Look What You Can Make with a Blendtec – up to $618.95 value! (GIVEAWAY CLOSED!)

If you’ve been reading Whole New Mom for awhile, you know that I LOVE high-powered blenders (like the Vitamix and Blendtec).

Please note – this post contains affiliate links. If you click on them and make a purchase, I might make a commission. Your support is much appreciated and helps keep this free resource up and running.

Today I am going to review the Blendtec Blender and give you all the opportunity to win one of your very own!


I can’t tell you how excited I am to host this giveaway.  You all have been a great group of readers….I’ve loved interacting with you and learning together about healthy living.

And now I get to give a fabulous gift like this to one of you.

I contacted Blendtec awhile ago because I had been hearing good things about them.

Honestly, I have been a Vitamix fan for years and even bought an older model version of the Blendtec at Costco about 2 years ago.

The demonstrator convinced me to try it out.

I tried it but wasn’t that thrilled.

I couldn’t get Homemade Nut or Seed Butter to work, and the sorbet didn’t turn out great either.

And those were two of our main “High Powered Blender” staples in our home at that time.

Fast forward to one day when one of my closest friends told me she’d seen that Blendtec had come out with a new model…

The Designer Series Wild Side Jar with the Twister Jar.

I quickly got on the phone, asked a ton of questions about the new Blendtec–and they offered me one to try.


So, what do I think about the Blendtec?:

First of all, if you think a high-powered blender like the Vitamix or Blendtec isn’t worth it, I must say that I think you are wrong.

Look at all of the things I make in mine.  All. The. Time.

One of the best ways I know to save money in a whole foods kitchen is to Make. It. Yourself.  Everything.  As much as possible.

And one of these blenders is one of the best ways to do that.

Coconut Butter (save over 87%)
– Homemade Sorbets (Basically put any frozen fruit in there and you’ve got sorbet.)
Easiest Coconut Milk (if you have a dairy allergic member in your family you know how much of a savings this is!)
Easiest Almond Milk
Nut or Seed Butter (have you seen the prices of specialty seed and nut butters like macadamia and pumpkin?  Yikes!)
No-Bake Coconut Delights
Savory Hummus (Waaay cheaper than those itty bitty containers in the store.)
Fast and Yummy Bean Dip
Powdered Sugar Substitute

Yes, you spend a little more time in the kitchen, but it’s totally worth it.

To show you just how great this blender works…

Here’s what I made super quick in the new Twister Jar:

In about 15 seconds, I ground up some sweet brown rice flour for baking.  I think it got it ground pretty close to what I would get from my grain mill.  I love using sweet brown rice in gluten-free baking because it adds a little bit of “stickiness” to the flour that you would typically get from the gluten.
If you are on a gluten-free diet, this machine can save a ton over buying pre-ground flours!

In 45 seconds, we had enough fresh sorbet for 2 people–using only bananas!

In 45 seconds, we had super Homemade Almond Butter!

In about 50 seconds, 2 cups of shredded coconut became Homemade Coconut Butter.

Look at all 3 of these together….Rice Flour, Almond Butter and Coconut Butter :-).

And in the Wild Side Jar, we made a whole bunch of Homemade Sorbet (cause we wanted a big batch!)  See the top photo :-).

Smoothies turn out super smooth (like in a smoothie shop) and the container, with its square sides, is simple to clean (a must for me. )

Here is what you can win from Blendtec:

The Designer Series Wildside Blender in your choice of colors:  champagne, black, cream, or red.

with a Twister Jar.

Basically, the Wildside jar is for making larger batches and the Twister Jar is for smaller batches and things that are thicker, like nut butter and “frozen fruit only” sorbets.  The Twister comes with a top that forces the ingredients into the jar’s blade.  You also get a special spatula to help you get every last bit out of your blender.

I’m just thrilled to be able to offer this to you.

Now – I still like the Vitamix. Someday I hope to compare the two for you.  But I don’t have a freebie to giveaway.  I’m trying :-)……

  4. angel spreitzer says:

    I would REALLY like to win this blender!! I’m trying to get the family eating healthier and this would really help me out. Also, my husband would never let me spend that kind of money on a blender which means if I don’t win it or if its not gifted to me, I’ll never get one. =/

  5. I would grind flour, make nut butters and milks. Just so much I could and would do! Thanks!

  6. I’d love to win one and see how it works in comparison to the Vitamix! ;)

    I would love to win so that I could be able to make quick, fresh batches of nut butters, hummus, etc!!!

If making all your own healthy food is EASY, it’s much more likely to happen!

    Thank you!

  17. I’d love a blendtec to help me along on my healing journey. My passion is nutrition and that passion comes from spending my 20’s ill and isolated. I know the blendtec would help me continue to get healthier and more social!

It’s on my wish list at the moment, but if I won this one, I would be that much closer to being able to review in on my blog! Thanks for this great opportunity and all of the amazing recipes and ideas you post! :)

  30. These machines are amazing! I would absolutely LOVE to have one!

  31. Thanks for the honest review. I love the twister jar feature and can’t wait to try some homemade nut butters, pesto n sauces!!!!

  32. I would love to win the Blendtec to make almond butter & all the other homemade “good for you” yummies for my growing family. I love the convenience of the Twister jar & it’s special “spatula”. So handy! Thank you for offer this!

  33. Leslie B. says:

    I would love love one of these. From soups, smoothies, nut butters to sorbets I would make them all. I have cracked both my blender and food processor trying to make them…I need something more. THIS IS IT!

  34. Renae Lee says:

    I have not used any type of high speed blender. I would love to try my own nut/seed butters.

  35. Veronique says:

    I would LOVE one of these. It’s been almost 2 yrs my family and I changed our way of eating and feeling so much better. This is on our wishlist :)

  36. Sure would cut down a lot of time in the kitchen and actually enable the kids and I to make more of our foods home made, such as our nut butters and milk.

  37. I kinda love my Blendtec but I have the older model so I feel limited with what I can make easily. I would love this since I’ve been trying to save up for a Wildside and/or Twister jar to go with it to make more stuff. Thanks for the offer.

  38. Adrienne – I was a bit confused on how to fulfill the share on Facebook. I ended up sharing from your post that came through my feed – I copied what was then on my page from sharing and pasted on the rafflecopter. Hope that works!

  39. I would love to try a blendtec!!!

  40. I’m wanting to make more things from scratch and this would give me the upper hand at doing so. Thank you for this opportunity.

  41. Ooh, I love my BlendTec!!! I would love to get the new model because it looks really awesome!!

  42. I would love to win because I make a lot of smoothies and cashew milk.

  43. I love my BlendTec and have saved so much time using it, but I always want to make double batches for our family instead of just me because I just have a four side jar. Also, the nut butters haven’t worked well as Adrienne mentioned and so I’d love to have the twister too! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  44. I got a used Blendtec for our son (the price was right), but it’s not working right anymore. Would love to have one that works well! We use a Vitamix and love it. I’ve heard that the new Wildside jar is a big improvement over past containers. (Ds prefers our Vitamix, but he is glad to have a Blendtec.)

  45. BlessedCP says:

    I would love to win so we can make healthy goodies!

  46. I would love to be able to make my 5 year old some seed butters since he is allergic to nuts! And, I do miss making my smoothies since I killed my old one…

  47. I have been wanting a high-powered blender for a while now. We are wading in deeper and deeper into “real food” and I know this would help us tremendously!

  48. I would love to win one…I’ll admit, I have one already; but I would give this one to my dear girlfriend who has been battling cancer, so she can make great green smoothies and other healthy foods to keep fighting and stay healthy due to chemo treatments! What a blessing that would be. :)

  49. ra thompson says:

    would love to have a Blendtec blender!! flours/smoothies/butter!!

  50. Krista White says:

    I would LOVE to win a blendtech to make veggie style smoothies for my son who won’t eat anything if it’s not PB&J. I also had a delicious veggie sorbet at a demo once and it was SO good!

