Today is your super lucky day!

We are thrilled to announce our Vitamix giveaway— which happens to be my favorite brand of blender. After years of blending with my $50 wedding present blender, I finally burnt out the motor and bought a Vitamix 5200 and fell in love.

It’s an amazing blender and one of the best financial investments I have made for my health. Some things are worth the splurge, and this is one of them. Jadah recently got a red Vitamix 5200 and is totally having fun blending her leafy greens into creamy goodness, too. So now it’s your turn— Are you ready to up your green smoothie game and win a Vitamix 5200?


5 Reasons I love my Vitamix

  1. Blends my leafy greens into a creamy green smoothie in 20 seconds
  2. Saves me time prepping produce (I can throw in whole pears, apples, carrots, oranges and not flinch)
  3. Comes with a “tamper” for times when I go a little crazy on the leafy greens and they get jammed in the container (the tamper safely pushes it down while still running)
  4. The BPA-free container is easy to clean and very durable
  5. Turns my frozen banana & frozen mango into a whipped treat in seconds


Are you ready to win the oh-so-awesome, super delicious red Vitamix 5200 Blender?

    Ever since January of this year i committed my self to eat no meats and start a vegan life style. When i added simplegreensmothies to my instagram you became part of my daily inspiration to eat mix and drink different ingredients to make deliciously nutritious smoothies which i love. And the 30 day challenge has been so much fun because every single day is an all different one! i don’t know what to expect for the next day and i love that. I feel much more alive and energetic now that i made this commitment to change my eating habits. I pray you keep inspiring others and that your followers increase by Millions. Thank you for sharing to the world your knowledge. Cheers to a conscious-healthy life!

    P.S. Another bonus: I used to suffer from bad acne and back-ne and ever since i changed my eating habits my face and back have cleared up, now i have clean skin and i am very happy about that! oh and before i forget…. My hair is much more shiny and i’ve noticed it’s growing faster!! I L<3VE SIMPLE GREEN SMOOTHIES!!!

    I love green juices and smoothies because they have made me feel better than I ever have in my entire life!! I can’t get enough. Dying for a Vitamix to make the journey even more awesome. Like blow my mind awesome. Doesn’t get much cooler than that. 😉

    I am new to green smoothies. So far,the best part is knowing that my two year old son is getting all the nutrients he needs. He loves the smoothies! I only have a small hand blender so my smoothie making process is a little more laborious. A vitamix would be amazing.

  6. Larissa 5.1.2013 at 7:15 pm #

    I love it!! Yes smoothies might be the first thing that comes to mind, green smoothies, yellow smoothies, red smoothies, but it is more than that – people forget that it is just an awesome blender!

    I LOVE green smoothies! They are the absolute easiest breakfast, snack, lunch… whatever I feel like in a given day. They make it possible for me to get all the healthy goodnesd into my body that I really need. As a bonus my skin & energy are awesome & my waistline is smaller. Yippee!!

    Almost a year ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, shortly after I lost my job! I became a stay at home mom (not by choice because I definitely needed the money but because I was not able to find a job :-/, During that time, I became a bit depressed because as much as I searched, I could NOT find a good job and taking care of a baby is a wonderful thing but it can be VERY stressful! In the last year, I put on an extra 25 lbs :( I knew it was time to make a change… I found your page, as I started searching for ways to become more healthy and hopefully lose a few pounds in the process… I have to admit it has been the BEST thing that happened to me and my family! I knew my hubby and kids needed to eat healthier and we had to increase our veggie intake., so we joined the 30 day challenge! My hubby and I swapped our usual greasy, fattening breakfast and lunch with a green smoothie and we have felt an AMAZING difference! We both have A LOT more energy, which I NEEDED chasing around after my toddler, and we both feel so much healthier! We have tried to get our kids to join in on the challenge and while my nine year old daughter loves some of the recipes, she doesn’t like how chunky some of them come out so she won’t drink them … same thing with my toddler! My cousin has a Vitamix and I tried making a green smoothie at her house and my kids LOVED them and actually drank them! My blender just doesn’t cut it! Owning a Vitamix is my dream so that I can continue this healthy challenge and nothing would make me happier than my kids joining in and drinking HEALTHY smoothies along with me! Sorry for such a long post!!!

    Vitamix has changed lives for the good for so many people! My friend has diverticulitis, and with the Vitamix he can now enjoy smoothies that include fruit and veggies he couldn’t before. The Vitamix pulverizes seeds so now he is able to acquire the vitamins and nutrients he couldn’t before! What a life change, thank you Vitamix!

    I have been drinking smoothies for a month now. I FEEL great. I have learned something, or maybe my eyes were opened. It is a simple truth, but perhaps like me it has not reached the head and the heart of those of you similiar to me. The truth that ONLY I can make the change I desire. The power is the choices I make, the thought I choose to have,and the habits I cultivate. Sometimes I feel as if I know it in the heart but the head chooses the wrong/unhealthy things. I want to add energy and health in any way that is in my power. This has been a great start for me.

