    Ever since I started having my late morning green smoothie (I also practice intermittent fasting for twelves hrs./day) I have more energy and have been losing weight. I’m down 40 lbs. in 6 months. I enjoy pairing my spinach (my favorite green!) with whatever is in season. Honestly, strawberry season is way too short! Hothouse strawberries are nothing compared to the sweet juicy fresh ones. I’m sure glad I was smart and bought as many as I could so I could freeze them for my smoothies! I keep my smoothies from becoming boring by using flavored protein powder (yumm chocolate and strawberries!) and whatever is in season.

    It started when a dear friend visited and I saw how little there was of her. She can’t eat. All she can stomach is nasty protein drinks and cottage cheese. I told another dear friend of this, and she gave me a recipe for a smoothie. She said it would taste like a chocolate milkshake, and I said, “Dude…a smoothie that tastes like a chocolate milkshake is a chocolate milkshake.” But I tried it anyway. It looked awful, but it tasted pretty good! The texture could have used some work because we only have a cheap, low wattage blender. Since then, I’ve been making green smoothies every day with a refurbished Vitamix.

    Thank you for your tips and recipes (Beginner’s Luck is my favorite so far) and for the opportunity to win a life changing aide.

    I’d like to win this blender for my friend with terrible stomach issues. Maybe she’ll be able to enjoy eating again, and even gain a little weight.

    I have NOT yet had the chance to let green smoothies change my life!! I TRY to blend good smoothies but my blender is…well am I allowed to say it’s junky? For it is. It doesn’t really make anything very smooth at all, and that is how I stumbled in here, you KNOW how badly I NEED a Blendtech! Yes you do know! So here I am, hoping… I will take the challenge!

    Before coming across the green smoothie challenge, I used to buy a mixed bag of frozen fruit and V8 Splash to make smoothies. Now I am making healthier smoothies with so many different ingredients. I would have never though about using coconut water or almond milk in a smoothie. I even find myself buying more fresh fruit (I have fallen in love with fresh pineapple.).

    My husband bought a small blender for me to use at work (not as good as my Ninja, but it helps me stay on track). I cut up my fruit, put it in a ziploc bag and freeze it. I divide my greens into bags also. Now if I am running late I just grab my pre-made bags and make my smoothie at work.

    Thank you so much for helping me find a way to eat healthier and get my daily fruits and vegetables in.

    I am not a big fan of green vegetables, but I have enjoyed the smoothies a lot. This is to a point that I miss when I don’t take them. I am a Fibromyalgia patient and since I am drinking the green smoothies, the pain I had is almost gone!!! Started to decrease the amount of pain killers I take!! Woohoo!!

    I love green smoothies. I have done the 30 day challenge, bought the recipe cards and have kept making smoothies even after my 30 day challenge.
    I have a learning disability and it has really helped with balancing stress and other things in life. Having a spinach and blueberry smoothie, or a banana and kale smoothie every morning really has helped me clear my skin, feel better, and I have noticed a decrease in my stress level because I have been drinking smoothies. Thanks incredible smoothies!!!

    My alcohol cravings completely disappeared within 6 weeks of eating a 99% raw whole foods nutrition lifestyle with smoothies EVERY morning and often times in the afternoon too. It was truly a Miracle! Once I gave my malnourished body and mind the nutrients that it was crying out for, my body was able to naturally heal itself. Discovering smoothies allowed me to reclaim my personal freedom, power and I got my life back!

    One of the key things that I found out thorough my own experience and my studies is that my brain chemistry was nutrient deprived from over a decade of alcohol abuse and physical damage that I caused my body. As a result, my body kept desperately seeking out more alcohol no matter how much I wanted to stop drinking or support groups I attended. That’s because the more alcohol I drank, the more nutrient deprived I became and therefore my cravings kept getting worse. It became this ongoing vicious cycle that would of never ended if I didn’t discover what to feed my body what it needed.

    That’s why I am so passionate to wanting to share this knowledge with people everything I know and learned about how they can also finally heal their long term alcohol cravings and dependency to alcohol.

    People need to know the Connection between Nutrition and Addiction and how it is the missing link of MOST alcohol programs. It’s not people fault that they keep relapsing, they just haven’t been giving the right information of feeding their bodies nutrients through smoothies.

    I want to have my own blender and so that I don’t have to borrow anymore. I really want to start doing free workshops in my area to teach people that want to stop drinking alcohol not only how to make different types of delicious smoothies but also teach them the different foods that heal cravings and combat the symptoms that come with alcohol withdrawal like depression, anxiety, and etc.

    I feel truly blessed to have figured this out and now I am finally in control of my own destiny and in the flow of the Universe. So it’s important to have my own blender to help other people do the same.