  51. Thank you for the opportunity to win a Blendtec! The twister jar will get a lot of use here.

  52. rebecca navarro says:

    I would love to win this blender so I could try out your yummy recipes. Right now I have a cheap blender that has a hard time even with frozen fruit.

  53. Cindy Green says:

    I need one! I need one! I need one!

  54. coconut butter for sure and in the summer fresh fruit frozen yummies

  55. Alberta Willers says:

    I would love to win one of these. My husband has been doing a lot of natural things for his prostate cancer and one of these would be an excellent product to use to make natural butters, etc. We know friends who have a Vitamix and they use it for their health. this would be excellent. Hope to win it.

  56. I have been dying to buy one of these!!! I will use it for everything from green smoothies to making my own nut butters, hummus, etc etc!! You are my inspiration for making whole foods affordable!!

  57. I would love to win one of these to make my own flour!!

    I’ve been wanting something like this for a while now! Thanks for the great opportunity!

  60. I would love to win the Blendtec! My husband and I have adopted the paleo/clean eating lifestyle and are trying to raise our son to eat healthy and understand why. I have discovered that many of the products we use tend to be expensive. It would be great to have the blendtec to make our own flours, butters, ect.

  61. Jacqueline says:

    We have a very old blender (it was originally my husband’s parents from BEFORE he moved out!). And while it’s still kicking and makes great smoothies, I would LOVE a blender that could do nut butters and other more intense items. Here’s hoping!

  62. This looks excellent!

  63. Oh my heaven’s I would love one of these!

  64. I would love to win this. I am getting ready to buy a blendtec….just might wait and see if I win!

  65. I make almond butter, almond milk, and plenty more, but my blender is not nearly as good. I would love a Blendtec!

  66. We’ve added raw smoothies made with a 16+ year old kitchen blender, so I’d sure love something with a bit more power. I have seen the blentec and would love one! thanks! Jessica

  67. Sarah in CA says:

    Oh Wow! I have never actually seen a high powered blender. this looks amazing. I would love to win this. The idea of not having to drive 100 miles round trip to buy specialty nutbutters or coconut anything! in just to much to hope for.

  68. Been on my wish list for a while now, but did not know that you could grind grains, what a bonus, thanks for the chance to win!

  69. I would love to win this, my old blender burnt out recently and I need a good one that’ll last :)

  70. I would love to use this to grind “flour” (grain-free) and make nut butters!

  71. Our blender died months ago and I haven’t been able to replace it yet. It’s killing me! I’d love to win this!

  72. What an awesome opportunity! I’d lOVE to have a Blendtec!!!

  73. Would LOVE to win! Would love to make nut butters amongst many other yummy things!

  74. This would be a great tool on my trip to wellness

  75. I LOVE Blendtec’s blenders! Had one before and it was my favorite kitchen tool, wouldn’t be able to eat half the things I did without one. Thanks for this offer! Not sure I was added to your blog email’s as I tried but can’t remember my login password :S

  76. I have wanted one of these for a long time but can’t spend the money on one.

  77. Christina E. says:

    I would love to win one of these because my budget doesn’t allow for me to buy nut butters and coconut butter. I would use it all the time!

  78. My husband and I make protein smoothies for breakfast every morning but that is the extent that our blender will do. I’d love to incorporate better foods beyond just breakfast!

  79. Hillary Mahon says:

    I would love to win this BlendTec, we have been trying to make smoothies with our regular blender but it isn’t going too well. My son has autism and with that is a very picky eater, but he will eat any fruit or veggie that is blended, as long as I include a banana! :)

  80. My Kitchenaid blender is heavily used (and used, and used) and is on it’s last leg. I’ve been waiting for a Blendtec, and it’s been on every gift list… Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s day (many times over!)- just hasn’t happened yet! My hubby and I have our 18 year anniversary in just a couple of days and maybe – just maybe – I’ll win one :)

  81. I have always wanted a Blendtec. This would be completely awesome to win. I’d love to try making my own nut butters!

  82. My current blender is starting to give signs of burnout…maybe from making that last batch of food for my corals (really!). So if I won, that would be extremely cool – but overall this blender just looks really neat.

    And thanks for the great website – many great ideas! Thanks!

  83. Michele Menefee says:

    Would love to win this. We are starting to eat healthy and prepare our own foods. This would help a lot.

  84. Kim Dougherty says:

    Oh my! What a fantastic giveaway! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and information…..and now a giveaway!!! All of us loyal readers are so very spoiled! ;)

  85. Heather H says:

    Oh, the yummy-ness I could create – hummus, guacamole, smoothies, almond butter, almond/coconut flour,…. Mmmmmm! Grain mills are expensive too considering its just one function they perform; at least this has potential to multi-function. Thanks for offering a great giveaway! :)

  86. Darla Shannon says:

    I would like to win this, it would really help making coconut milk.

  87. Always wanted one for making different things with coconut, frozen treats, grinding flours, smoothies, etc. The demos on YouTube are interesting when they show everything they can blend with the blendtec. “Will it Blend?”

  88. I would LOVE one of these for the nut butter and sorbet alone, not to mention all the other goodies.

  89. I would love to win this blender, so my husband and I can eat healthier! We are grandparents now, and need to stay as young and fit as possible to keep up with grandkids!

  90. Amazing! Can’t wait to win it!

  91. I so want a high powered blender! Just can’t spend the money for one, sure hope I win :)

  92. wow! what a machine! I would love to win; I have a cheapy blender which is still holding out but would love to put something like this one in its place for my smoothies and veggies and stuff.

  93. I’m so excited at this possibility! I have been wanting a high powered blender, and haven’t been able to save up enough to afford it yet. WOOHOO!

  94. Jill McCracken says:

    I’d love to win a Blendtec to make nut and seed butters. That Almond butter looks great!

  95. miriam t. says:

    Omg winning would be AWESOME! My sad little hamiltion beach is about to to kick the bucket and I have no way of affording an expensive blender. Thanks for the opportunity!

  96. Oh, I would love to win this blender11111

  97. Oh, how lovely! I sure could use this. thanks for offering the contest!

  98. I would love a chance at a Bendtec…my blender just gave out, so this would be perfect timing!

  99. Wow the Blendec presentation looks awesome, almond butter, I haven’t tried that yet. I have an old conventional Oyester blender and even for smoothies it is not perfect, I read quite so often about other fast blenders but don’t have the courage to spend so much. I like the idea that it has actually 2 jars for smaller portions. Yes, I’d love to win a Blendec Blender and test it well, I’d do coconut milk more often, I bet it would be superfast.

  100. I can never really figure out these Rafflecopter widget entries. Every time I go to leave a message as I’m entering, it won’t allow me to (?) but it shows in a faded gray that I have been entered (says “done” and there is a check mark). Anyway, I do hope I am actually entered. It would be awesome to win such an extraordinary appliance. I have a Vitamix that I use MULTIPLE times a day but I wouldn’t mind replacing with the Blentec. I’ve heard SO many great things about it that I wouldn’t have any qualms about switching over. THEN I could gift my parents with my Vitamix. I would love that! :) Thank you for the opportunity for that chance.

    • I think it worked. I can’t figure the best way to do giveaways. If you click on the “enter” you did it as long as you did what the widget said to do….b/c I do verify that at the end :).

  101. Would LOVE one of these! I would make nut butters, smoothies, hummus, make my apple and peach butters smooth, etc!

  102. Wow, what a fantastic giveaway! I would love to win this, especially since our blender and food processor decided to die at the same time! Thank you for all of your wonderful and delicious recipes…my family loves them :)

  103. Ooh, I would love to win this! I’ve wanted a Blendtec or Vitamix for so long! Thanks for the giveaway!

  104. Just bought a nutribullet – love it but would like a full-service big blender.

  105. Jessica V. says:

    What an exciting giveaway! I’ve been wanting one of these for so long!

  106. I really, really need something that works! We currently have a Ninja, but it just doesn’t cut it. Not enough power!

  107. I am going to have to look further into the Blendtec blenders. That coconut butter looks amazing!!

  108. Debye Thorne says:

    Ooooooh!!! I’d love to win a Blendtec so I can better utilize my food purchases. Going with real foods and raising my two year old Granddaughter can be challenging when making meal choices. Economics is a concern and any means of saving money is important! Thanks!

