To celebrate our 4-year-blogoversary, my birthday and Thanksgiving, we’re giving away this stunner. The Blendtec blender is one awesome machine. It is my new obsession. I can’t stop blending things; spinach, apples, raw carrots, flax seeds, grapes,…

I told my mom it is a “dikiy zver” (wild animal). It does have a “wild side” after all (the jar has a 5th side for efficiency). You know what’s really wild about this blender? The blade is completely dull! I can reach inside while washing it and not lose a finger. It whirls food up to 300MPH and pulverizes it into submission.

Oh and there are preset buttons that you can push and it goes through the program adjusting speed all on it’s own to give you a perfect smoothie every time in under a minute. No need to open the lid and swirl it to check the consistency. Oh oh and you see that Twister Jar? Can you say nutella and almond butter ten times fast?! It processes the really thick mixtures.

Oooooh and the blender and the Twister Jar come with two cookbooks which are a gold mine. I’ve made about 10 of these recipes in 1 week. (If you’re as excited as I am, you should pause and take a breath before continuing).

Blendtec where have you been all my life? My son is drinking whole food smoothies that are jam packed with superfoods and antioxidants and I’m one super happy mama. 

Here is one of the delicious blender recipes from the Blendtec cookbook (pg 14):

Green Flaxy Smoothie Ingredients:

1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp flaxseeds
2 clementines, peeled
1 banana, peeled
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks

How To Make Green Flaxie Smoothie:

1. Add of the ingredients to the blender, secure the lid and select “whole juice”. It’s done in under a minute and the flax seeds blend up really well in my Blendtec (they aren’t gritty!).

I might have tossed in a few extra pineapple chunks for my sweet tooth. But ya know what? There’s no added sugar in this. Yep, it’s au natural. Happy Mama indeed.

    I’ve been wanting a Blendtec blender for the longest time! But unfortunately with the price tag I can’t allow myself the luxury. I love love to win this because I rarely win much of anything so it would definitely be a dream to win.

    Happy birthday, blogoversary and Thanksgiving! And thank you for the Blendtec giveaway. I never win these things, but hey – nothing ventured, nothing gained. I came this close (again!) to buying a reconditioned Vitamix, but then budget realities took over (again!) and I put it off (again!) Would be wonderful to win a Blendtec, especially since spending lots of time over the years reading side-by-side comparisons, I’d be happy with either brand. Meanwhile, thank you also for the recipe, which I’ll see if my old Waring blender can handle! 🙂

    Why do I want one?!?! The question should be why WOULDNT I want one..lol My blender broke about 4 months ago, one that lasted me about 6 years. I loved it, made green smoothies almost everyday. Since it broke I have not found a worthy replacement, This is the blender I have been looking for..but considering its a little on the expensive side I cant go out and buy one, so to win this would be a REAL DREAM COME TRUE!!!!

    Oh man, what I wouldn’t do with a Blendtec blender!!! I’ve been wanting to incorporate more raw foods into my diet and I know that having a blender like this one is crucial for taking the raw food step. I went through chemo 2 years ago to beat Lymphoma, which I did and I’m now “healthy” 🙂 But unfortunately chemo leaves a trace and I would love to go more raw to get my body as clean as I can from the after-effects of chemo. Fingers crossed that I win! Good luck to all the contenders!

    Hi
    The reason why I want to win this giveaway is because I have a very old blender that barely even blends yogurt (yes it’s that weak) so winning this would make my life so much easier. I’m a smoothies kinda girl and have to go to Jamba Juice to satisfy my smoothie craving about once a month because I can’t afford more than that. This would make my dreams come true, to make my own smoothies at home!
