HOW GREEN SMOOTHIES MAKE YOUR LIFE AWESOME

Once you start fueling your body with more leafy greens, veggies, and fruit in a daily green smoothie, the rawesome results will begin to unfold. Here are some of our favorite health benefits that you can experience by drinking a daily green smoothie.  

INCREASED ENERGY. Green smoothies give you extra pep in your step. The actual blending process breaks down plant cell walls, making it easier for your body to absorb and use the nutrients.  

GLOWING SKIN. A diet high in leafy greens means you are loading up on chlorophyll, which helps purge toxins from the inside out, replenishes cells, and restores the skin quickly. Get your glow on with healthy, happy skin.  

SHARPER CLARITY AND FOCUS. The combination of high-fiber leafy greens and fruit gives you steady, stable, consistent energy. Say adios to brain fog and hello to quick wit and focus!  

STRENGTHENED IMMUNE SYSTEM. Blending fruits and veggies that are high in vitamins A and C boosts the immune system, which is your body’s natural defense system against infections and viruses. Leafy greens support the lymphatic system, flush out toxins, and reduce inflammation.  

REGULAR BOWEL MOVEMENTS. Oh yes, we said it! The fiber found in green smoothies acts as an internal broom to help digested food inside your body “move along.” We’re all for regular bathroom trips and less digestive discomfort throughout the day. Over time, regular bowel movements can help with bloating, acne, and weight loss. Holla!  

WEIGHT LOSS. Green smoothies are loaded with nutrients and packed with fiber, which all aid in weight loss. Plus, fiber and healthy fats keep you full and energized, making working out even more doable. Oftentimes, green smoothie rawkstars lose weight without even trying. Now that’s what we call a happy side effect!

Meet Jen Hansard, co-founder of Simple Green Smoothies and #1 best-selling author

When I started blending green smoothies for my family, I was on a mission to find a way to make these smoothies affordable since we were on unemployment and without health insurance. I blended ingredients that were easy to find, affordable and tasted great so my kids would drink them. That's what the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge is all about. Healthy, affordable and tasty recipes for everyone.

Fun facts: With all the energy I got from my daily green smoothies, I was able to go after my passions. In 2016, I took flying lessons and was able to soar through the skies in a Cessna 152. In 2017, I ran a 100k trail run (that’s 62 miles!) drinking green smoothies along the way. I am sharing all of this NOT to brag, but to tell you that I never would have dreamed of all this before drinking my first green smoothie— and my hope is that you give my recipes a chance to change your life for the better too! — Jen

Simple & Tasty Recipes for All Ages!

One of the most beautiful things about our green smoothies is how simple they are—anyone can blend them! Whether you've been blending green smoothies for years or have never even tasted one, this new year journey is perfect for you.

"I started drinking green smoothies 2 or 3 years ago when I first found your green smoothie challenge. Since then, I've had green smoothies for breakfast about every other day. The biggest surprise was that I could not taste the greens in the smoothies." —Kim Schupp

"I feel that green smoothies give me the perfect boost whenever I need it with a kick of nutrition and an added bonus of hydration!" —Jetta Garrity

Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I only drink green smoothies for 30 days? Can I eat food too? You can eat regular meals during this challenge. This is not a fast or a restrictive diet. We are making healthy lifestyle changes that will last a lifetime! Replace 1 or 2 meals with green smoothies and eat healthy clean meals and snacks the rest of the day.

2. What kind of food should I be eating during the challenge? Just by drinking green smoothies daily (without even changing your regular diet), you are moving in the right direction towards healthy eating. You can keep the rest of your normal diet the same, yet you can take it a step further! We suggest you eat real food that’s free of processed sugar and avoid ingredients that you can’t pronounce. We have an amazing 7-Day Reset that will transform your eating habits and daily meals. You can learn all about it here: Thrive: A 7-Day Reset.  

3. Are these recipes vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, etc.? All of these recipes are vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free! That's because they only inlude plant-based ingredients: leafy greens, fruits, veggies, water, and occasionally almond/coconut milk. Some smoothie recipes use dairy milk, yogurt, or added sweeteners, and we never suggest that in our recipes. If you MUST add them to your smoothie, then go for it, but try sticking to plant-based ingredients for this challenge if you can. You might surprise yourself!

4. Will I have to make a new recipe for each day? We want to keep this challenge fun, affordable and simple. We don’t want to overwhelm beginners with exhaustive shopping lists and fancy hard-to-find ingredients. Although we’ve included up to five new recipes for each week, these are just suggestions. Feel free to make any green smoothie recipe you like, as long as it’s packed with leafy greens, fruit, and water (or other nutritious liquid)—or create your own! And if you find a few recipes that you really love, feel free to repeat them as often as you like, so long as you pay attention to your greens rotation.  

5. Do I have to use frozen fruit if a recipe calls for it? Fresh is always best, yet not crucial. Depending on the season and where you live, you might be best buying frozen (just watch for additives!). Personally, we like to use one frozen fruit in all our smooties to chill it down (we freeze bananas regularly). You can also use ice cubes to make it colder - just know it’s not as friendly on your blender blades as frozen fruit is.  

6. Do I need a certain blender to make these smoothies? You don’t need a fancy blender to make our smoothies– any blender will do. We want green smoothies to be available to everyone no matter what their budget is, so please don’t feel like you need an expensive blender to join the challenge. If you’re using a less powerful blender, one tip to avoid ending up with a glass full of leafy chunks is to blend your leafy greens and water together first until you get a juice-like consistency. Then add the remaining ingredients and blend again. For more information, read this article on cheap blender options.  

7. How much does this challenge cost? The 30-Day Green Snoothie Challenge is completely free! We provide the tasty recipes, weekly shopping lists and community support- you just sign up and start blending! Green smoothies are our passion and we want to make the entire world healthier and happier- which is where our free 30-Day Challenge comes in. Of course, you’ll have to hit the grocery store and pay for your own groceries, which varies depending on where you shop. 

8. How many servings do your recipes make? Each recipe in this challenge makes one serving, and the shopping lists have enough ingredients to make each recipe once. If others in your household are joining you, then just double (or triple!) the amounts listed.

9. I am allergic to bananas, pineapple, mango, etc... What can I substitute with? Swap in another fruit that you love. Maybe an avocado? Peach? Pear? Or double up on another ingredient in the smoothie recipe that you can eat. If you aren’t allergic to berries, one of our favorite replacement ingredients is frozen mixed berries. Try some of our favorite banana-free green smoothie recipes, click here.  

10. How many calories are in each smoothie? We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You will find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Two great resources for tracking calories are the phone apps My Fitness Pal and Lose It.
