Hi Friends!

I’ve been so impressed by all your comments! Keep them coming!

In order to help you elevate all areas of your life I have included THREE more prizes to this year’s Vitamix Blender Raffle! The winners will be pulled and announced tomorrow (Thursday 12/17) by 12pm!

For the curious ones: the first person pulled will win the Vitamix and then I’ll pull three runner-up winners will get one of the items below. If you have already entered the contest you are automatically entered to win the runner-up prizes!


Here’s what I’ve added:

NEW PRIZE #1: Copy of My New Roots Cookbook: This is one of my favorites from my girl Sarah B over at mynewroots.org! You will love her photos and recipes so much that you’ll hardly know you are eating health food! Her approach is right up my alley and I know whoever wins this will cherish this beautiful book.

NEW PRIZE #2: My Favorite Hot Water Bottle: You may be thinking…huh? I know I know but once you go hot water bottle you don’t go back. I swear. This is such a nourishing practice for the winter and cooler months for those of you who live in colder climates – bringing it to bed with you or wrapping yourself up with it in a blanket with a cup of tea is one of the best ways to zap cravings for comfort foods!

NEW PRIZE #3: My Favorite Candle: I LOVE this candle in Balsam Fir – makes your house smell so fresh and Christmas-y but I love it year round!


If you haven’t heard your health nut friends sing the praises of their coveted Vitamix, here are my top 5 reasons why this Vitamix will totally rock your world…


1. SMOOTHies. That is right, who knew that the smoothness of a smoothie could get so dang smooth. Seriously, I don’t know why I love this so much, but I do. Every smoothie I make is like liquid silk, which makes it super easy to drink your greens without flecks of spinach in your teeth by the time you get to the office.

2. Gluten-free and otherwise unbelievable fresh flour right at your fingertips. You heard me right – this puppy can make super fine flour out of basically any grain you have in your cabinets: rice, oats, millet, you name it, which makes it an amazing companion if you have dietary restrictions. You’ll need the dry adapter to make flour using this Vitamix, but it’s totally worth it. There is nothing like baked goods make with fresh flour – trust me.

3. Super easy clean up. You just throw some hot water in there, a squirt of soap and crank it up for a second or two and wah-la! You are all cleaned up and ready to be on your way.

4. Souper easy soup. (get it? heh heh). But seriously. I made this soup using it and it was blended to a perfectly smooth consistency in just a few seconds.

5. Homemade nut butters and nut milks. Ok, I don’t know how I saved this for last, but I started making my own almond milk with my Vitamix and it changed my life. Seriously. I prefer it to regular milk 10 fold and as I always say, when the most delicious option is also the healthiest option, you are on your way to having an amazing life and a body to match. (Psst – if you want to see what you have to look forward to with nut milks, check out my video here).

  29. Carolsue says:

  30. Jessica says:

    Almond milk, I would definitely start making some almond milks to have on hand to make some smoothies with.

  32. Dana Frasz says:

    What an amazing offer! Summer is gone and as we transition into the winter months I look forward to being able to take lots of veggies, mostly rescued from the dumpster, and turn them into delicious soups. I love adding coconut milk and lentils to make them rich and creamy!

  33. luella says:

    I will make almond flour! or hazelnut milk! and daily smoothies!!! and, probably the third thing I’d make is vegan chocolate mouse (cocoa, agave, avocado, cashews)

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Sounds good Luella! So good to hear from you. I once tried melting chocolate into hazelnut milk and it was out of control good. I must try this vegan chocolate mousse! Thanks for leaving us the recipe! xo

  34. Luna Kaddatz says:

    i think that first i’ll make a smoothie! but afterwards i’ll try so many different things like hummus and nutbutters/ -milks – and raw dressings like from fullyrawkristinas recipes!!! :))

  35. Candice says:

    I’ll be making almond milk and SMOOTHies. I currently use a magic bullet to make smoothies and it doesn’t grind up green leafs too well. This way I can experience what a real smoothie should taste like and I can save money by not buying almond milk.

    On another note, I see that you went to IIN! I’m a new graduate…class of September 2013, just finished this past September. I actually miss school. I really enjoyed it!

  36. ada says:

  47. Nora says:

    Green Soups 🙂

  48. Tom H. says:

    I’ll be blending all sorts of smoothies, soups, and more with this Vitamix. Thank you for the opportunity to win one!

