Christina (#815) who said: “Oh, Mel. My blender broke a few weeks ago and I’ve been dying without it while waiting to buy a new one. I would love to win!”

Timely win, Christina! I hope you love the blender!

Because I was so overwhelmed and happy with the response from this giveaway, I sent out a second BlendTec to a lucky winner. MommaD! Congratulations and happy blending, winners!
—————————————————————–
Hi.

My name is Mel. And I have a Blendtec problem.

The issue? I can’t stop using it! Whipped cream? Blendtec. The best Orange Julius known to my lips? Blendtec. The most divine, fat-free smoothie in the world (details below)? Blendtec. Bread crumbs in an instant? Blendtec, baby.

I was gifted a Blendtec for Christmas from my very generous parents. I wasn’t super familiar with the machine (yes, a machine because it is so.much.more than a blender) before a few weeks ago but after experimenting a bit, I have officially decided that the Blendtec ranks right up there with appliances-to-save-in-a-fire (and may even surpass my much-loved Bosch – shhh!). Seriously. This thing is amazing.

Are you familiar? Do you own one? Used one? Drooled over one?

Basically, it’s one blender that can do everything from make smoothies to milkshakes, bread dough to salsa, bread crumbs to salad dressings. It does the work of at least 1,000 other machines. Ok, not really. More like nine other machines. But are you catching my drift?? It’s unreal.

So I’m giving one away. I can’t help it. I need someone else to share in my joy and excitement.

Here’s the details, to enter the giveaway for ONE Blendtec Total Blender, leave a comment on this post telling me anything you want. If you really need direction, leave me the specs on your favorite smoothie combo. I need some ideas since smoothies (among other Blendtec miracles) are becoming a serious part of my life – at least four times a day, on average. I told you I had a problem. I wasn’t kidding.

Winner will be announced Monday Sunday!

Peace out, my friends. I’m off to make the treat I alluded to above: flesh of one mango, drizzle of honey blended with 16 ounces of unsweetened strawberries. The combination morphs into the most unbelievable, tropical fruity sorbet/ice cream you’ve ever had. And we’ve eaten at least six rounds of the magic in the last two weeks. Fruit overload tummy aches have never felt so good.

    Would love to have this sitting on my counter! Would make making those green smoothies so much easier!

  2. Monica says:

    I would love to have a peanut butter milkshake right now!! Another of my favorites is frozen bananas, peanut butter, spinach, cocoa powder, and milk…we call it the green monster :)

  3. Lorelei says:

    This is just what I need for smoothies–whatever the ingredients.

  4. Diane says:

    Hello Melanie. I follow your blog regularly and have tried recipes with much success. I had never heard of Blendtec before, but it sounds wonderful. I am the grandma of 4 wonderful children, one of whom has many allergies. I am concerned about her nutrition and would like to try making smoothies with spinach (hidden, of course). This sounds like the machine that would do that with the most success.

  5. Charlene says:

    here’s hoping for a blendtec to come my way! We love any frozen fruits, with vanilla yogurt and apple juice for our smoothies! yum-o!

  6. Andrew says:

    It’s not that I want a Blendtec. It’s that I NEED a Blendtec.

  7. melissa n. says:

  10. Carmen says:

    I’d love to be able to make smoothies for my 2 kids. They always ask me to buy them smoothies when we are at the mall. It would be great to be able to make them at home!
    Thanks for all your great recipes!

  11. Carlie says:

    Seriously LOVE your blog. It inspires me to cook. Thanks so much. I would love to this machine. My blender from college is on its last leg!!!

  12. Lisa Hansen says:

    How about homemade blizzards. Ice cream, milk (a little bit) and any candy flavor cut up (we like butterfingers and snickers bars). My husband and I went through about 3 blenders making those our first year of marriage… and I may or may not have gained 15 lbs that year, but boy are they good!

  13. Christina W says:

    What perfect timing! I am in the market for a new blender and the blendtec would be at the top of my list if I could save up. :)

  14. sara says:

    My favorite way to get more veggies is by making a fruit smoothie – with pineapple, grapes, banana and spinach! It’s a beautiful bright green color but you don’t “taste” the spinach. I should really start making these again… if only I had a Blendtec….

  15. Susan C. says:

    I would love this blender and how I love a good Orange Julius!

  16. Becki says:

    My husband REALLY wanted to get a blendtec for Christmas. I REALLY wanted him to get us one. I chickend out cause of the price and have regretted it ever since. Please oh please be my lucky day!!!!!

  17. melissa says:

    I’ve been seeing those Green Smoothies all over Pinterest & want to make them.

  18. Jennifer Macker says:

    I would love, love, love a blender that can actually chop ice! I thought I had a nice blender until I went to make a smoothie and almost burned the motor trying to get the ice chunks into small, smooth pieces. I can’t afford a blender that can do this, so I’d LOVE to win this one! Thank you for offering it!

  19. Jessica Allen says:

    SMOOTHIES!!!!!!!! I also love to make blended soups.

  20. Shannon Thevegan says:

    Hello there, Thanks so much for giving away a Blendtec Blender. Right now I am trying to eat healthier and this blender would be perfect for that. My own blender (different brand) broke.

  21. My wife has been drooling over one, for the last two years. She is a very picky eater and she told me that she would eat her vegetables (in a smoothie) if she had Blendtec. I like them to make orange julius – the orange juice + blueberry cranberry juice.

  22. Momma D says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. FedEx arrived today with the Blendtec. I am sooooo excited.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  23. Philip James says:

    Smoothies are the easy way to go with college life. Whipping up some fast and healthy breakfast shakes doesn’t work so well with our cheapy. No power whatsoever. I’m hoping we find something, but it may have to wait until graduation.

  24. Dana says:

    Wow!! I’ve been drooling over one of these since a vegan I know introduced me to it…. It can really blend everything!! Would LOVE to get one!

  25. Dana says:
