Win A Vitamix Blender Worth $995 At Cook Republic
Did you know that 1 in 2 Australians get TWO OR LESS serves of fruit and vegetables in a day? Did you also know that almost one million Australian adults had absolutely NO fruit or vegetables each day? The most startling finding in the 2013 breakfast research conducted by Vitamix was that the younger generation was more likely to skip their fruits and veggies compared to the older generation. I know there are a lot of people out there trying to do the right thing for their health and the health of their families. They try to eat healthy, make right food choices and stay fit. And there are many who have good intentions, but a busy lifestyle often turns their efforts to vain. I might have something for you today to motivate you towards a healthy and nourishing start to the day.
Vitamix 7@7 Challenge
A few weeks ago I got involved with the lovely people at Filtered Media and the Vitamix 7@7 Campaign. The 7@7 campaign is all about re-claiming breakfast, and your health. with the Vitamix 7@7 Go-for-Green Breakfast Challenge: at 7am every day, have a green smoothie with at least 7 fruit and vegetables, and do it for at least 7 days.
FREE Vitamix E-Book - Photography & Styling By Sneh Roy
I set out to style and photograph the 7 recipes for the Vitamix 7@7 Campaign created by  leading media personalities like Fast Ed, Teresa Cutter, Sally Obermeder, Janella Purcell, Kemi Nevkapil, Ironman Pete Jacobs and Vogue’s Sigourney Cantelo. They sent me a Vitamix on loan to play around with and shoot all the recipes.  Join the Vitamix website to download the FREE e-book and see my photography. The e-book is fantastic and will give you ideas for the giveaway question below. My favourite was the "Strike A Pose Smoothie" by Vogue Beauty Director Sigourney Cantelo. It has mango, acai berry powder, coconut and whole kiwifruit. Divine! See some other outtakes from the shoot in this post.

I love creating easy, vibrant, fresh, everyday recipes and taking gorgeous photos of the food I cook. I have been blogging for 15 years and I have also written a book with over 100 new recipes. If you make a recipe from the blog, Tag @cookrepublic on Instagram. I would love to see!


  1. peter

    I have no idea what I would create, but I would have great fun trying out many different recipes every day.

  2. Lilli

    I would make all of the soup. Every soup ever.

  3. Tracy Andreatta

    I’ve been hearing good things about clean eating & green smoothies , so I would try a green breakfast smoothie first . It might be an acquired taste but I’m up for the challenge .

  4. Stacie Mayer

    I’d really love to start making green juices/smoothies in the morning. My current blender just doesn’t cut it,so having a Vitamix would really help my mornings get off to a great start.

  5. Megan

    I would definitely be creating breakfast smoothies (lots of experimenting) with a blender that isn’t about to give up . . .

  6. Jessie Hay

    I would definitely be creating different blends of fruits and vegetables to find combinations that taste really delicious! 🙂

  7. Julie Green

    The most mind-blowing shake in the world, of course.

  8. sheenagarg

    I would create Sneh’s berry lassi 🙂

  9. Michael

    Fennel and basil puree to go with fish

  10. Sonia El-Sheikh

    I would create yummy dips for entertaining ( ok i lie, dips for me!)

  11. Karly

    I’d make lots of soups starting with creamy pumpkin. So easy…..cooked pumpkin + bacon + onion + chicken stock + a dash of cream. Yum.

  12. Michelle

    I imagine being able to start my day with a healthy fruit smoothie & I love different dips, so experimenting with them would be fun!

  13. Lianne

    OMG! this sounds so good! I would definitely be making all the different kinds of nut butters as well as try making my own soy milk!

  14. Chris @TalesofaKitchen

    OMG what wouldn’t I do? From the finest nut milks to silky smooth nut butters, smoothies everyday without having to peel/chop veggies and fruits, and all sorts of soups. 🙂

  15. Elizabeth A

    Anything to get me eating greens (I don’t eat many greens) – but balanced with yummy sweet fruit! Apparently you can blend spinach and kale – who knew?? Add in some strawberries, apple, carrot, maybe some citrus, and go nuts! Hmm, maybe nuts too!

