    That sounds good, Pax! I have to be careful as I have to end up with something totally smooth so the little bits don't get stuck in my wires and between my teeth, since I can only brush the fronts, and not very well. And our blender isn't super high-powered, so I'm doing stuff like starting with Bolthouse carrot juice (yummy), adding spicy V-8, raw spinach, and plain Greek yogurt, which is all easier to grind up than a lot of raw veggies. When we used to have a Vitamix, I could do things like your recipe.

    Yeah, my recipe is definitely for a vitamix. We bought one when our bullet died and it is fantastic, I think a less powerful blender would leave a lot of chunks.

    We used to have a Vitamix and used it all the time. Motor finally died after about ten years. We just don't have the storage space in our motorhome for one (nor the money to buy one at the moment with all my medical bills). Fortunately, we were able to borrow a blender from my mother, as we only carry an immersion (stick) blender in the motorhome.

    Hang in there! It sounds like I won't be able to comfortably eat for a short time after my cervical spine surgery, but nothing like what you're going through. May things continue to improve!

    Thanks Catrin! I am beyond excited about getting the wires cut on Tuesday afternoon. I'll still have arch bars and elastics but will be able to start eating soft foods again. Can't wait. I will not want a milkshake or smoothie for a long time after this!
