Summer of Blending Giveaway: A New Vitamix Machine!


Every week we have been creating a new allergy friendly recipe using a Vitamix machine. Instead of a new recipe this week, we wanted to surprise you with a giveaway of a new machine! I love my Vitamix and use it almost everyday. It has so many more uses other than just blending. You can make breads, soups, smoothies and even just chop veggies in it.

You can see our recipes we have created here with more coming each week:

The Vitamix Super 5200 is ideal to incorporate fresh grains and whole foods into your family's menu. Enjoy creating smoothies, hot soups, and frozen treats with ease. In addition, this blender package comes with a 32 oz. container specifically designed to grind whole wheat, corn, rice, rye, quinoa and more, into healthy fresh flours.


•32 oz. Dry Grains container grinds grain and kneads dough
•64 oz. container creates smoothies, hot soups, and frozen desserts
•Whole Food and Whole Grains cookbooks are filled with ideas to inspire your meals



This Vitamix 5200 – Healthy Lifestyle package is perfectly suited to a whole foods lifestyle. The 32 oz. Dry Grains container will grind fresh flour from whole grains and even knead the dough for you. The second, 64 oz. container handles everything from whole fruit smoothies and delicious frozen desserts to hot soups from scratch. The Healthy Lifestyle package comes with 3 cookbooks containing hundreds of chef tested recipes. The Whole Grains cookbook is filled with information about the benefits of grinding your own grain and step-by-step recipes to get you started.


Your machine is designed and built for outstanding performance and unsurpassed durability. When purchasing a Vitamix, you'll enjoy:

•Easy to use equipment paired with extreme versatility
•Chop, cream, blend, cook, grind, knead, churn and more, with one machine
•Cleans itself with a drop of dish soap and warm water; just run on High for 30 seconds
•7 year full warranty - Industry's best
•Ongoing recipe ideas and community support
