  1. Is it just for American citizens?
    I’m an Italian girl and I really enjoy read your blog!
    It’ s always a pleasure read all of your posts!
    Now I ‘ve not a blender, because my flatmate has moved out and she’s got taken it , I’m so sad, I can’t make any smoothies!

  2. I don’t even OWN a blender, so I would love to have this as well as he recipes that come with it!!! I am trying to feed my family of 6 healthier foods and watch the carb counts on everything as we have a hypoglycemic and a type 1 diabetic in the house along with a couple overweight individuals as well!!! The closer to natural I could cook the better for all in my house!!! Please consider us!

  3. Man oh man! I would make nut butter all day, everyday with this baby! I live in Italy and you can’t find it here so it would be a dream to have a blender to make my own! :)

  4. I look forward to trying so many of your top 20 blender recipes. Especially your drinks, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Orange Creamsicle, and Pina Coladas :)

  5. This is so awesome! I know the Oster name, and would love to see this unit in action. I would give it a go with a sprouted bread flour recipe. I’d be thinking that it would have the power to handle the dough.

    1. I was on your site earlier today! I saw Heather link up a dip of yours that looked amazing and I went to try to find it and leave a comment and got lost but I was checking out all your goodies! :)

  6. With that list, not quite sure where to start. Thinking start from the top and work my way down. Simply repeating those that I find exceptional. ;)

  7. It will be in the 40s tonight…it is officially soup season! Your tomato and sweet potato soups look delicious!!

  8. I think I would start with a salsa recipe I have been wanting to try and go from there. There is so much I could do with this beauty!

  9. My cute husband and I LOVE milkshakes, and would probably start making those all the time with one of these babies!

  10. I would start with the Orange Push-Up Smoothie and work my way through all of the fruit I could get my hands on.

  11. I make a green smoothie almost every morning, but I have the most awful and unproductive blender. I would LOVE to use this blender to make a morning beverage that does NOT include me chewing bits of kale. I love kale, and chew it often in the right circumstances, but in a smoothie I would like it to be smooth :)

  12. I’m doing a healthy living challenge right now and this would totally boost my health goals! I’d make my veggies into yummy smoothies!

  13. I want to start with soups! And smoothies! We don’t have a blender right now, so we’re sort of limited in terms of soup.

  14. Since I have had to go gluten-free, I think I will be using this baby to whip up some new things without flour in them.

  15. I love making banana chocolate smoothies with spinach, carrots, cinnamon, and ice mixed in. It makes my smoothie taste yummy! With this blender, I can do just that!

  16. I would definitely start with the chocolate peanut butter mocha power balls–YUM! All these recipes look amazing!

  17. I’d make tomato soup to can with it…my current blender is about to bit the dust unfortunately. It’s one my husband then boyfriend gave me almost 15 years ago.

  18. I would make peanut butter. I have never tried, I don’t think my food processor or current blender would hold up!

  19. I think I would start with the fluffernutter shake! Then hummus or horchetta. Thanks for a great give away. I really need a good blender.

  20. do i have to pick just one? I like the raw vegan chocolate chip cookie dough balls and the tropical green smoothie!

  21. What a great give-away! My blender is so, so sad. It sounds like it’s ‘ugly-crying’ whenever it goes past speed 2. I would make breakfast smoothies for my boys, followed by chocolate pudding – a good blender is the secret to making it super smooth. Thanks!

  22. I am finishing up a complete kitchen gut and this would be a wonderful addition. I have no what I would make first.

  23. My husband has been trying to loose weight and get healthy again! The smoothies and fruit juices I could make him with this would be amazing!

  24. I’ll make something to drink. With alcohol. And Fruit. Frozen strawberries that I picked last spring! ;)

  25. My daughter moved out a couple years ago & took our blender! It would be awesome to have another one…..especially this one! ♥♥♥

  26. I loved smoothies until my blender broke…I’d love to make breakfast smoothies every day with this blender!!!

  27. ooooh, to have a real blender! i have one of those knock off bullet blenders, it gets us thru protein shakes and some salad dressings. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a real blender and make real food with it! I would make a blended soup first… like pumpkin soup.

  28. I would love to make some nut milks and salad dressings made from nuts and seeds. I have a Blentec that just doesn’t do this job for me at all. Fingers crossed!

  29. i would use it to make my morning green smoothie:
    flax, spinach, frozen berries, vegan protein, almond milk, banana – delish!!

