    I started the 30 day challenge with my hubby (not his option) and we are hooked. I have kids and by 1pm I was tired and sleepy, now I have my smoothie for breakfast and have energy all day long. I feel better than I did before kids and have lost 7 Lbs as a bonus. My kids have the smoothie everyday with us, my little girl helps me make it every morning. Thank you for these great recipes.

    Starting my day with a smoothie is the best way to get the most servings of fruits and veggies before lunch! Plus they taste amazing! Since drinking smoothies I’ve noticed an improvement in hair,skin,eyes, energy and even mood. How awesome is that?!!

    I absolutely love drinking green smoothies every morning! It has changed the way I eat throughout the day, and I feel a noticeable difference in my energy. Not to mention every recipie is delicious!

    But the BEST part!! My 2.5 year old LOVES drinking them with me too!! He will not touch vegetables, but when he hears the blender in the morning he screams greennnn mommyyyy greeennn! Its amazing, and im so happy! I think his favorite is the pineapple upside down cake. He always asks for more pleaseee! Thank you ladies, im so happy you have given me the motivation to stick with this, I feel great 🙂

    I love green smoothies. They give me the energy I need during my long days of school and working out. During the challenge I have lost 5 lbs. which is pretty good for me. I am excited to keep blending and making new recipes to keep me green and healthy!!! Happy blending to you all =)

    Simple Green Smoothies has gotten a bit ridiculous in our house!:) Our fridge looks like the produce section, and I whipped up so many smoothies that I broke our blender!

    But these tasty treats showed up right on time! After giving birth to our daughter 8 months ago, smoothies took the place of that sugar-filled post-partum “pick-me-up” cup o’ joe. Then, the cleanse shed my last few preggo pounds and got me back on track to eating healthy after pregnancy. Now, the smoothie and cleanse recipes spark healthier eating in our home, and all those fruits and veggies get blended up for our daughter too! I’ve never eaten so many greens in my life! Thank you!!!

    Green Smoothies are changing my life! I make my blend in the morning and have my first serving with breakfast and then they second one in the afternoon when I get that “sweet” craving! I even bring my smoothies in mason jars while I’m in the car driving to and from activities! I LOVE GREEN SMOOTHIES! I decided to enter my name for the Blendtec725 because I can tell my blender is wearing out!

    My family and I started the green smoothie challenge 2 quarters ago. It took a few tries to get my 8 yr old to take a sip but he now asks for them! My twin boys were 9 months at the time and were just learning to drink from a straw and they loved them. I have the energy I need to keep up with my now 15 month olds and am now under my prepregnancy weight and you helped me get there! You guys are amazing for sharing these wonderful recipes with us! I have told all of my friends and family about your program! Thank you for all you do! Keep up the awesomeness!

    I have yet to join the tribe of green smoothie drinkers, but just by looking into your recipes and articles, I have become excited at how easy it looks. For some reason, health always seemed too difficult for me, so now I will be able to actually incorporate it into my life. Thanks!

    Ha ha! To be honest one of the things about green smoothies that has changed my life is feeding my 12-month-old daughter. When I first started feeding her I would only give her homemade puréed Baby food. But she’s getting more and more picky all the time! One of the only thing she loves to eat is homemade green smoothies! I just add a little bit of baby oatmeal or rice cereal and it’s the perfect fit her. That way the whole family can have one happy breakfast and be healthy same time! (My baby may or may not eat them for lunch and dinner too…

    Hi Jadah and Jen! I just graduated from high school and am making that stressful, tiring transition to college! When summer break started, I have to admit, I was pretty sluggish and lazy; I stayed in bed waaay too long and didn’t have much energy to be productive. Since I started the 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge, I am proud to say that is no longer the case! I wake up much earlier, excited to whip up delicious green smoothies for the day, go bike riding, jogging, or dance ballet around the house (I was in ballet for 14 years but stopped my senior year because of the crazy schoolwork load and I didn’t realize until recently how much I missed it!). I am going to college to study fashion design (you can check out my website to see some of my recent work), which will require tons and tons of energy and motivation. So far, my daily green smoothies have kept me energized and ready to tackle all the projects my imagination craves before summer is over and I plan to infuse this great smoothie routine, possibly with the help of a blender that actually makes SMOOTHies, while in college to keep me powered for my no doubt hectic schedule. I am so glad I started the green smoothie challenge, and thank you Jadah and Jen for the great motivation and delicious inspiration to make me a green smoothie lover for life!

    Yikes! I’ll be hApPy to do another 30 day challenge! #becauseIjustsignedup
    See I’d love to share with my massage therapy clients of My Day Massage to see how they too can have more energy by giving it a try. So I’ll lead the way. Using organic greens and shopping locally gives our area a boost too.Where is the kale and mangos mixed with organic yogurt and ice cubes? Now for my new Blendtec and making it happen. #sharingthelove, #thejoyofgreensmoothiesblentec30daychallenge2014

    More energy, less bloat, clearer focus, and a renewed mad scientist mentality (in the kitchen of course!)…

    Green smoothies have made transitioning to a healthier lifestyle fun and easy. Coming from a juicing mentality, blender smoothies have added another dimension to health made “Simple.” They really help when I’m “too busy” to eat and don’t want a whole lot of mess to clean up afterwards. My juicer has been gathering dust for that very reason, while my blender has gained new life.

    Thanks for the boost that my daily routine was sorely missing. Now, if only I had an awesome blender to chop that kale a little finer… 🙂

    I love drinking my green smoothies daily! I have more energy and vitality. I have good blood pressure and blood sugar levels. My doctor keeps telling me my medicine is doing a great job in keeping my blood pressure in check. I keep reminding her I am not on any medicine, ha. She assumes, with my age (approaching 58) I am on medicine. The recipes for the 30 day challenges have helped me make better tasting smoothies and stay consistent in drinking them the start of each day.

    Green smoothies have helped me better manage my autoimmune disease. My blender isn’t very good though, and winning a new Blendtec blender would be an amazing addition to my kitchen appliances as I continue on my journey to better health.

    Hi Jadah +Jen!! I just want to tell you that you were a good answer for my anemia!!! Yes, you are!! When I found you I had problems of anemia, so I was eating greens like crazy!! (and I was bored of them, you know, always the same) But you made this easier and fun with the challenge, I feel more energetic, happy and my skin is glowing. I can mix fruit with my greens and still have my iron that I need. Now I don’t have anemia and I’m still enjoying the challenge and the best part of all I have lost weight (something I could never do before) I want to thank you and also encourage you to keep doing what you are doing. You are on the right path!! Thank you!!!

    I love telling my friends about green smoothies, when they ask what are you drinking. When I have a sweet tooth attack I look at my smoothie recipes & what’s on hand. I was out of town for 4 days, really missed my smoothies. One of the first things I did once I was home, was to fix myself a double green smoothie for dinner— that was it and a big smile. Thanks for sharing green smoothies with everyone.
