    I love Green Smoothies!!! My kiddos do too! They have given me more energy after hard workouts, a pick me up in the afternoon and helped curb sugar cravings…for the most part.:) I would LOVE a Blendtec!!! I am tired of using the Magic Bullet over and over and my kiddos are tired of waiting for their Green smoothies! Thanks for this great chance!!!!

    Hi ladies!

    I found your site and the challenge quite by accident over 2 challenges ago (I think) after searching for some more recipes for green smoothies. You have a great website, great attitude and great recipes! I was at first using a Magic Bullet blender which was fine but wouldn’t smooth things out as much as I’d like and to be honest, chewing my drinks was getting a bit old. Then the Nutribullet came out and it’s been my go-to since then. However, I would love to upgrade to the Blendtec as I’ve read some crazy awesome reviews about it!

    My story is probably one similar to the over 2,000 responses above (wow!) in the sense of wanting to eat healthier and maybe loose some pounds, but honestly my biggest motivation was to help my psorasis. I’m one of the “lucky” few that doesn’t have huge patches all over my body, but rather I get the super special, super annoying and embarassing type of psorasis where it goes in the folds of you skin and mine likes to show up in my ears – both inside and outside. It’s itchy as all get-out, gets red and swollen often, I get chronic ear infections from the itch-scratch open – bacteria in – heal – scratch again cycle and have to take antibiotics every few months. It sometimes gets so bad that my ears are literally blocked almost entirely by the scales and I have muffled hearing. Let me tell you – it’s awesome-sauce. 🙁

    It doesn’t help that I’m an EMT and when my patients see my ears, they don’t always feel comfortable having me treat them if I’m having a visible flare-up, like I’m contagious or something.

    But I digress – anyways, drinking green smoothies (which I boost with All-Day Energy Greens powder from IVL Institute) and eating as clean as I can, has actually improved the psorasis where I can now blessedly wear my hair up most of the time w/o embarassment (yay for not sweating as much in the summer!).

    So regardless of whether or not I win the blendtec, I’ll keep on my path I’ve started and you help keep going. Have a great day and rawk on! 🙂

    Green smoothies are starting my day off right! But the super BONUS is that my toddler requests green smoothies (he calls them “mooovies” 🙂 ) in the morning and after school. Score for adding extra veggies to his diet!! Thanks!

    I’ve been drinking smoothies for a while now, when people just thought they were weird! Now I’ve slowly gotten everyone I know to drink them too! But my small personal blender that my roommate and I were using daily just died, and I’m ready to upgrade.

    Green smoothies with make me feel amazing and help me combat Common Variable Immunodeficiency. Unfortunately I have been through four regular blenders because they can’t handle kale, spinach, apples, fruit, and ginger. My energy levels, skin, hair, and ability to fight infection have all improved since adding green smoothies to my diet. My hubby even planted kale in our garden this year for my smoothies.

    I am a groupie of the green smoothie! I truly did not think I would be able to become a healthy eater but these green smoothies make it easy to turn over a new leaf. Not only are they tasty, but their so simple to prepare. I’m so glad I found Simple Green Smoothies.

    Setting diet trends for all my friends and family! After tons of comments like “Gross, whats thats green stuff?” and “Here comes Brenna with her green slush,” I decided to make anyone who asked me what I was drinking to try it. At least 10 new friends and family members now all swoon over their green smoothies. I’m just a trend setter! Well, you guys are at least 🙂

    I am happy to say that since our participation in the last Green Smoothie Challenge my girls and I are drinking one a day, 7 days a week with a scoop of protein for either breakfast or lunch. We love the taste and variety but for me the benefits are innumberable. Since starting the Green Smoothies, I have not gotten sick (cold, flu, etc.), my body feels full and nurished, I do not have as much weight flucuation as I used to, my skin is clear and glows, etc, etc. So happy my friends told me about your site and grateful for all your creativeness and passion of good nutrition!

    Love the energy, vitality, color, taste, nutrition and creativity of making green smoothies. Love your recipes and taking this to the global community. I work for a health supplement company and love sharing my experience with green smoothies with customers. Most have never heard about them. I send them to your website and love knowing that together we are “greening” our planet in a whole new way!! Let it grow!

    This is our third 30 day challenge and our entire family looks forward to all the wonderful new recipes! Green smoothies are now a part of our diet every single day! We have three children 6, 5, 3 and they love them! We save all the recipes and our 6 year old has made a special smoothie recipe binder that we keep them in. The kids love to pick out their favorites from the binder and help me make them!
    Thanks for everything!

    I have been drinking green smoothies for a few months. They taste absolutely amazing. I have a ten year old son who doesn’t like to eat vegetables but love green smoothies. It is a great way to get him to get in the needed fruits and vegetables that his body needs. I would love to win the blender so I can make our smoothies even better.

