  1. My family has suddenly wanted more than a sip of the smoothies I’ve been making..my nutribullet is just not cutting it any more! I would love a vita-mix blender!

    1. Jennifer: I would too. I drink 3-4 heavily nutrient-laden smoothies a day as part of my recovery program from severe adrenal deficiency (Addison’s Disease) and lung cancer. Well, actually the lung cancer is cured. (HeeHeeHee) I’m a nutritionist after all. http://quercusflorida.blogspot.com/2011/01/essiac.html . The Addison’s is chronic, and I’ll never get over it, but I have lived for ten years in a place where the doctors wouldn’t believe me, and by the time I got to a doctor in Boston I was in VERY bad shape. I don’t know what I’d do without the smoothies, and would sure love to win the Vitamix. There’s all the difference in the world between a Vitamix and the cheap wannabe that I am using. The problem is that this website won’t let me write a comment, I’ve tried different browsers. If there is any way I could splash you around anymore I would. Clever idea. I have a LOT of followers. You must be getting IMMENSE response, and just for the cost of a Vitamix. Clever!

  2. I would love to replace my 35 year old food processor. I could make really smooth almond butter, hummus and almond milk without all the grit!

  3. I would use my Vitamix to make every meal of the day: smoothies and soups for main meals, hummus and nut butters for snacks!

  4. I would love to make smoothies that hide in stuff my kids don’t eat!!!
    THanks for the giveaway
    subscribed liked and Pinned!!!!

  5. I really would like one of these to do green smoothies! My old blender leaves grainy or small chunks cause it can’t chop it smooth. Green smoothies have helpedother family members lose weight, which they need cause of health problems. I want to stay healthy to keep bad health problems away!

  6. What wouldn’t I make….tonight it would have been nice to have one so I could make nut butter. I was kind of cheating on my diet eating cooking chocolate and instead of feeling guilty all I could think was man this could use some almond or peanut butter and a store brand just won’t do :O) That’s what eating healthy does to you….even a cheat day now has standards :o0

  7. I just started looking at these today! What a great opportunity! Thank you:) I want to make professional grade chocolate from scratch for gifts; also organic green smoothies and soup on a daily basis for myself. Nut milk and cashew cheese as well.

  8. Oh the desired Vitamix! What can you not make with this thing?! I want to make almond milk, smoothies, soups, baby food, yummy frozen deserts, nut butters, etc! Oh the possibilities! Oh boy oh boy do I want one. 🙂

  9. I would LOVE a Vitamix for my fruit/veggie smoothies, soups, but most of all, baby food! I am currently pregnant with my second baby and plan on making all his or her food at home. This would just make everything so much easier.

  10. I would love to have a vitamix so that i can make green smoothies! My standard blender just doesn’t do the kale like a vitamix would!

  11. I’ve worn out 2 blenders making smoothies everyday … well one I actually dropped and shortened it’s life real fast 🙂 I’d love to have one that is more up to the challenge of constant use!

  12. I am really interested in making some yummy winter veggie soups with a vitamix-which has been on my wishlist for the last two years!!

  13. I would love to be able to make my coconut, almond, cashew and macadamia nut milks taste so much better and smoother…this is on my wish list for sure. 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. I would love to win the vitamix because at the moment I am very stressed and I think it would be good for my body to have more smoothies and other easy-digested foods.

  15. Thank you for asking. I would first puree my soups because my hand blender has broken. Then on to the green smoothies. Kind regards everyone…

  16. I really want to win this for my sister. I love my Vitamix and want her to have one. I love making smoothies, gelatin gummy treats and soups. I even made mashed cauliflower in it a few weeks ago.

  17. I am on the journey for a new healthy lifestyle. I have been heavy my entire life and I have had enough. My goal is to become fit and healthy. A vitamix would allow me to thrive on this journey. I have wanted to buy one but being in school makes that impossible at this time. Using a vitamix would help me make healthy foods such as soups, smoothies and nut butters.

  18. I would love to make delicious soups!! I love making soup, and this would add a whole other level to my mad soup skills. 🙂

  19. I would love to try making ice cream. I have never attempted making ice cream, myself. I think with Vitamix I could master up the courage.

  20. Honestly, I would like to make just about everything in a Vitamix. Currently, pumpkin puree, smoothies, and smooth soups.

  21. I want to make any kind of smoothie! I just cut up a pineapple and thought to myself “a smoothie with this would be so yummy”!