    Simple green smoothie a simple idea that changed my Life

    Now that I have become a daily smoothie drinker, my children want to taste and invent new smoothies for them. In this video I’m making a desert smoothie: frozen redberries, strawberries, bettrot, banana , Rice milk vanilla
    As far as I’m concerned Green Smoothie evolved from a way of losing weight and diet to a really important part of our daily food for me and my family

    Since I discovered the exciting world of simple green smoothies and holistic health in general, I have not only become healthier, I have felt a growing passion to create and help others become healthier. I have always loved to cook and now it has grown into an adoration of the creative process that goes into the preparation of wholesome and nutritious foods, whether it be a curry, hummus, raw pasta dish or a simple green smoothie. I have been YEARNING for the promise of kale creamed to velvety perfection, the nut butters and the warm raw soups that the vitamix can provide. Alas, I am a college student and there is no way I can afford one. To be able to create without the limitations of my kitchen appliances would be so amazing and would help me achieve my aspirations of one day being a chef/nutritionist. I would be one happy happy girl making happy happy delicious green smoothies! Thanks for your consideration!

    Although I have been eating a raw diet for over 2 years, while drinking green smoothies daily, I have noticed increased health, energy, stamina and overall well being. They are also energizing, totally satisfying, easy,fun and delicious.

    Hello! Green smoothies have drastically changed my life! I’m in college and I have been eating horrible foods since its often readily available. I often felt sluggish and had little to no energy. I came across your website and began making my own green smoothies! This is the best thing I’ve ever done. I feel now more energized and I’m even doing better in school, since doing so. I have also made my friends into green smoothies lovers. We even have green smoothie parties and come up with new and exciting recipes!!.

  17. Robin 5.1.2013 at 9:15 am #

    I have always enjoyed fruit smoothies but I was never able to incorporate healthy “greens” into them and still have them taste decent enough to drink. Your recipes and tips have changed that! My fiancee (who would live on cookies and energy drinks if he could) has started asking me every day where his smoothie is! Even my four kids (ages 4-8) are on board. My six-year old son asked if I would make the “spinach smoothie” again after the very first one he tried. :) You truly have changed our lives with your recipes. My skin looks better and I feel better…and bonus, I get compliments on how I look 28, not 38! Thank you, thank you!!!

    I am so glad I started doing the green smoothie challenge! Such an easy way to become healthier and they all taste so yummy!!! I don’t drink as much coffee as I used to and I find myself making healthier choices throughout the day. I can’t wait until my local farmers market opens!

  19. Megan Schwarze 5.1.2013 at 9:09 am #

    Green smoothies have helped me go go from healthy to healthful! Starting everyday with a green smoothie has given me energy, made my skin/hair more fabulous and helped me to make good nutritional choices all day! I love feeling the pureness of the smoothies so much that I have converted my family into rawkstars as well! What started as a 30 day “challenge” has turned into a delicious lifestyle! Thank you green smoothies! The only thing that could make the experience better would be a Vitamix!

    I have been drinking green smoothies for about 4 months now. My husband had a stroke at the beginning of March and having a smoothie for breakfast and afternoon snack has given me the energy I need to help with his rehab & keeping the home fires burning. Some days are longer than others but I’m able to cope with all that’s going on.

  21. Marcie Reeter 5.1.2013 at 8:58 am #

    I love them! I seriously have not felt this healthy in a very long time. I’m trying to get my family started now and enjoying my weekends at the local farmer’s markets. Thanks!

    I have been drinking green smoothies for the past two months, and people have been commenting on my skin and how glowing and clear it is. I also feel I have loads more energy and less cravings for foods that are not so good for me. I even managed to get my kids and my man drinking them, everybody loves them and wants to know what combo the next one I make will be.

    FIVE Reasons why I LOVE my Vitamix.
    1. OMG, I can make any type of smoothie imaginable. If you have an imagination, the smoothie world is full of possibilities.
    2. Nut Butters. I now make my own nut butters. I can’t believe the ease and power of the Vitamix.
    3. Soups…. I have been creating all types of soups from Broccoli White Bean to Tomato Basil….
    4. Clean Up: Amazingly easy. Whoever invented this tool… Great Job
    5. Infused Water: I now have flavored water available all the time in my refrigerator using my Vitamix and a few fruits and greens.

    I can’t imagine what will be next.

    I love the simple green smoothies. Recipes are awesome. I work overnights in an emergency room And since I’ve started these smoothies I have so much energy I don’t have to drink as much coffee or red bull. Love love love them

    I have been replacing simple green smoothies with my usual breakfast, which usually consists of doughnuts, breakfast burritos, and anything else that is NOT good for you. I have noticed a significant change in my energy levels throughout the day. Starting the day off with a green smoothie had made me feel so much better during the day, not the usual tired and sluggish. I have dropped a few pounds and my face has cleared up a lot. Thanks to the ppl at simple green smoothie for inspiring me to be a healthier person!!