  109. Great giveaway! We’ve seen demonstrations of these and have friends with Vitamixes. I admit, I’m a bit envious – our piddly little blender couldn’t hold a candle to those machines!

  110. Crystal Webb says:

    I would like to win this because my son is allergic to both milk and corn products. We are having to buy a lot of alternatives, that are pricey, and make a lot from scratch. This would help us out a ton! We could make the rice/coconut milk from scratch which would save us lots of cash, and help make the nut butters, etc. we could save lots and eat a lot healthier as a family.

  111. I would love one of these awesome blenders to make coconut butter, almond milk, almond butter, and more! Thanks!

  112. Oh my this is an amazing giveaway! Thank you! I have been pining for a blendtec for a while now. My regular blender is now broken. :( We usually make smoothies everyday plus I would love to make my own nut flours and butters — not to mention the coconut possibilities! I am a person you can buy an appliance for and I would be very excited about it! ;)

  113. Would love to win it for my son who just graduated chef school! Having a blender like this in the house is the best!

  114. I would like to win a Blendtec because I am really trying to help my family eat healthier, and I think Blendtec would go a long ways toward helping me to achieve that goal.

  115. I’ve been wanting one of these for so long. We got a Ninja instead about a year ago but I still really want a Blendtec or Vitamix. My husband just won’t let me spend the money on one right now. :(

  116. I would love to win this blender, so that I could grind my own peanut butter and make banana ice cream

  117. Getting this blender would speed up my time in the kitchen and there are so many things that need to be made with a powerful blender!

  118. Why would I want to win??? WHY WOULDN’T I????? A high powered blender is on my wish list… and will have to stay there until we are out of debt. Until then, I’ll keep dreaming and keep working to be debt free!

  119. Rebecca P says:

  146. Kathy Fish says:

    I have always wanted a Blendtec. I would make so many things but my daily green smoothie would be so much more delishous with a really good blender. I want to make almond and coconut milk and I could go on and on about what yummy things I would make!

  147. I would love to make homemade almond butter and flours as well. This looks fantastic!

  148. I would love the opportunity to win this Blendtec. Thanks!!!

  149. I feel like I a missing out on a whole lot of healthy recipes that I could be preparing for my family. So many call for the use of a high powered blender, but I haven’t been able fit it in our immediate budget. I know it will save money in the long run, but you have to have the money to invest.

  150. I would love to try a blender such as this one!! Looks great! Thanks for your informative website!

  151. Would love to make almond butter, coconut butter, grind GF flours…everything you did! We are GF and one is DF and her “special stuff” is expensive! Well all our special stuff. Thanks for the chance! Looks awesome.

  152. I would love to win this. Oh my gosh I would use it for so many things.

  153. I would love to win this. I really need the power to be able to make more foods like nut butters, coconut butter, flour, smoothes, green juice, etc.

  154. I have always wanted one of these. I would love to make hummus and sorbet especially.

  155. Smoothies and sorbet – this looks like an amazing kitchen tool.

  156. I’d love to make some smoothies and some soup!

  157. Laura Peterson says:

    This would be a great addition to my life! I only use nut flours and it would be incredible to be able to make my own!!!

  158. I’d love to make non-chunky smoothies that my kids will actually drink! My current blender leaves chunks behind. If also love to make nut butters and soups!

  159. My hubby and I just started a plant-based diet and oh how this would be the perfect thing for us in making juices, homemade dishes, etc. Looks wonderful!

  160. Hayley Richardson says:

    A great product to assist in a better healthy lifestyle and it can be done with such ease. Elegant simplicity.

  161. you are the one who got me hooked on making things myself! First I purchased a dehydrator and am delighted with it, then we got a vitamin and use it everyday! I would love to see what this new blendtec model could do better, especially nut butters and sorbets. The vitamin is so hard to get everything out of the bottom. Thanks for organizing this giveaway! How exciting!

  162. I was just talking with a friend today about blenders! We can’t afford the high quality ones just now, and I’m about to bend and just buy a cheap old thing! This is great timing! Whether or not I win, this post was encouraging to try and strive for a good quality blender!

  163. Thanks for sharing this opportunity. You always seem to be a step or two ahead of my family :) I greatly appreciate all your efforts and that you take the time to share them with us. Meeting the needs of different food intolerances, health issues, etc. can be quite challenging. Having a Blendtec would certainly go a long way to help in those areas. I could use it to make many of the things you’ve shared on your blog :-) Keep up the great work!

  164. ann casey says:

    Awesome give-away!

  165. I am anxious to try making my own coconut milk!

  166. Oh wow, I would love to try one of these in champagne. I love to make smoothies, hummus and sorbet and this would work so much better then my $2 yard sale blender! :-)

  167. Holy Moly! What a giveaway!!
    I’d make so many flours and butters, it’s not even funny. ;)

  168. I have heard nothing but great things about these, and I have picky kids who reject vegetables on sight alone, but love sorbet!

  169. This is fabulous! I’ve always wanted a Blendtec!

  170. Yeehaw!! What an awesome piece of kitchenry :)

  171. Oops, you probably guessed that I meant to say vitamix, not vitamin in my comment above…that silly auto spell feature!

  172. I have seen the blendtec in action and am quite impressed. Like you I have been a vitamix fan for years and would really like to have a blendtec now too. The potential is amazing.

  173. Almond butter, almond butter, almond butter…and sorbet, and soups, and gluten-free flours, and, oh so many things. Would love to have one of these, but it will probably never find its way into the budget.

  174. Thanks for all your tips ! :-)

  175. This prize would simply be awesome…I would love it to make the almond and coconut butter and numerous things…Thanks!

  176. Thank you soo much for this awesome opportunity! Thanks for making this a possibility!

  177. I’ve always wanted one. I love the product and their commercials. Lol

  178. I’ve had so many cheap blenders, I would love a real nice one like this.

  179. I would DIE for this amazing blender! =)

  180. Sarah Mahon says:

    I have been eyeing a Blentec for a while, but I was wondering how it compared to the Vitamix – now I know!!! I have used my Ninja to DEATH, and it is great, but it is not close to being a high powered processor. I have a dietarily restricted household, and making your own food is the only way to go oftentimes. Love your blog!

  181. Natalie S says:

    I would love a Blendtec. It would make my life of having to make almost everything from scratch so much easier. My two little ones would love the fresh (frozen fruit) sorbet!

  182. I don’t have a blender. Why not get an awesome one like this! :)

  183. Robert Hathaway says:

    Would love to start making my own nut butter with this blender. Mine would blow up.

  184. Oh my goodness, this would be great! I have been wanting to make my own nut/seed butters and other concoctions, but our current blender just doesn’t cut it for those jobs. Thank you for the great giveaway and all your wonderful postings!

  185. I would LOVE a Blendtec! I use a blender daily an this would be a big help in making more than what my blender can handle now.

  186. I would love a high power blender but can’t afford one.

  187. I need this blender so bad! All I have is a small knock-off magic bullet style blender and I really want to get into making homemade nut butters and other whole food items. I also make a lot of smoothies and protein shakes, and my little blender is the bare minimum of adequate.

  188. jennifer mc says:

    after reading your blog, i would love to try so many of the things you write about with the blendtec!

  189. jessica rasmussen says:

    WOuld like to get into grinding grain, making coconut butter, and experiment with nuts and would love to win to try these instead of trying with my 1970’s blender.

  190. I have always wanted one of these types of blenders! I would so love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!

  191. I’ve been debating which ‘blender’ to get after mine broke. I would love to win this since I’ve read your review ….
    If I don’t win, I’ll be saving my money for this!
    Thank you for your posts!

  192. I would love to win this! I bought a Kitchen Champ machine probably close to 20 years ago. I have used it so much over that time, but the gears on the blender have stripped out and that component is no longer usable. I really miss the high powered blending it did. Thanks for this opportunity!

