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.

  24. I am a Raw Vegan, and over the past few years I’ve been using a 20 dollar blender, but now I am creating raw gourmet dishes to sell at Farmers Markets and the $20 blender aint getting the job done. So winning this blender would fill me with so much appreciation I would cry tears of joy because I will have the necessary tool to create my healthy treats to share with the world! I use my blender everyday (I am always in the kitchen creating delicious raw vegan meals). Frequently I create raw vegan cake batter, pizza flour, cheese, Ice Cream, cookies, cheese cake filling and so much more!

    When I win this blender I will make raw vegan cake batter and Carmel maple frosting, because my mothers birthday is coming up!

    Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter a competition like this :)

  25. The first thing I’d make would be squash soup with maple syrup…yum! With this cold weather, soup would hit the spot.  Then, smoothies every morning…and maybe lunch…and maybe snacks in between!

  26. I am subscribed and I am also following on Pinterest.

  27. I’d grind my own GF oat and rice flour… And whipped cream… 

  28. I’ve subscribed also!!

  40. I would start by combining all of my favorite cold weather vegetables – like pumpkin, cauliflower, zucchini – and roasting them and then throwing them into the blender for an amazing detox soup. Anything is possible with a strong blender like a Vitamix :)

  42. My 2-year old son LOVES his ‘ice cream shakes’ and has no idea they’re really healthy fruit, veggie and ice shakes!  The 1st thing I’d mix with the Vitamix is an improved version of these shakes.  I’ve always had to be careful on the texture of what I throw into the mix but with the Vitamix, more nutritious, fibrous veggies could be added without anyone noticing the texture change.  I have been dreaming of the Vitamix since we got to taste test it in a local store.  :-)

  43. My 2-year old has an adventurous palette and is always asking for soup.  I bet a Vitamix could handle a pureed soups without having to boil the veggies too soft.  I’d start experimenting right away, with all of the veggies in my fridge!  That would probably end up to be a broccoli puree of some kind since my lil guy loves broccoli (strange kid, I know)!

  44. I recently had the most amazing puréed bacon cheddar potato soup… with a Vitamix, I would try to recreate that soup first thing!   

  45. Chocolate Banana Nut Ice Cream!  Really, there are too many ideas for 1st thing to make with a new Vitamix!  It’d depend on what time of day it was delivered. :-)  A great 1st recipe idea (for a warm mid-day snack) would be ice cream made from frozen bananas, walnuts and chocolate.  Yum!  I’m not into banana flavored things unless they’re made with real banana but I bet the Vitamix would make the most impressive banana ice cream! 

  46. Soup! Tortilla one of my favorites

  47. I am so in… I’d be whipping up a seafood chowder!

  48. A protein shake!

  49. Homemade nut butter!

  50. I subscribed!
