RAWesome Blendtec + Thrive Market GIVEAWAY!


It’s that time again, rawkstar!

To celebrate yet another month of yummy green goodness with our 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge, we’re thrilled to announce an all-new giveaway just for you (you know we love you to the moon and back)!

We’re giving away the ultimate rawkstar goody bag:
a high-speed Blendtec blender + a $500 gift card to Thrive Market

This combo of top tier goodies is the perfect way to step up your green smoothie game. You can fill your pantry with Thrive Market’s scrumptious-GMO-free superfoods like coconut oil, and chia seeds, and whip it all up in your Blendtec blender to make the smoothest smoothies on the block.

Get all the details about this yummy giveaway below! But first…


Why we heart Blendtec + Thrive Market!

1:: Blendtec Blender

BLENDTEC = high-speed blending b-l-i-s-s.  Standing a snug 15.5” tall, these space-saving high-speed blenders are the ultimate in… well… blending tech!

Multitaskers rejoice: because these babies will save you time too. Just push one of its pre-programmable buttons, and walk away while your spinach and kale whirl into incredible green pulp. The Blendtec whips up deliciously light, airy, “extra smooth” smoothies – and its square shape makes it a total breeze to clean.

We reached out to Blendtec about sharing one of their fantastic models to someone in our community – and we were thrilled when they gave us a big green YES! We really dig these blenders, and we know you will too.


2:: Thrive Market

THRIVE = our go-to resource for our fave superfoods, because they do the “healthy research” for you. Thrive Market is an online market on a mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone. They proudly stock over 4,000+ popular organic, GMO-free products at around 40% below traditional prices.

How crazy cool is that?

They only carry certified organic, non-GMO products that have been ethically sourced. And, for every member that signs up, Thrive also gifts a membership to a low-income family, school teacher, veteran or student. #givingbackrocks

Now, Thrive is partnering up with us, with a $500 gift card (and liftetime membership) for one lucky rawkstar.

    I just want to thank you Jen & Jadah for all the wonderful smoothie recipes. It is just great of you to give us all the ingredients and ideas that we need. My husband of 53 years and I have a smoothie every morning. We are wondering if we could add a scoop of whey protein once in a while, maybe 3 times a week. We both look forward to a different taste each morning.

    Why Not use a plant based protein powder? It’s much better for you!

    I just want to thank you for all the great recipes. You guys have given me ideas on how to make Smoothies because I was using the same ingredients but now I learned that I can be creative and add more greens 🙂

    I drink a smoothie every day in the morning, and lately I have switched them from fruit to more celery, cucumber, aloe, spinach and chard. Not quite as tasty, but sooo good for me! LIFE CHANGE WITH SMOOTHIES! 😉
