Just drill about a 1/4" hole in the bottom of a cup,and pour thru.It should strain out all the foam.

LOL, thanks...I should have phrased my question differently: how to NOT CREATE foam in the first place! =D

My g/f has the theory that it has to do with time spent blending, but I've disproved that...so I'm not sure what causes foam (I mean, what process, what action; I know foam has to do with air)....

I heard they are making a move starring a Macaulay Culkin look alike about a kid who gets left at home with a Vitamix. It's called Foam Alone.

Blending shouldn't create Foam, or rather the foam is homogenized within. It's Juicing that creates Foam, making it easy to remove. In that respect, Juicing is better than Blending. However, I still believe Blending our food so we take it 'Liquid', with fiber, is the Best Way to eat, even though some Foam (with whipped-air) is consumed......WY

Not sure how to avoid foam while blending, since there's already air in the container that gets pulled into the liquid during the blending process. However, after blending, using a gravy separator aka gravy strainer you can pour out the liquid while leaving the foam behind.

Wishing you vibrant health