  22. With the power of the vitamix, i would love to make nut butters, almond meal, coconut butter! Pretty much anything that has to do with baking and anything that could easily be blended at a fraction of the cost if you make them 🙂

  23. Oh man I have been lusting for a Vitamix for years! It’s so hard to choose what I would make first. I would probably make a fresh juice or coconut butter.

  24. I so need one of these and can’t afford to buy one. I had to get dentures because of a bad dentist ruining my teeth and I hate them and can’t chew much with them and have a hard time eating healthy now. I need to be on a smoothie etc. diet.

  25. I would make almond butter and walnut butter and all types of nut butters! Also juice things and make smoothies! Im in college so its pretty hard to buy unprocessed healthy foods this would make it so much easier:)

  26. I would absolutely LOVE a vitamix of my own. I would love to try making cheddar potato bacon soup in this! I would also be able to hide veggies in smoothies for my 3 picky eaters…I been using a ninja blender but it just doesn’t do a great job of finely blending the veggies anymore and my kids and husband can tell that their “favorite” veggies are in there. I NEED ONE of these bad boys!!! 🙂

  27. Gosh, I’ve been wanting one of these for a couple years now, but we’re far from being able to afford it. Someday! If I were to win though, I would make ice cream first, no doubt, because we make a lot of ice cream and don’t have an ice cream maker. Then after that, I would only use it for everything. The biggest food processor we have is two cups, so I’d be in heaven when it comes to emulsifying my soups and sauces!

  28. Hi!
    Would love to win the blender. I love to experiment in the kitchen and try out new things. This blender would help me a lot. I can just dream of all the things I could male: soups, sauces, smoothies… yum!! I really do hope I win! 😀

  29. I would make a pecan Filling for a Raw Vegan Pecan pie.
    I love creating raw vegan dishes and having a vitamix would allow me to create even more
    raw vegan goodies!

  30. I would love to win! I’m trying to lose weight after having my baby and I want to try the green smoothie diet. Sadly having a 3month old a blender isn’t in thw budget!

  31. I’ve been researching how to live with, if not cure the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia & juicing is suggested a lot for reducing wide spread pain and fatigue but is too much prep for me to handle. So, I would love to make smoothies with the Vitamix instead and start benefitting as soonas possible.

  32. I would love to win because I have very few kitchen items or appliances. My hubby and I are newer parents and both students, so we live on a very tight budget. This would see a lot of use in our kitchen and would be such a blessing. 🙂

  33. I would make Veggie and fruit smoothies. After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead I’ve been inspired to start juicing/making smoothies.

  34. If I were to win the Vitamix blender i would start making smoothies at home instead of buying them from food places. I have been spending too much money buying smoothies from smoothie joints and need to start making them on my own with my favorite ingredients!

  35. i would love to make green smothies , almond butter , coconut milk , ……….. you can do everything with vitamix , countless!! , following a healthy life choice and away from the proccessed food .

  36. I would love to try to make some almond milk! I’ve also found some recipes for different dips (guacamole, roasted red pepper dip, and avocado lime cilantro vinaigrette) that I want to try!!

  37. I would LOVE to use it to make Maca smoothies! My blender broke, and Maca powder is awful just mixed in juice, lol.

  38. Hello! I would definitely make nut butters & smoothies!!

    Thank you so much for a super generous opportunity!! ~H♥~

  39. I have a whole list of things to make in the vitamix, top of the list are fertility smoothies as we are trying to get pregnant and want the best nutrition possible. 🙂

  40. I will use the Vita Mix Blender to create creamy soups and to help with canning in the Summer…I will also use it to create my Essential oil creams and lotions. Oh yes, this will become our newest work horse. No Hay needed!

  41. Vitamix… The possibilities are endless. Homemade coconut milk, smoothies, soups… Okay, those are the first few that pop in my head, but I’m certain there are so many more.

  42. My family and I are trying to adopt a healthy eating lifestyle and drink smoothies almost every day. We have been wanting one of these so bad but unfortunately cannot afford one right now. So this would be amazing to win!! 🙂

  43. I’ve been coveting the Vitamix ever since my mom got one… I used to make amazing smoothies in hers and would definitely use mine for that… also, almond milk and/or nut flours for baking!!

  44. The #1 thing I’d love to make with the Vitamix is soup, for the whole family! But I’d also love to have it to make smoothies, baby purees, pizza dough for healthy pizzas…so maybe my husband would stop buying the frozen kind!!! And so many other things! I would love to win this, since I could never afford one on my own. Thank you for the opportunity!!!!

