Over the years I have owned several blenders. I know that I have owned at least 4 of them over the past 18 years. A blender can be a handy tool to amke things like this go man-go smoothie. However, the blenders I have owned have never lived up to my expectations. Two or the four I have owned died when the motor burned up. The two main things I use my blender for is making smoothies and German pancakes.
From the time that smoothie shops began popping up, I would always covet those beautiful blends used there to make deliciously thick smoothies.
I always dreamed of being able to have such a machine in my own home. Once I found out that such a blender was available for home use, I wanted one. That was until I saw the price. I was skeptical as to if the price was worth the investment. Would the blender hold up and make those delicious smoothies I love?
When I received a request from Blendtec for a review, it was a dream come true. I would finally be able to give the blender that I have wanted a try. I decided to test it out with a smoothie recipe and decided to try one from the recipe book provided with the Blendtec blender (recipe is included below).
It produced a smoothie just as I had expected. This is the thickest smoothie I had ever been able to make at home. There we no hunks or chunks of anything left in my blender. It was just like the ones in the smoothie shops I love to visit.
So far I have only tested this blender on smoothies, but I am excited to try all of the other amazing things you can do with the Blendtec blender like:
- Almond Butter
- Ice Cream
- Whipping Cream
- Baby Food
I was surprised to find out the it can even grind grains and meats. It can replace up to 9 appliances and is like a blender and food processor combined!
Blendtec is even providing a blender for one of you! It is a retail values of $454.95. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me the first thing you would make in your Blendtec blender if you were the lucky winner. You have until Friday Sept 22 at midnight (MST) to enter.Print
Go Man-Go Smoothie
- 1/2 cup Mango nectar ( I could not find this so I used V-8 Vfusion Light Peach Mango)
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 banana
- 1 cup frozen mango chunks
- 2 frozen strawberries
This recipe can be doubled and still work in the Blendtec FourSide jar.
You can prepare this is a regular blender but will need to add more liquid.
I have also made this with a heaping cup of mixed frozen fruit (pineapple, peaches, mango, and strawberries) in place of the frozen mango chunks and strawberries. I enjoyed this combination even more.

I’d make a mango/banana smoothie!
flutterby2188 at yahoo dot com
I would make super smooth and delicious hummus. The second thing I would make would be ice cream.
I would use this to make a healthy smoothie for breakfast every morning! Peanut butter/Banana and Strawberry/Banana —- YUM!
I love homemade pesto and smoothies!
I would make an ice cream pina colada, Yummm.
I’d make a strawberry banana smoothie

i would whip up some vegan pumpkin pie smoothies!
katherinedibello (at) gmail (Dot) com
Raw Chocolate Mousse!
I would make nut butter for my two toddlers and then some tortilla soup for me…then I would experiment!!
Smoothies for sure!
We’d make strawberry-banana smoothies!
The first thing I would make with this blender would be soup! My girlfriend won’t let me buy canned soup because of the sodium and preservatives so this would come in handy whenever I get my cravings!
I would definitely make some almond butter!! It is so expensive to buy organic almond butter from the store!
My kids love smoothies and we’d love to have a more powerful blender for them – also, I now make almond butter in my food processor – but I think this blender would do a much better job. In truth, I would use this blender for many-a-thing! I don’t like to have appliances out on my counter, but this one is so pretty and would get used so often, that I would make an exception.
Oh wow I hope I win! The first thing I’d do is make a milkshake! Yum! I would also start making my own soups!
A friend just told me about her Blendtec blender and it is on my list of “must haves” for someday, and I would be blending some of my homemade soups! This would be SO cool! Thanks for the chance to win.
the first thing I’d make is a green smoothie!
The first thing I would make is pesto. However, I would love to try soups.
Smoothies everrryday! I would also die to make my own peanut butter 🙂
Strawberry, pineapple, banana and kale smoothie
A protein smoothie would definitely be the first thing I would make since I usually make two a day.
