Vitamix 5200 Blender Giveaway

Vitamix® 5200 Blender Giveaway

‘Tis the month for fabulous giveaways, apparently. I sure don’t hear anyone complaining. (You guys love giveaways as much as I do, that much is obvious). And speaking of, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter the DeLallo giveaway for your chance to win a year’s worth of whole wheat pasta. Carbolicious.

Today, however, one lucky L&OO reader will win a Vitamix 5200 Blender! I am SO excited to be able to give one of these away today, considering it really is one of the most used appliances in our kitchen.

Let me tell you, this thing is WAY MORE than just a blender.

Take yesterday’s no-bake pie, for example. Not only does it liquefy bananas, it also crushes cookies, grinds fresh homemade peanut butter, AND whips cream in under 10 seconds flat. In Vitamix-less kitchens, you’d need 3 different appliances to accomplish the same thing. And I don’t know about you but I really (truly) don’t want to wash 3 different appliances.

How’s that for a prize worth winning? Don’t wait another second, click through for your chance to win!

Giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering!

Congratulations to Kelly, comment #945, the randomly selected winner of this giveaway! Hooray!

The fine print: Winner will receive a Vitamix 5200 blender in black, MSRP $449.00. No purchase necessary. Giveaway open to residents of the US and Canada only. Void where prohibited. Winner will have 48 hours to respond otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Bonus entry requirements will be verified if selected as the winner, otherwise an alternate winner will be chosen. Giveaway sponsored by Vitamix®. As always, all opinions written are purely my own.

    Whipped cream, for sure! Homemade whipped cream is the real deal.

    Hmmm…. what would I make … If I shut out reality… then ice cream using fresh frozen fruit, honey and greek yogurt…. but who am I kidding… it’s 26 degrees outside, everything is buried under snow,  so “frozen” is not my favorite word right now.  
    I need something to melt my winter blues… sipping on a hot dark chocolate drink with a medicinal amount of Kahlua added and topped with whipped cream seems just perfect.

    My husband and I are the kind that buy the peanut butter that is JUST peanuts and salt from the store (even, like, “Jiffy Natural” has 3 other ingredients in it) and it seems to get increasingly expensive. I would start making my own peanut butter, stat, because we make a LOT of peanut sauces. Heck, I bet after you crush up the peanuts, you could just throw the rest of the sauce ingredients in there and save yourself the whisking!

I make him Peanut Butter Banana bread and put mini chocolate chips in it just for him :) And he does have a birthday coming up…..

    Oh my gosh I have been lusting after a vitamix forever! There are so many things I would love to try.. I have two young boys and have found a blender just doesn’t cut it when making food for them. I think right now the first thing I would try my hand at would be a creamy delicious soup, butternut squash perhaps!
