    I am very new to green smoothies, but wow…. I love them and you guys have taught me oh so much. Love your website so packed with information, recipes and encouragement. I share your website with everyone. Let me try to count the ways green smoothies have helped. I feel better, losing weight, less hungry, less bloating, less gas, more regular, clearer skin, resting better, getting more of the fruits and veggies needed daily….. Now I just need that new Blendtec to keep me a rawkstar!

    This is my first green smoothie challenge that I have participated in. In my first week I’ve noticed how much more energy I have. I don’t even need to drink a morning cup of coffee to get my day started. It seems like the pounds are coming off easily also, I’m down 5 lbs. I’m normally only able to lose 1/2 a pound in a week. My coworkers have commented on how nice my complexion is looking too. Everyday they are asking what is in my smoothies! I have shared the challenge with many of them, and I think they are participating too. I’ve seen a lot of mason jars filled with smoothies lately!

    After dealing with an autoimmune disease for years – and truly struggling – green smoothies have fundamentally transformed my health. I drink at least one every day, and have my 2 year old drinking them with me. We have races to see who can drink it faster and who can get a bigger green mustache 🙂
    While my autoimmune will never be gone – I am symptom free and no longer allow it to define or limit me…all thanks to the power punch of my green smoothies and eating at least 60% raw!

    This green smoothie challenge has definitely helped me to stay on track and when I get those afternoon carb/sweet cravings I have a green smoothie and my fix is complete!! Looking forward to the next Green Smoothie challenge 🙂

    I started drinking green smoothies in February when I started working with a trainer – and because I have psoriasis and some arthritis, I have been able to incorporate more anti-inflammatory ingredients into my daily food intake through drinking smoothies – thereby negating the need for supplements and medications!

    Green smoothies have given me, as a vegan athlete, the extra umph I need to go the extra mile! Now I just need a nice blender like Blendtec instead of my cheapo Walmart one… would love to be the winner! 🙂

    I cannot tell you how grateful I am for finding your 30-day challenge!!! My 16-month-old has severe food aversions, and we are finding it very challenging to find anything he’ll eat. However, we started your green smoothie challenge at the beginning of this month and he LOVES your recipes!! There has not been a single recipe that he didn’t like!! He now says, “smoothie” and does a little dance as the blender is mixing our latest creation!! Thank you all so very much!!!! I have shared his story with my friends and several have now started the challenge too! Y’all rock!!!

    Green smoothies are a great way to get my kids to eat more fruits and veggies. Plus, they make a great summertime cool off treat! Thank you for introducing me to them! I love all the time saving tips you give too!

    This is my first challenge. Never thought that I could drink these green drinks, but these recipes are great and with a small change of fruit or protein to change things up I have one for lunch and one i split for snack. Keeping me full and full of energy. I am currently using an old nutribullet, and I would love to get my hands on this blender. My daughter will not go for the green unless it can take those bits out and she could probably use the green smoothies to help with her fibromyalgia. Can’t wait for the new recipes.

    Green smoothies have changed my life by giving me a simple, convenient way to eat healthy. Just having green smoothies in my life has helped me to lose weight and have more energy for everyday things. It has changed my whole idea of healthy eating and living.

    LOVE SMS! Green smoothies have been trending for the last few years and I happily jumped on the band wagon but was getting bored with the same old frozen mixed berries and spinach. Finding your site has reenergized my commitment to drinking a green smoothie every single day. The health and weight loss benefits are amazing but what I find to be the most powerful is this.

    Starting my day with the best and healthiest choice encourages more healthy and best choices throughout the day. From making the bed ( who doesn’t like to get into crisply made bed at the end of the day) to eating a healthy snack instead of running through the drive through. It allows me to start my day doing something great just for me and inspires me do other great things all day long. In a nutshell I love Green Smoothies because they feel good, to shop for them and see all the produce and colors in my cart, to preparing and blending them up, and finally sipping them in that quiet space of the morning before these crazy days we have get started. Thank you for your recipes!

    Green smoothies have helped me become more healthier than I could have ever been on my own. I’m a single parent of four, full-time student and I work. So green smoothies come in handy since it’s hard to eat healthy on the go. Now I make them ahead of time and freeze them then just grab and go. Go thing I do freeze them since my magic bullet blender is on its way to dying every time I use it I can smell the motor burning. Lol but that’s not stopping me, I’m going to use it until I can’t use it anymore. I have to have my green smoothies. I used my first challenge as a form of a diet. Now green smoothies are a part of my life. Everywhere I go I take my green smoothies with me especially on vacation, that’s how I introduced my brother and nephew to green smoothies. Now every time I visit they want a green smoothie. lol I even have my children drinking them. We are doing this challenge as a family. Thanks for all your encouragement, challenges and recipes

    Starting Green Smoothies has been an amazing change for me and my body. I started them during fertility treatments and was one of the only things I craved. I knew it was helping me stay healthy with every sip! Now I am expecting our first and Green Smoothies have become even more important to me and my everyday health! I absolutely love the taste and there is nothing better than craving something that you know is so good for you. I even have my husband hooked!
    Thank you for the amazing and life changing work that you do in creating the recipes and guides!!!!