  16. Julia

    Oh my, what a wonderful addition to the kitchen this would make! I’d make lovely green and fruit smoothies for breakfast, nut butters and dressings to enjoy with my lunch, and hearty seasonal vegetable soups for dinner! xx

  17. Natashia

    OOOOHHHH… this sounds amazing! I haven’t actually heard of a Vitamix before, but it sounds perfect! I used to make smoothies some mornings until my bullet blender died. My favourite was spinach, Greek yoghurt, chia seeds, flax seeds, frozen blueberries, frozen pineapple and a dollop of honey.

  18. Allie

    Oh what to make, what to make! I would try out something like this . . . plain yogurt, coconut milk, coconut flesh for added texture ,the juice of a single lime, a dollop of honey, a sprinkle of chia seeds, and ice. But ooo the possibilities. A x x x

  19. Deepa

    Ohhhh what an awesome giveaway! Hard to pick one thing out of all the ideas in my head but I can’t resist the idea of making ice cream. I would go with a coconut milk and macadamia ice cream with a strawberry ribbon. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  20. Ross

    Pumpkin soup – nothing better on a cold winters day

  21. Joanne G

    What a great giveaway…..as I am not keen on eating breakfast I would love to try creating delicious and healthy smoothies….

  22. Dirtgirl

    Beetroot, carrot, apple & LSA smoothie would be my first choice, but basically I would be happy to whizz up any available veg into soups or fruit into smoothies.

  23. Cara R

    I would update my mum’s Banana Smoothie by adding organic gluten free oats to banana, mango, an egg, a spoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic vanilla extract, organic coconut cream (which is actually just pure coconut) and organic rice milk. It is an awesome breakfast pick-me-up, and omitting the raw egg makes it good even for kids. And it tastes amazing 🙂 Or I’d use it for juicing, soup making and a hold bunch of other stuff! And thanks for the chance to win 😀

  24. Stefania Montesano

    If I won a Vitamix Blender I would definitely commence the green juice trend, after watching Martha Stewart for years who is an avid green juice drinker I have tried to introduce this into my diet. I have a great juicer but I know the Vitamix is that step ahead in that all the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables are retained and I have been wanting one of these forever! I too have tasted the apple and cabbage icecream – hard to believe but it is truly delicious!

    I would commence immediately with this smoothie:

    1tbs fresh ginger (love it), two stems of fresh mint (leaves and stem included), 1 green apple, 1 carrot, 1 mandarin, 2 kale leaves, 1tbs organic chia seeds, 1/2 cup cold water, 1 cup ice – blend

  25. Jess Lomas

    I was just gifted a massive bag of chestnuts from my dad’s farm, would love to try making chestnut flour in the Vitamix!

  26. Rianna

    I just read a recipe on Baked Bree (sorry for the other blog ref!) that sounds so delicious, for Cherry Almond Smoothies including the following ingredients: Vanilla Almond Coconut milk, cherries (fresh or frozen), raw almonds, raw honey, cinnamon, almond extract and coconut oil. She used a Vitamix to make it, so it’s a proven winner 🙂

  27. Anna

    Soup – especially roast vegetable or pumpkin with cumin. Warming, perfect for winter also excellent to help me get the body I want for summer.

  28. Ellie

    I would make a banana smoothie with lots of yoghurt, cinnamon and honey

  29. Kat

    Baby food!

  30. Marian Paleologos

    As a fan of the Paleo food program the Vitamix Blender would create amazing healthy breakfasts for my family including a Fruit Salad smoothie made with a banana, peach, apricot, mango, apple, orange and strawberries blended with coconut milk, sweetened with stevia, served icy cold in a tall glass and dusted with a sprinkle of cinnamon!

  31. Selena Lindemann

    I’d love to try a Chilli Chocolate Smoothie with milk, drinking chocolate or cocoa, banana and chilli powder … wow, that’d have a kick!

  32. Courtney

    I would make a smoothie with: Strawberries, mango, almond milk, spinach and frozen banana, yummo!!

  33. Catherine

    I’d love to make lots of ice creams with the Vitamix because it’d be so much easier and less mess!

  34. Lauren A

    Carrot, apple, celery and ginger frappe! Quantities to suit your taste, touch a taste of ginger, plenty of ice. Yummy way to start the day, with a little “bite” to it to really get your motor running.

