Smoothie Time + Blender Giveaway

I decided to make smoothies as a post-Halloween “candy detox” and pre-holiday food coma. We’re in this small window of time where all of the good Halloween candy has run out, yet the holiday baked goodies aren’t yet being brought to the office on a daily basis. It’s the perfect time to blend smoothies and soups and get all of your vitamins and nutrients in before the holidays!

And making creamy smoothies with fresh fruit and vegetables just got a little easier with Wolf Gourmet’s High Performance Blender. In fact, I loved this blender so much that I’ve become a Wolf Gourmet ambassador and I’m giving one away! This blender retails at $800, and you can read all of the impressive details about its performance here.  [Details on how to enter the giveaway below]

This powerful blender has a large pitcher, yet easily fits on your countertop. I love the size of the blender—especially for making soups. When I make soup, I want to make 4-6 servings at a time, and this blender can handle that with room to spare.

It blends the toughest leafy vegetables with a quiet finesse and minimal liquid, leaving your smoothies creamy and nutrient-dense.  It also does a fantastic job making soups and makes child’s play out of nut butters. I can’t wait to continue to experiment with this awesome blender!

Details on how to enter the giveaway are below. And you can find this blender at Williams-Sonoma.


There are two ways to enter:

(1) Leave a comment here and list the first thing you want to blend: smoothies, soup, anything! (Be sure to leave your email address—it will not be posted publicly!)


(2) Leave a comment on this Instagram post, tagging a friend you want to blend with and follow @FoodieInNewYork and @WolfGourmet.


You must be over 18 and the blender can only be shipped to a U.S. address. The drawing will close on November 10th at 11:59pm. The winner will be announced on November 11th.

This giveaway is generously sponsored by Wolf Gourmet.

    I would love to blend various green smoothies. I eat a lot of junk food daily because I work long hours and am often stuck with catered fast food. A smoothie would be the only way I get fruits and veggies in my diet.

      Yes to smoothies! ??

  • Funmi SAYS | November 5, 2017

    I actually used to be afraid of smoothies. The idea of mixing veggies with fruit scared me off a bit. Then the summer happened. It became my GO TO in a pinch. More smoothies please! Now I can’t wait to try making soups!

    • Foodie In New York SAYS | November 6, 2017

      Yes to fruit AND veggies in smoothies!

  • Lynne T SAYS | November 8, 2017

    I’d love to make some Gazpacho soup in it.

    • Foodie In New York SAYS | November 10, 2017

      Sounds delish!

  • Melody Pelton SAYS | November 10, 2017

    I would make smoothies for breakfast, soup for lunch and ice cream for dessert.

    First thing I’d make is crepe batter for a crepe cake to be served at Christmas.
