Vitamix for making soup, coconut milk, almond milk, etc.

Does anyone, other than myself, own a Vitamix?  Have you made your own soup, coconut milk, almond milk or anything else Whole30 compliant with it?

I've had mine for about five years, but I never used it (sad to say) for other than making smoothies, which of course, are not compliant.

Suggestions are welcome.

Yes, I've made coconut milk (great!) almond milk (ok) and soups (I prefer the stove, but it's fantastic for the final step if you're making a pureed soup. You can also use it for making not-too-thick dips, sauces and I have used it to blend up herbs, aromatics and liquid for marinades.

Love my vitamix.  I recently made almond flour - so easy.   Coconut flour will be easy as well.

Pureed soups like tomato and butternut squash.

Mayo - easy and delicious.  Will never buy store bought again.

I will do milks in my vitamix.

Before Whole 30, did pizza dough in the Vitamix.   The best pizza dough I ever made and best pizza ever.  No need to buy pizza.

I use my Vitamix a lot, especially this time of year for soups.  One of my secret weapons is pureed cooked cauliflower as a "thickener."  It works great in my chicken chili - my husband has yet to figure out there's cauliflower in his chili!  I will have to try almond milk.
