    I started the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge July 1st and I am so glad I did. Starting my day out healthy makes the whole rest of the day better. More energy, less cravings, no bloating, etc. I love green vegies so I’ve never had a problem getting them in, but it has been a struggle with my 20 month old daughter. Now she drinks one every morning with me. She loves them! The recipes are simple and they taste delicious. Now I just need this awesome blender;)

    Green smoothies have definitely changed my daily routine. I used to skip breakfast (no time and too tired to fix it) so I always needed a few cups of coffee (or several cups of green tea) to get my energy level up, now I fix my green smoothie (it takes only minutes thanks to pre-prepping my ingredients) and I feel like I’ve got the energy to make it through my morning. Even my family noticed how much more energy I have on weekend mornings. Thank you so much for making it so simple, the recipes are great and easy to follow, having a shopping list and recipe I can prep everything in advance. I have been sharing the recipes with co-workers and they love it too, I’ve recommended your website to everyone who will listen! Such a life saver!!

    I started my green smoothie journey January 1st and have not looked back! I began researching green smoothies in December after becoming tired of battling my weight and wanted a healthy way to kick start the new year. I did not want to do a fad diet or invest in diet pills. I wanted to change the way I looked at food, prepared it, and ate it. So, I sat and googled green smoothies and you guys were the first site to pop up and I spent hours reading through your posts, reading through recipes, and watching your videos. I have participated in 2 other green smoothie challenges this year that you have put on and really enjoy them. I make the smoothies for beakfast, lunch, and dinner some days. My 5 year old son even likes them and the actual “green” ones he calls his “Hulk juice”. Going green has made eating healthy fun and I’ve lost 24 pounds so far this year. I’ve recently started working out several times a week at a gym and now the weight is starting to come off even more quickly. We are now making healthier whole food choices as well. We are changing from the inside out! I love the healthy lifestyle changes that I’m seeing in my life and my son’s life one green smoothie at a time.

    I feel like I’m starting the day on a positive note when I have my green smoothie for breakfast. It helps me make better food choice decisions through out the rest of the day.

    Green Smoothies have made me more healthy. I can stick in them all the things I need to eat, but hate eating. The best is carrots. I hate the taste of carrots but not in a green smoothie!

    Hi! This challenge has been great. I’m 22 weeks pregnant, and this kid HATES vegetables. Every time I try to eat a healthy salad or a side of broccoli, it tastes like dirt. My cravings are for carbs and ice cream. As a result, I was feeling sluggish and gross before I started this challenge. These smoothies help me get those important veggies into my body while tricking the baby into thinking I’m having a treat. And I’m definitely noticing a change in how I feel after having a green smoothie. Perfect solution! Thanks!

    Since graduating college, I have set new life goals of being happy and healthy: surrounding myself with positive people, striving toward goals both personally and professionally and treating my body right. Green smoothies have been the perfect first step toward learning about and feeding my body more nutrients that it needs; I have since had more energy and been able to practice more exercising and it has started the snowball effect! I feel better than I have in years! The next steps are to cut out the bad things in my diet, learn to cook healthier for myself and continue striving toward my goals 🙂 Your Green Smoothie Challenges have been great motivation and inspiration for creating in the kitchen. I love your business and the branding and what you stand for, and I am inspired by your encouragement. Thank you for what you do!
    *Inspire others and their success and happiness will inspire you* <3

    I found your website back in October and have been drinking green smoothies every morning since then. It really sets the tone for the rest of my day. I’ve changed my diet and how I view food. Thank you!!!!

    In 2012 I spent a year in Milwaukee, WI for my job. Although it was very fun, the year was filled with brewery tours, cheese curds, bloody marys at brunch, and festivals. Working out five times a week allowed me to only gain 7 pounds, but I just did not feel healthy. I was bloated a lot and knew I needed to get back on track. My roommate and I came across your instagram page and gave green smoothies a try. My life would forever change. Green smoothies are so delicious and easy to make. I love experimenting with different ingredients and trying the recipes that are on your page. When I moved back to New Jersey, I kept up my green smoothie kick and did my first 30-day green smoothie challenge (which was not a challenge at all!). They are nutritious and help keep me regulated. Recently, I had extra tofu left over in my refrigerator and decided to add it to my green smoothie. It was genius if I do say so myself! Not only did it make the smoothie richer and creamier, but it added a lot of protein without changing the taste. Thank you for changing my life and the life of others through your recipes and posts. You have made staying healthy easy for all women!