  49. Briana says:

    I would make smoothies! Our last blender broke so we’ve been without for a few months as we’re trying to save up for a new one. We’ve missed our smoothies terribly so winning this would be awesome!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      I hear you Briana! Before I bought my Vitamix I was using one I got for free in college that was cracked and barely worked and spelt like something was burning every time I used it – new appliances can make a world of difference, and the wait makes it that much more enjoyable! Wishing you luck!! xo.

  50. Brooke Jefferson says:

    I would make the banana nicecream that I see lots of people making looks yummy!!!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      I can testify it is delish! I especially like making it with cacao nibs for sprinkles – yum! Thanks for entering Brooke! xo

  51. Grinding oats and rice into flour! Soups! Smoothies!

  52. infysam says:

    Please help me get this one. I am not having any proper kitchen appliances at home.

  53. Alli W says:

    The possibilities are endless for my family on a paleo diet due to health reasons, almond flour, cashew butter, smoothies, new soup recipes, thanks for sharing, so excited!

  54. Lee says:

    Just pinned on Pinterest too

  55. karen says:

  56. Kathryn says:

    Awesome giveaway! I’d use the vitamix to make everything from smoothies to nut milks, and process grains to make my own healthy flours. I also work with kids in Northern Vermont, teaching wellness classes. Would love to show them how to process nuts and seeds, and make healthy veggie soups!

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Awesome Kathryn!! Love that you are teaching the ways of wellness to the next generation!! Thanks for all that you do. xo

  57. Molly conant says:

  59. Shawnna Jenks says:

    Such an inspiration!

  60. Eric says:

    I would love to try and make some homemade almond milk. We drink a fair amount of almond milk here and making it at home would be a big money saver!

  61. I don’t see the “rafflecopter” link to enter the contest

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Hi Holly – I am not sure why you are not seeing the link, have you tried refreshing your page? You’ll need to go through the Rafflecoptor widget to get additional entries through Facebook and Pinterest but just in case it doesn’t work for you, I have gone ahead and added you manually to the contest so you are entered and still have a chance to win even if the technology glitch doesn’t clear up in time 🙂 good luck! xo

  62. Shayne Galloway says:

    My blender broke a month ago and I’ve been using my food processor for stuff – including your delicious butternut squash soup recipe! We have it about once a week now. I’d make that and my green smoothies. Thanks for the chance to win one!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Love it Shayne! I am sure you and your family would get some good use out of it! Brian told me he is loving the butternut squash soup! So glad 🙂 xo

  63. Hannah! says:

    I would rig it up to my car engine so that I could make smoothies at the farm!

  64. Lauren says:

    I want to learn how to make nut butters…yumm

  65. Sarah Mele says:

    If I win the Vitamix I am going to make soap!

    Just kidding. As I scrolled quickly through the comments I kept misreading “soup” as “soap” and each time I did that I would think- Really? You can make soap in a Vitamix? Well, I am not surprised because it seems like the Vitamix can make anything…

    I am embarrassed to say that this millisecond thought process happened a number of times, probably due to all the toxins I have built up in my body from eating too much breakfast pastry. I hope I win the Vitamix so that I can blend my way to health.

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Loved reading this Sarah! And yes, you probably can make soap with the Vitamix – this thing is a wizard. Best of luck!! xo

  66. Laura says:

    So much almond milk and fake cheese!!!

  67. erin says:

    I would love to try making nutbutters with this!

  68. Emma says:

    Smoothies!!! For breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  69. Tina says:

    I love you can make fast hot soups with the vitamix

  70. Jessica Walker says:

    Okay so after thinking about it some more…peanut butter banana protein shakes! but pretty much everything would be made in this baby. #KitchenCounterTopStaple

  71. Jessica Walker says:


  72. Anna says:

    When I win 😉 …. I will make almond milk!

  73. Birdiebee says:

    I would first make a Montana Huckleberry smoothie.

  74. Birdiebee says:

    I Like the Krissy Ruddy page on Facebook as Terry Stevens.

  75. Birdiebee says:

    I pinned this giveaway on Pinterest.


  76. Birdiebee says:

  81. Tiffany O. says:

    I would make soups and dressings

  82. manda says:

    I would make a soup.

