A New Member of the Family

Fraser and I went to the SD Home Show on Friday and I talked him into finally purchasing the coveted Vita Mix. I am in love! I have visions of a long and satisfying relationship with the machine. I have tried smoothies and chocolate ice cream. The smoothies were yummy but we settled for chocolate shakes with chunks of chocolate in them. I quickly named it a Blizzard and convinced Emma that was what I was going for.
I can't wait to grind wheat and quinoa for fresh flour. And apparently you can cook soup in them too. I think the KitchenAid is a little jealous though.
Anyone have any recipes that I need? Or suggestions for what I did wrong with the ice cream? Cause that is important, making fresh ice cream was the deal breaker for Fraser and I need to keep him happy. (At least for the first few months until the novelty wears off.)