  193. ann casey says:

    I forgot to put what I would use it for – everything – daily smoothies, mixing, chopping… would make the kitchen experience more fun :)

  194. That small jar with the special top for keeping things in the blades looks great!

  195. Healthier, less expensive, less work…when you’re dealing with special diets, that sounds wonderful!

  196. Kristy G. says:

    Almond butter!

  197. I’ve been wanting to try one for a while, but the cost is holding me back. Great giveaway!

  198. I would absolutely love to win this blendtec mixer. My older brother was in a very bad car accident a little over a year ago and now suffers from a tbi, he its a completely different person and can not do anything on his own, our mother its a full time care giver (my husband, sister, and I help as well) My mother is the one who introduced me to this blog, she has been into natural living for some time. She has my brother weaned off of most of his ‘medication’ it was a lot and we believed doing much more harm than good, she has him on a paelo diet, she has to blend all of his did (he gets everything through a stomach tube). The blender we use is a ninja and if you know anything about those then you are aware that they are shall we say ‘not as advertised’ but its what we could afford. Along with that I have a 5 month old daughter 1 of 3 children :), she is allergic to dairy protein and I exclusively breastfeed. I have been trying to make my own dairy free butters and things and this mixer would help greatly with that. I have a couple more reasons but this comment is turning into a blog entry itself so I think I’ll end it here. :) I do hope very much that I win.

  199. Want want want! Bordering on coveting….but it’s just so cool!

  200. Would LOVE to win this…. You had sold me on a Vitamix, if I win… I’d be a happy Mommy! :)

  201. I would love to win the Blendtec! I’m on a limited budget and would love to make my own nut/seed butters and milks without all the additives! I make protein smoothies every morning and my regular blender doesn’t quite get the job done!

  202. Amazing prize! Would love a chance to try out all the things I could make with this blender.

  203. I would love to make almond butter and see how it does with baby food.

  204. I would love to win a Blendtec with the new Twister Jar! We make a lot of smoothies, but would love to make nut butters and grind fresh flour, etc! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  205. alison armstrong says:

    I would LOVE this!

  206. Would love to make some of these awesome recipes for my girls! Wallet doesn’t love the price of these though :o( Awesome giveaway! Good luck to all and congrats in advance to whoever gets this great kitchen appliance!

  207. I would use a Blendtec for grinding flours and making nut butters, smoothies, and ice cream!

  208. I have never used a Vitamix or BlendTec before, and after reading your review think that the benefits outweigh the costs – especially with how much hummus and nut butter I eat ;)

  209. Julie Vance says:

    OMG I want one of these sooo bad! My chef boyfriend’s had his eye on one and since we’ve switched to a more paleo/traditional way of eating we’ve been saving up for it.

  210. Not gonna lie, it would be a dream-come-true to win this. As in, when my husband said we’d get a Blendtec “in my dreams” :) (he didn’t really, but I could tell that was what he thought of my idea!)

  211. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  212. Oh I would love to win this…our blender is on its last leg with all my smoothie makin:)

  213. Great giveaway! Hope I win :)

  214. I am definitely on for this giveaway. Been wanting a really good blender for years :)
    A blender that does what you need done without complaint. Mmmmm…

  215. I would love to win the Blendtec there are so many great recipes I would be inspired to try that my regular old blender just isn’t cut out for.

  216. Yirsi Tavarez says:

    It would be true blessing to have an opportunity to win this AMAZING blender! I have such a passion for holistic health & I strongly have a desire to teach those in my world the true benefits of eating whole foods and this would be great tool to help me do that! God Bless!!!

  217. Margaret Ford says:

    The main use I would have is for green smoothies. Green smoothies have improved my health and my family’s health. This would be a great asset to us!

  218. Oh I see, yes I’d like to win because I want to make our own coconut butter and almond flour and almond butter. We also love smoothies! Plus my blender is a cheapy hunk of junk and I need a new one anyway lol

  219. I want to win because I love making smoothies

  220. Barbara19 says:

    I didn’t know about grinding the rice flour – one more reason to “need” one. I made hummus today in a food processor and it took way longer than it would have in the Blendtec.

  221. Lori Davis says:

    We would use this every.single.day. for my family’s health!

  222. I would love to win! Just begging the hubby for one of these the other day!

  223. I would use it for everything! I make smoothies every morning, I make gravy, I make my “creamy” soups, I make nut butters, just everything! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  224. I would love a Blendtec, I’ve been trying to save up for 2 years for one and it always seems the furnace needs repair or the cellphone that landed on the dashboard bounced and cracked the windshield. And my current blender can not get the job done.

  225. I really would like to see if it works better than the vitamix. I have pushed my vitamix past it’s limits. Big family. So may be I expect too much from it ?

  226. I’d love to win this! I want to learn how to make my own peanut butter and control the sugar for my diabetic husband!

  227. Cheeryshirley says:

    I have always wanted to see a Blendtec…only heard of them a few times online. As vegans, we NEED a strong powered blended. Would love to make our own coconut butter, etc without burning out the motor! Please enter me! Thanks, Cheeryshirley

  228. I have one of those kids who won’t eat. When he was little everyone told me he wouldn’t starve himself but he kept dropping weight until he was under the 5th percentile. I’m now suspecting he has a partly restricted airway and it has caused some of his aversion to texture for good reason. We are working to figure out the best solution for him but one of the ways I keep up his weight and ensure he has a good variety of foods in his diet is to make lots of smoothies and pureed soups. So far all I could afford is a standard blender and it limits me a lot because so many things don’t get smooth enough for him. A blendtec could change all that!

  229. Looks like a wonderful blender. I’d like to make my own flours using this blender and also try some nut butters!! :) Great giveaway!! Thanks for the opportunity and all your helpful posts as well!

  230. I was wondering….do you know if the Twister jar is essential to making all the things you make (like nut butters, etc.), or can you just use the regular jar that comes with the Designer Series Wild Side to make everything?

    • I had a hard time w/ the Twister jar b/c there is nothing to drive the food down into the blades. That’s part of why I didn’t like the Blendtec originally. I am still a Vitamix fan—I’ll hopefully do a comparison at some point :).

  231. Katie Updike says:

    It would be fantastic to win this! My other blender is wearing out. I would make a lot of the same things you do – almond butter, coconut butter, and also grind grains.

  232. I would like to win the blender because making almond butter takes so long in my food processor. It would make things so much more efficient in my kitchen :-)

  233. I would love to win this! It would be so helpful with holding to a budget while eating real, nutritious food. Plus, I would be thrilled if I could make my own nut butters, almond meal, and sorbets so quickly.

  234. Oh! I would just love this blender. I have been using a regular blender for years and although it does the trick I can only imagine the things I could whip up for my family if I had one of these. Sigh!

  235. We are a GAPS family. I could make SO many things with this!! Thank you for the opportunity!


  236. Wow, would this makes creative healthy foods easier and more fun!

  237. I would love to make my own nut butters but cannot with my current cheapo blender.

  238. I would love a blendtech to help my family on our ever improving journey to healthy eat I ng

  239. On the advice of a friend I got one of the older Blendtec models awhile back. I have used it so much that I wore it out. It has been very hard not having it around so I hope to win.

  240. I would use it for smoothies, making baby food, and almond milk. Our diets just changed and I’m now having to eat a lot of specialty foods that are getting to expensive to buy! This would be a great help.

  241. I have wanted one of these for a LONG time…..peanut butter, smoothies, baby food, lots of things!

  242. Teresa W. says:

    The blender that I have had for over a decade is about to die. I have a son with multiple food intolerances and a husband with auto-immune issues, so I really want to be able to feed them the highest quality food possible. What could be better than making it myself?

  243. I would love to be able to compare it to my older Vitamix! Using the clear container to make sorbets would be so much easier than the metal container.

  244. Leslie Carroll says:

    I have been borrowing one of the regular blendtecs and love it!

  245. I’d love to win a Blendtec because our current KitchenAid blender just doesn’t cut it with any mixtures that are thick or even semi-thick. Smoothies are so hard to make with it and basically end up like thinner milkshakes, because it can’t handle adding any more ice to blend. Ugh.

