    I have been doing green smoothies for several months now…and love them. However, I was getting bored with the same old recipe. Your web-site has brought new life to my “green smoothie” obsession!!

    Green Smoothies are the bomb this time of year! All of the garden greens in the garden and the extras (beets, berries etc.) do several things…give you a lift, knowing you are doing something healthy for yourself and helps keep your refrigerator clean….lol…. with all of the different smoothies you can whip out with fresh produce! We are also part of a CSA this time of year, looking at all the beautiful colorful bounty knowing its fresh. After you get into the groove of making them, it’s a quick, fast, healthy start for your day! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes, so helpful….Rawk On. 🙂

    I have a lot more energy since i began my 30 green smoothie challenge! I feel great and I have noticed that my belly fat has gone down. I feel great that i am putting so many awesome raw nutrients in my body! I have my 23 year old daughter on it too. Loving it!

    I make a green smoothie first thing every morning. I think it sets a healthy tone for the rest of the day! It is also a great way to sneak veggies into my husbands diet!

    I now enjoy a more healthy and nutritious diet thanks to the addition of green smoothies. I used to reach for sweet drinks like pop, lemonade, and sweetened iced tea, my diet reflected the same poor choices. I always felt lethargic, emotional, and bloated. A few of my friends started making green smoothies so I decided to try it out too. Wow, did those green smoothies change my life! They gave me a super easy and delicious way to incorporate lots fruits and veggies into my diet. Drinking green smoothies has helped me to change my eating habits too. In addition to these delicious smoothies I now enjoy a more nutritious and well balanced diet. Every day feel energetic, happy, and healthy all thanks to green smoothies!

    I have always been a healthy individual, I mean I never even had the chicken pox as a child! but as an adult in my early 20s, I picked up some bad habits such as cigarette smoking and drinking. During my 6th consecutive year as a smoker, I caught a severe upper respiratory infection that lingered for months. It was so bad, it forced me to quit smoking. About a year later, I caught an epstein barr viral infection (known better as mono) and my health went completely down hill from there. I was so tired, weak, foggy headed and not myself for the next couple of years to come. I had packed on lots of weight, and even my outside appearance looked sickly. I had bad skin and lost a lot of my hair. I came across this website and thought I would give these green smoothies a try, and boy am I glad that I did. I am now down 64 pounds, I have amazingly clear skin, and while my hair has not grown back completely, I feel that these smoothies helped me keep what hair I had left and the condition of it now is better than it was before. This is proof that natural foods are better than synthetic man made created medicines and all the other junk out there. I am grateful to this website and it’s creators for being inspirational to others such as myself and hope that people will continue to want to better their health and lives through green smoothies. More power to the green!

    I now have green smoothies in my fridge ready for breakfast and meals on the run. I have felt much better since I started drinking at least two green smoothies a day (especially my stomach). I also feel healthier and have been making better food choices. Also I never liked smoothies before because I thought they were too sweet but I really love my green smoothies especially the ones I make with baby spinach!

    Green smoothies have opened my eyes to a whole new world of eating clean, using superfoods that I never thought I’d be eating (like kale, chia seeds and coconut oil), and putting the right nutrients in my body every day. Not to mention, they’re fun to make and give you a sense that you’re really taking a step toward a healthier diet and lifestyle! Being a part of the Simple Green Smoothies 30 day challenges has given me countless ideas for how to shake up my smoothie routine with new ingredients, and it helps me stay on top of drinking my greens every day. I also make them for my boyfriend who hates most veggies but loves the sweet taste of a green smoothie! I always make him take a few sips before I tell him what’s in it 🙂 We have a blender at my office that I’ve been using, but I would love to have a Blendtec to be able to make green smoothies at home, on the weekends, and to share with friends and family!

    I decided to replace my breakfast with the green smothies for the 30 days. I can honestly say I love how they have made me feel! I used to start feeling sluggish around 11a.m and just wasnt in the mood to do anything, but since starting the challange I feel great all morning! I feel lighter and that mid morning tiredness never comes! I will certainly continue beyond the 30day! There’s just no going back after how great I have been feeling! Thank you guys!!