  30. Oh, what I wouldn’t make. I have had a blender for the last couple of years that could just barely blend water and protein powder. I would make all your recipes. I would make almond butter and hummus. I would make morning smoothies for anyone who came over. I would put this blender to constant and very good use!

  31. I make a peanut butter banana protein smoothie everyday. I also would use it to make my Vegetable soup :)

  32. When I made your chocolate peanut butter last week I kept thinking how much I would love a good blender for those types of recipes. I’d love to make that again, plus try a bunch of your smoothie and drink recipes!!

  33. are you kidding the possibilities are endless, smoothies, raw food (just getting into raw) nut butters, salad dressing, sauces, tomato juices, and on and on and on and on it would have to be on my counter 24/7!

  34. I’d love to win, I have so many saved recipes I want to try if I win since my blender recently died. I’d definitely make a pumpkin cheesecake milkshake

  35. I would love this to make soups now that the weather is chilling, and smoothies to get more fruits and veggies in my diet! What an awesome giveaway- thanks!!!

  36. Ohhhh how I would love to win this to gift to my son and his soon-to-be wife. They could really use this to whip up some great recipes! She is attending grad school and he had to work a lot. This would be perfect!

  37. I would totally make green smoothies, Averie’s Chocolate Peanut butter, Almond butter and maybe Pina Coladas!!

  38. What a great giveaway!! Would love to be able to make a nice and smooth green smoothie without chunks…I try but it’s just too hard to get down…lol

  39. I LOVE to make protein smoothies every morning with fresh spinach, tropical fruit, and SFH mango protein powder + hemp seed. I have had a new blender on my wishlist forever because I know if I had a new/nicer one–the fruit and spinach would blend ultra smooth!

  40. With the new blender I would love to try your recipes from drinks to special sauces when cooking for my family! It is how I pay my rent and they are always willing try something new! Thank you so much!

  41. I would make breakfast smoothies for the whole family! then I’d come back here and check out your yummy recipes. :)

  42. I’ve been going through treatment for throat cancer and these drink recipes look so good for my sore throat!

  43. A lot of smoothies! My kids have suddenly become big fans of them…and homemade versions of frappucinos. I have some of Starbucks new chocolate chai, and with some milk and ice – yum!

  44. Can’t wait to start my food blog up again! I’m waiting on a few more items until I launch my blog, but have used your recipes for many years as an inspiration every day!! This blender would be utilized and loved to its full extent :)

  45. I would make smoothies and frozen coffee. I would also use this to puree the ingredients I use in the sauce I make to marinate turkey.

  46. I’m over due for a super dooper blender! I am into the juicing/smoothies and mine is just about had it. I would love to win this sweet baby!

  47. I really don’t have any nice, high end kitchen appliances so I would love to try these recipes with the blender!! I think I would do the Horchata and first!

  48. OMG We totally need this!!! i love to make smoothies and our current blender is a total disaster!!! Your recipes look AMAZING too!!!!

  49. My kitchen is in DESPERATE need of appliances!!! And my wallet is in desperate need of $ to buy some!

  50. This is awesome! Our daughter is on Pediasure to gain weight post-open heart surgery and I would love to have a blender like this to make it for her versus spending $30/week!

  51. My last blender was used to make baby bird food for orphaned wild songbirds. Somehow I can’t get myself to use it for MY food since it’s ground up flied, crickets and mealworms. The Versa looks like my ticket to move on to people smoothies and soups!

  52. Living in Italy a new blender would be PREFECT for all the fresh fruits & Veggies here on the farm!!!

  53. I would make Creamy Coconut Milk Pumpkin Soup. I like your recipes, would also try your Blender Soup & Smoothie too.


  54. I’ve been wanting to make some of your chocolate peanut butter – that would be a great thing to start with!

  55. Oh man, our household is so overdue for a new blender! I can’t even make a smoothie anymore without it getting stuck for 20 seconds.

  56. Im 6 months pregnant and i would love a blender to make yummy and nutrious smoothies for me and baby :

  57. Considering our blender just broke I’d be using this to make so many things. Daily smoothies, soup, and I want to try to make some nut butters.