  246. I would love to win the Blendtec and give it to my Son and future Daughter-in-law for their wedding gift as He is starting to get into eating healthier!!!

  247. Oh my goodness!!! I would soooo love this! My son has multiple food allergies so everything is made from scratch as much as possible. There are many things I could make with this that my $30 blender won’t do. I am holding my breath…thank you for the chance to win.

  248. I have been considering buying a blender to help me cope with my sons special restricted diet. Have to make everything from scratch so this would be great! Thanks.

  249. yeah yeah yeah. i want red.

  250. This is an awesome opportunity to get an amazing piece of equipment. Thanks Adrienne!

  251. Melissa Snow says:

    I would use it for all of the above! High powered blenders are awesome!

  252. I appreciate all the investigative work you to do to help make my family’s life healthier as well as those of all of your readers. This is just another great way you are adding to a reader’s ability to continue on the healthier lifestyle path. So thanks again for everything and the awesome giveaway!

  253. I would love to win a blendtec because I am expecting my third baby in May..and being a one income house hold things this expensive aren’t alway feasible.. :) I would love to start doing whole foods home made in the household while saving time :)!!

  254. My blender is a wuss, so I could really use this way cool Blendtec to make coconut butter and almond butter and all sorts of goodies that my blender won’t even consider doing. Thanks for the opportunity!!

  255. Debby Burke says:

    A high powered blender? Why would I want that? Maybe a high powered kitchen toy will entice my husband to help with food preparation! I have multiple food allergies and Celiac so I do alot of preparing!

  256. I would love to make some healthy smoothies for my family!

  257. What a sweeeet giveaway! I would love one of these to make just about everything you mentioned and learn to make more… plus smoothies, juice and more! I’ve never had a ‘real’ blender before… I just bought my first Kitchen Aid this past year and loooove it more than I ever thought. I think a Blendtec would put me in kitchen heaven!

  258. My son has severe allergies. So, we try to make everything from scratch, at home. This would help so much!!

  259. molli mcandrews glowacki says:

    I would love to win this for our family; It would help me prepare fresh, allergen free foods for us– and would be alot of fun too! Thanks for the chance!

  260. obearlady says:

    nice give a way but I DON’T FACE BOOK TY

  261. I would love to win this Blendtec so that I could make my own nut butters, smoothies, grind my own flour. My sister even grinds meat in hers!

  262. Jessica Colvin says:

    This is an amazing giveaway. This would be so helpful for us since I currently do everything by hand, and this would open up so many new opportunities for new foods!

  263. This is a great giveaway!!!

  264. A Blendtec would be great to make smoothies and puree soup which we do several times a week. Homeade nut butters would be great too!

  265. THis would be awesome. I’m so inspired by all of your recipes!! Recently started making my own almond butter and would love to do some coconut stuff! Thanks for all you do!

  266. I would love to make nut butter and grind flours, plus I could easily sneak green things into my kids smoothies.

  267. Living with a muscle disease I find cooking a challenge so needing all the help I get from quality appliances I can continue pursuing a better quality of cooking experience with a Blendtex is another excellent helper in my quest to cook and live a better and more healthful life style. Thankyou for this great chance.

  268. I have always heard such great things about Blentec and their competetor, but I can’t afford one. I would love to be able to reduce my costs in the kitchen while maintaining a whole food/real food diet and I know that owning a blender like this will be the breakthru I need! Thank you for thie give away!

  269. I use my blender to make homemade coconut milk, and I need to run out so long so often, that I fear it will soon break. With a blendtec, I wouldn’t worry, and I’d branch out into other things like nut butters as well.

  270. Jessica T says:

    I’d use it for tons of stuff! I love blenders, but the one I have is not too strong so I don’t use it that much.

  271. I love all the proof you provided as to why this blender is so worth it. We don’t have even a simple blender right now so the ideas you gave have me a bit envious! I have a son with a nut allergy which makes a lot of pre-packaged foods risky, so a blender with this kind of power would make it so much easier for our family to incorporate healthful foods by processing them on our own without the contamination that’s likely in processing plants. Thank you for the opportunity to enter!

  272. lusting after that twister jar!!

  273. Wow what a prize and it comes in red! My processor will not make nut butters or gluten free flours… And imagine the convenience of just making flour when you need it! Love to win this awesome machine.

  274. This giveaway could not have come at a better time! I have been doing my homework to compare the pros and cons of Blendtec, VitaMix and Ninjas. I am thoroughly convinced that Blendtec’s are the way to go! Looks like you DEFINITELY get what you pay for!

  275. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I’ve wanted a Blendtec for quite a while. First thing I would make is almond butter!

  276. With recent health issues in our family, I am trying to make healthier {from scratch} meals. This would help me a lot! Making my own butters, grinding grains…..wow…..the possibilities are endless and brings tears to my eyes. ; )

    Thanks for the opportunity to win one! Good luck to ALL the entrants!

  277. I would love the twister jar! That looks amazing

  278. Wow! That looks amazing! I haven’t tried making my own nut butters yet, but I will now! Awesome giveaway!

  279. Chelsea B says:

    There are so many reasons I’d love to have one, soup, gluten-free flours and cooking, nut butters, smoothies, juicing….

  280. I would love one if these! I have been eyeing one for a while but my husband thinks its too much for jut a blender. If he only knew what it could do!

  281. I have longed for one of these for so long. I have boys with allergies and boy would this make life easier.

  282. I desperately need a Blendtec so I can prepare all of your wonderful recipes. Thank you for the chance to win this amazing giveaway:)

  283. All that food looks A-MAZ-ing!!! I am currently using a sad, but still trucking blender that is on the last leg of blending days, so I’d love to win this amazing blender that works and works well!

  284. Christine says:

    This looks like a great machine!

  285. Im really excited to be entered this would make a great engagement gift to me and my fiance’!! Thanks for the opportunity!! :)

  286. I would love this Blendtec to make nut milks (I love cashew milk and cashew cream) and nut butters. Also would love to make soups and homemade dressings. Yummy :)

  287. I would love to be able to make my own almond butter. It’s so expensive in the store, so it’s rare that we buy any. Both my husband and son are allergic to peanuts, so almond butter iti is for now.

  288. Jill Buer says:

    I would love to win a Blendtec to make all of that food from scratch!

  289. Adrienne,
    So glad that I found you last summer! Appreciated the personal time that you’ve taken to talk to me about essential oils (working on my order now:)and personal care products. With 10 children still left at home and being semi-health, conscience (semi, cause hubby/kids still like lots of “junk” food:)a power blender would be handy to introduce new and HEALTHY options for my family!! Thanks for all you do!

  290. What a wonderful place you have here that I stumbled across today! I love the name of your blog too … a Whole New Mom… seems to correlate and be so relevant to my own life in so many ways. How wonderful as well to see that you have an added bonus that you have a Blendtec giveaway contest!! Whomever receives this beauty will be so thankful and incredibly fortunate. May blessings and favor rain upon you and your family’s life today.

  291. Paula Powell says:

    i would make nut butters, milks, smoothies and hummus!

  292. Kathryn Arnold says:

    I practically live on green smoothies…they’re the most important item in my diet and without them I get sick quickly. The magnesium? I’m dirt poor and currently using a worn out juicer and a cheap blender to make smoothies that could more correctly be called slurries. If you’re familiar with green smoothies I don’t have to tell you how unappetizing this is. I rent a room and have to get time to do my smoothies in a shared kitchen…the way I have to do it is very time consuming. I would absolutely love to have a this blender!

  293. Cindy Johnson says:


    I enjoy the time and energy you put into your posts. Thanks so much!

    And I would love to have a Blendtec to use for my family of six! Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Thanks! Sometimes a little too much time….Like that cool photo in the middle of my post—there was a little green fleck on the almond butter so I had to do it all over again. Perfectionistic. Sigh.

  294. Alicia Sperry says:

    Could save so much money if I had one of these!!