  35. Lauren A

    … make that either a touch of ginger or a taste of ginger lol.

  36. Tracy Boulter

    A healthy smoothie with banana, pineapple, coconut milk and ground flaxseed, have been told it helps with high blood pressure.

  37. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef

    Surely everyone has heard of a Vitamix? I’m dreaming of a beetroot, apple, carrot and ginger juice right now. Tomorrow it might be different. 🙂

  38. Kate

    Holler, Sneh.

    At the moment I can’t get enough of a green smoothie – you’ll need a handful of kale, a handful of spinach, 1/4 of an avocado, 1/2 a banana, 2T greek yoghurt, 300ml coconut water, a scoop of ice, half a handful of macadamia nuts, 1/2 a cheek of mango, 1/2 a handful of raspberries, and a spoon of peanut butter or tahini.

    I’d place all of the greens at the bottom of the Vitamix and add all of the other ingredients, and then blend to drink. Enjoy!

  39. Rachel K

    A soup of love that is rich in health, prosperity, good fortune, optimism, eternal happiness and joy with a strong flavour of potato and leek!!

  40. Lorraine Clark

    I have long wanted a vitamix but now at 60+ years of age its just not going to happen on my social security budget, but I am green with envy for my Aussie friends who can enter this contest. Who ever wins I truly wish much joy and use for you and Good Luck to all who enter.

  41. Sowmya

    I would love to win one for making some healthy smoothies and soups. Wish I was in australia,… Nice giveway. happy to follow you

  42. Sharon Fawcett

    My favourite thing to make in my current blender is ‘Blender cupcakes’ so I’d give them a burl and then I’d probably just goes nuts making anything and everything.

  43. Karen Kitto

    Making dips so much easier to make and saving me from getting RSI from making them. Thanks for the op.

  44. Anna

    Green breakfast smoothie for brekky, and soup for every other meal. I love soup!

  45. Ash M

    It’s winter warmer time so I would make my favourite Roasted Tomato soup with tomatoes, chicken broth, onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil and oregano. Delish.

  46. Rebecca Taylor

    I’d make a yummy berry and ginger smoothie with a dash of beetroot!! Too good!!

  47. sonja

    As a cook from scratch vegetarian, this would be amazing for my family. I would incorporate it daily life from smoothies (yes, the latest green smoothie fad) to soups to hommus to ricotta cheese. It would be limitless what could be done with this vitamix. Anyone who wins it will be very blessed indeed ?

  48. Angela Frazer

    Green smoothies with whatever I have available. This mornings: Baby spinach, banana, pear, coconut water and spirulina!

  49. Katie

    Breakfast! Every morning a different combination of healthy fruits and vegetables – the options are endless … and yummy

  50. Danielle T

    I would make my own coconut butter and save lots of money! Just blend up desiccated coconut… only works in a vitamix though!

  51. Julie

    I’d puree every meal that we eat so that the baby can have the same as us, puree veggies to hide in the kids meals and make delicious smoothies full of fruit and veg for the whole family

  52. Rhonda Lockery

    I have been dying to make a recipe a friend made for us
    Emerald Ecstasy
    2 cups of Green Grapes
    1/2 Pineapple
    1 banana
    1 Green apple
    1/4 bunch Spinach
    and ice
    this is so healthy and very tasty

  53. amy

    WHAT WOULDN’T I MAKE! i would make pumkin soup and some virgin pina coladas mmmm

  54. Josette

    I make a green juice several mornings a week but I use an old crappy blender that is hard to clean and quite small. I’d love a vitamix to blend up my kale, spinach, ginger, mint, parsley, lemon, apple and cucumber juice!! (otherwise it can go on the wedding registry)

  55. leanne

    anything with ginger! maybe pineapple, carrot, celery, apple, ginger, coconut and cinnamon….

  56. Melissa O

    Spinach strawberry and mango smoothie to get the whole family shaking in the morning.

  57. ami@naivecookcooks

    Ohh Sneh you need to start thinking about people with US postal addresses as well 😉 !! Lol

  58. cath

    Organic and green is alright with me it , mixed with a Vitamex Blender is the way it should be.

