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.

    I would make a smoothie.  Seriously, we make them every day!  But, after that, I’d try making my own almond milk.

    I have always wanted to visit Serendipity in New York and try out their Frozen Hot Chocolate. I’ve heard they are divine!!! As I live out west and New York is a long way from here, I’ve tracked down a recipe that is supposed to be like the famous Frozen Hot Chocolate of Serendipity’s. That’s what I would love to try whipping up first in my new Vitamix Blender!

    Tuna salad with a little olive oil instead of mayo. And mustard seed. And celery. And apple chunks. And golden raisins. And dill weed. And lemon juice. And parsley.

    And then I’d put it on a bed of arugula with two thick slices of tomato on top, and stuff the whole lot between a couple slices of gently toasted Powerseed bread.

It will be a fresh veggie base with garlic and other spices, yet to be determined. Maybe some hot Italian sausage from Marshallville Meats. Chunk bite sized golden potatoes. Hmmmm, I will finish the recipe when I am making it with my new Vitamix that I so would LOVE to win!
