My husband and I recently became the proud owners of a Vitamix blender. The amazing, all-in-one cooking tool promises to make smoothies, ice cream, dips and even hot soups! Given that fruit can be expensive, we almost always start off our smoothie mixtures with a banana. And then I realized that bananas, the affordable fruit, are actually a great starter for many of my favorite dessert recipes!