  295. A fabulous blender equals a fabulous healthy me.

  296. The only way I could ever afford this OR a Vitamix is via a giveaway :(. Would love to win so I can help my mom improve her health via all of the good nutrition that comes from using whole foods and eating a more ‘raw’ diet.

  297. I want to make green smoothies!!

  298. Nicholle C. says:

    I NEED to win this blender – please don’t make me keep using my crappy Magic Bullet!!

  299. I would love to be able to make nut butter!

  300. We use all of the things that you made in the Blendtec! We also make smoothies daily! Oh, how awesome it would be to be able to cut costs and make all this at home!

  301. Shay Logan says:

    I hope to win this because it will help me on my path to getting my family eating better. Sure, I have a blender, but it just doesn’t do what I want it to! For example, I made smoothies with it and put kale and spinach among other things in the mix. I blended and pureed and mixed for a while and it just didn’t break up the ingredients like I wanted. Thank you for another great giveaway!

  302. I would really like having a wonderful blender like the Blendtec. There are so many ways that I would use it in my kitchen. Thanks for your giveaway and your great site.

  303. I would LOVE to win a REAL blender!!!

  304. I would love to win this blender! Mine broke and I have been using my moms for our morning smoothies.

  305. Why WOULDN’T I want a Blendtech blender???? :)

  306. I’d love to have one of these in my kitchen to make all of those wonderful items.

  307. Our Vitamix is getting old and acting up. We use it all the time, and being missionaries (from Guatemala) we can’t afford to replace it… so that’s why we are entering. =]

  308. A Blendtec would be amazing to make hummus and nut butters (which I love!!) but more importantly, I would use it to make coconut milk! It’s my favorite beverage in the world. I would definitely use it for soups also; chicken soup all the time is pretty stale! Homemade tomato soup on the other hand would be delicious =D
    Goodness, I can’t keep going on about all the ways I’d use this. Pesto would be a snap!

  309. LeAnn Weaver says:

    I really really want to make nut butters and nut milks – it will save me tons!
    thanks for running this contest!

  310. Carol Clarke says:

    I’ve seen demos at Costco a couple of times. I’d love to win it for healthy smoothies, nut butters & so much more!!

  321. Deborah Wagner says:

    I would love to have one I have never owned one. It makes everything look so easy.

  322. Winning one of these workhorse machines would be a dream come true! I don’t know how I manage to live without one, but perhaps after your drawing I won’t have to wonder anymore! Thank you for the giveaway and for a great blog too!!

  323. I forgot to mention, I’m already a subscriber and have been for quite a while :)

  324. As a full time working single mom with a daughter with multiple food allergies this would be a blessing for US! I would make large batches aof tons of things and store for busy time. Thanks for hosting the give away.

  332. What a great giveaway, I’ve really wanted to see if one could make my kale really smooth and drinkable :)

  333. Nut butters and soups, here I come! I have been using my workhorse food processor for these, but a BlendTec would definitely ease the prep and the results.

  334. I would love a blendtec!!! I’ve been wanting one.

  335. I use a combination of my (old, low-powered) blender and/or my food processor to make all my milks, butters, etc. Having one kitchen tool that could do it all — quickly and well — would be fabulous!

  336. This is a fabulous giveaway. Thanks! :)

  337. I would so love to win this Blendtec. I have multiple food allergies and have to make most everything myself to avoid reactions. I’ve never seen a Blendtec Demo but I’ve heard great things about them. BTW…..love your Blog

  342. i’d LOVE one of these for making nut butters! My ninja can only handle peanuts!

  343. I would use it to grind gluten free flours like brown rice flour. And more, of course, but this one excites me. What a $ saver!

  344. To blend items so smooth and quickly would be so awesome to have.

  345. Wow, looks like an amazing appliance! I could do a lot in the kitchen with five hungry boys to feed. Thanks for the chance!

  346. because I live in Zambia and there are TONS of things I can’t buy like almond butter, good coconut milk, fresh flour, etc. I could make smoothies, coconut cream, nut butters… oh I would be so happy!!!!!

  356. What an awesome blender!! Would LOVE to have one of these to make nut butters, smoothies, and my own flours :) Thank you so much!!

  357. Im convinced i want one!

  358. I have been using an old blender from when I was first married with no cover for the longest time. I have a family member with multiple allergies and would love to be able to save some money by not having to buy specialty items.

  359. This is great! I always stayed away from looking into high powered blenders because I didn’t want o pay for one and then just yesterday I was at work and decided to give my boss’ blendtec a try with some lemon, (whole, peeled), berries and greens, oh and stevia and the “juice” it made was amazing- no gross pulp, it was almost as if I had juiced all those things but none of the hassle of juicing. I was just telling my mom this morning that I wanted a Blendtec and then I see this giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  360. I have wanted a Vitamix type blender for over a year. I would love to make nut butters and banana and fruit ice creams.

  361. This would be awesome to win! I have heard they are amazing! Great giveaway!

  362. Ive been feeding my family of 9 from scratch for 7 months. A blendtec would mak my life SO MUCH EASIER! Thanks for the chance to win one!!

    *Drool* I would love to win this blender!

  364. I really really really want a BlendTec to make coconut butter!

  365. I would love to have a high powered blender like this! I use my food processor and magic bullet daily and it would save me so much time and effort to have a machine that did it all!!

  366. I’ve been wanting one of these for the longest time. My poor old blender is the same one I got over 20 years ago as a wedding present and it just can’t keep up with all I need it to do!

  367. I would love to have the BlendTec! My son has a life threatening allergy to peanuts, almonds and cashews and sun butter is so expensive! When he’s been exposed to other allergens he gets hypersensitive to wheat, dairy and other food products so I also use gluten-free flours, non-dairy milks, egg replacers and the like. It’s killing my grocery budget! This would save me so much money and help our son to have a greater variety of foods since I could make them myself. Thanks for such a wonderful opportunity!

  368. just had a baby and finally going back to being raw! (no more cravings!) I love making raw cakes and sweets and this is perfect for my creations

  369. Woo hoo!!!!!!!!! =D

  370. Oh, I forgot to say that I subscribe by email. Love the blog!!!

  371. Karen Caruthers says:

  373. WOW! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this, thanks for the giveaway opportunity!!!

  374. Charlotte says:

    I have tried to make nut butters in my thirty year old VitaMixer, and it didn’t work out. I would love to win a new modern high speed blender.

  375. Kristen T. says:

    In November of last year I decided that I would make more of a conscious effort to make more natural products at home instead of buying ready made products at the store. One of the things I discovered was that, I needed a more powerful and versatile blender, unlike the one I currently have. I think this blender would defiantly be beneficial to me as I work on creating a processed food free life style for me and my family.

  376. Would love to win to be able to make my own nut and seed flours and butters!

  377. ChristineW says:

    We have just started making our own nut milks/butters. I would luv one of these machines!!

  378. What a great giveaway! Thank you, Regina

  379. I really want to win this! This morning I was thinking of all the things you are able to blend up as my old machine struggled to mix a little smoothie! It really IS on its last leg I am afraid…the smell of overheating parts is a good sign! Thanks for the review. It will be handy even if I don’t win!

  380. I have 3 young children 6 and under. my husband ,myself, and at least two of the children have extreme yeast sensitivty.. i use sensitivity because most of my marriahe we have had strict diets and lots of cleansing.. we are on the mend but i must make next to everything myself which i enjoy but with homeschooling, diapers,garden, cooking, and research i know you totally understand what a time saver a high powered blender would be.. we have wanted one but could never find the funds.. this would be highly appreciated win.. please excuse any misspellings my phone is acting up.. lol

  381. I would love to win a Blendtec because I need a blender. :)

  383. I would love to win a Blendtec!

  385. I am anxious to start my family living a more whole foods lifestyle. I am grateful for blogs like this to inspire and motivate me! Thanks for the opportunity to win

  386. Charlotte Moore says:

    I would love to have the new twister jar. It os no fun trying to get stuff from a blender jar sometimes.

