Hot Dang! I’ve been waiting for my cheap blender to die so I could finally upgrade to a more sophisticated appliance that could do so much more than mush up frozen fruit for me. You know I’m a soup and smoothie fanatic, right? Well then, can you imagine my excitement when this BlendTec campaign came out and I had the chance to participate? You should have seen me the day I got my new fancy appliance (I just can’t call it a blender, it’s just so much more) in the mail, I was like popcorn in a hot pan.
Opening up a BlendTec box is like unwrapping a new lifestyle. You just know good things are about to happen. Then, can you imagine what I did when a second one showed up? I was THRILLED I was going to get to share this experience with one of my readers! I don’t host many giveaways, so how do you like this debut with the $650 prize? Woo hoo! Read on for my two favorite breakfast smoothie recipes, a few bells and whistles this cool tool has and details on how you can open up your very own healthier lifestyle in a box!

Other Cool Things the Blendtec 725 Does
This fancy little machine does so much more than blend grade A smoothies to start your day off right! Of course that was the first thing I dug into because I am a smoothie junkie and I’m excited to include rougher fruits and vegetables that I’m not accustom to tossing in the blender. It also does wet grinding (grinds up high moisture foods like raw meat and soaked grains), wet chopping, dry chopping (great for nuts and cheese), dry grind (make your own bread crumbs or oat flower), juicing (but maintains fiber and 100% nutrient value), makes delicious frozen treats (sorbets and frozen yogurt) and the little beast even kneads bread! It’s too much, I can’t stand it!
It also cleans itself and has a digital display that tracks your blending progress so you can earn rewards and gives you compliments. It’s seriously awesome. You can learn more about this Blendtec model or check out their social profiles on FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, Twitter and Google+.