    I love green smoothies!!! Since I’ve started greening I feel great. Less body aches, more energy, and can’t wait for my next fix. My son (3yrs) loves making them in the morning. He tries each one out and give me he’s opinion. This is one great change to our healthier eating habits.

    Green smoothies have basically taken over the way I view eating clean. In the past, fruits and mostly veggies were boring and bland and I would incorporate them into my day minimally, or just enough to say I ate something healthy. I didn’t know the combination of fruits and veggies could taste so good. I now can taste the natural sugars of fruits so much that I don’t crave the artificial sugar that I once used to. Its great now because my body craves fresh food. I can’t go more than a day without something fresh and healthy. I now eat a green smoothie just about every morning and when I come home from the gym late at night I no longer pull out pots and pans..I Just whip up some green goodness!

    By doing this challenge I have eaten (drank) things I never thought I would have and enjoyed them! I have even added them in their normal form (unblended) to my diet. I feel better, not so sluggish & have seen my body change for the better! I don’t snack in the morning anymore & now make a little extra to have in the afternoon to stop those cravings. This blender would be awesome. My smoothies are a little “chewy” because my normal blender can’t make these ingredients smooth. That’s ok though I kinda like the extra chewing now. I think it also satisfies another urge 🙂

    I love this green smoothie challenge! I have been having green smoothies for my breakfast for the past 2 months, and once this challenge started I now have 2 green smoothies a day (replacing my breakfast and afternoon snack). In this time so many things have changed for the better: I lost 10 lbs (can’t believe it!), have so much more energy, waking up in the morning is not so painful anymore, and, I never thought this would be possible, I am no longer craving or enjoying sweet and junky foods like I always have. I am shocked at the powerful changes these smoothies can make. As a teacher who is rescuing/renovating a foreclosed home with my husband, I don’t have a lot of extra time or money. These green smoothies fit right into my life because they are so easy and affordable. I am so happy to have found such an easy change to my life that makes such an incredible impact.

    I have been making my smoothies with an old magic bullet (hang in there little guy!). I’m excited at the possibility of hugely upgrading my smoothie making obsession. Making these recipes in one blending would be – amazing!

    Green smoothies have been an important part of my success in eating clean. I get servings of greens every day, which was not happening before, and I feel so much better ! I’ve realized I don’t need added sweeteners too, which has made a huge difference in how I feel.

    We love green smoothies! The whole rainbow of smoothies are delicious, but it’s especially awesome to have the extra veggies we’d otherwise be missing out on, and really fun when our 2 year old son helps make them. Big smiles and little hands full of greens are adorable. “More spinach, mom”?

    I love the green smoothies! My husband and I both have struggled losing weight, and this has been such a wonderful solution for us. I’m a stay at home mom (4 kids) and my husband comes home everyday from work, for lunch, and we have really enjoyed drinking our green smoothie together. Not only have we benefited from the smoothies by loosing weight, feeling more energetic throughout the day, making better food choices throughout the day, but it has also given us one more thing to enjoy together! Thank you!

    Ever since I read about this challenge and joined I have been hooked on green smoothies. In fact, making a smoothie has become a habit for me. I tend to do all my prep work the night before and blend in the morning. It really is simple and doesn’t take much time at all. Instead of grabbing a waffle or sausages I just blend the smoothie. I’m actually using it as a meal replacement versus a snack. The other interesting thing is that I am a coffee addict. But when having a smoothie for breakfast I don’t get headaches or crave coffee. I think that’s super. Not to say I’ve gone cold turkey on the coffee but happy to know that something is available to help me get off coffee when the need comes.

    currently, I am using something similar to the Magic Bullet to blend (it’s called Bella). However, it would be super to win a REAL BLENDER!!!

    I tend to work late which makes me finish my daily work outs even later. Green Smoothies are the best option for me to refuel easily before bed without being too full or eating a big meal before bed! Love them!