  387. The twister jar sounds fabulous! I’ve seen both blenders in action and really like the Blendtec.

  388. Why not? It would be a great addition to any kitchen!

  389. Christine Pena-Oquist says:

    I love my Vitamix. At first high-powered blenders cause some sticker shock; but once I got one, I realized that I had never actually owned a “real” blender before. My brother called my Vita-mix an over-priced smoothie maker. But when I think about it, none of my discount store blenders I owned through the years even made a decent smoothie–much less were capable of making all the things I make now because of my whole foods lifestyle. I even grind all my wheat and grains in my Vita-mix (regular container). If I won the Blend-tec, I would compare it with my Vita-mix. I’ve always been curious how they compare, though I know they are both leaps and bounds above standard blenders. Then, if I determined they were comparative in the tasks they could handle, I would gift one to someone I know who would love to have a high-powered blender.

  390. I’ve been wanting one of these for so long it would be awesome to win :)

  391. I would love to make smoothies, sorbets, nut butters and coconut milk, as well as flour. Looks amazing!

  392. The Blendtec looks wonderful! I’d love to try making nut flours with it. My son has lots of allergies and one of his allergies is almonds. All of the allergy recipes seem to call for almond flour, and that is the nut flour most readily available (the only available?!), so I’d like to try making other nut flours. It would be wonderful to win that Blendtec!
    Thank you for all the info here, Adrienne!
    I just got my Lilla Rose order today and I love everything! Thank you for sharing such a neat company with us!

  393. Jessie P. says:

    I would LOVE to be able to make homemade nut butter in 45 seconds! Takes me at least 10 minutes with my food processor!

  394. I would love to win this monster for nut butters, flours, and smoothies! What a great giveaway Adrienne!!

  395. I need a new blender and this one would also grind the grain that I bought! It would do two jobs in one appliance!

  396. This would be such a blessing to have in the kitchen! I’d love to be able to make my own nut and coconut butters.

  397. Nut butters. Nut butters, nutbutters.

    Turning grains into flours….

  398. Thought of you as I stopped at CLNF for the first time this month. Great stuff! Our family is rebounding from mold poisoning and am grateful to be well enough to get back to my old cooking habits. Thanks for this most generous give-away. :)

  399. I’d love to win a blender to make large batch recipes. We currently only have a Nutribullet which is good for individual smoothies but not really anything larger.

  400. Sounds like a nice blender. My Cuisinart and I are on the outs. It gives me problems lately.

  401. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  402. What a blessing it would be to win this blender. Thanks for offering it to your readers.

  403. I would love to make hummas and almond butter using this blender. I’ve been needing a blender.

  404. It would be awesome to win this blender and be able to make the yummy things that are so expensive to buy. Thanks for the offer.

  405. Wow! I’d love to win this! We had a vitamix but never replaced it after our house burnt down last year. I have read a lot of great things about this product.

  406. I’ve never had one of these super blenders! I would love to win a Blendtec so I could grind flour and make nut butters and hummus!

  407. carol graham says:

    I use mine daily for my raw protein drinks and nut butters.

  408. I’ve been wanting a high powered blender for making nut butters and really smooth green smoothies. Thanks, Adrienne!

  409. 45 seconds to make nut butter? That’s reason enough for me! It takes me 20 minutes in my food processor and I have to stop and let the motor cool every few minutes.

  410. Christina Davis says:

    Oh my….. What wouldn’t I use this for!??! :) I have always wanted to make my own but butters!

  411. I’d make nut butters and smoothies. LOVE nut butters!!!

  412. Cathy North says:

    I’ve always wanted a Blendtec!!

  413. OOO, yes please! I’m all traditional, whole foods, cooked from scratch and this would be an awesome addition to my kitchen!!

  414. I’d love to be able to create my own seed flours with the blendtec!

  415. Looks fantastic!

  416. Meli Dayton says:

    I’ve burned through multiple regular blenders over the course of my 10 year journey to feed my family healthier. I even helped my DH go from only eating canned veggies to fresh spinach salads! Now we have 3 kids and my current blender (a Jack Lalane that was gifted to me by my dad) is leaking with no hope of fixing it. :( I love your blog and I keep advertising it in the Feingold facebook group. After reading how you make coconut milk and rice milk, I make coconut rice milk by cooking and blending brown rice with dried coconut and then straining it. Thanks so much!

  417. I have always wanted a high powered blender. I could do so many things with one!

  418. I’d love to win one to make my own butters and flour!

  419. I like making smoothies for my kids.

  420. I have been wanted a high speed blender for some time to help us eat better. This blender seems like it would fit the bill.

  421. Who wouldn’t want to win an amazing blendtech blender?!?!?!!! This sounds awesome I would love to win to be able to make my own flours and butters!!!

  422. I would love a high power blender to make almond butter. We eat it so much and this would be a big money saver.

  423. This would be awesome! I struggle making almond butter currently (and eat A LOT of it) so I would love to be able to make it as smoothly as you pictured.

  424. My parents finally got a Vitamix about 6 months ago and I have been the one to use it the most. I’m moving into my own place in a week, though and am so sad to leave it behind. I’m working on learning to eat only whole foods and to be creative with them, but I learn slowly. A high-powered blender is such a huge help in that process! Thank you so much for doing this give-away. I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  425. I want to win the blender because I want to make healthy food, smoothies, and almond milk for my family.

  426. This is my first comment here as I am a brand new reader to your blog. LOVE LOVE LOVE all the recipes. LOVE your writing style. And would really enjoy making sorbet for my granddaughter in this blender.

  427. Enjoy getting your emails and all the recipes. Would love having a Blendtec to make my own coconut butter.

  428. Melissa C says:

    LOVE this & have always wanted one!!

  429. I would love to make my own nut butters, grind my own flour, etc. and I can’t afford to buy one of these or a vitamix! I would love to win one!

  430. Why I want to win? Because I want one so very bad! I want to start juicing,nut butters, making soups, grinding grains, basically making all of our family meals ,snacks & drinks with that amazing blender. I have done research on it and it’s on my “I really really want this – but it’s so expensive” list!! Thank you for an awesome chance to win it!

  431. Wow, I have heard these ate wonderful, but didn’t know all you could make.

  432. Just saw a Vitamix demo today at Whole Foods. Was seriously wanting one. Now seeing the Blendtec, it looks even better! Would love to win this!

  433. Oh I need this in my life! I’m going away to college soon and although I love my food processor to death, 15 minutes on almond butter tends to get frustrating when my textbooks are calling me! Although, I’m still better off than a lot of other people who have to spend 10$ on a jar, haha! Thanks so much for the giveaway, I’m crossing my fingers, toes, and I would cross my eyes but I can’t! :)

  434. My smoothie machine just broke….probably because I used it to make flax flour, soup,green juices, and smoothies…we had a good run together but I’m open for something new :O)

  435. judy metty says:

    The possibilities are endless!!!

  436. You get to try out the coolest things :) Thanks for the opportunity.

  437. Lori Adamson says:

    I would love to have this blender. I would make coconut butter for sure and nut butters and smoothies. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  438. What a great way to get back on track with raw food preparation. Ice cream looks delicious! With gluten sensitivities and dairy allergies in my family, it would be great to have this.

  439. Andii Wiggins says:

    My children and I have been transitioning to a hormone-free, gmo-free, grain free and sugar-free lifestyle for a few months and using a cheapo blender is not really giving us the greatest results. The extra expense of purchasing pre-packaged nut flours, nut butters and nut milks takes a toll on this already tightly stretched budget. I would LOVE to win this blender!

  440. I would use this machine to blend my smoothies and puree ingredeints for my all Natural dog biscuits. thanks!

  441. The only blender I have is the super cheap one we got for our wedding, and it doesn’t do much of anything. I want to start making a lot more stuff myself (LOVE the rice flour you did!!), so this would be spectacular!

  442. I would love to have a Blendtec! I have recently started to grind my own flours and have quickly found out that my coffee grinder is not going to cut it. I would also love to start making nut butter and frozen fruit sorbets.