  59. melinda kumar

    simple…frozen bananas and strawberries…whizz it in the vitamix and make banana and strawberry ice-cream…you can’t get easier, healthier or tastier that that !

  60. Amelia Wasiliev

    My smoothie would include some of my favourite juice flavours with a bit of extra green and grain for healthy – ness..
    Kale, cucumber, lemon, mint, pineapple, green apple and chia seeds.

    • Sneh

      thank you Heather! I did, so stoked 🙂

  61. Keralee McMahon

    I would make almond milk

  62. Amy

    Ice cream is a given but if I was to get creative it would be nut butters and spreads. Maybe a Gingerbread flavoured almond and coconut butter? YUM! Pina Colada pineapple coconut ice cream…

  63. Kara

    The best damn smoothie ever. My smoothies are more like ‘lumpies’ i can never get them right even though they are one of my favourite treats.

  64. Lisa Abejja

    I would make some deliciously indulgent Macadamia nut milk !!!


    1 cup raw macadamia nuts
    4 cups filtered water
    1 tsp. vanilla bean paste
    Optional Ingredients

    Pinch cinnamon
    1 date, stevia, coconut syrup or raw honey for sweetness.

    Place the macadamia nuts, water and vanilla paste into your Vitamix.
    Turn the machine on the variable speed 1, quickly turn up to variable speed 10 and then override to High speed
    Leave running for about 30-40 seconds until it is nice and creamy.


  65. Deepa

    I would make a gorgeous baked yoghurt dessert that I recently learnt – hung yoghurt, condensed milk, cream and fruit whizzed, then poured into glasses and baked in a water bath for a few mins, then chilled. Simple but divine!

  66. Lisa the Gourmet Wog

    4 Kale Leaves, 1 cup baby spinach leaves, 1 banana, 3 sprigs parsley, 3 sprigs fresh mint, 1 cup of organic rice milk and you have one wicked green smoothie!! My 2 year old LOVES it, she drinks it all up and walks away with a green mo 🙂

  67. Kim

    I would love a Vitamixnto create a plethora of tasty and nutritious smoothies. I’m a vego so I have to be creative about how I get my protein, I love smoothies with banana, yoghurt, chia seeds, peanut butter, cinnamon a splash of agave and a handful of fresh spinach. I would love a vitamin because I have blown up 2 cheapo blenders in the last 6 months because of my enthusiastic smoothie mixing.

  68. Meryl

    A Banana Blizzard with frozen bananas, milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup.

  69. Louis

    Mocha Shake – brewed espresso, chocolate ice cream, milk, crushed ice, and cinnamon.

  70. Simone Burton

    I would finally get the chance to indulge in smoothies every morning, i would follow the 7@7 guide and create mouth-watering combinations including feijoa – my absolut fav!

  71. anastasia

    Id make my daily Green smoothie and Id definetely try a soup in the Vitamix – it looks so easy to do!

  72. Jenny O'Keefe

    I would make some wintery soup – chicken, lemongrass, ginger, chilli and lemon.

  73. reread

    My Sunday morning pre bike ride smoothie – one red apple, one frozen banana (a nice overripe one) about 5-10 almonds, a squirt of honey, dash of cinnamon, a glug of soy, rice or oat milk and a good heaped tablespoons of natural yoghurt … mmmmmmm so good.

  74. Amber

    My kids will eat heaps of veggies in smoothies that they would never touch in it’s whole form! When my daughter wouldn’t eat broccoli, guess what?! i steamed it & put it in a smoothie! I’d love to try persimmon in a smoothie, I reckon that would be delish!

  75. Lise Williams

    I would make juices for sure, but how nice and smooth would my cream of whatever soups be?


    I would make a banana and honey smoothie with some peanut butter added in – I figure they taste so good together on a sandwich, that it has to work as a smoothie. Low fat vanilla yogurt and some wheatgerm to complete the concoction,

  77. Lyndel Rowe

    mean green juice

    1 cucumber
    4 celery stalks
    2 apples
    6-8 leaves kale
    1/2 lemon
    1 tbsp ginger

    Wash all produce well
    Peel the lemon, optional
    Pour over ice

  78. Zo @ Two Spoons

    I would probably do sweet and savoury versions of cashew creams! My food processor and immersion blender can’t get the same kind of silken smooth texture as a high-powered blender can. I tasted a cashew cream made with a proper high powered blender and am super keen to get one now!