  58. I will make AmAZING breakfast smoothies for myself and my 3 year old daughter, who is notorious for her pickiness. This way, I can make healthy smoothies that sneak in the good stuff for BOTH of us! :)

  59. I would like to make almond butter or coconut butter…would be a heck of a lot cheaper then but buying organic ;-)

  60. I’m a Trim Healthy Mama, so I make scads of things in the blender…and mine broke! I NEED a blender for all my puddings and smoothies. How.I.miss.it!

  61. My breakfast smoothie would be the first thing: one banana, a spoonful of almond butter, a Tbsp. of honey, 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk, and a dash of almond extract. Yummy!

  62. My favorite banana peanut-butter smoothie: 1 banana, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 1/2 cup milk (dairy, soy, almond – whatever you like), a spoonful of honey(optional). Blend and enjoy!

  63. I would love to be able to make better smoothies! I always have trouble getting the ice to crush and have to shake the machine to re-distribute it.

  64. Gluten free is something I have switched to lately thank goodness smoothies are mostly GF. And I like lots of ice in mine, so hard to find a good ice crusher…and fresh salsa on the hot side….yum!

  65. There are a ton of items I want to make with the blender but since Halloween is right around the corner some black Margaritas are definitely in order.

  66. I make a pancake every morning it would be perfect for!
    1 egg
    1 egg white
    1/4 c cottage cheese
    1 Tbsp PB2
    1 tsp Splenda

    Blend! Pour into a pan and make one big flat pancake. Fill with cream cheese and fruit compote, top with granola :) YUM.

  67. I would make black bean brownies and vegan chocolate power muffins! :) Oh and definitely a bunch of different nut butters!

  68. I’m thinking maybe good for baby food?
    We’re adopting an infant in a couple of weeks and I REALLY want to make my own baby food!

  69. Healthy version of Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty–recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie–is my favorite thing to blend. I’d make one everyday if I had a blender that could handle it.

  70. I would make LOTS of nut butter. And I have been really wanting to try out your Cinnamon Oatmeal Date Bars with Chocolate Chunks!!

  71. My blender bit the dust recently – so I would LOVE this awesome one! I am missing making Green Monster Smoothies! I would make smoothies the most (I think) but also oatmeal pancake batter, pumpkin soup, milkshakes, and most importantly — frappes!! :)

  72. I plan on making lots of smoothies for my MIL. She has cancer and has a hard time without solids since radiation. I will also use it to make protein shakes for my family and for all kinds of fun recipes from you and other great chefs, cooks and bakers.

  73. I love the idea of incorporating the fabulous fall flavors into soup. I have been obsessive over this roasted red pepper and tomato soup lately, but I’d love to try a butternut squash and sage soup!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  74. I make a sweet and sour sauce in the blender. Also whip up this ingredients for alfredo in there before starting to cook it, so it is really smooth.

  75. I would definitely make some sauces and soups that require blending that I would like to try. Been holding off on them until I can get a new blender! Thanks for the opportunity.

  76. Had a decent blender but my daughter took it with her when she moved… would love to win this one! Love your blog and giveaway!

  77. I gotta try you spicy honey mustard recipe! Hubby also makes himself a smoothie for breakfast everyday, and my ancient blender is wearing out!

  78. Although nothing beats a good mortar and pestle….I would make all sorts of pestos and pistous with this blender. Traditional Genovese pesto comes to mind, but so does spinach-walnut, arugula-pistachio, hazelnut-sage, etc.

  79. I would make more homemade popsicle! I love popsicles made with fresh, organic ingredients! My blender base just cracked recently (hubby screwed it on too tight) so I have been without one for a little while. This would come in handy!

  80. I would use the blender for everything! I am currently using a hand me down from my mom that is pretty bad to put it nicely. I love making smoothies but it has been a pain lately.

  81. I would love to have this blender to make smoothies and sorbet and soup and oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless!!!

  82. I would make all kinds of things! including hummus! and smoothies! your recipes all look great–I’ll have to try some.

  83. If I win, I’ll first make my favorite green smoothie with kale, almond milk, banana, blueberries, chia & hemp seeds and a little agave nectar. Then I’ll just have to try your Orange PushUp Smoothie!

  84. I would make smoothies, soups, and all the things I’ve missed not having a blender for in the past year!

  85. I totally need a blender that will pulverize kale and other greens for smoothies – my blender just isn’t cutting it. Nobody in my family likes green chunks in their smoothies….don’t know why. :)

  86. I’m sure I’d make lots of smoothies in the summer, but right now I’d love to use this blender to make soup; probably smooth, creamy tomato soup or butternut squash soup!

