    That’s so cute! I’m very happy for you.
    I’ve briefly read about what the Vita-Mix can do. I look forward to seeing your creations.
    It looks like the chia seeds were completely ground into a powder. Were they?

    I am jealous – that is no nincompoop post but the post of a woman who is very wise with her money – and now I will be jealous at all the recipes you post with your vitamix – except when you put coconut butter over your smoothie – I have had ice magic and it was just amazing and I have had a bad coconut butter experience recently so I know which I would prefer

    squeal! How very very exciting!!!!!

  4. Emma

    Baaaah! More jealousy. You had better make something damn delicious for the wedding!!

    Three words. Chocolate Coconut Butter. Do it.

  6. Alexis @ There She Goes

    Mmmm, come to my house with your vita and make me that smoothie please!

    So much love! You look like a kid at Christmas. Grandparents are awesome and I can’t wait to see what you whip, blitz , puree and blend up. And I love your lemon scale in lemon yellow!

  8. Fiona

    oooh very cool.

  9. Teresa @ Teresa Tastes & Travels

    Yay for your new super-blender!!

    PS…I may try your smoothie recipe and if I do (brace yourself), I’ll likely toss in a couple of scoops of post-workout protein supplement powder. Can we still be friends? 😉

    Congratulations, and welcome to the VitaMix cult! I sure do love mine, and I know that you’ll become just as addicted in no time. 😉

    Happy New Year to you too!

    Oh how fantastic. Grandparents are the best. Yours seem especially wonderful. I’ve only recently heard of the Vitamix, I’ll be interested to see what you do with it. I’ve been in the precontemplation stage of a new device for some time. I have a blender that is newish, that I don’t use all that much I guess. And my food processor is a Big Oscar that I bought as a student in the early 90s! Still going strong. I am vaguely toying with the notion of something else. I spent far too long as a student though to just merely buy a new one and throw the old one out- thus here I am waiting for my non-breaking Big Oscar to break, and also our tele to break so that I can get a new one. I do love the look of the smoothie. It looks fabulous. I love raspberry. I’m still not completely sold on the coconut oil thing though.

    HUG that box!

  13. Lizzi

    If I supply you with the nuts, will you make me nut butters!? Pleaaaaaaase? I promise you can keep some for yourself 🙂

    I’ve heard such great things about this but have yet to try my own!

    Ahh! I am so happy for you, Hannah! So special. How very generous of your grandparents and Robyn 🙂 I can’t wait to try this creation, it looks super duper delicious!

    haha! Hands down the best Xmas gift ever…for a foodie of course! Congrats

  17. Agnes

    Yay you! With the thing you’ll be purchasing today, you’ll be raw-ing it up in no time!

  18. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe there’s something utterly charming about being a nincompoop. Actually I like the sound of “the unrepentant nincompoop”. Sounds like a good book title no? 😉

    From what I’ve heard, this is the blender to end all blenders, and you very well may never need to buy another. So, if you’ve got the money, it’s totally worth the investment. I’m very jealous of your beautiful new appliance. I can’t decide if I would get a cuisinart or a vitamix first. If I had endless money and space, I would definitely get both….

    1. theresa

      And, by cuisinart, of course I mean kitchenaid. I’m the nincompoop!

  20. Anna Johnston

    OMG, I was beside myself thinking you’ve indulged in a Thermomix & I was about dash around to sit on your doorstep until you let me in so I could admire.., several problems with this as I don’t know where you live for one thing but then you tell me its a Kitchen Aid….., which still earns you seriously BIG brownie points, conjures up green eyed monsters within me & I completely understand your excitement. Your really getting into this raw thing huh.., go you good thing 🙂

  21. K

    Ohhh, how exciting!

    where did you get it from? Our blender is pretty broken and it’s my birthday in March 🙂

  22. Susan: My Food Obsession

    I think you just sold me a Vita-Mix!

    I want one!!

  23. GirlonRaw

    Darling sooo happy for you with your new purchase!!! This is really exciting!!!! I am sending you through some more recipes now mmmm K 🙂

  24. Lauren

    Don’t hate on your lack of presentability too much, because that dress looks a lot like MY Christmas dress, which is pretty darn fashionable in my opinion!

  25. Alisa Fleming

    OMG, I hope you can hear the extreme envy I am typing this with right now. A Vitamix, so much fun!

    Lucky you! One day, when I am living my fairy-tale perfect life in my dream kitchen, I will have a Vita Mix. In the meantime, I might just have to come to Australia to borrow yours. 🙂

  28. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Oh my gosh oh my gosh! Me = so happy for you! Best use of X-mas money EVER.

    And good call on the raspberry smoothie components, mega-yum.

    Though I will say: I just stopped on the final picture, turned to Matt, and asked “Do you think I should tell her what the coconut butter drizzled on there really looks like?” Either way, it’d be worth giggling like a schoolgirl for. 😉 !

    […] of you who’ve been with me for a while would know, I bought a Vita-Mix earlier this year in a post-Christmas haze of gift-glory. I loved the expensive blighter then, and I love the expensive blighter now. However, due to a […]
