Our story. Our mission.

 

With every journey, there’s always a beginning…

Ours began on a playground in Studio City, California. We were first-time moms in the same play group and loved having the support of other mamas. Over the years, our lives got busier and we moved across country from each other. We had more kids, our days got shorter and more chaotic, and our meals got quicker and less healthy. It got to a place where we both felt like all the energy had been sucked out of our bodies, yet we still had to get up, get dressed, take care of our kids and survive the long day. Even worse, we didn’t have that community to rely on any more.

We needed a lot more energy than our bodies seemed capable of—we were experiencing the effects of the Standard American Diet (SAD). And then we discovered green smoothies, loved the taste and were instantly hooked. It was seriously love at first sip!

That’s when we went from being exhausted and defeated—to being energized and empowered. It blew our minds that one simple change could make such an impact in our lives.

The more we drank green smoothies…

the more fruits and veggies our bodies craved. It was like, “yes, give me more of that please.” We are two busy moms who became obsessed with green smoothies. We’d blend a daily batch of fruit smoothies packed with fresh leafy greens for our entire families. We realized that this was not another diet (we’ve both tried many). This green smoothie obsession was the kickstart to a healthier lifestyle. We both started feeling better about our bodies and about what we were putting in our kids’ bodies too.

With the results we were getting, we knew we couldn’t keep our recipes to ourselves.

We were super excited to share this healthy habit with our family and friends. So we decided to put it out there to the world. Instagram is where Simple Green Smoothies was born (follow @simplegreensmoothies) and word began spreading fast about our delicious recipes and beautiful photos. From there, we started a free 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge and have had over 1 million people join us for it (click here to join our next one!).

We’ve seen people balance their blood sugar, get off their blood pressure medications, become healthier and closer with their families, lose weight without trying, have more energy, and feel better in their bodies.

And it all starts with Simple Green Smoothies.

    Many thanks and I love that I joined this site.

    Hi,

    Just got connected. I am looking forward to the weekly recipes. In the meantime, I have ordered some super foods via the links provided. Question. How many daily meals should I substitute with a smoothie?

    Thanks,

    Olga

      Hi Olga,

      We’re so excited to have you blendin’ with us! We suggest replacing up to two meals with a Simple Green Smoothie. If you decide to use green smoothies as a meal replacement we suggest adding protein + healthy fats to ensure you’re getting a complete meal. Here are some of our favorite meal replacement boosters…
