    My hubby was diagnosed to have gout. Having this condition restricts him from a lot of food. We want to go through natural remedies and that is fruits! And now, he is with me blending away fruits. He can’t have spinach on his smoothies like I do but he sure is having fruit smoothies everyday now. Yeyyy!

    I love green smoothies and so do my kids. I took a “break” from drinking my morning coffee a few days before starting this 30 day green smoothie challenge. During that first 3 days, I was so sleepy, had headaches and feeling grumpy. As soon as I started replacing my coffee with my green smoothie, I was feeling awesome! My kids (ages 9 and 12) get up in the morning with me and we try a new smoothie recipe. Getting my kids to eat enough fruits and vegies has been a difficult challenge. Now, they even ask me if we can make a smoothie for a healthy dessert. We are exercising more and have so much natural energy. Feeling amazing and truly have become a family of rawkstars! Raw is my new favorite way to live. Thank you!!! 🙂

    It seems life can get so busy we often forget to slow down and take a minute to be kind to ourselves. Green smoothies are a great way for me to keep myself a priority (and maybe share with the hubs and kiddos 🙂 ).

    I started the Green Smoothie Challenge in April and loved the recipes. I had more energy throughout the day, was more, er, regular, and I felt full. I went back to eating other breakfast foods after the challenge and found I was ravenous by mid-morning, I became sluggish in my workouts, and I definitely noticed a difference in other areas.
    I was super happy to immediately start drinking green again and really excited when the July Challenge came up. I’ve got tons of friends to sign up to do it with me. Then we discovered our son had a tumor and, while he is now okay, I realized I was being selfish in my healthy habits. Now ALL my boys enjoy green smoothies. Anything for their health and mine!

    My daily green smoothie really makes me feel like a green goddess! I never would have imagined that incorporating leafy greens into my smoothies would have such an effect on my body, mood, and my life. I drink them as an afternoon pick-me-up, and it gives me clean green energy for the rest of the day. It also fills me up so I am less prone to snacking on foods that don’t nourish my body. I am in awe of how truly simple and wholesome these smoothies are to make. I already have many favorites from the challenge that are easy to follow and fun to make! Thanks to the whole team at simply green smoothies, I have been transformed into a real rawkstar!

    I have been on the green smoothie journey a little over 6 months now and I have lost (without really even meaning to) 10lbs! More important than that, I feel happier and healthier all around with more energy to get through the day.

    If I win this blender it won’t be for me, but for my WONDERFUL mother who struggles to find balance in her life, including with her diet.

    Green smoothies have changed my life! Not only do I have tons more energy then before I started drinking them, my digestion has improved so much. I have had digestive issues my whole life and since I started drinking green smoothies, those issues have improved. I can see a difference when I miss drinking one. I love green smoothies! This blender would be fabulous and make drinking my smoothies that much better!

    Green Smoothies are the best! A friend recommended your website and says your smoothies have helped him become so much healthier. Your recipes are absolutely delicious. I’ve try to “just wing it” and more often than not, my smoothies never come out tasting quite right. Thanks for all the variety, the great recipes and shopping lists. You guys really make things way easier. My 2.5 yo son, loves helping me make them in the morning, it’s a great way for us to get all our veggies and fruits in and I feel great!

    I want to say a BIG thank you to y’all for your green smoothie recipes…I had some health problems and someone suggest green smoothies…I found your website and haven’t looked back!! I started with a Magic Bullet ( I worked it to death….) the Blendtec has been on my wish list ever since I found Simple Green Smoothies…love you girls..

    I love drinking green smoothies! I am not a big veggie eater so it helps me feel better about my not-as-healthy-as-it-could-be diet knowing that I’ve had some veggies first thing in the morning. Yummy! And freezing leftover fruit to blend in has helped me save some of our food that would have gone in the trash eventually. A new blender to break down those frozen chunks would be awesome!

    In our house we call them “greenies” hubby and I love them! My dad is getting a bit older and I have been trying to get him to at least to “try a greenie” but he swore he would fast the spinach..and as he says, I am NOT Popeye so I don’t “do” spinach! Well today I got him to try one and guess what, he LOVED it! Told me to put it on Facebook even! This blender would help me out a TON! Thank you!!!!

    Before I discovered green smoothies, I had a serious late-night snacking problem. I had a hard time staying asleep, and I felt bloated when I woke up every morning. When I started the 30 Day Challenge, I decided to to have a green smoothie with dinner every night. That was a life changing decision. I still sip a smoothie with dinner every night, and I continue to reap the benefits. I no longer have an urge to eat my doom right before bed. I full and fresh and every night I go to bed, and I wake up feeling better about myself every morning. My waistline is shrinking and I have more energy. Thank you, green smoothies!

    Green smoothies have been the best healthy choice I’ve ever made. For me, the smoothies are not about weight loss, but making good choices. I have a job where I may not have a chance to sit down and eat a salad at work or make a nice lunch in the morning. They’re fast, easy, delicious, and most importantly, fit into my lifestyle. I feel like I have more energy during the day and I’m full so I’m not likely to sit and munch on whatever snacks I or a coworker have laying around. I’m so excited to continue making this a part of my day even after the challenge is over!

    Although everyone loves a smoothie, the world “Green Smoothie” may have some people running the other way. But trust me, when I tried a green smoothie I was won over not only by the great taste but also by how great I felt! You can be creative in making a Green Smoothie in any commercials blender by using different green vegetables paired with seasonal/frozen fruit, and your favorite protein powder/hemp or chia seeds. But I can only imagine how elevated the taste will be using a high speed blender as a Blendtec? Wow!

    I’ve always made faces at my coworkers who came in with green smoothies, with a yuck expression. Now, I know different and actually love have one daily. I share with my little ones, who love them as well. Keeps you satisfied without giving you that bloated feeling, lol.

    WOW! Green smoothies have done the most for me, giving me so much life! I’m no longer taking meds for high blood pressure, no longer using steroids loaded creams for eczema breakouts, had my thyroid meds prescription cut in half and I contribute this to my diet of green smoothies and clean eating I have learned from the SGS through the challenges and super cleanses. It’s amazing how much I have been inspired by SGS, Green smoothies to create a healthy diet. Yea!

    Hello 🙂 I already enjoyed green smoothies before starting your challenge the beginning of July 🙂 But, I was also adding in a protein powder to it that made it sweet. I had tried a green smoothie without the protein powder and was like, nope not for me. Well this past March my son got married in Texas and my friend that we visited does your challenge and had me try a couple of your smoothies and I had her try my version. Funny how we were both not liking each others that much, for me it just wasn’t sweet enough. Well, I decided to try the smoothies again for the July challenge. I didn’t want to keep spending the extra money ($120 a month) for the protein powder, so looking over the recipes I said okay lets do this 30 day challenge. One of the problems I do have with making smoothies is them not mixing well and sometimes having green chunks. My friend has the Vitamix and NO chunks, what a difference it makes for the better. I have found some of your green smoothie recipes that are keepers. They are so yummy and sweet that I even have my teenage girls trying them. (They aren’t ready yet to join the challenge, LOL) I have had a few okays, but mostly I have been so pleased with them that I look forward to trying the next days recipe. I am now hooked on your green smoothies WITHOUT needing or wanting to add a protein powder. Thank you!!!! As for the benefits of drinking green smoothies, well….clearer and smoother skin, regularity, overall feel better, more energy and less need for sugar which is a huge plus for me.