Hi Laura, the first thing I would make in my new blendtec blender is a fruit and veggie filled snack for my four hungry kids after school. I hope I win. Like you, my previous blenders have not been able to produce smooth smoothies! Oh and my favorite thing about my new blendtec, no more whining for $5 jamba juice smoothies 😉
I would love this for Smoothies!!
I would definitely have to make a strawberry smoothie in a blender like this!
Definitely a smoothie or shake! I have tons of recipes on my list.
I would first make a tasty pumpkin-ginger soup!
Thanks for the giveaway!!
I’d make a triple berry smoothie 🙂 *Thanks* for the giveaway!
I would make smoothies for the kids, dips, soups and yummy ice cream!
The first thing I would make….ugh I couldnt decide. I want to make peanut butter and sorbets, my hubby would be begging for soups, my daughter would be asking for her favorite green smoothie and my son would be asking for his mango smoothie. So I guess all of the above would be made in the first half hour of it being in my house!
I would give it to my daughter. She and her husband are trying to have a baby and are avoiding all processed foods to help their chances in succeeding. The blendtec will help them in their fresh and whole foods prep.
If I had a Blendtec, the first thing I would make is homemade peanut butter! I hate all that stuff companies add to it.
First thing I would do is attempt to make a homemade version of the Biscoff Spread, since that isn’t available here in S.D. Thanks for a chance to win !
I would make my cherry, blueberry, banana frozen yogurt!
I would make butternut squash soup….mmmm! And just about anything else! I can think of so many recipes!
Delicious homemade peanut butter!!
I’m dying to try a real green smoothie with out any chunks!
I would use it to make smoothies, and use it to help process strawberries and peaches for jam.
Your smoothies look so good! I would probably make one of those.
I’ve been eager to start grinding my own wheat – so that would definitely be a first with my new Blendtec!
I would make a smoothie! Oh how I love smoothies!
The first thing I would make is a protein shake for breakfast!! yum!!
I would love to make some nut butters for my son and some yummy blended iced coffee drinks for myself!
The first thing I would make would be a spinach chocolate “milk”shake! Yum!
The first thing I would make is almond butter! The blender I have now is not very high powered and I have a very hard time making any nut butters.
The 1st thing I’d make is a frosty, frozen, strawberry margarita!
I would make a Frapp!! 3 Magic Bullets in 6 years and I’m waiting for this current one to kick it…they can’t stand the heat.
I would make the biggest green smoothie with lots of vegetables and fruit!! Thank you
I would make lovely & “smooth” nutella for my kids and followed closely by a slushie for my husband (b/c this baby can actually crush ice)
I would make some Hazelnut Spread, like Nutella. YUM!
I make green smoothies and veggie purees every day for myself and my three dogs. It would be nice to have a Blendtec to make the process easier and faster. There are so many other things I’d like to try making with a Blendtec, such as peanut butter, gluten-free flours, and soups, just to name a few. I’ll keep my fingers crossed until the announcement.
Whoops! Please disregard the multiple entry. I had received an error message the first time, so I didn’t think it had gone through. Sorry.
Peach Mango Smoothie!
I would make a drink to celebrate – but after that it would be smoothies and hummus!!
I make green smoothies and veggie purees in my blender every day for myself and my three dogs. It would be nice to have a Blendtec to make the process easier and faster. There are so many other things I would make if I had a Blendtec, such as peanut butter, gluten-free flour, and soups, just to name a few. I’ll be crossing my fingers until the announcement.
Oooh, I desperately want a Blendtec! My first would definitely be a green smoothie. Probably something with frozen strawberries, blueberries, spinach, and maybe a fresh juicy peach. But I’d love to try salsa, guacamole, tomato/veg soup, you name it. That thing would get a lot of use in my house!
I would make my morning smoothies in it! I’ve figured out through a lot of trial/error how to make my smoothies smooth in my cheap blender, but having a nice, powerful one would be so fantastic!
I would celebrate with a margarita! I do not currently have a blender because my dad dropped mine and did not replace it. It was super old with a glass pitcher so it was not doing the job anyway. I do not want to replace it until I can get my dream blender – Blendtec!!!!
