Thanks.  I was thinking the same thing about the particles in suspension.  I was amazed though at the vibrancy of green and was wondering what he used.

 

As for the stick blender or vita mix, I usually don't have enough volume to make those particularly effective, which was why I was so hopeful the pre hydrated xanthan would allow me to more easily incorporate it into a small volume of liquid.  I guess I just need to be more aggressive with a hand whisk?

 

I never prehydrate, just lightly shake in the powder while whisking furiously...side to side...which has greatest shear force and is faster and easier to do too. There might be a rare clump that I just fish out.