  45. So many wonderful paleo and AIP recipes I have been wanting to make but can’t because I don’t have something like this! This would be so wonderful to have!

  46. I would love to have a Vitamix again, used to live on smoothies and soups made in it, and even enjoyed grinding my own grains. Sadly mine burnt up after almost a decade and I haven’t had a chance to grab another one yet…

  47. I have been wanting a Vitamix for ages so I could more easily make smoothies, soups, and nut butters. Would love to have this and try many other new things!

  48. Wow, what WOULDN’T I make!? This is one of my most desired kitchen items…I’d make soups and sauces and ice creams and nut butters! The list is endless! 🙂

  49. I juice regularly for a chronic immune deficiency that I have. I’ve always wanted a Vitamix to make healthier juices and foods for my illness, since I’m trying to treat it with a healthier diet and lifestyle and not with prescriptions.

  50. Oh my stars, I’ve wanted a Vitamix for forever! I would make soup, smoothies, nut butter…. oh the possibilities are endless!

  51. Smoothies, soups, nut butters, nut milk, flours, salsas, and pretty much EVERYTHING! 🙂 Haha!

    What a great giveaway! So exciting!! Thank you 🙂

  52. My 10 year old Cuisinart blender just died. I would love to have a more powerful option for soups, smoothies and so much more!

  53. Everything! I’ve been using the magic bullet ever since my big blender broke and it just isn’t big enough to do anything well big! And it’s hard to do smoothies and dribble in the coconut oil or honey. I am missing my green smoothies!!

  54. Smoothies!! Green Smoothies, Coconut smoothies. Ever since my blender broke I’ve been using the magic bullet and it just can’t handle everything I do!!

  55. Oh goodness… what WOULDN’T I make with it 😉 pita dough from wheat berries, green smoothies, baby food, ice cream, soups, nut butter, nut milk, sauces… yup just about everything 🙂

  56. I just started the trim healthy mama “diet” which includes some amazin recipes for smoothies, grinding coconut, and almonds. My blender is horrible! But there’s no way I can afford to replaced it. I would LOVE a vitamix blender to make these slimming frappas and smoothies!

  57. Almond/coconut milk, nut butters, almond/coconut flours, HOT soup, dough, smoothies & green juice!!!! The possibilities are endless!!

  58. I really dream with a Vitamix I’m going to drink a lot of green smoothies!!
    I’m pretty new into liquid food and I love it!

  59. I would love a Vitamix so that I can make smoothies for my kids, especially for breakfast! I would also love to make my own almond butter because I eat so much of it!!

  60. So tired of using my old blender that never does the job right. Had a blendtec or vitamix on my Christmas list the last 2 years. Guess I must of been naughty. lol

  61. I’d make that yummy coffee mixture that uses coconut oil and/or butter…need to look it up again. And soooo many other things.

  62. Recently I learned I was allergic to 29 foods. I was told to switch to a Paleo diet but I do not like many veggies that I am not allergic to. This would help me make some kind of smoothies/juices that I could drink them instead. 😀

  63. I would use my Vitamix for juicing, pestos, soups, smoothies, hummus, bean dips, and anything else that can be made!!!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!!!

  64. I want to try my hand at nut butters and to grind my dried corn to make corn flour…it is slow going using a coffee grinder 😛

  65. I’d love to make all sorts of soup with the Vitamix. Ah, the thought of hot soup makes me happy, especially since winter is coming up!

  66. I’d love to win this for my mom’s best friend. My mom died in April and her forever best friend has been such a comfort to have during this time. She’s said she’d love a Vitamix and I’d love for her to have one.

  67. Mostly smoothies, but also fruit “ice creams” and soups and a whole lot of stuff! I have been wanting one for a while but just can’t afford it yet. I am using a 40 year old Oster, which is probably better than a new regular blender, but I know she won’t last long on my newer diet trying to eliminate processed foods……

  68. We love smoothies in this house and have them daily — frozen berries, greens, you name it. The old blender is struggling. I would love to make my smoothies in a new Vitamix!

  69. Gosh, there are so many things I’d love to try making with one of these. My own nut butters, green smoothies, homemade soups, frozen cocktails…

  70. I would love to have it to prepare the butters, smoothies, raw snacks and so much more. My daughter is lactose intolerant and we are trying to get more healthy recipes.

  71. I don’t really have any kitchen accessories and I am also interested in having more smoothies in my diet and being able to do more with my food so this is a win, win for me. *hint, hint* 🙂 Thanks for the chance and for giving away these wonderful prizes!

