    Green smoothies have actually changed our kids’ lives! 🙂 They will eat certain fruits and vegetables, but not others. This is a great way to get them to eat a larger variety, especially the healthy greens! 🙂

    I always have my green smoothie before I work out. Since drinking them everyday I have cut down on coffee because they give me so much energy and I don’t even need my caffeine fix anymore.
    I love them so much that a lot of the time I have them for dinner as well! they fill me up and I feel amazing in the morning.
    Thank you green smoothie challenge!

    Your website has really motivated my husband and I to try green smoothies on a daily basis. I wish I would have found out about this website before the 30-day challenge began. It would be great to win this blender to make our morning smoothie routine much easier!

    I am very new to delicious green smoothies! After trying an alkalizing diet and drinking the prescribed green drink, I thought never again! I have been enjoying these new sweeter green smoothies and the very informative and fun site here for a few weeks now! I swear it’s the main cause of less cravings and lowered blood pressure due to naturally taking in less sodium since incorporating smoothies for breakfasts or lunches! I find I eat less meat and focus on the veggies and enjoy my fruits a lot more! I look forward to losing about 100 lbs. by continuing my healthier diet including these yummy nutritious creations! Thank you for the inspiration!

    I love the site and LOVE the green smoothies. I had tried a couple of recipes before and never cared for the mix, but so far everything I’ve tried from your recipe list is delicious. You tips are great too…no more stringy green stuff in my smoothies!

    The best part is with minimal effort I’m getting more than I need for servings of fruit and vegetables. Thank you!

    Hi and first of all I want to thank you. This is my second time around doing the Green Smoothies and I cann’t wait for the next challenge. I used to drink juices, but I found out that they weren’t filling. I have Fibromyalgia and taking a lot of medications, but the smoothies have helped me to get nutrients, vitamins which I wasn’t getting and also help my life for the better!!! I have more energy and I do love them. Someday I hope my hubby will join me. 😉
    Again thank you and God bless you for all you are doing to help others.

    If there is ever a life changing moment it is when you realize the energy, vitality and renewed love of life has come from drinking green smoothies. Or maybe I should say chunkies! It is hard to get smooth using a chopper, but it is edible.
    You are very inspiring and I love your blog it is a lot of fun and healthy too!
    Stay green.

    New to the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge, I was excited for my family to start experiencing all of the amazing benefits of making green smoothies part of our lifestyle. What I didn’t expect was how easy it would be to make this one small, but powerful change- green smoothies have been a HUGE hit! My older three children, ages 5 to 11, ask each day what kind of smoothie we are having (and when), and as soon as my two- year-old hears the blender, he runs for his chair and waits at the table in anticipation. My husband and I quickly began to notice changes- at first just experiencing feeling “better”, but now seeing more definitive results (he has lost weight, my skin looks amazing), which are motivating us to continue to make better nutritional choices. As a family, we are also beginning to create our own green smoothie recipes and explore different combinations that we might have shied away from before. I love seeing my kids excited about making healthy choices and thinking creatively about food, and it is so reassuring to know that we are all getting the vital nutrients that we need. Green smoothies have quickly become a permanent family tradition for us – thank you, Jen, Jadah, and the entire Simple Green Smoothies Rawkstar team!

    My husband and I started the July challenge a few days late and after many persuasive discussions about why we need green smoothies. He has been surprised how tasty they are and we are both feeling better. We use kale and chard and spinach from our patio garden and the farmers’ market, making us feel doubly virtuous! My blender is holding up but is a wedding present from 1970. She does a fairly good job but a new one would be a wonderful addition to our kitchen.

    Last summer (maybe longer than that, I’m not good with dates and stuff) I joined a group of ladies on facebook that were all helping each other with workouts and sharing recipes and meal ideas,that was the first time I heard about green smoothies. At first I was like… eww! lol but a new I need some more greens in my diet and… why not? I searched for green smoothies online and found simple green smoothies (I was kind of disappointed at myself, “how I didn’t look into this before?”) I was amazed with all the recipes, so I went to the store and got me a nutribullet (you know… it does the job and it was what I could afford at the moment) I got hoked! Before I would always force myself to eat some greens ( I could go days without eating greens) but then I was drinking my greens every single morning and feeling so energetic and excited about my diet. Jen & Jadah, you guys helped me so much on my baby steps for a better way of living and dealing with food. I now don’t drink green smoothies every single morning, which is ok because now I eat my greens and it all started with my daily green smoothies. Thank you!

    Thank you Jen & Jedah for sharing your knowledge and experience with me! Green smoothies have made a tremendous difference in my life, both physically and psychologically!! Instead of filling my body with fatty, unhealthy food that makes me feels sick to my stomach, I start my day with delicious tasting simple green smoothies. I love the 30-day challenges, and the variation of smoothie recipes that you provide. I have shared your website information with friends and family who are equally happy with your green smoothie recipes! Thank you for making a difference in my life!!

I am not a big veggie girl so the recipes on this site and in the 30 day challenges are Awesome!! Baby loves em too she gets to kicking about half way through 🙂 she’s energized and so is a tired a momma!!

    Thank you for this give away! Over the past month I have made the commitment to change to a healthy life style. Of a single mother it has been difficult to maintain this life style due to the expense. I have been excited with the 30-day smoothie challenge to help jump start my healthy living. I have been replacing the smoothie for my breakfast and evening snack. Since the challenge, I can feel the difference. However, due to my low impact blender, I been dealing with the pieces of the spinach and kale. This blender would help tremendously with making smoother smoothies as well as allowing me to get the true taste of the smoothies. Thanks again for this challenge.
