15 years old (when it was under the moulinex brand) but not sure if the same thing? Anyway it certainly can’t do the same things your vitamix can do…lol. I’ll have to start thinking of a great smoothie. It is going to be hard as I have made quite a number of your’s and love them all. Don’t know if I am that creative. I guess we’ll see…lol. Wish me luck!

    My favourite power smoothie is:

    Handful of mixed berries (frozen is fine)
    Soy Milk or Almond milk
    Tsp of Coconut oil
    spoon of natural yoghurt
    1/2 cup of ice
    scoop of protein powder

    Blend all together, and enjoy a powerful energising smoothie.

    Hope this wins me a Vitamix, cause my blender has nearly had it. :) Maria

      Hi Teresa, I tried to submit my green smoothie recipe and the message came back saying “waiting moderation” what does that mean?

      Also do you have a recipe for a gluten free carrot cake please?
