I’m bored of doing the same old “leave a comment, enter to win” giveaways all the time. And the Pancake Roll Up challenge of a few months ago was so much fun that I thought we could do something similar this time: Sundae-style!

.

Magic Bullet Contest

Yes, it’s a bit more complicated than the easy-peasy “leave a comment” giveaways.

BUT this also means that your chances of winning increase by quite a lot, since you’ll probably be competing only against 20 or so others as opposed to hundreds.

So it might just be worth the extra effort :).

.

Rules:

Make and blog about a Breakfast Sundae. (Read below for ideas.)

Or, if you don’t have a blog, send me a photo (and then leave a comment, so I can ensure I received your email). Bloggers get three entries, because it takes more effort to write a post than send an email.

Sundae School

The way I see it, a good ice cream sundae has three things:

whipped cream (especially good with the whipped cream trick!), sprinkles, and chocolate sauce. So, naturally, the same rule should follow for an oatmeal “breakfast sundae.”

.

Ideas for the makings of a breakfast sundae:

Whipped Cream

.

Sprinkles

  • slivered almonds
  • raisins
  • actual sprinkes
  • shredded coconut
  • cinnamon or cocoa dust
  • raw oats

.

Optional add-ins:

.

And don’t forget the chocolate syrup! (Melted PMS chocolate)

Recap of the Giveaway Rules:

Blog about a Breakfast Sundae, linking back to the Breakfast Sundae post.

That’s it! :) (Or send me an email, if you don’t have a blog)

Contest ends in TWO weeks.

  3. Darn it! I would love to win a Magic Bullet, but alas, the concept of a breakfast sundae sounds disgusting to me :( Just can’t do it. I really dislike the textural thing when you add nut butters or other mentioned to oatmeal – I know, I seem to be out on my own! Always next time!

    If so, I’ll do another one and blog about it on my next post :3

    Also, I wonder if an ACTUAL sundae eaten at breakfast would count? xD

  15. Raquel says:

    Hey Katie, I’ve been flirting with vegetarianism, but haven’t made the move. So I guess my question is: does the sundae have to be vegan? I can make it so easily! But I wanted to know if it was required, out of curiosity. Thanks!

  17. Raquel,
    Good question! It definitely does NOT have to be vegan. I’ve chosen to live my life as a vegan, but that doesn’t mean I would ever force my lifestyle onto someone else. (Haha, if I tried, my mom, dad, and sister would put me back in my place ASAP!)

  41. I am SO on this. Making a super sexy sundae 😉 It’ll be on my blog very soon, and I’ll let you know when it is!

    1. I just wrote up my post! :) here’s a link: http://cleaneatsinthedirtysouth.wordpress.com/2010/07/24/one-sexy-fruit/
      I really hope I can score a magic bullet. I won’t lie – I’m a cheap college student. When my previous green monster makin smoothie died last semester, I didn’t want to buy a new one unless it had a good reputation. And I didn’t have enough cash for that… and I still don’t. But I can’t tell you how handy a magic bullet would be… I’m the food chair in my dorm, so I’m responsible for cooking for over 150 people for dorm events during the year. Needless to say… a blender would be SO handy!

    Hi Katie,

    Just made a quick post about my “breakfast sundae”! http://jennyonajourney.wordpress.com/2010/07/27/precursor-to-a-post/

    Not sure I entirely understand how one of us goes about actually winning… but clearly many of us are truly dying to get our hands on a Magic Bullet, haha. 😛

    Thanks for holding such a great giveaway! Looking forward to the results, whatever they may be. :)

    And finally I’ll leave! lol. I love your blog, you give such great advice on how to stay grounded when it comes to food. IT’s so easy for people to go off the wagon with dieting and I think society’s depiction of how women should look doesn’t aid the matter. Breakfast sundae’s can be super healthy and a wonderful alternative to a heavy breakfast! Also we all know breakfast can be lunch or dinner also so wahoo to that!