The very first thing I’d make is a smoothie! Because every single blender we’ve had (and currently have) cannot make a decent smoothie in under 7-8 minutes. Seriously. They can’t handle ice and frozen fruit.
I would make my wonderful husband a green smoothie. He would love it!
Peanut butter! I love homemade peanut butter!
The first thing I would make is a pumpkin smoothie – I am in need of one of these (Blendtec and pumpkin smoothie:)

i would mix up something alcoholic and frozen
I would make a birthday cake smoothie! For sure!
I would make a pb banana smoothie!!
It’s so hard to decide what I’d make! Probably either raw almond horchata, or a mango lassi with cardamom.
Smoothies! Lots of smoothies! Just started a diet and it involves lots of smoothies!
I would looooove to win this1 We use a blender every day, and ours has seen it’s better days!!
Oooh! I would love this. We eat/drink a LOT of smoothies around here, and my Oster is just not cut out for the workload. Thanks!
Our family loves smoothies and it’s a great way to sneek some healthy fruits and veggies in.
I would LOVE to win one of these. I would start making smoothies. my daughter really loves them.
We make smoothies everyday and I would love a non-chuncky smoothy! Thanks for the opportunity.
We make smoothies every day but they are always chunky. I would love one that was thick and smooth. Thank you for the opportunity.
First would be a strawberry banana smoothie. Second would be almond butter because I love it but it’s so expensive to buy at the store
I would start off with a green smoothie and experiment with new recipes after that!
Ok, I’d probably try ice cream first. But I seriously would probably try something new every day with it! It sounds like the blender of my dreams! : )
Bread!!! from Wheat
I would make a mango smoothie that didn’t have chunks of ice in it!!! I have used the Magic Bullet and it’s just a joke. I am so tired of crunching my smoothies!!! I know this would be the answer!! 🙂
Thanks for the chance! 🙂
Heading into fall – I would make some yummy soups! I love a nice smooth creamy soup this time of year.
The first thing I’d make in my Blendtec would be tomato soup! There’s finally a chill in the air here and soups get me into a Fall state of mind. 🙂
Our favorite frosty Chocolate Shakes! 🙂
I will make yummy fruit sorbet!
I would make something with fresh peaches!
I would make my favorite frozen berry, almond milk and spinach smoothie. I haven’t had one in two weeks, since the motor burned out of my old Oster blender :(.
Smoothie-less in California
This may sound a bit odd, but I’d love to try to make flour from different grains. After my curiosity was satisfied, I’d pull out some of this summer’s lovely frozen fruit and make some smoothies. winterwrens at gmail dot com
The first thing I would make would be a fruit smoothie with everything in it, I’ve frozen all the raspberries from our raspberry bushes and would love to use them.
Hands down it would be a smoothie for my oldest. He’s totally into them right now (and it’s a great way to get some good food into him) and my Magic Bullet isn’t quite cutting it!
The first thing I would make is your German Pancakes, they sound super yummy, but I don’t actually own a real blender.
A banana peach smoothie is the first thing I would make.
I would make my breakfast smoothie i have every day!

I would make smoothies!
Chocolate banana peanut butter “ice cream” and smoothies.
I would make an amazing
5 oz. Frozen blueberries
2 c. ice
1 c. water
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Made with LOVE!
I would use it to make chimichurri sauce and pesto
Since I make marinades about 3 times per week, I’d give one of my marinades a try. It takes a tough, strong blender to make my favorite marinade because there are chunks of ginger in it! I’ve worn out 1 blender and I alternate between my other 2. I have a 3rd blender I use only for drinks because I don’t want my drinks to taste like soy sauce, coconut milk or the other \stuff\ I use in my marinades!!
What wouldn’t I make would be an easier question. We definately make 4 sets of smoothies every day. 2 mango coconut, 1 chocolate banana, and one protein berry. My son has also been asking for hummus lately but I have no convenient way to puree it all. That is where I would start.
A “green” smoothie, that my regular old ancient blender can’t totally blend. Pick me. I have wanted a really good blender forever!