    Love the green smoothies! I don’t get enough fruits and vegetables in my diet and because they taste so great, I now get my daily dose! Love them!

    They are the best “go-snack” and have overall helped me cut my calories! I can’t make enough of them! Would love the blendtec to start making my own almond milk 🙂

    I can’t go a day without having a green smoothie! It’s given me the energy I was lacking and a kick start to a healthier life.

    Green smoothies help me get in way more fruits/veggies than before! I feel better, my skin looks better, I just love green smoothies!

    Love green smoothies!! My husband and son are very picky when it comes to veggies and since they won’t eat them, I make them drink them! Seriously they don’t really know its in there, well hubs does, but my 3 y/o doesn’t and they both LOVE it! Thank you for all your recipes!!!

    That big mason jar full of green goodness is the magic sauce. Breakfast. Lunch. Brunch. Dinner. Supper. Dessert. It’s good anytime and all the time.

    Green Smoothies have helped me lower my cholesterol and over all health that I would love to win this blender to keep at work to introduce green smoothies to my co-workers.

    I love green smoothies! The other day when my husband and I and our two year old daughter were camping… she woke us and herself up to her sleep talking, “I want to have a green smoothie by mySELF. I want my OWN green smoothie.”…. That in and of itself tells you how my life has been changed. My two year old slurps down her greens and my husband gratefully enjoys his daily green smoothies as well. I love foraging and blending up herbs and plants from the forests has been a great way to implement more nutrition into our diets.

    How have green smoothies changed me?! Hmm, so many ways! First off, I legitimately smell better! I know, odd right? But when you start eating fresh you smell fresh! Beyond that, who wants to grab a bushel of kale or a handful of parsley and just munch? Not thanks, I’d rather blend it (preferably with a super high powered Blendtec) so I don’t have chunks of greens interfering with my smoothie gulping capabilities. More than anything, Green smoothies allow you to try new fruits, vegetables, and flavor combos you would probably dismiss otherwise. I love my daily smoothie!

    When a friend told me about your website about three years ago (yes, I’ve been with you guys that long), I was so excited to begin making the green smoothies that are so beautifully featured through pictures. At the time, I was in graduate school, working full time, interning and planning a wedding. So my energy level was usually at zero by the middle of the day. Your green smoothie recipes helped me to sustain my energy level, increase my blood flow due to anemia and help to improve my overall health. I’ve truly enjoyed this journey. I even got my mom hooked on them, who was a skeptic at first. My mom comes from the old school of thought where juicing is the BEST for you. She was against smoothies because she felt it was too “commercialized.” She is now a believer as well and appreciates smoothies as much as she does her juicing. She even joined me in your 21-day cleanse!
    I would love to win a blendtec blender because I would like to improve the quality of my smoothies. To give it a more creamy and smooth consistency. The blender I have now does not give those delicious recipes any justice!

    Thanks Jadah and Jen
    You are fab!

    Im not going to lie, but I haven’t been able to do the full 30 day challenge. But what the green smoothie challenge has done for me is learn to integrate more fruits and vegetables into my lifestyle and diet. Im not perfect and by no means try to hide the fact that I enjoy going out for a greasy lunch or dinner and brunch on the weekend. However, when I have to get up and go into work early, these smoothies have been a lifesaver. Quick and easy to make and keeps me full. I noticed that when I do start my day right, I tend to make those healthier decision throughout the day (less cravings for chocolates, I want to hit the gym) and then when I do go out and enjoy a big greasy meal I don’t feel as bad because it’s a treat and know I can always wake up and have a smoothie that actually tastes good.

    Green smoothies have transformed me into a totally different person. I wake up earlier and feel even more energized throughout the day! I am able to last longer when holding yoga poses and feel myself getting stronger. Most of all I get to spend more time with the ones I love and am happy doing it!
