    non-healthy by adding cream or cream cheese??? ………either one would add not only flavor but calcium……..I find it very frustrating that people worry so much over things like this (unless their doctor tells them not to eat such things)……and vegan eating can be unhealthy unless you are super diligent about it

    Used my Blendtec for the first time, made a smoothie, it started to smoke under the unit? Just received it 2 days ago. Return it. And the company is sending me another one. The smoothie was great.

    No, just no. Your body doesn’t absorb the calcium you are talking about very well at all and dairy is proven to be bad for you. If you want calcium, eat some dark greens not soup.
