Vitamix 5200 giveaway especially for VegKitchen readers!

Vitamix 5200Great news for VegKitchen readers — Vitamix is offering their 5200 model high-speed blender to one lucky winner. It has all the features that has made it the gold standard of high-speed blenders:

  • Create every course of your home-cooked meal—from frozen drinks to creamy desserts
    —in minutes.
  • Create smoothies, hot soups, and frozen desserts with one machine.
  • 64-ounce container is perfect for family meals and entertaining.
  • Includes cookbook with hundreds of chef-tested recipes.
  • Standard 7-year warranty included.

In a nutshell, this machine is so powerful that it pulverizes whatever you put in it practically down to its cellular level, so when you make juice or soup, you get all the fiber—plus all the nutrition that is locked into the fiber. There’s no waste whatsoever.

Kale and pineapple smoothie2Among my favorite things to make in the Vitamix are smoothies featuring kale, like Kale, Cucumber, and Pineapple Smoothie. It’s also great for making raw cashew-based sauces like Almost-Raw Cheez Sauce.  No grit or texture in either case —the consistency is velvety and the flavor sublime. Here’s my review, detailing all the things I love about it and my favorite ways to use my Vitamix. 

This giveaway runs from February 2, 2015 at 2:30 pm EST to February 4, 2015 at 8 pm EST. Winner (chosen at random) will be announced on February 5, 2015 at 9:00 am EST on VegKitchen’s Facebook page, and the winner will also be contacted directly. Sorry, but this is being offered to U.S. residents only.

To enter to win, simply leave a comment below telling us why you’d like to own the Vitamix 5200 (retail value is $449), or, with Valentine’s day coming up next week, why you’d love to give it to your sweetie. One winner will be chosen at random. I’d like to thank the Vitamix Corporation in advance for this amazing giveaway opportunity for VegKitchen readers. Please note, sometimes it takes me a bit to moderate comments, so if you don’t see yours show up right away, don’t worry; it will!

    I’ve wanted one of these since seeing an ad in my Mom’s Mother Earth News back in the late 70’s early 80’s. Now I would use it for creamy nut milks. It has to be quieter than my current blender, which I use daily with ear plugs!

    My New Years resolution was to move from a vegetarian to a vegan diet and while I have stuck with it 100% a Vitamix would be the one thing to help me with all the new recipies I want to try as I don’t have a blender or food processor now – smoothies, cheeses, sauces, nut butters, etc. Just thinking about the possibilities makes me both excited and hungry.

    I would like to have a Vitamix for my sister is vegan for over 20 years but her husband and her mother in law alway against this life style. They forces her children to eat meat and fish whenever my sister gives them vegan food. She couldn’t afford to buy a Vitamix to make delicious and healthy smoothie for her kids who like green smothies and she feels sorry for that because at schools, they don’t offer vegan meals. She hopes having a Vitamix blender will bring her whole family closer to vegan life style and enjoy delicious green smothies together without sitting at separate tables and her children could bring their favorites smoothies to school.

    I am a stay at home mom, so we live on one income. My goal is to enter a figure contest by the time I’m 41 years old (I’m currently 39). As I pursue this goal, my life revolves around smoothies, pureeing cottage cheese, vegetables, and fruit to give me a wide range of macro-nutrients each day. I own a Ninja, which works okay, but I’ve already had to replace it once and sometimes it leaves behind a gritty texture to my smoothies. I would love nothing more than to add a Vitamix to my kitchen. It feels like a staple among “gym rats,” but somewhat unattainable for those under a tight budget. This would help so much! If not me, congrats to whoever wins it!

    Is love to share this awesome gift with my hubby. We’ve both been struggling to try and eat healthier. It’s not a resolution for the new year, but a life change we’re trying to make. We have recently gotten into breakfast smoothies- he’s not much on even eating breakfast, but i know he needs something filing and healthy to start the day. Our current blender sucks.. it leaves everything still kinda chunky. It’s hard to convince a man to drink a green smoothie, let alone a chunky, green smoothie.

    Winning a Vitamix would be amazing! I see so many recipes that call for one, and they rarely turn out in a food processor or cheap blender. My cooking abilities would expand dramatically if I had a Vitamix!

    First of all I would like to introduce myself to you, my name is Darlene. Smith and I am a Chef. I have used a Vitamix machine before for a friend that couldn’t digest solid foods. I loved it😄😄. I would like to have a Vitamix for a couple of reasons..I am just starting to take care of myself for once and this would help me to enjoy smoothie as a meal replacement sometimes and also I am financially at a disadvantage,right now it doesn’t fit in my budget.

    Thanks

    I drink at least one protein drink per day, sometimes two. I need to make sure go get a minimum of 60g of protein in my diet per day.
    A Vitamix would make it easier for me to have some variety in my protein drinks. I could add vegetables much more easily than using my current blender. And one of the things I don’t get enough of is vegetables.

Through these changes, it inspired the rest of my family to start eating healthier and exercising more. My parents both suffer from health issues and they have grown to love the switch to a cleaner diet and are open to all the new recipes I’ve made for them. I get thrilled every time they enjoy the baked goods and dinner dishes that I share with them. I enjoy sharing my recipes and creations through social media and hope to start a blog one day with my journey and to share my passion with others. I do lots of cooking via food chopper and blender which don’t quite cut it…would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE a Vitamix to continue learning and crafting new things in the kitchen, I would be forever grateful!

    I thought I would share a great blender recipe book with everyone. I have been following the author Jesse Morgan for the last two years, she has some great content. The book is titled: Blender Recipe Cookbook: Healthy Smoothie, Soup and Dessert Recipes.

    She has a website at http://www.fitrecipe.com, I usually purchase her books directly from Amazon.

    Hope you enjoy it.
