Blendtec Blender Giveaway!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
Anne-Marie Otvos Cain has won! She says she’s going to make “a zillion things!”

Calling all Paleo people! We’ve been nominated for Best Family & Kid Blog over at The Kitchn. If you enjoy our blog, please click the link and vote for us! We’d LOVE your vote – it helps spread the general idea that paleo can be done with a family in a healthful way! Such an honor ♥

I have great news, everyone!

No, seriously. It’s great news for me! I got one of the items on my Christmas wishlist! I got a Blendtec Designer Series blender with a Wildside Jar AND a Twister jar!

And Blendtec wants to give one of you one of these for free!

Get ready, because instructions to win our very Blendtec Wildside with Twister Jar (made with nut, seed & coconut butters in mind!) are at the bottom of this post. For now, I’m going to share what I look forward to using my Blendtec Blender for. I’m especially excited to finally have a blender strong enough to make our own almond & coconut milks without frightening chemicals hidden in them!

Now, why Blendtec? It’s the “swiss army knife” of blenders; look at all the functions it can serve:

It’s truly impressive and I think I’m in love. This thing will smooth out anything. I’ve already used in twice in recipes for Beyond Bacon: to make a chili sauce for grain-free Tamales (seriously, check out the pic) and to make a smooth-as-butter acorn squash soup.

It is seriously beyond my wildest expectations. I never would have thought that any blender could have chopped those chilies so fast! Not to mention, with so much pureeing of nuts, coconut and everything else in our kitchen – we’ve killed TWO food processor motors in ONE year. It was time to upgrade, and when I did my research I knew Blendtec was the replacement I wanted. Let’s be honest, if this device is going to be performing so many functions in my kitchen, it needs to be able to sit out on my counter! Also, a lot of the bloggers we respect have and love Blendtec (like Kelly, Juli, and Danielle).

It is a significant investment, but for the warranty and customer service that comes along with it, it should pay for itself! You can make it more affordable by getting a refurbished model (ours is!); we also have found that refurbished models are widely available and just like used cars – totally worthy of your adoration. The reason this shouldn’t concern you is because Blendtec’s motors were originally made for the commercial industry, just look at this comparison between a regular motor and Blendtec’s 1,560 watt technology!

This week, you should look forward to me using it to make several recipes because it’s totally Blendtec week! We’ll be reviewing this product all week with our honest feedback. The boys will get to touch buttons and let us know what they think

As a result, we’ll have terrific new recipes for you to try! But I know what you’re saying: How is this going to benefit me? I don’t own this particular product, so I don’t think I’ll even be able to make your recipes! Never fear – you can win one here!
