    I used to get my greens in by using a juicer but cleaning the juicer afterwards was a real pain in the bum. I have found that making green smoothies in a blender is a better way to go. I have been going back and forth with myself over shelling out the large sums of money needed to buy a Vitamix or Blendtec blender and have made no monetary commitment yet. To win this blender would really rawk!!

    Hi Jen & Judah,
    I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and after having a lumpectomy, I have been cancer free for a year now. I realized I had gained a lot of weight before I got diagnosed, and after radiation I have lost a lot of my energy. I saw something about green smoothies on TV, and decided I must do something once and for all to get healthier, and lose weight. I was so glad when I found your sight, and the instructions were so easy for making smoothies, with all the different ingredients. I add the chia seeds and protein powder to mine, and I buy fresh strawberries and blueberries and other fruits, and freeze them to use in my smoothies, and it is much cheaper than buying frozen fruits. I also use almond milk with every one, because the cancer pill I have to take daily saps my calcium. During the first week I had so much more energy, and my cravings started to disappear. Knowing that I am drinking my “healthy stuff” through the day makes me conscious of what I eat for my regular meals. I have lost some weight and now have energy to start exercising. I know I will continue this good way of life. I can’t thank you enough for your support and for sharing your knowledge so we can all live better.

    My love/ obsession/ addiction for green smoothies started a few days into the Fresh Start 21 cleanse. Not only were they tasty, I felt super-charged! The cleanse and the green smoothie challenges totally changed my perspective on healthy eating and what was possible. Cooking healthy recipes and blending up some green goodness isn’t as hard as I thought it’d be. I now look forward to my kitchen time and feel more confident about putting together yummy meals and yummy smoothie combos. Being addicted to green smoothies is definitely the best addiction you can have! I lost a few pounds, gained a lot of energy, and my digestion running better than ever! The best part though, is the compliments I’m getting from my friends, family, and co-workers- saying, “you look so healthy” or “your skin is glowing!” Thanks to all of you bad-ass babes at Team Simple Green Smoothies for the kick in the pants I needed to start taking control of my health. And thank you for this awesome giveaway!! <3

    Hello my name is Latonia. I woke up one day just tired of being over weight and dealing with the many health issues I have acquired. I am a diabetic and have Cardio Myopathy heart failure. I told myself that I need a life change. I am tired of taking all this medications and sticking myself with a needles every day. I told myself there has to be a better way. I went on the internet looking for diets and etc. But I know diets don’t work. That’s when I came across a green smoothie recipe and thought to myself I can do that. So I googled green smoothies and came across your site. I joined the challenge in June so I started a week early on the challenge. But I have to tell you this has been the best challenge I have done. My blood sugars are down, my energy level is up, and I feel alive again. I have no words for the joy I feel by taking this challenge. I feel great! I have lost weight and to top it off my family has jumped on the Green Smoothie Wagon. My 5 year old would never eat her veggies and that worried me but now she drinks a green smoothie every day thanks to you and your wonderful challenge. I thank you for helping me improve my health and feel alive again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart…My heart feels amazing!

    I have been drinking smoothies for several months now and have found your website very helpful and fun. I wasn’t sure at first if I would like green smoothies but I have definitely come to love them! I’m still using an old blender that was given to me and would love to have a new one to make my smoothies even more smooth! Thank you, Vivian

    Hello Jen & Jadah!

    I have dabbled in green smoothies for about a year now. My older blender met an untimely death so…I bought a new and improved (translate more expensive model). This model renders kale into chunky bits which doesn’t make for a creamy smoothie. Now, let me clarify that the money spent was not that of a cool Blendtec BUT…I don’t usually buy myself the cool items…I save that for my kiddo (he’s 8 & loves green smoothies).

    So there’s the cliff notes version of my story…so much more to type/say but don’t want to bore you.

    Thanks for the opportunity…fingers, toes and kale crossed 🙂

    I’m just now starting with green smoothies thanks to your website, I use a regular blender and I have to chew my smoothie…but who said I had to give up chewing! I would love to win this blender so I can try a real smoothie. While pregnant with my 3 month old baby I developed gestational diabetes and decided I was going to make a change. I have four kids and I hope to eat smarter and incorporate healthy SMOOTH smoothies to stay healthy and keep up with them. Thank you so much for the recipes!

    I have never had a green smoothie before this challenge. In fact, I hardly got any servings of fruit and vegetables. In the short time I have been doing this challenge, I feel a difference in myself. Not just physically, as in more energy, but mentally as well. I have motivation now to change my eating habits. This is just the start of the changes I want to make. Thank you.

    Raw green smoothies have changed our lives. Our whole family drinks one everyday in place of breakfast, we feel full and energized for hours. We add kale, kiwi, green apples, chia seeds, lemon, ginger and what ever fresh fruit or veggies we can find. Loved it in avocado season, starfruit, noni, mangos…you name it! It is a quick way to get your 5-a-day!

    Green smoothies help me get in my greens daily-which i would never do otherwise-it also helps my kids to get in a serving or two-again they would never do that otherwise! I’m so grateful I found green smoothies about 6 years ago and have drinken them regularly-and my kids!-ever since!

    Green Smoothies have changed how I looked at nutrition. I feel great when I am fitting all that fruit and veggie goodness into my day. It’s changed how I think about eating and myself!

    Drinking green smoothies has been an incredible revolution! I crave the blended greens and even the smell of fresh cut grass starts me thinking about my next green smoothie. This is very strange to me, but I kind of love it! Thanks for helping me become a Rawkstar!!!

    I was advised by my drs to change my “diet” I was getting stomach issues , my cousin and it some about health and I decided that I need to try it, I’ve done smoothies in the past and this time it was easy. The only thing that needs to change now is my blender! It takes 25 minutes to make two green smoothies when I’m rushing out the door for work!

    We can’t do green smoothies because we don’t have anything to make smoothies with but juicing has been that life change for us. I want so badly to give my children good, fun and healthy food and juicing allows for that to happen! They enjoy the fun of getting a special mystery “juice,” and I get the peace of mind that they are eating what is best for them. I would LOVE a great smoothie maker. We gave up on smoothies after too many broken blenders and it would be AMAZING to have one that would stand being used often.

    With a green smoothie, I know I’m starting my day off right. I love having 2 cups of fruits and veggies in the morning. It’s great to try new combinations. I’ve been inspired to keep a kitchen herb garden, and I often throw basil, mint or oregano into my smoothie. Delicious!

    So love these recipes and starting my day off with a delicious, green smoothie. It’s inspired me and a couple of others at work to start eating right and lose some weight. We are calling it our Weight Loss Extravaganza!
