Works with adjustmentsI adjusted the recipe a bit. I try not to adjust and rate recipes but want to let everyone know that you can puree ginger root using the Vitamix. I left all the skins on, and added a bit of water/ice to help with pureeing. I added 50% in water to my recipe. 400 grams of ginger + 200 grams of water/ice (about 4:1 ratio, I added the ice to keep it cold while pureeing). Using enough ginger root is critical to getting this to puree. I froze the puree and will vacuum seal them after they freeze. When I use the ginger root in the recipe I will add 1.5 times the amount needed to account for the water. 1 tbsp = 1.5 tbsp. Hope this helps anyone who has the idea to

Will be useful in smoothies and recipesI used 3/4 cup ginger in the 32 oz. pitcher. The ginger got chopped, but did not form a paste because it got stuck under the blades and against the sides of the pitcher. I did not want to add liquid to form a paste, so I froze 1 tsp.spoonfuls of the chopped ginger in ice cube trays. It will save a lot of time when preparing smoothies and recipes.

Perfect paste.Hello, I bought about 2 lbs of ginger root. Cleaned it, removed bad pieces, and chopped into inch size. Blended all at the same time, constantly pushing it down on high speed. Did come out warm. Might add ice next time.

Just didn’t work :(I soo wanted this recipe to work, but it just didn’t. Instead of a smooth purée, the ginger was all stringy and fibrous. I think I’ll have to stick to using a micro plane instead.