  83. Shannon Hiebler says:

    I make smoothies every day in my crappy blender now…so that would be the first thing I’d make! Oh to experience a great smoothie! 😉 I’d also love to try the nut butters.

  84. Ali Celestino says:

    I’d make soups and blueberry smoothies for the kids and strawberry for myself!

  85. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    I would love to make some homemade almond butter with this Vitamix!

  86. Kristy says:

    Smoothie bowl!!

  87. Kristina R. says:

    Hi 🙂 I am a vegan and therefore make a lot of nicecreams, raw cakes and plantbased milks. I will soon be going off to a UNI and therefore won’t be able to do any of this as I use my parents tools currently. Our mixer isn’t very strong therefore I often have to use a blender, but I believe that VITAMIX could do it all in one 😀
    I would definitelly make some hemp milk and GREEN smoothies. And my favourite – HUMMUS!! 😀
    Thank you for this amazing giveaway <3

  88. crystal s says:

    I would love to make smoothies with it! I always have one every morning. 🙂

  94. Judy says:

    I’m not a smoothie gal but, boy, do I love to puree veggies! Probably the first thing I’d do is puree a ton of butternut squash and/or pumpkin, using/freezing it as a base for baked goods, soups, chili – you name it! (I seriously love winter squash). After that, I’d start making my own flours.

    Wishing luck to all!

  95. I’ve wanted one of these for a while now! I want to make everything with it–soups, nut butters, smoothies, juice, etc etc!

  115. Leah says:

    Ever since you showed healthy recipes you make using your Vitamix, I’ve started exploring blenders and I think I would love one of these. I could make so many soups and smoothies.

  116. Holly says:

    I’ve always wanted a vitamix – for so many things wonderful – creamy soups (without the cream), smoothies, dips – that’s just a start.

  117. Liz says:

    I would love to make butternut squash soup. And my blender just broke… so…

  118. Jenny Gould says:

    I would use it mix up some shakeology 🙂

  122. AlexisB says:

    I will try some nut butters and milks! Also love green smoothies!

  123. Lisa says:

    I’d love to receive this vitamix. I am going through a particular health challenge and having this would help support me in taking my health & wellness to the next level. I’ve had a Blendtec but am not as impressed w the quality. Thank you for your valuable content and for this opportunity!

  124. I would love to make nut butters.

  125. Anna Lovelace says:

    Smoothies of course and then on to trying everything else in it!!

  126. Pureeing veggies from our farm share! Thank you.

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Love it Marcia! I’ve been roasting fall squashes and then blending them with veggie stock in my Vitamix for super simple yet wonderfully complex soups. Good luck! xo Krissy

  127. Tom H says:

    I would start with some smoothie recipes if I won this Vitamix.

  128. Kim G. says:

    I would love to win this, thanks!

  129. Amie George says:

    My family has been trying to replace one meal a day with a healthy smoothie and this would be great for it. A couple of my kids aren’t fans of veggies so it’s a great way to get some in their diet without them really knowing.

  130. Anna says:

    I have been really wanting a vitamix ever since I started drinking green smoothies. My basic blender just doesn’t get those leafy greens smooth. They say you should chew your smoothies but I’d rather not HAVE to! I recently started making my own hemp milk, and have yet to experiment with other nut milks but would love to be able to do so more easily. I also am curious about making my own flour. I can’t even imagine all the uses I would find for a vitamix if I won one!! 🙂 🙂

  131. Jeanie says:

    Green Smoothies!!!

  132. Deb says:

    I’m trying to get back to eating healthy after going through some things that REALLY knocked me out of my good habits so I would be making lots of green smoothies and green soups!!!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Hi Deb! Sorry to hear about the setback but VERY happy to hear you are moving back in the direction you want to go. This is the key. Best of luck and lots of love, xo Krissy

  133. Rachel Budke says:

    Awesome giveaway! I’ve been wanting a Vitamix for a while now. I’m hoping to do the 30 Days of Green Smoothies challenge by Simple Green Smoothies!

  134. Sarah B says:

    I would love to make green juices and soups with a Vitamix! It would be a great product to have- thank you for the opportunity! Xo!