Some green smoothies from Dr.Oz type of recipes
I would totally make an orange Julius type of drink. But I would also like to see how some of Dr. Oz’s green drink recipes would taste.
I would make a spinach berry smoothie. Winning this would make all my dreams come true. 🙂
Guac in the blender? Nice! I would probably start with smoothies though! My daughter loves them!
A banana avocado smoothie and then probably try guac in the blender, never thought of that before!
I would be making a healthy smoothie. My daughter wants me to start eating healthier. She is concerned about my health and said this would be a good way to start.
Soup! I love creaming my soup bases.
I would make a smoothie or the spinach ice cream the make at there costco demos.
My favorite choco-banana smoothies, then hummus, then pesto! I can’t believe it really does all those things!
hummus definitely! then probably some protein shakes…
Orange julius and smoothies!
Protein shakes and smoothies! Yum
I make protein shakes every day. I would absolutely die if I could win one of these.
I would make a chocolate peanut butter smoothie!
I would make some yummy green smoothies!
I would make some yummy smoothies!!

Home made peanut butter. Yum!
the first thing i would make if i won this awesome blender would be some frozen strawberry daiquiris
A smoothie with strawberries, pineapple, spinach, green grapes, banana, and a little ice. Serve it to my 3 kids and hubby and enjoy it around the table together!
I would try and make a smoothie with watermelon rind

I’ve always wanted to try to make my own almond butter or cashew butter.
Would LOVE to make a smoothie!!
I would love to win one! I make smoothies all the time – favorite one is made with Click Protein powder, creamy chocolaty espresso smoothness…
I would make Baby Food for my 3month old. I feel its important to make homemade babyfood because I can choose whats inside and I can also choose the quality of ingredients. I would also make a smoothie for my 2 year old. T
The first thing I would make with this blender is homemade baby food. i have a three month old and a two year old. My two year old loves fruit so i would love to make him his first smoothie. I feel it important to start with homemade baby because I know whats in the food and I can choose the quality of fruits used. At this current time I do not own a blender so, this would be very much appriciated.
My 9 year old wants to make salsa. My 11 year old wants to make tortilla soup. My 7 year old wants to blend are flax seed balls for breakfast.
I would make a smoothie
I would make ice cream. Yummy.
I would probably make milkshakes or smoothies for my daughters, they love both!
Orange Julius or try to copy the Aloha Pineapple smoothie from Jamba Juice!
I really really need this blender. Like you I am tired of them burning out. I use mine for smoothies and making soups, pestos, etc but the blenders never last long enough 🙁
First thing I would make is humus. I can ‘t get it smooth enough with current gadgets.
I would make Grasshopper milkshakes complete with Creme de menthe!
I would make mlkshakes!
We most definitely would make smoothies because our blender died making so many smoothies over the summer and we miss them.
Oh my goodness! I’d love to be able to make a smoothie without having to turn it on and off way too many times and mixing it up with a spoon to get the bigger chunks down to the bottom. Thanks for the chance!
I would definitely make some malt chocolate shakes.
I’ve always coveted these blenders, I would love one – but the cost is just a bit much to want to fork out for a blender ;). The first thing I’d make is a smoothie (or a milkshake…)
My blender broke recently and I’ve missed some of the recipes that require a blender: walnut sauce, romesco sauce, gazpacho, and of course, milk shakes and smoothies!
what a dilemma ;)…maybe a blueberry smoothie or some orange julius
I would definitely make my self a yummy smoothie or maybe a blended coffee drink. Would LOVE to have one of these machines!
Most people would think this sounds silly, but I would use my Blend-Tec for making homemade spaghetti sauce and tomato soup
Definitely a smoothie. My husband loves them really thick and that simply can’t be done with my cheapie $30 blender!
I make smoothies each morning for my son and hubby. My son never wants to eat breakfast before we leave the house in the morning. SO this is a great way to get in the nutrition. His fav smoothie is oj, vanilla yougurt, frozen bananas, mango and strawberries. I even add a tspn wheatgerm and flax seed!!! so delicious!!!