    My Message:
    What I thought was once impossible, is totally possible! The journey to true freedom from alcohol cravings/dependency/addiction & living your best life doesn’t have to be long, hard or even gloomy. It can actually be a lot faster, easier, fun and DELICIOUS than people have experienced until now. It’s time for people stop struggling, feeling powerless, and living with shame because nothing has worked for them so far. It’s not their fault, they just have not been giving all the information.

    I want to change people’s lives from alcohol addicted to smoothie addicted one smoothie sip at a time.

    Thank you so Much for the consideration.

    All I can say is… WOW.

    Stumbling across your website was such a fortunate accident! You have transformed me from a vegetable-hater to a green smoothie lover! In addition to beginning each day with your smoothie for breakfast, I research green smoothies online and have a second for lunch. I have now added most every fruit and vegetable to my diet and feel amazing! This has resulted in weight loss, glowing skin, and my energy level is soaring! Additionally, my peri menopause symptoms have lessened: less frequent hot flashes, night sweats have vanished, and the dreaded “brain fog” has cleared!!!

    Even more news… my excitement over the nutritious benefits of green smoothies has influenced friends, my boyfriend, neighbors and family to join the green smoothie movement. All are reporting feeling fabulous! My second grade students watch me drink two green smoothies a day and have been asking to taste them. Their parents are now asking about the smoothies:)

    If chosen to receive the new blender, I will give it to my next door neighbor, Anna. As a breast cancer survivor, she really wants to begin blending to boost her health. She can’t afford a high quality blender & it would be a real blessing for her. Truthfully, I really want the blender (my DREAM blender!) but Anna really could use it.

    Cheers to the green smoothie!!!

    I LOVE green smoothies! My husband and I have soo enjoyed the green smoothie challenge! It really has changed the way we eat and what we crave! I have noticed a big change in my energy level between breakfast and lunch, as well as feeling full and satisfied. We also love the response from our 3 year old daughter! She is excited to try new smoothies each morning and we are so happy to pass along good eating habits at a young age. Thank you so much for what you are doing, it is a great great thing!

    I look forward to having my smoothie every day…sometimes two! I believe they have helped me reach for a piece of fruit at the end of a long day instead of something not so good! Thank you both!

    Green Smoothies have changed my life. I try to have one every day, and I am feeling so much better because of it. You have made me a smoothy lover. I never used to eat kale, but now I love it. Thank you!

    I found simple green smoothies while browsing for smoothie recipes on Instagram, I’ve started researching on the healthy lifestyle choices I wanted to adopt and green smoothies caught my eye. I’ve been blending away since. Suscribed first to the newsletter and the 30 day challenge, browsed the site for tips in prepping and blending smoothies and overall my health has improved so much that I bought the recipe cards as a thank you to Jadah and Jen. (It’s not much but it’s something). I’d love a blendtec since my blender is 400 watts only and has a hard time delivering smooth results.

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have a variety of digestive issues, and often eating things I like leaves me feeling like crap, but I never have to worry about a green smoothie leaving me feeling bad. In fact, they are my go-to when my system needs a break.

    Simply put :), green smoothies has made my system run more smoothly. For anyone that has issues with “going” on a regular basis I would definitely say try doing a green smoothie everyday. It has helped a problem that has occurred frequently since I was a child. My fav recipes have been ones that combine spinach with mango and pineapple!

    I am in graduate school + work as a supervisor for a before/after school program for kids k-5th. I noticed that I never had any energy. I am always on the go and knew that something had to change. I try to stay away from coffee and energy drinks so after some research I discovered Simple Green Smoothies! Life saver, let me tell you. Not only did my energy increase but my body just felt better. (I actually started working out again which hasn’t happened in over a year.) After a couple of months my fiance joined my green smoothie adventure and I now blend for the both of us! The blender I use is good but you still will find the occasional chunks (which my fiance HATES!). I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a blendtec! With school + a part-time job it’s just not in my budget, but I committed no matter what! Thanks Simple Green Smoothies team!

    My grandma started making green smoothies a couple of years ago. I thought they tasted terrible. And then a few months ago I found simple green smoothies. And even before the 30 day challenge I have tried to drink a smoothie everyday and I’m hooked. I feel great in the morning and extremely organized. Now I even have my boyfriend hooked which is great because I’m so excited about the smoothies and it makes me happy that he is excited too! The smoothies are a great alternative to my normal breakfast and it fills me up so I’m happy all day long!

    Green smoothies have forever changed my smoothies and I will never look back! I used to (and still do to an extent) struggle with my consumption of leafy greens. Adding them to smoothies is such a fun, easy and DELICIOUS way to incorporate more leafy greens into your life. Plus, it is amazing to see friends and family love them too. Nothing makes me happier than giving the gift of health to my loved ones.