  87. I would make the smoothies! Even if I don’t win, I just hit the motherload of new recipes for my daughter who is vegan! Thank you!!

  88. I love making all kinds of smoothies, especially fruit smoothies. Just throw in a serving of yogurt, with equal parts frozen fruit and ice. My blender is just okay.

  89. I’d make my new protein shake. Banana, milk, cocoa powder and pro7 (protein powder), blend it up, freeze it and eat it the next day

  90. I’m due for a new blender! I still have mine from the 80’s, my wedding shower. It’s about time? No? :)

  91. I love making puree soups of different national cuisines. I’d love to taste some of your recipe. For example those I enjoyed and loved at once include: chocolate dough balls, tomato soup, green smoothie (so green that I wonder where you got that color from), banana smoothie and frappuccino. If I were to choose one of the best I’d say frappuccino. How long have you been using your Oster blender?

  92. Definitely my green smoothies and also baby number two is about to start on solids, so I would use it for that too!

  93. I’m definitely making nut butters and smoothies with this baby! I just threw away my ancient Oster that just couldn’t blend anything anymore, so I’m really needing this one!!

  94. The one thing I never received as a wedding present was a blender. And I have been begging my husband to get me ever since. I would definitely use to make all those recipes that call for a blender and I don’t have one. :(

  95. those chocolate chip cookie dough balls look delicious! and so do those healthy brownie bites with the pretty sprinkles :)

  96. I would make soups and smoothies. I do not have a good blender so my fingers are crossed I will win this!

  97. I’d start off simple and make a strawberry banana smoothie :) (I’ve been craving one for MONTHS, but I don’t have a blender lol :) )

  98. My blender broke a few months ago and I’ve been in the market for one since. That creamy tomato soup looks amazing, but we miss out milkshakes and smoothies in our house!

  99. I look forward to the weekends so I can make green smoothies- that is definitely what I would use this blender for first!

  100. I would love a new blender. My daughter is celiac and her protein level is hard to keep up. Fresh smoothies in the morning would help even more than the store bought ones!

  101. I would love a blender like this one, the one I have can’t break apart a ice cube:)
    I would make smoothies and frozen treats and lots of vegetable soups, cauliflower, broccoli, pumpkin…… I could go on and on. Thanks for a chance to win an awesome blender.(sorry I can’t paste any links)

  102. I would love a high speed blender! Its perfect for the college life, I’d make soups, and dips, and fun drinks :)

  103. Our homemade salsa! Wonder if I could turn our salsa into a yummy soup with this blender? Maybe add some tortilla strips on top. :)

  104. I just saw the picture of your horchata and I’m thinking I would make that first. I love horchata and you can only find it at Mexican take-out here.

  105. Have an older Oster blender – still works, but it would love to be replaced with a newer model. Especially during the fall and all those wonderful squash soup recipes.

  106. I love to bake deserts with cream cheese and this would really smooth out the cheese. I cook a lot of soups and stews which would be so much easier with this blender.

  107. I’d make those cookie dough balls. I keep thinking I’ll make them, but my blender is not powerful enough.

  108. Gimme Some Oven recently posted a skinny pumpkin pie milkshake that I am in love with! That’s what I would make :)

  109. I would make nut butters and green smoothies! Also, soups now that it is getting colder! This looks like a good blender and very pretty! Be a great surprise to have a good one that works!!!

  110. I’m planning on a 3 month break from dining out. With the cold weather, I’ll be using this for soups. So comforting

  111. Hmmm– well, definitely my daily nutrition shake. And probably a LOT of Frappuccinos. And maybe I’ll finally take a stab at a couple of soup recipes I’ve been wanting to try :)

  112. I’ve been dying to try a green smoothie, but I don’t have a really good blender that can pulverize the spinach! This would be great.

  113. I can’t wait to make my own nut butter! Almond, peanut…all of them! And finally be able to test out some of the health bar recipes! Like recipes 5 and 8 in the post.

  114. The VERY first recipe I would try with this fab blender is the homemade Baileys! That looks incredible and is just in time for the fall holidays (Baileys is my Holiday drink :) Then I would spend the Fall making beautiful soups and daily breakfast smoothies. Thanks for the chance :)

  115. I love all your dessert recipes and also love your soups. This looks like an great blender, wonder if it will handle horseradish? Thanks for simply great recipes at Averie cooks.