A peach smoothie.
I have heard about great soups using the Blendtec. Would love to give it a try! Then of course smoothies, ice cream and even a whole wheat waffle recipe that needs a blender to grind the whole wheat and the milk. Would be a snap!
I would make.. an ice-cream! Probably strawberry, maybe with apples. That sounds delicious!
I have been wanting to try a black bean brownie recipe, but it needs a food processor for texture…my pathetic blender won’t cut it! 🙂
Vanilla ice cream, orange dream yogurt, strawberries make a most wonderful smoothie! I make and drink smoothies every day, have tried many flavors. Would love to have one of these but have never been able to afford one. I have tried several brands of blenders but have not found one yet that will chop, grind or blend all the different types of ingredients I would like to use.
I would use it to chop up veggies and make a soup for fall. Thanks!
I would make a malt with chocolate Ovaltine. 🙂
I’d make smoothies for me and the kids- I’ve burned up so many cheap blenders!
Smoothies!!! I would also love to try grinding wheat.
To start off with smoothies for my kiddos. I have never tried it, but I would love to make hummus.
I would make one of my favorite protein green smoothies with my kids! I want one of these so bad but my budget just doesn’t seem to want me to have one. This might be my chance!!
I\ll be making green smoothies, mango lime cocktails, and frozen piña coladas!
Peanut butter chocolate banana smoothie!
I would make a smoothie!! I have burned up two motors this year! My friend has made me ice cream in her blendtec and it was fantastic!

I would make smoothies for sure!!!
I would love to make a green smoothie!
Breakfast smoothies for my kids (okay…and me too)
we make smoothies a lot around here, but our smoothie maker stinks!!! love fruit and yogurt together.
I would be out of my mind excited if I were to win a Blendtec! I have always had a crappy blender and unusually that would talk me out of even trying smoothly recipes that I wanted to. I would definetly start with a peach mango smoothly since those are my favorite!
A smoothie to start with, but I’d quickly move on to hummus and other recipes!
Green monster smoothie!
I’ve always wanted a Blendtec, but haven’t wanted to spend that much money! SMOOTHIES would be first on the list!
I would make a berry smoothie!
I would definitely start the green smoothie revolution at our house! My husband and I are planning on starting our family sometime next year, but I have a few health issues I need to improve on before we can start and I have heard nothing but amazing things about green smoothies.
And of course, with the weather transitioning to the fall season, I would definitely be whipping up some soup! One of the major reasons why I love this season is because of soups! (as silly as that sounds!)
Good luck to everyone!
I didn’t know you could make hummus in a blender (at least not mine).
I would love to give this a try!!!
I would use it to make morning green smoothies to start my day off right.
I have a pretty intense weakness for nut butters. So making my own at home? Yes, please!

The first thing I would make is a smoothie. Both my son and I love them.
I would make some chocolate nutella ice cream!
Hummus! And smoothies!
The first thing that I would love to make is Hummus! I buy Hummus frequently but it would be awesome to make my own. We don’t own a blender, and never have, and I have heard great things about the Blendtec. I would be thrilled to win!
I would make some smoothies first. Thanks for the giveaway.
We are major smoothie people here, so that’s first and daily.
first i would make some pina coladas!!
A green smoothie with lots of spinach and frozen bananas and berries! None of my blenders have lived up to my expectations, either.
I would love to make a fresh fruit smoothie. I woul love a blentec blender!
I’d make guacamole because of the delicious Avacados in season now- and my three boys love smoothies and I’ve always wanted a big blender!

Is it wrong if I say a frozen strawberry margarita? Next would be a smoothie!
Green smoothies for my kids!
I’d probably make a smoothie first!
Smoothies. Oh, I would love a blendtec!
I would love to make my own smoothies!
I’d make homemade coconut milk. I tried with my wimpy loser of a blender and it was a massive fail. Coconut milk is NOT supposed to be chunky.
Definitely a smoothie!
I would make some smoothies!
