VITAMIX Give Away! Worth $424!

by brenda on April 4, 2013

If you were to enter my kitchen you’d likely see 1 or 2 appliances out on the island. First, you’d see my crockpot, full of broth. That’s common sight in my kitchen. Second, you’d see my Vitamix. About 5 or 6 years ago, my hubby got me a refurbished Vitamix, because I had been wanting a good quality blender. Since the day I got it, I have used my blender a lot! I LOVE my blender.

I’ve been making kefir from our cow’s milk lately, and I’m trying to consume some every day. I don’t like it plain, I need it sweetened somehow. My favorite way to drink kefir is with strawberries and honey, mixed up in my Vitamix. I’ll share the recipe tomorrow!

We make smoothies, pureed soups, banana pancakes and sauces in our Vitamix. It is an essential tool in our kitchen. I don’t know how we would have made it through the GAPS Intro without the Vitamix. I really appreciate the tamper device, because I can push foods closer to the blade and make sure that everything is mixed up nicely. One warning though–you must put the  lid on before you use the tamper device, or the blades will chew the tamper to shreds (ask me how I know! ;) ).

 

So, since I love my Vitamix, and I love all of my readers, I want to GIVE ONE AWAY!!!

I’m giving away a Vitamix CIA Professional with the dial (instead of just “high” and “low” settings). It will look something like this:

  • Carrie O’Rourke

    Nice to see another farm family into great health! We’ve had our Vitamix for over 20 years I think, and it’s probably about time to get a newer model. I would LOVE a professional VM. [I've been wanting to make a liver pate again... so that's what I would make. But we use ours all the times for smoothies, and chopping veggies... now I have to think what all we make...]

  • lynn

  • Tara

    I would love to make smoothies and homemade “larabars” with my vitamix if I win!

  • Melissa Ann

    Any chance you could do a post on budgeting on a whole foods diet? I’m sort of jealous you have chickens and milk from your own cow. We make about $32K take home and with five in the house and buying conventional raised real foods only it’s hard to keep it under $450 a month. I’d love to add in grass fed meat once a week… but this seems way out of our budget. :(

    Thanks for the fun giveaway :)

  • Ashley

    GAPS pancakes and nut butters!

    Something happened to my Vitamix some years ago when we moved. I have missed it terribly and not been able to replace it. I definitely need a WIN!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/debra.viola.7 Debra Viola

    I had a wonderful smoothie made with a Vitamix it contained berries and almonds and yogurt. The taste and texture were divine. I think that would be my first Vitamix treat. I also had a hot carrot squash soup made and basically cooked in the Vitamix. It was delicious and I could not get over the fact that no “cooking” was required. The Vitamix did it all. How cool is that?! I have wanted one for several years now but with 7 sons still at home, there never seems to be enough left in the budget to make this purchase. I know that the Vitamix will actually save our family money and make food preparation a pleasure, I just have to start a serious saving plan; so that some day in the not too distant future, I will have a Vitamix setting on my counter that I can use throughout my daily food prep. That would be a dream come true. :-)

  • Carinn

    Smoothies, pudding, ice cream, almond butter, soups… oh, I’m sure the list would be endless!

  • http://www.facebook.com/HomeschoolDistractions JoAnn Kuhn

    Getting a Vitamix is on my list of things to get when we can afford it. There are so many other things ahead of it though that it will be a while.

    I’ve been looking for a one-appliance-does-it-all kind of machine, and the Vitamix seems to come pretty close. Aside from using it for green smoothies and baby food, I would love to try this blender crepe recipe I just found. Crepes are another great way of using up our own chicken eggs, and the blender version sounds super easy!

    Living the Primal lifestyle, I can think of a bazillion reasons to use a Vitamix! Broths, smoothies, soups and sauces… Nut butters, mayonnaise, oh the list goes on! I have a little cheapie plastic blender that is on it’s last legs… The pitcher is warped from the dishwasher, the little black rubber thingy on the bottom is worn down to nubs (smells like I’m burning tires when I use it). So, yeah! I would absolutely LOVE a gorgeous new Vitamix! Thanks for all you do!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=728395391 Sandee Hill

    I would love one of these. I’d use it all the time, but most often would be my smoothies. I make one almost daily, and my poor old blender just can’t keep up!

  • Jen A.

    I just found your site through pinterest. I would make smoothies and blended meals for my son who’s fed through a g-tube. Looks like this would be perfect!

  • Heather C

    What wouldn’t I make! Well I’ve been wanting one for a long time, the first thing I would make would be mango sorbet off the Vitamix website. I started researching ways to help my non verbal autistic son and came across your wonderful blog. A Vitamix would definitely help us prepare healthy and nutrient dense food for him. Thank you for all the wonderful info

  • Tessa

    I love me a VitaMix! I have used friends before and have dreamed of having one for myself. I would make all sorts of smoothies, nut milks, sauces, and soups! My favorite would be a green smoothie with pear, apple, flax seed, ginger, and LOTS of leafy greens.

  • http://twitter.com/alexrberger alexander berger

    Vita-something catchy- mix, they put several kitchen tools out of use, namely a bar blender, an immersion blender, a full fiber juicer, and for some uses a food processors. I would use mine to make all sorts of yummy health supportive dishes, like this one from my blog spicey avocado chocolate mouse! http://thenourishingnosh.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/sweet-and-spicy-chocolate-mousse/

  • Lisa

  • http://www.facebook.com/sabrina.johnson.7 Sabrina Johnson

    My daughter has a Vitamix and she says it is the best blender. I make a green smoothy every morning, so I would use it every day for that to start with. I am sure I can come up with many more uses for it. I have tried to make my own almond flour and my current blender just doesn’t work that well for fine blending. The Vitamix would be a great addition to my kitchen! Thanks for the contest! Good luck everyone!
