Rated 4 out of 5 by jescjo16 from Thick and Rich I made this in the C5200 model last night. When I first tried it I thought the flavor of the greens was too prominent, however, after sitting in the fridge overnight it tastes great this morning! It is extremely filling as well. I will be making this again soon!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robin G from Not good. I did not like it. I had a hard time even finishing it. Something about the pomegranate juice and the avocado just doesn't mix well. Do not try. Use your ingredients for good, not bad. Also, maybe i didn't mix it well enough, but there was a bit of green water on top of drink.

Can my vitamin chop up pomegranate seeds
Yes your Vitamix is capable of blending through pomegranate seeds. When working with seeds, to achieve the smoothest consistency we always suggest straining through the filtration bag.

How do I keep my raw flax seeds from clumping in my vegetable/fruit smoothie?
Try adding the raw flax seed in through your lid plug while the smoothie is blending.

How can I reduce the amount of carbs...sugar in it?
If you would like to lower the sugar in it just remove the dates that will have the largest impact on the sugar number. This will also help to reduce the carbs.

I have a 3600 model vitamix, a family gift passed on to me It runs great as expected, please help me when I made a beverage of 4 carrots, 1 small Apple and a small amount of ginger, I turned it on low then hi it's too thick to drink
You can add a cup or two of water to thin this out if you would like.

Can Vitamix handle fruits with skin such as a whole lemon or kiwi without removing skin?? What about celery?
The Vitamix can handle those ingredients but the flavor profile may not be desirable. The skins of lemons and kiwi are bitter. We recommend to zest the lemon and then remove the rest of the peel using only the lemon and the zest in most recipes.