  79. Samuel Ferguson

    “Rise and Shine” Breakfast Shake

    fresh squeezed orange juice
    Greek yogurt
    organic vanilla extract

  80. Linda Courtney

    Apple, carrot, celery, chilli and a little ice to tame the heat.

  81. Lisa Jene

    I’d use the Vitamix to play with colour. Smoothies with raw beetroot or blood orange, or multicoloured soups, say a pumpkin and broccoli with a dollop of creamy potato in the middle. Who says I can’t play with my food?

  82. Diane

    I’d love to start making green smothies, so a Vitamix would be perfect! I’m thinking kale, spinach, pear, mango, orange , flax seeds and ice. And I’d love to make some homemade almond and peanut butter. Yum!

  83. Sarah Hutcheon

    I would perfect my summer thirst quenchers over the winter, i’m thinking cucumber, mint, lime and ginger with soda water!

  84. Lisa

    And this is where I wish I lived in Australia! Such a great giveaway!

  85. Brittany Thomas

    Smoothies. Milk, frozen banana, peanut butter, chocolate.

  86. Vintage Macaroon

    My current processor is not that flash so loads of nut milk, and green smoothies will be a must. I also want to make my own LSA which I hear is a cinch in the Vitamix. I’m afraid though, at night, it will be transformed into an icy cocktail maker!

  87. Veronica Paterson

    I would create a complete breakfast FULL OF FRUIT drink for my family with whatever fruit is available , on those mornings when there;s no time to sit down & have breakfast……………..OR I’ll create a sort of love potion(or at least like) called “FRUITY-LOVE-LICIOUS” to give to all the guys from Bon Jovi when they come here in December…………I want pictures with them & autographs too of course!!

  88. celia husmann

    raw milk
    chia seeds

  89. Emma Galloway

    Oh how much would I love to win this Sney!!! My raw cheesecake would be so much nicer (and smoother!) if I used a Vitamix instead of my little cheapy blender.

  90. nags

    i would definitely start making all nut butters at home, especially my husband’s favourite crunchy peanut butter. i’d also give dosa batter a whirl in this since i hear it works well! no more hefty wet grinder to take out and put away each time i crave dosa!

  91. Martyna @ Wholesome Cook

    Oh my gosh, I would so LOVE to get my hands on one of these… Anyway. My dream smoothie include whole fuits and veg plus a whole heap of wholefood goodness:
    whole orange, raw beetroot, carrot, a bit of ginger and parsley, some lime, spirulina and wheatgerm, macadamias and goji berries. Oh and some avo! Tasty with a dash of texture.

  92. Alex

    Maple syrup, vanilla, yoghurt smoothie. Yet to perfect my recipe but the ingredients are basically just that!

  93. Nichole Mckee

    What I would make with the Vitamix is freshly made bubby food for our new little one who’s just about to start solids, he could have and enjoy exactly what the rest of the family is eating for din din 😀 Whether it be Bangers and Mash with peas and corn for tea to custard and fruit for dessert 😀 Good Luck Everybody 😀

  94. milkteaxx

    congrats on blog of the year! you deserve it! if i won this new vitamix i would create an amazing fondue for this cold cold weather. i am thinking along the lines of a four cheese blend ( whatever tickles your fancy, i love brie!) , with some chilli salt, paprika and cumin to spice things up a little;) oh and cos serve it with a vitamix bread!

  95. Louise Williams

    I’d make a fibre and antioxidant filled smoothie made of:

    Fresh peach slices
    Fresh pear slices
    Dried dates
    Fresh grated ginger

    a terrific way to start the morning only my blender can’t handle the dates! A Vitamix would definitely help me start my day right, every single morning!

  96. Monica

    Sugar and spice and everything nice… joining the healthy revolution in style.
    One thing I love is to combine sweet and spicy, tangy flavours. Toss in some strawberries with a dash of maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice mixed in with swirls of almond milk, oats and mint leaves. A handful of cashews and a generous serve of crushed ice… the result? A smoothie to die for!