I would make Dutch babies. Or that smoothie is pretty tempting! Hope I win!!!!
I wouldn’t stop at just one thing, I couldn’t!
I’d start out my first day as a Blendtec owner by making (& enjoying) a Pineapple Mango Smoothie. For lunch I’d have a Hummus Sandwich and make the Tuscan Hummus for the sandwich in my new Blendtec. Finally, my reward for getting through another day with teenage daughters would be a frozen margarita to sip on while grilling Margarita Chicken on the grill.
Thanks for a great product recommendation and fabulous recipes!
I would make a carrot/mango, my favorite from the smoothie shops.
I would make a green smoothie, followed by an all fruit smoothie. But as I think about it, my favorite smoothie from the smoothie shop is a carrot/mango mixture. I think I would try that first.
I would make gravy for Thanksgiving. It’s a great recipe.
You roast root vegetables with the turkey, so the butter and fats run down and mingle with the vegetable during roasting time. When the turkey is resting, you scoop out the vegetables, and run them through the blender with some chicken stock to thin it out. It is AMAZING as a gravy!!!! BUT, you cannot make it without a blender, and I don’t have one…so please pick me! 🙂
I would LOVE this to make delicious & healthy smoothies for my family!
Oh I definitely would be making smoothies with this blender and I would also like to try making some
aw foods with it.
I would make a green smoothie!
Chocolate banana smoothie
I would make a Raspberry Daiquiri.
My husband would probably die for a Blentec. He would appropriate it, first thing, and make his famous salsa…followed by his equally famous guacomole…and, finally, a wonderful strawberry marguerita…just for me. 🙂
Definitely a smoothie…our family favorite!
Definitely a smoothie… A staple in my diet!
The first thing I would make is a pistachio cake recipe I have. It requires blending whole pistachios into a paste. I tried it with my regular blender and it totally failed.
First thing I’d make would be a smoothie with whey powderand lots of ice. It’s impossible to get that smooth with either my blender or my so-called smoothie maker. Then I’d wash it out and make hummus to have for lunch 🙂
I would probably make a peach cooler, but I might need to test and see if it really can blend my iPad.
I would make an all frozen fruit smoothie. My blender just can’t do it. My favorite is frozen peaches, mango, pineapple and some blueberries with some orange mango juice. Delish! Thanks for this great giveaway!
I would make a smoothie they are my favorite thing to make in a blender.
I have 5 children who love smoothies!!! I would make them all smoothies and then a margarita for myself! Some days you just need it!
My whole family loves “jump start smoothies” frozen strawberries, yogurt, and v-8 splash. It is heaven in a cup and would be even smoother with this blenders.
First thing I would make is a chocolate milk shake
A green smoothie. It is a great way to sneak veggies into my kids diets. I would love a blender that actually blends.
I was looking at these in Costco. I would so love to have one but the price is a little high for me right now. The first thing I would make would be a fall roasted vegetable soup. Yum!
I would love one of these because I make a green smoothie every day and this would be awesome to have.
My kids and I saw a demonstration of this. They loved the green smoothie with spinach,apple and other healthy ingredients. They kept going back for more! This would be awesome to have in our kitchen so we can make good for you smoothies anytime! Thanks for the great giveaway.
My kids and I saw a demonstration of a green smoothie with spinach apple and other healthy ingredients. My kids loved it and kept going back for more. This would be awesome to have in our kitchen so we can make those good for you smoothies. Thanks for the giveaway!
Butternut Squash Soup!! YUMMY!
First thing I’d make would definitely be a smoothie!! My junkie old Magic Bullet (there’s nothing ‘magic’ about it) just can’t handle thick smoothies with ice….a Blendtec would be heaven!
Soup! We’re huge soup lovers and I’d love to try that out.
I would love this blender! I would definitely make some homemade salsa and smoothies. 🙂
I would make gazpacho!
The first recipe that I would try with the Blendtec, is my spinach dip.
The first thing that I would make would be a strawberry banana chocolate yogurt smoothie.
I so need this! I would make a green smoothie.