    I love my green smoothies in the morning. They start my day off just right! Since beginning them, I’ve noticed that my stomach has started to feel better and my skin has stopped breaking out as much! If I don’t have my smoothie, I can sure feel it throughout the day. I make sure to have everything set up so I can blend and go! I recommend them and simple green smoothies to all of my friends!

    I began making smoothies about 4 years ago. I saved and save and purchased my own Blendtec 2 1/2 years ago. I spread the word and now some friends, family members and co-workers have all begun to make green smoothies. Even my 72 year old father-in-law makes his morning green smoothie, every day! I want to win a Blendtec to give to either my Aunt or my Mother, because they are using a regular blender….but they love coming over to my house and drinking my Blendtec mixers. Thanks very much!

    Green smoothies have changed my life in many ways… The biggest way is probably this: I have two small children, and mornings are hectic. I have not had time to sit down and eat breakfast for years. The past couple of years I have had some health issues, and light-headedness by afternoon. But, ever since I’ve been blending smoothies in the mornings, I feel SO much better and no more light head. I can get much needed protein and nutrients with the green smoothy recipes, and it’s so easy to throw it together, there is always time!

    Green smoothies = green goodness!

    I’ve never felt more alive than when I am drinking my green smoothies! The options are endless, and you just feel great!

    I’ve learned that even a number of different eating styles can be accommodated by eating green smoothies, because the options are just so vast for what you put in your smoothie.

    My favorite green to add in is baby kale and/or spinach. My favorite extra I’ve discovered is hemp seeds! Who would have thunk I’d love hemp seeds!?!? Certainly not me before green smoothies!

    Green smoothies can also be kid friendly which is an amazing bonus. I’ve also been a veggie eater, but not a real fruit love, weird I know, but green smoothies has opened up my taste pallet to loving different fruits now. My new favorite fruit is mango with pineapple.

    Keep you the great work you all do! 😀 the green ain’t mean, it’s fine cuisine. 😉

    I just want to say thank you! One year ago this month I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non alcholic Cirrhosis. The doctors have determined that it is genetic as I have NO other health issues. I am pretty healthy with the exception that my liver is failing at a very rapid pace. It seems the only thing they can do for me is vitamins a healthy diet and if they find one in time a liver transplant. Frustrated I began searching the internet and I stumbled upon your website earlier this year. I decided to do the April challenge. What could it hurt right? I began drinking the green smoothies for breakfast every morning I really began to get my energy back. When I went back to my doctor in May all of my liver tests were in the normal range. My doctor couldn’t believe it! I told him about the green smoothies and he said he didn’t know how that drinking a green smoothie every day could make that much difference but it obviously had since I had not changed anything else. He even asked for your website. I just love how all the ingredients you put in the recipes are so good for you but taste great. I am hooked. I would really like to have a blender like the blendtec because my old blender died on me in early June and I have been using a food processor but it just doesn’t blend the ingredients very well. Thank you again, I believe green smoothies are truly saving my life.

    I want to be a better me, especially as I get older. I have to adjust my palate and my diet. I find that as I am aging its harder to keep my weight down. Lord deliver me from wearing the dreaded double digit clothing! Trying to stay below a size 10 has become a challenge for me unfortunately.

    I love smoothies and I tell everyone I know about them! Smoothies have changed my life by helping me to incorporate (more) veggies into my diet and to help regulate my digestive system. I love fruit but the truth is I don’t eat the recommended daily amount that I should for either fruits or veggies. As a matter of fact I eat so many sweets that it could be considered one of the food groups in my diet 🙁

    Smoothies are delicious, fun and refreshing. I print out your recipes from each challenge and have them attached to the front of my fridge. I circle my favorite ones so that I can refer to them easily! The only challenge I have is fitting time into my morning schedule to make them but … I LOVE SMOOTHIES!

    Whenever I make a smoothie I love to post pictures of them on my Facebook page. I have generated a lot of interest. People love to tell me that they have purchased a blender and then proceed to ask me questions about recipes and techniques. Of course I’m no expert so I suggest that they sign up for your 30 day challenge. Easy as pie.

    I think I tried my first challenge just so that I could fit more veggies into my diet. I didn’t think I would like them. After the first challenge, I was in love! I could make them for anything I was craving at the moment. I learned how to come up with my own recipes. Not only did my knowledge grow and change my outlook nutritionally, I felt amazing. My skin was glowing, I felt strong mentally, and my body was no longer hitting a mid day slump at work. My children took notice, too. Now everytime I pull out the blender, they ask me if they can help make the smoothies and we can enjoy them as a family. Because children are our future, I know I’m helping set good habits for mine so that maybe this one part of their lives will be a little bit easier in a hard, cold world.