  135. Marguerite says:

    I’d start by making breakfast smoothies for my kids. Smoothies seem like the perfect way to get tons of fruit, veggies, and healthy fats and proteins into their growing bodies (and mine, too). And then…soups, pancake batter, almond milk, hummus, etc., etc. 🙂

  136. Deborah Budke says:

    I want to be healthy and would love to start making some amazing recipes!
    I would start by making smoothies, soups, salad dressings, and sorbet.

    coconut kale smoothie!!!

    coconut water, coconut meat, dates, kale, frozen banana, maple syrup or agave

    🙂 it’s the best and only a vitamix could get down the right smooth texture.

  138. Kris says:

    I love to cook but have trouble finding time with my work schedule and lack efficiency in my kitchen. II would feed my family home cooked meals each day. Although I try to do this now, I want to step it up a notch with soups, nut butters and other homemade treats to keep myself and my family healthy!

  139. Tonya says:

    I’d live to win. If I do it will help me get and stay healthy

  140. Tonya says:

  141. Crystal says:

  142. Mariaelena says:

  143. LisaAnne says:

    Healthy body, mind, and soul! Owning a Vitamix would help my family on their health n wellness path!

  144. Teresa Lorenco says:

    I missed this giveaway until this evening! I am already signed up for your newsletter, so i hope I can enter 🙂 I am going to use the vitamix to make soups, smoothies, sauces, and nut butters AND nut milks. And any other recipies I find! I have played with one before, i love Vitamix-ers!

  145. Whitney says:

    I’ll be making lots of different nut milks and – if it ever gets cold – lovely pureed soups!

  146. Wendy says:

    I enjoy getting your emails and love your positive energy! I would love to use the blender to make anything healthy for all of my family. Thank you!

    I love seeing the amazing things you’re doing! Congratulations and keep it up!

  149. Jeanne Lane says:

    I’ll be making my morning smoothies and lots of great soup recipes. I also chop up all my compost for my worm factory…so I’ll be doing that, too!!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Hi Jeanne! This is the first I’ve heard of using a Vitamix for a worm factory – love it!! My yoga teacher I lived with used worms for composting and her garden was one of the best I’ve seen! Best of luck! xoxo Krissy

  150. Barbara says:

    If I win the Vitamix, there are so many things that I would make, starting with green smoothies! Then some nut butters, and the butternut squash soup sounds wonderful!

  151. Krystal says:

    Would love to win this for soups, smoothies and more!

  152. Julia Fields says:

    Ahhhmazing! Saw these at Costco yesterday and the nice gentlemen who was making and giving out samples made me a BIG personal smoothie because no one else was around at the time. Made my night! So if I did have one, I would first make my favorite smoothie – maca, cocoa, bananas, protein, peanut butter, chia seeds & hemp seeds… it’s the best ever and is really filling. Then try lots of new and exciting recipes! Thanks Krissy!

  153. Patty says:

    OH my Krissy… I’ve just learned about this amazing machine. I would start with smoothies for my 3 kiddos and then soups for me!!

  154. Ali Savitt says:

    I’ve wanted a Vitamix for so long!!! I will make nut milks and nut butters, and smoothies all the time for myself and my friends/family/roommate. My favorite thing to make when I’ve had access to a Vmix is a chocoalte “mousse” made out of cashews and cacao and more. Fingers crossed!

  155. Briana says:

    Umm…I’m gonna be makin’ aallllll the smoothies! Fingers crossed for this 🙂

  156. Jessica says:

    Smoothies smoothies smoothies. Feeling a huge draw to cleanse once I get through the next couple of weeks!

  157. Meredith Clayton says:

    I have wanted a vitamix for years just haven’t quite been able to take the plunge. I want one so I can more easily make almond milk for my daughter (my old blender is terrible!) and for making gluten free flours so I can bake bread for my husband who found out this year he is gluten sensitive. After over 30 years of eating gluten it’s been a hard transition! Breakfast has been tough for him without bread so more smoothies would be nice alternative to juicing. Such an awesome giveaway. So awesome to see you’re doing so well Krissy!!

    • Krissy Ruddy says:

      Hi Meredith! I hear you with the transition off gluten! I had to make the same switch last year and there is definitely some transition. I do notice though that one of the most significant impacts was switching from bagels with cream cheese in the morning to smoothies and WOW – what a difference! Good luck!! xoxo Krissy