  116. I’d love to make some nice creamy hummus in this fabulous blender. And I’d like to try making hot soup in a blender–what a concept!

  117. I will try some of Averie’s recipes that I have been pinning to Pinterest but dont have a powerful enough blender to make. Thanks!

  118. Id really love this blender to help me become a more healthy person. Smoothies have been on my mind…and not the kind with ice cream added either. :o)

  119. I make a great salsa, so I’m interested to see how it compares to make it in this blender vs. my food processor.

  120. I have wanted a juicer for ages! I would love to use this for juicing! Also, it would make a great food processor too! Thank you for the great giveaway!

  121. OMG…All those yummy dishes are making me super hungry…i would love to make each of those in my blender..:)

  122. This is awesome! I love blending for smoothies and cocktails, or using my blender as a food processor. This blender would come in handy for all those things, and would definitely be an upgrade from my current blender!

  123. Sorry I don’t twitter or instagram but I am happy to follow you on pinterest and facebook. I would love to use this blender to make green smoothies.

  124. Smoothies! My son and I love them, but the hand blender thing just doesn’t work as well as the real thing.

  125. I’ve been working on drinking my calories a little more in the morning so that the nutrients hit pronto – this would be great for those morning shakes, smoothies, etc…!

  126. I’ve just started running (to lose the baby weight) and bought myself a cheapo one person blender. I’ve been using it every day to make myself healthy veggie smoothies. Turns out my 14 month olf loves them too. I would love to be able to make bigger batches for our whole family! I want to try your Tropical Green and Orange push up smoothies!! Sounds so good!

  127. I have a Vitamix, so I want to win this for my daughter. She makes a LOT of green smoothies in her hand-me-down blender.

  128. How exciting! I’m actually looking for anew blender and this looks incredible!! The recipes look so yummy!! :D

  129. Ooh! If I win this blender, it’s gonna be smoothies for me! Healthy green smoothies! Fruity smoothies! Many many smoothies!

  130. Definitely making some green smoothies, it’s the only way to survive college being off of meal plan while living in a dorm!

  131. I would make tomato basil soup. The blender I have now isn’t powerful enough to get soup as smooth as I’d like.

  132. I am a blender nut!! from green smoothies to pureed soups to batters for pupovers etc…I blend almost every day. This blender looks great!

  133. I’d be ambitious and make the creamy tomato soup while also getting the boozy coffee going too – yum to both!

  134. I think I’d make Dorie Greenspan’s lemon cream tart. The first time I made it I didn’t have a blender so I used my quasi multi-tasking food processor.

  135. It’s cold and snowy today where I live, so I’d love to make some soup! Butternut squash variations are my favorite.

  136. I’d love to get back in the habit of making breakfast smoothies! Also, who knew you could be so creative with blender recipes? A new blender would help me step out of my comfort zone and make soups this winter! This first Colorado snowfall has me itching for a warm bowl today!

  137. My blender is broken and I have been dying to make soups and cauliflower puree for weeks now!!

  138. I would make a pina colada!! I am so sad I broke my blender two months ago and can’t wait to make them again!

  139. I would make blended coffee drinks. I love them. And it’s soup season now, so of course, lots of soup.

  140. I don’t do smoothies (I like some chew to go with my calories!) but I do make a LOT of frozen adult beverages ;)

  141. I’m a nut for any kind of shake or smoothie…I love tossing fruit, tea, sprinkles, or anything else into vanilla or strawberry ice cream and giving it a whirl!

  142. I will definitely make smoothies with this! My blender has such a hard time with frozen berries/bananas. It would be great to have something more powerful like this!!

  143. I have never owned a blender. If I won I would find some delicious looking recipes and make some fruit smoothies!

  144. I’ve made quite a few recipes from Averiecooks :) My faves, include the no-bake granola bars, the mocha power balls, and I just tried the choc peanut butter..whole family loves them all….with this blender I would make everything and anything I could. We love smoothies here!!!! Thanks for all the great recipes :)

  145. Oh man I would love this blender as I’m moving back home to the US so need to get set up all over again and also would love to use it to make baby food for my son. Hope I win!

  146. I’ve been wanting to try green smoothies…so many people swear that they are a better energy booster than caffeine (and healthier too) that I want to test it for myself and hopefully break (or at least reduce) my caffeine addiction.