I also love smoothies, but I have heard the soups made in the Blendtec are wonderful, so I think I would start with tomato basil soup.
Ooooh, I have been dreaming owning a really high-quality blender! If I won the awesome Blendtec, I would invite friends and family over for the Best Frozen Margaritas EVER! 😀 Then I’d whip up something healthy. But first things first, folks! 😉
I would definitely make a smoothie with it first, but I love that you can grind grains in it…that would be very handy!
Oh man. I would whip up my favorite Oatmeal Peanut Butter Smoothie. This time I would not have chunks of ice left over.
Wow! What an amazing looking blender. I could do so many things with it but the first thing i would do is make a fruit smothie.
I would make a really nice thick smoothie with lots of fruit.
that would be a dream come true! I know making a smoothie would be the obvious thing but I would be so excited to open up so many more possibilities in my cooking.
Milkshakes for my kiddos!!!
A green smoothie! My poor little cheapo blender just can’t do them justice.
I’ve been wanting one of these blenders because we make lots of smoothies. The first thing I would make would be a smoothie loaded with fruits and veggies.
Smoothies – I make daily smoothies for my boys and always wish I could add more greens (my current blender just doesn’t get them fine enough to fool them).
The first thing I would make in my Blendtec blender would be all the Green Smoothies that I have read about on the internet. My husband has Parkinsons and I think it would benefit him to start with some of the smoothies that have greens and a little fruit, there is no way we could buy one of these and the blender we have is a Hamilton beach and I have tried to make a Green smoothie in it and it was so gross!
Thanks for a great giveaway. Brenda [email protected]
This blender would cure my kitchen angst forever! I’d make blueberry, peach and coconut smoothies first. Thanks for the great review!
Malted Milkshakes for the girls.
My girls and I love smoothies and our blender is dying! We’d love a new one!
Would totally go the fruit smoothie route, maybe even lose those last seven lbs!!
OMG! What a great giveaway! I use my current blender almost daily to make smoothies and it makes the most awful noise and smells like it is going to burn up! LOL! The first thing I would make if I won this is one of my ‘green monster smoothies,’ without that burnt smell and awful noise!
We got one on their refurb sale about a year ago, and are SO thrilled with it! We’ve made lots of great smoothies, but have also been able to make our peanut butter (awesome) and blender pancakes (yummy)! I was so hesitant at first to pay this kind of money for a *blender* of all things, but every time we use it my husband tells me it is totally worth every penny. Plus, they have an amazing warranty! We love our Blendtec!
Wow……….first thing I would make is a fruit smoothie!
What a great review. it’s so great to hear from someone who has actually used a product. I think I’d have to go for a strawberry peach smoothie.
I would make my famous Green Smoothie – vanilla barista powder, Odwalla Superfood and lots of ice!
I would make a strawberry peach smoothie. What a jewel of a blender that I would love to have.
I make a smoothie pretty much every day for breakfast. My Bosch blender does an ok job, but I have been dreaming of owning a Blendtec someday!
This would be awesome! I would perfect my pumpkin smoothie first and then give the give the grain grinding feature a spin : )
Dying for one of these! First smoothie I’d make in it would be a green one!

Chocolate banana peanut butter shake! hmmm!!!
My kids love smoothies – so that would have to be what I would make first!
First would be a chocolate-peanut butter milkshake . . . you wanted honest right . . . at least to break it in, before the more frequent smoothies.
I would make homemade Nutella in it!!
I would give it to my husband and have him make a chocolate, peanut butter shake! Love his shakes!
I’m tninking a smoothie with lots of goodness hidden inside so my husband will drink it! (:
I would make a smoothie with kale. I tried this in my blender and it wouldn’t grind it all up. It was very chunky. I would love to have a new blender.
First thing would be homemade peanut butter. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

I cannot tell a lie, as much as I should probably say “smoothie”, I know in my heart it will be a milkshake. Yum!
I’ve been admiring the Blendtec’s also. I would turn into a smoothie making machine – generally they would include spinach 🙂
