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 have started the green smoothie a month or so ago. Since two others have joined me so receiving the new blendtec would make everything so much better and easier

    I’m really excited. This is a very generous give-a-way. I sooo hope to win. Life in the kitchen would never be the same. A blender like that is way out of my grasp right now. Hey, but if I don’t, I’ve still benefited from all the tips, information and inspiration I’ve gained from this website to finally do what is in my grasp to better my health and my life. Thanks Jen & Jadah!

    After 6 days fasting with only coconut water – today the first thing with taste was this green smoothie

    Avocado, water spinach, Mango, Mora, cinnamon – and it tasted sooooo yummy….

    A good blender would be awesome to get rid of the chunks….mine is still leaving in there.

    Good luck to all
    Love, pray and rawk it.
    Pura vida

    Just want to add that you are doing a great job. I’m a lifestyle educator and agree with your fresh raw plant based approach to diet. I have a Thermomix which does an amazing job of blending greens into the smoothest of smoothies so I won’t be going into the comptetition for a Blendtec and perhaps standing in the way of someone else’s chance of winning. All the best to everyone. The Blendtec would be a great advantage to have in a green smoothie household and is a very generous offer. Good on you girls. Keep up the excellent work you are already doing.

    I am so thrilled about this give away.Just started the challenge.It would be of great help to have a good blender because right now I use a blender and an immersion blender to blend my smoothie well and without any lumps..Will save time in my health journey!
    Thanks for the recipes and encouragement.

    I am new to the green smoothie life. i am a single mom who is just trying to get healthier for myself and my daughter. i work full time and and i go to school full time. the blender i have is terrible, its old and does not cut it for what i need it to do. with my hectic life i need something that will help me along this journey not hinder me. i would really like to be able to mass produce my smoothies so i dont have to be constantly making them but it just doesnt work like that right now. if i were to win this blender it would be an amazing gift, not only would it simplify alot for me it would also make this journey a better experience for me! thank you for all the information recipes and encouragement! happy smoothie journey everyone!!!
