WIN a KitchenAid Diamond Blender & Berry Smoothie Recipe #KADiamondBlender

Blenders have become the bane of my existence! There is nothing more frustrating that trying to whip up a Mocktail or smoothie only to have the ice caught in the blade of a blender. Usually I have to unplug the thing and begin prying the ice out to get things moving. It’s definitely a first world problem but one that could easily raise my blood pressure far too high. KitchenAid recently tasked me with testing out the new KitchenAid Diamond Blender and I was amazed to see that I just couldn’t jam this sucker up!


As of today I’ve made 3 smoothie recipes, 2 Mocktails and many purees using ice and not once did it jam. This is a gorgeous machine and it performs wonderfully!

Recipes Made with KitchenAid Diamond Blender

Last week I shared two recipes 20 second smoothie recipes with you which I made using the KitchenAid Diamond Blender. The first was the Energy Boost Smoothie which was in the recipe card which came with my blender. It is a gorgeous blend of fruits to fuel you up!

 The second is the Good for You Green Smoothie, this recipe also came with the blender and I must admit I wish I’d tried a green smoothie sooner because it’s delicious!

  1. the energy boost smoothie the pineapple love pineapple, I guess its pineapple for both lol I love pineapple and strawberry smoothies.

  2. I absolutely love raspberries and love that they are in your Fruit smoothie recipe, but I think it rocks that pineapple features in both the fruit smoothie and the good for you green smoothie. Having pineapple in the green smoothie definitely makes me want to try it out!

  3. My fave ingredient in the Energy Boost is banana and in the Green Smoothie it would be the cucumber! Both look and sound delicious. Thanks!

  4. Favorite ingredient is always the banana. Can’t have a good smoothie without it :) – Energy Boost
    Favorite ingredient is pineapple. – Good for you green (have to admit, I didn’t think about adding a cucumber for a smoothie, I’ve had spinach in them though)

  5. I would have to say raspberries for sure! I make smoothies almost every day for my daughters and I. We love berry smoothies with banana and yogurt (and I add spinach in theirs without them knowing!!) Would love to win this blender!! Thanks for the chance!

  6. I love that you used pineapple in both smoothies. I also like that your green smoothie doesn’t have spinach in it as my son is allergic. This will be the first green smoothie that i can make for him!

  7. Great blender, love smoothies with almond milk and fresh fruit from our garden and your ideas for pineapple and rasberries

  8. They both sound good. The one common ingredient that I really love is pineapple. Fresh pineapple is the best in smoothies and adds so much great flavour.

  9. I love strawberries and bananas but I also love to add spinach to make the smoothie even healthier and it doenst even taste bad!

  10. My fav in the energy recipe is pineapple..mmm love love pineapple one of my favourite fruits! My fav in the Good for You smoothis without a doubt, the kiwi! Another fine fine fruit!

  11. I entered your giveaway.
    It would be great to WIN a KitchenAid Diamond Blender.
    In response to your requirement to Check out your Energy Boost Smoothie
    and your Good for You Green Smoothie and tell you my favourite ingredient in the comments below.
    My favourite ingredient is the banana.
    Thank you for having this great giveaway!!!!!!!!!!

  12. My fave ingredient in the Energy Boost is banana and in the Green Smoothie it would be the pineapple! Both sound delicious.

  13. Okay I’ve finally started to get off my ass and help out in the kitchen and I find I’m now craving all these cool gadgets.

    Personally I just love bananas in smoothies, that’s number one, the rest I can play with.

  14. The Kiwi, Cucumber and Pineapple! What an Awesome Combo! Definitely need to try this one! Thanks for the share!

  15. Hello,
    Thank you for these generious giveaway, my favorite ingredient in the first smootie are the pineapple and the second smootie i love the cucumbers;)

  16. I LOVE that you use honey in your smoothies. I use honey in place of sugar and syrup whenever I can. I also love that you use bananas…a great source of potassium and a wonderful treat.

  17. Raspberries would be my favourite ingredient in the Energy Boost Smoothie and Kiwi in the Good for You Green Smoothie

  18. My favorite ingredient in the Green Smoothie is the pineapple chunks,and my fav in the Energy Boost Fruit Smoothie is the banana~~ They both sound really yummy!

  19. For the Energy Boost Fruit Smoothie I love all the ingredients except banana. Just never really liked them. I am sure that it would still be good with the other ingredients as I like all of them in particular the strawberries and Greek yogurt.

    The Good for You Green Smoothie is certainly interesting. I do like all of the ingredients but am very curious about how cucumber would taste with everything else. Mind you, now they make many more juices that contain both fruit and vegetables so it would likely appeal to me even though it seems odd. I do love pineapple and kiwi so that would likely overpower the vegetable flavour. I guess I better try them both out and make an educated decision. ;-)

  20. Energy Boost Fruit Smoothie- I love that you used almond milk & raspberries & banana’s I”m not to thrilled about the pineapple, but I bet you can ‘t even taste them in the smoothie. I would of never realized to use almond milk in a smoothie I will deff. have to try that. I love everything about your energy boost smoothie it looks so delicious.

    Good for You Green Smoothie- Looks a little interesting I love that you used kiwi & honey not so sure about the cucumbers, but something different. I will have to try!

  21. I love the raspberries in the Energy Boost Smoothie. Yum! =) In the Good for you Green Smoothie I love the cucumbers.
    Thanks for the giveaway! =)

  22. My favorite ingredient in the Energy Boost Smoothie is the raspberries and my favorite in the Good for You Green Smoothie is the pineapple chunks

  23. My favorite ingredient in both smoothies is the pineapple. I can’t wait to try them both. Thanks for the giveaway. I love the pink blender.

  24. Almond Milk…
    I’ll bet the addition of the almond milk makes the Energy Boost smoothie extra creamy.
    Sometimes fruit with high water content can make (for lack of a more clever adjective) a watery drink.
    Very smart to use the almond milk … and it has so many wonderful vitamin alphabets.

    p.s. I heart pineapple too – have to say that or they may vote me off the island (berlygirlmaui)

  25. My favourite ingredient is always the fruit, especially raspberries. I hope to win your fabulous blender so I can make these amazing smoothies. Thanks, for having this awesome contest.

  26. My fave ingredient is Pineapple which I really love. I also like that you have used Almond milk which I have started drinking a few months ago. Your two smoothie drinks sound really good and I will try them both.

  27. i would like to try the green smoothie ( kiwi and pineapples – yum!) because i usually make smoothies with berries and such.
    the green one sounds very refreshing.

  28. I use kale, avocado, and a blackberry/raspberry/blueberry mix, with coconut water……….gives me lots of energy for a busy morning at work

  29. Both those smoothies sound delicious. I’m a huge fan of cucumbers and add them to pretty much all of my smoothies or juice. Also love banana!

  30. My favorite ingredient is the almond milk, which is high in B12. However, I don’t drink it straight up and only occasionally use it for cereal. I would love work this into my diet at least a few times a week.

  31. I think that both the Energy Boost Fruit Smoothie, and the Good for you Green smoothie would be hits in my home!
    The Green Smoothie:
    1 cup cucumbers, diced
    1 cup pineapple chunks
    1 kiwi
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/2 cup ice
    1 cup water

    All of that would be super good, I’d probably add in some crushed almonds for fun.
    My old blender just bit the dust in May, so my 1 year old doesn’t even get smoothies at home. Thanks so much for the chance! (fingers crossed)

  32. I can’t really choose just one. I like them all. However if I was to choose just one it would be the banana in the Energy Boost and the pineapple in the Good for You Smoothies.