  97. Lyn

    Loving your posts. I just started a raw diet, so I’d love to be able to make pie crusts from walnuts, chia seeds, almonds, pecans, dates etc. Then to make the fillings with home made almond milk, pureed rhubarb, or organic berries and coconut. Savoury dishes from kale, garlic, pumpkin and homemade rice flours. I desperately need a great blender to make all sorts of healthy raw recipes for my blog.

  98. Divya

    Yummy and easy peasy brekkie everyday! Kale, Swiss chard and ginger shots, seasonal food smoothies…Also, this winter’s best thing to eat – nut butters!

  99. Melissa

    I would give the Vitamix a whirl by first making nut milks – almond, cashew and brazil nut.. Then I’d make my homemade peanut butter and my Morning Glory juice – kale, pineapple, cucumber & mint.

  100. amanda gorton

    ‘Naughty’ Chocolate mousse
    300g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
    3 eggs
    1/4 cup caster sugar
    1 tbs cocoa powder,
    300ml thickened cream

    Blended in my Vitamix to make a consistency that is light and fluffy yet extra smooth and creamy!

  101. Jackie Koller

    Smoothies for my toddlers.

  102. Kellie L McPherson

    “what would you create with your new vitamix if you won one?”
    This is what I would create.
    1 passion fruit no skin
    1 cup of berry juice
    handful of baby spinach
    2 oranges no skin
    2 carrots with skin
    2 apples with skin
    Mix and add water if need be.

  103. adele chenoweth

    i would become a pesto addict and smoothies every day for breakfast

  104. Bee

    I always wanted to make a raw cheesecake but my blender can’t do the nuts to the consistency that I need. So fingers crossed hopefully I will get to make it soon.

  105. Pia

    A lovely, nutritious mint, celery, carrot, watermelon and citrus vita boost!

  106. Jennifer B.

    I would grind my own whole grains and then add them to a fresh fruit smoothie.

  107. Genevieve

    I’d whip up an instant ice-cream made from frozen natural yoghurt, stewed pears, frozen banana and cinnamon. I’d finish it off by topping the creamy treat with a berry coulis and crushed almonds. Mmmm, the options are endless, anything could happen!

  108. rebecca

    If my dream came true and I owned a Vitamix I would make my ultimate green smoothie love. Spinach, celery, green apple and mint. Yum

  109. Charlotte

    Every imaginable nut butter!

  110. Courtney

    With my Vitamix I would make an energizing green smoothie of spinach, pineapple, strawberries, and chia seeds .

  111. Anna

    oh man what I wouldnt do with one of these. Raw soups, smoothies, nut butters, banana softserve, lassis yummmm

  112. claire

    I would start my day with a super healthy smoothie – apple, kale, ginger, coconut water, kiwi fruit and a squeeze of lime. I would end my day with healthy coconut ice cream. Think creamy coconut cream, a touch of coconut oil and a sprinkle of spice like cardamom or cinammon. Delish!

  113. Jessie

    Oh my, a Vitamix, yes please! I’d love to win, and the very first thing I would make would be a smoothie riff on a favourite juice combination of mine: pear and parsley. Lots of ripe pear and plenty of parsley fresh from the garden, then a handful of baby spinach to boost the chlorophyll, a big piece of cucumber and some celery for extra vitamins and depth of flavour, a little handful of fabulous raw almonds from Loving Earth, and to finish, a spoonful of chia seeds for some extra minerals and super omega action! Fresh, green, nutritious and delicious. Kapow! Ready for anything!

  114. Clare

    Wow- tough call to have to nominate just one dish. Given the chill is starting to set in for me it would have to be a steaming bowl of hot porridge. I would use the vitamix to make some fresh almond milk which would be used to cook the steel cut oats. I would then make a raspberry puree with a touch of cinnamon and swirl this through the porridge with a drizzle of pomegranate molasses and a sprinkle of molasses sugar. Heaven in a bowl.

  115. Ophelia

    I’d either try one of those crazy green juices (spinach, green apple, kiwi, kale, coconut water, ice) or make a totally absurdly crazy post-run smoothie (either: pineapple, maple syrup, raspberries, blueberries, natural yoghurt, ice and mint; OR cocoa powder, protein powder, yoghurt, nutella, shot of coffee and ice… nom)