  72. I’m in the process of changing life drastically for my family… with the Vitamix I would make all of the smoothies, juices, nut butters, milks, and everything else to more efficiently begin the diet of Weston A. Price for my husband and I. Additionally, we have a 12 month old baby girl who I would love to start using a Vitamix to prepare her foods as well! My friend was blessed with one and absolutely loves it!! It would definitely be an answer to prayer!!

  73. Well, as I am Paleo/gluten free, I would love to make my own caulirice…and would love to also make my own nut butters……….and a million other things..but those are the first two that come to mind.

  74. I would love this! right now my g/f and I are trying to be as healthy as possible but we only have an old school blender that has trouble with everything!

  75. I would love to win a Vitamix for making soups! Also, I heard it makes fabulous nut butters for kids with allergies! Thank you for the chance to win!

  76. I have been wanting a Vitamix for ages to make a variety of foods–raw nut butters and coconut milk and smoothies and raw foods–just about everything, really! My husband is gluten-free and I am allergic to about 40 different things, and am trying to tackle overcoming my food allergies and pollen allergies through diet and liver detoxing. I am seeing a natural health practicioner and have seen some improvement, but I am still not able to make as much whole, raw food as I would like at the moment thanks to an itty bitty apartment kitchen and not having the proper tools. Having a Vitamix would change my family’s life!

  77. I would make green smoothies most of the time, but also maximize it’s usage with soups, fruit smoothies, ice cream made with raw cream. :o)

  78. I love my juicer and depend on my Cuisinart for so many things, but I’ve been craving a Vitamix since I discovered I can use it for grinding up different grains and nuts (like chestnut) for healthier baking flours, nut butters and so many other kitchen jobs that will streamline my quest for a healthier diet.

  79. Thanks so much for offering these giveaways. I’ve been struggling for the last couple of years to find ways to feed my family real food and nothing but, but our income puts some of the needed changes out of reach and we end up eating what I now understand to be inflammatory non-foods. A Vitamix would be a game changer for us and I would, of course, in honor of the win, start with Melissa’s raw butter pie.

  80. Oh there is so much I would make. Coconut milk, almond milk, coconut butter, sunbutter, almond butter, smoothies, soups, juices, and grind gluten free grain. The 2 biggest benefits would be nut butters, and grinding gluten free grains, especially since I cross-contaminated my grain mill with gluten grains. Oh the joys of a Vitamix! 🙂

  81. I would make healthy smoothies and soups with a vita mix blender!! I think it will be a great tool to start a very healthy life style!

  82. Would LOVE one of these, just waiting for my blender to over heat or blow up one of these days…hopefully it’ll last a bit until I can get a Vitamix!

  83. Winning this blender would be most awesome! My husband is diabetic & not fond of eating breakfast but he will drink a smoothie. I have been making them with my current blender & have to replace parts on it yearly. It would be so nice to smoothies & not worry if my blender will fail

  84. I could so use one. I am trying hard to learn to make my own soups, sauces Wheat free recipes and when I use my food processor it makes such a mess. It is a cheap one I guess! I know I can never afford to buy one.

  85. A Viatamix would make smoothies MUCH faster than my Oster. Also I could make creamed soups right in the blender and not have to heat it up on the stove!

  86. I would make all the healthy dessert recipes I keep seeing but can’t make with my sad, little blender and no food processor. This would be sooo nice to have!

  87. smoothies is a part of our daily diet..my kid is a picky eater the only way i can introduce raw veggies and fruits is through making smoothie.Wish i could win this vitamix so i can make better and tastier smoothies and sauces.

  88. been dying to have one of these! new to the real food journey and this would be a great addition to the kitchen to help out with many homemade recipes!

  89. I love juicing and smoothies. With my Osterizer Blender that I have had for over 13 years and my Singer Juice Giant that was handed down from my Mom and leaks everywhere I could really use a Vitamix. When I do have the time I have to juice all the fruits and vegetables that my blender can not blend. It’s double the work and cleanup. I would just love to be able to throw everything in my Vitamix and continue on with my hectic schedule. With my current weight double my husbands I am on a mission to lose weight and live a healthy lifestyle for my family and I. I am done with being called my kids’ “step-mom” because people just automatically assume they can’t be mine because they are skinny and I’m not. I was recently asked by my kids’ pediatrician “What diet are your kids on that you aren’t?” I also promise to donate my blender and juicer to a family less fortunate if I win the Vitamix. Thank you for doing something so wonderful.