  443. Linda Salter says:

    This would almost make my kitchen complete

  444. I’ve been wanting to make the leap into making my own stuff from scratch, but don’t have the machine to do it. This would be perfect!

  445. I’m a SAHM and homeschooler, so we live on 1 income. We, frankly, can’t afford to purchase a high-tec blender. I’ve always wanted one!

  446. This sounds so amazing! I saw one demonstrated at Sam’s before, but wasn’t sure how it would perform compared to the Vitamix. I would love to try it out on coconut butter, nut butters and more!

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway. :)

  447. I would love to win this blender. We were just forced to go gluten and dairy free. Overwhelmed! :(

    • Please hang in there. I hope my blog helps. We’ve been DF for about 12 years. I have some in the house now but none for my son. You can do it…Blessings!

  448. I would do backflips if I won a Blendtec! (Not so easy to do since I have MS, but I’d find a way!) Eating healthier has been a priority for me since my diagnosis, but I have to find a way to make it easy for my family members or it just won’t happen as much as it should. Thank you for the opportunity to win this!

  449. Love your blog! And oh, how I would love a Blendtec! Since moving to Costa Rica from the U.S. I’m making so much more from scratch — it’s healthier, since I know what goes into whatever I make, and so many products we could get in the U.S. are either unavailable here or too expensive. My food processor is fine but I’ve been wanting a Blendtec for years!

  450. I want to win because I need to get more vegetables into my picky eater. I think if I could make amazing smoothies maybe she wouldn’t question the ingredients. Also because she is so picky the foods I feed her need to be nutrient dense which means a lot of homemade and from scratch foods, a blendtec would be an amazing help.

  451. Why would like to win a Blendtec? Not only do I want to win it, I NEED to win this. I’m supposed to boost my protein and eat small meals more often, and follow a GAPS/SCD, and now a yeast-fighting as well. I need to make my own soaked nut butters, grainless, sugarless smoothies, and other healthy stuff!!

    • Did you see my metals post? I’m hearing a lot about metals and candida these days…..sigh.

      • Adrienne, thanx for asking, I don’t remember if I read your post covering heavy metals, but I will check it out.I have definitely had this problem and have to find out soon where I’m at. Interesting you mention metals and candida together? Seems one issue makes one susceptible to the other issue? Once someone’s health is off balance, things just snowball until problems are addressed. Now, break is over, time to get my 8 yr-old homechooler back to work.

        • Yes, it does but there appears to be more to the story. I am hearing that possibly the candida is using the metals as a defense. I need to do more research. Thanks! And take care.

  452. I would love one of these high power blenders. I’d like to try making nut butters as well as other things. Great giveaway.

  453. Hi Adrienne! What a wonderful giveaway. I would be thrilled beyond words to win. My old blender is on it’s last legs :) Thanks so much for the chance! hugs, Ali

  454. have always wanted one of these, but way to expensive to buy on my own! thanks for hosting this giveaway!!

  455. 2x cancer survivor . . . I am doing everything I can to improve chances for good health. Love your info! Would DEFINITELY use a blend tek!!!

    • Thanks, Pat! I’ve been hearing about greens helping with cancer. Did you read my post on heavy metals? My practitioner says folks w/ cancer are in adrenal burnout. Maybe read my posts on adrenal fatigue. I hope to have her on my blog soon. And I think the oils company I just recommended….their owner says the Defense supplement is good for cancer as well. I am pretty sure about that. Take care!

  456. Heather Nowak says:

    I would love to save some money by making things at home. I can’t even make “green” smoothies because my blender won’t blend it enough…we have bits of spinach in our smoothies!!

  457. You are a favorite blog. Thanks for all the recipes and great research and information. This machine sounds incredible. Nut butters and coconut butter that fast? I liked my Bosch, but it can’t hold a candle. My daughter (who makes this stuff frequently for her allergies) would be thrilled! Thanks for the fantastic giveaway.

  458. OMG! My Vitamix recently quit working (after about 15 years of use)! I’d love, Love, LOVE to win this Blendtec!!! Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!

  459. I want to win a Blendtec because it’s a very high quality blender, and would be great for smoothies, and some of the recipes on this blog.

  460. Karen Miller says:

    My Vita Mix is on it’s last leg and I need to replace it. I would love to win this!

  461. Julia Doyal says:

    I so need one of these! I keep killing my cheap blenders. We make smoothies, would love to make nut butter but don’t dare with what I have. Really, you can make flour? That sounds totally awesome. I really need this!

  462. I would love to win! I could make EVERYTHING with it. I have a hand me down blender from my mom. It was a wedding gift from when she and my father got married in the 70s.

  463. Tricia Hart Kauffman says:

    I would love to win the Blendtec so that I can make my own coconut milk, almond milk, coconut butter, nut butters, sprouted flours, and so many other things that you need a high-powered blender in order to do.

  464. I would love a blendtec to better appreciate the seasonal bounty that we are blessed to receive. Apples, raspberries, pears, peaches.. I could efficiently create smoothies, juice, baby food, sauces, chutneys… Everything!! Thank you for this opportunity.

  465. A blendtec would be heaven to have. I would love to make almond butter and coconut butter!

  466. What a fabulous giveaway! I am constantly having trouble making things in my current blender. It is just not strong enough! I use mine several times a say as it is…with this Blendtec…oh my, the possibilities are endless!

  467. Dear Adrienne,

    Well I sit here thinking of all the reasons I would like to have this new blender and I am not going to list them for I have a vitamix and I am truly content with it.

    I decided to type because I thought it would b a good time to say thank you for all your work and your passion to help people, first your family and then the world at large. Your post and information have helped me and been a blessing, through a very hard “moment” in my family’s life. Going grain free to help our youngest daughter (2 yrs.) who is on the autism spectrum. (very high level of function). It is such a blessing to have all these resources at my finger tips. Well my nursing babe is a sleep so this tired mom is off to sleep.

    May you see all the blessings of the Lord everyday! Just knowing His hand is at work brings great peace and blessing.

    • How nice! So you just wrote this but didn’t enter? What a wonderful comment. Thanks for your kind wishes. I was feeling so like trying to be a blessings to my readers today. That’s why I’ve always tried to tell folks about what I’ve learned or experienced. But some just think I’m crazy :-).

      Blessings, Heather.

  468. Kimberly Rudd says:

    This looks great! I am trying to clean up my diet and eat more healthily and this would certainly help me out!

  469. A good blender that can actually handle raw veg feels like a needed step getting my hubby to eat better. And being able to grind grains would be so lovely!

  470. Looks like a great product!! Great for so many different uses!!! I’d love to win!

  471. I’ve never heard about the twist jar – I’d love to have one since I’ve tried to make nut butters with our wildside jar and it totally doesn’t come out right. Thanks so much – this is such an amazing giveaway!

  472. Susan Smith says:

    Always looking for tools to make my life easier!

  473. A blender such as this or a Vitamix has been on my wish list for a long time. We eat whole foods and appreciate these types of tools! Glad I found you!

  474. Nafeesa Lynn says:

    I’ve been wanting a high speed blender for a long time! I am allergic to dairy and having one of these would really help in the kitchen. Thanks for the opportunity!

  475. Would love to make healthy homemade ice cream and try making rice flour!

  492. i would love to be able to make coconut flour in my new blendtec blender!

  493. Growing up, I loved using my parents’ Vitamix. I gave up trying to use my basic blender to make the butters and flours that we love so much! I also miss amazing batches of pureed soups and sorbets. I would love to have a Blendtec! Thank you!

    I sit here with tears of excitement in my eyes. I have been on a 2 1/2 year journey to heal my son and myself from so many health issues. I have learned a great deal and we are seeing the results. I left my career to heal my son, which was a choice I will never regret; however, our budget is very tight…..and a high powered blender is not something we can afford. Winning this blender would truly be an amazing blessing as it is something that would help us in so many ways. Eating a whole foods diet has been the key element in our healing….and a Blendtec would make a world of a difference in our kitchen! Thank you for this opportunity!

  516. One word for why a Blendtec would be a great addition to my kitchen: Health

    Thanks for the opportunity.
