Superfood Vanilla Latte & The Ultimate Kitchen Giveaway

   Some promises are too good to be true. Like, "Send us $200 and we'll send you a million dollars, plus a car and a vacation to Tahiti . Trust me, I may sound Jamaican, but I work for the New York Lottery." Unfortunately that one is going around. So is "Trust us, rub these chemicals on your face twice a day and you'll look like Athena, or at least Angelina Jolie."
   What they don't tell you?
"Large molecules such as collagen applied to the skin cannot penetrate and cannot reach the dermis where wrinkles originate." Source
     So instead of getting rid of wrinkles, you're probably just giving yourself cancer.
     But what if you could drink coffee in the morning and fight wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks and scars, relieve joint pain, remineralize your teeth, balance your hormones, aid digestion, boost metabolism to burn fat and strengthen hair and nails? (source, source). That's quite a promise, but fortunately the research supports this one.

   This is my favorite way to make coffee at home. It tastes delicious and has that thick, creamy foam on top that sticks to your lip. This recipe makes enough for two large, or three modest sized mugs.

Superfood Vanilla Latte
Combine all ingredients into a blender and process until light and creamy. Pour into cups and sprinkle with additional ground cinnamon if desired.
     Don't have a nice blender? Well you can win a Vitamix with the giveaway below! I've teamed up with some bloggers to offer an amazing deal. The winner gets to choose from a Vitamix, CIA Series, an All-Clad 10 piece stainless steel cookware set, a Bosch Universal Plus Mixer with Blender, or a $500 Amazon gift card.

All- Clad Stainless Steel Cookwear
   Did you know that toxic fumes from non-stick pans are strong enough to kill small animals? Stainless steel is a great alternative. This set comes complete with two frying pans, two saucepans, a saute pan and a stockpot! All- Clad offers a safe cookware option as their steel is anodized, so as long as the cookware remains chip-free, no metals will leach into your food.
This set is valued at $499.95!

Vitamix CIA
    I've been wanting one of these for year and finally got one for Christmas. I use it at least once a day to make lattes, hummus, breakfast smoothies, eggnog, poppy seed dressing, chocolate banana soft serve and so much more. I've used a ninja for the past few years and the purees are chunky compared to the velveety smoothness that emerges from the Vitamix.
The Vitamix CIA Professional Series is valued at $498.95!

Bosch Universal Plus Mixer With Blender
    This mixer with 4 speed settings includes wire whips, dough hook, bowl, splash ring and
blender! I don't have this particular brand of mixer, but It's supposed to give the popular Kitchen Aid a run for it's money. And you get a two-for-one deal with this because it comes with the blender!
This Bosch Mixer is valued at $469.98!

Amazon Gift Card
     And lastly, should none of the other prizes scream out "pick me!" to you,  opt for the gift card and get whatever you want.
Valued at $500

    1. I searched your name on Pinterest and you don't come up! =(

    2. Randy, Go to the top of the article. On the right there are a line of icons for Email, Pinterest, Facebook, Google + and Twitter. Click on the Pinterest button to follow.....

    3. Randy, for some reason the hyperlinks I had included in the instructions weren't highlighted. It's now fixed. You can use the icons at the very top right of the page, or click on the red hyperlinks in the instructions. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the give-away, Jamie! I'd have to go with the Amazon gift card. I already have a Vita-Mix, I have cookware I love and I don't see needing another blender/mixer machine. :)

  4. Amazon GC would be awesome!

  5. I would choose the Amazon gift card as we are in need of a dehydrator & pressure canner. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway. Sheryl

  6. I would choose the gift card.

  7. Some maca and lucuma powder would be tasty in there too. Thanks for the recipe and the chance to win!

  8. I would probably pick the gift card. :)
