Blendtec Designer Series Blender giveaway! (closed)

Blendtec Designer Series Blender
I’ve really been enjoying working with my new Blendtec Designer Series Blender, as it is a cut above the blenders that I’ve used before and is good for a lot more than just mixing up fruit smoothies. The people at Blendtec were kind enough to provide an extra Blendtec Blender for me to giveaway to one lucky reader, so now is your chance to put your entry in for a chance to win!

Of course, I wish that I could give all of you new blenders, but since that’s not in the cards right now, you’ll have to leave a comment on this post stating your favorite use for a blender. Is it making blended coffee drinks? Pureed soups? Homemade peanut butter? Blender waffles? The winner of the contest will win one Designer Series Blender furnished by Blendtec. For an extra entry into the contest, you can sign up for the Blendtec recipe newsletter, which will deliver great (and sometimes surprising) blender recipes straight to your inbox.

The contest ends Sunday night at midnight (a.k.a. 12:01am on 05/06/2013) and one winner will be randomly selected from the entries. Don’t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be made public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck!

Click on “Continue Reading” and scroll to the bottom of the page  to access the comment form, or simply click on the comments section at the top of the post.

Update: Comments are now closed. Congrats to reader Johnny M on winning this amazing blender!

    Definitely smoothies! Although I only have a bar mix so they have been average smoothies!

    I don’t currently own a blender so I’m using my immersion blender and my favorite use with that is probably to make lattes.

    I use my blender for making bearnaise sauce (the actor Vincent Price”s recipe) . However, I’d use the Blendtec probably the most often for making my son’s protein drinks and smoothies! My friend has a Blendtec and whipped up the most delicious smoothies! I’ve been saving for a Blendtec, but this would help so much! And now that you have informed me that there is an ice cream setting on it, I have several ideas for ice cream in it! Of course, I’d make the mnt julep sorbet you posted. =)

    I actually make pesto in my (on its last legs) blender, usually half basil and half baby spinach.

    I love making whipped cream with my blender – just a couple pulses and you’re done. No need to get out the mixer and stand there forever.

    Milkshakes are one of my favorites, but since summer is approaching, I would have to say that cold gazpacho is my top choice. I like it perfectly smooth, not chunky, and the blender would be perfect for that.

    I already have a blender. Love it! Use it mostly to make protein drinks before or after gym. However,my sister and I are starting up a charity called Cariad Trust,the intentions of it is to raise funds to support other animal charities in South Africa through online auctions(via Facebook or ebay). We still in the early phases of developing this charity and the problem comes in the form of actually getting items to auction. This has been inspired by a 6 month old pup that was found in Cape Town in a barbecue almost dead, some kids had pulled some of her teeth out. Please take a look at Lucky Lucy Foundation on Facebook,pup is called Marble. To verify my story. I have contacted the foundation to make a donation. I would use the blender to auction to raise money through our new charity.

    My 12 yr old daughter loves making protein smoothies after ballet class. 4 hrs on Pointe can be quite exhausting! We make home made soup at least twice a week. And someone mentioned peanutbutter … YUM!

    When the kids were little I made all their food now that their grown, milkshakes and smoothies and my son has started a new healthy regimen and his protien drinks would also be made frequently in this!

    I would love to make thick, healthy, fruit & veg smoothies with an amazing blender like this! It would also allow me to explore making other foods like hummus, nut butter, soups, etc, since it has food-processing ability. Could make so much delicious healthy foods to share with others! Plus it is made in the USA 🙂 I also signed up for the recipe newsletter. Thank you for this opportunity!

    Smoothies, which are great anytime of day! Sauces for pasta. Grind spices for chorizo. Boiling chilies then blending them for salsas. Grinding flaxsee to toss into bread or oatmeal. The list goes on. Virtually making anything thats big into something small or something small that you want your body to more easy absorb the nutrients from. Helps in all around cooking, a must have in the kitchen.

    Smoothies/Milkshakes mostly now, but I’ve been dying for a robust enough blender to handle juicing and to experiment with soup.

    Vegetable smoothies is my favorite. I can get my kids to eat their vegetables without complaining.
