    I seriously can’t thank Jen and Jadah enough! Before trying SGS, I had dangerously high blood pressure, rarely ate veggies and never got any exercise. One day, I was simply tired of being tired and vowed to make a simple change and try SGS. A month later, I’ve lost weight and inches, increased my exercise and most importantly, my blood pressure is now a normal 116/75! I’m combining mostly veggies and a little fruit and it’s become a regular part of my day! Everyone can make the change and I hope you do. :o)

    I make a green smoothie every morning using your recipes. I not only feel full until lunchtime (as before I would be snacking all morning at work) but I no longer get the “2:00 sleepiness”. I have energy to keep going all day and energy to run when I get home from work. I can tell the difference when I skip the smoothie in the morning. Thank you guys for helping me become a healthier me! Also, I would totally give that Blendec a loving home. Xoxo

    Green Smoothies have helped me gain energy and eliminate a lot of junk food in my diet! I now feel fuller longer and have the energy to workout daily! I have never been a veggie person and definitely not a spinach or kale person but now I don’t mind them 🙂

    I have at least one quart a day & it’s the best thing I have incorporated! There’s no way I would get that many greens or healthy foods in if it weren’t for these blends!… they’re so satisfying & totally does away with my cravings! They give me a buz so I have to be careful not to drink them late…very energizing!

    I started training for my first marathon at the same time I started your 30-day Green Smoothie Challenge. Your smoothie recipes taste amazing and gave me the boost to start a healthy training program. I lost 5 pounds incorporating your smoothies and it really helped me kick start a great season of running. I have seen my speed increase and I feel better about my body overall. Green smoothies are great at any time of day and I have even got my boyfriend to start drinking them with me. Thank you for all the support and recipe ideas as I continue my journey toward my first marathon and overall well-being. Cheers!

    Man…I never thought that I’d ever be one that could drink these. Now, I crave them. I try to come up with my own creations and I really enjoy that there are so many varieties. And, the best part is getting so many servings of fruits/veggies in one gulp!

    Thank you both for being the ones to introduce these to me! I’d love to win a better blender than my little bullet. 🙂

    Green smoothies have really helped me incorporate extra greens and all their goodness into not only my life, but my husband and toddler’s lives as well. I love when my two year old asks me for his “green drink”. Green smoothies have given me the boost i need during mid-morning or late afternoon snack cravings as well. Overall, a great addition to our diet!

    I started drinking smoothies in January. I feel so much better, with more energy. I have my kiddos and hubby on board and everyone starts their day with a smoothie now. My diabetic son had a low blood sugar and instead of grabbing a sugary drink, he requested a protein smoothie to bring it up! You gals have been a blessing, and we are HOOKED on smoothies!

    Feeling good in this 3rd week of the smoothie challenge! Having a baby has drained me of all my energy. Ive been exhasted for months. I just reached my babies first birthday and decided it was time to do something for me! I feel healthier already! I already know this has become a lifestyle change as opposed to a 30 day change.

    I started to follow Green Smoothie in January, 2014 when my son (15 months old) started to lose weight and stopped eating baby food. I panicked, but his test results came normal, and then my sister-in-law sent me a link with the challenge and I signed up right away. It was great to have a shopping list and ready-to-try recipes e-mailed to me every week. I didn’t have to search for the recipes, figure out what I need and etc. The very first smoothie was Banana Berry Blast and both my son and I enjoyed it. He took his sippy cup and drank it all, and even took another one that day. I was a happy momma and we did all 30 days, tried different recipes and we loved it. His weight stopped dropping, and after couple of weeks he became himself, started to eat again and his weight started to climb up. At his 18 months check up our doctor was very happy that he was gaining a little bit of weight and looked so much better! We did April challenge as well and are in July one too, and absolutely love it! Thank you for sharing the Green Goodness!

    I started with your Green Smoothie challenge in January of 2014. I wanted a healthier lifestyle. I was tired of being over weight. I have participated in each of the three this year. Since starting, I have lost 37lbs. I have more energy each day and have a happier more positive outlook on life. Your smoothies are filling and energizing. Thank you for changing my life!!

    Every morning I either pull out a big mason jar of green goodness or, I whip up a batch of green beauty smoothie. I have been able to release toxins regularly by drinking it right after my lemon water and it has never failed me. I dropped around 20 pounds and while I was not looking to lose weight, my body did shed the pounds, I’ve felt more energy (this is a surprise since I’ve struggled with very low energy and blood pressure) and my face has cleared up beautifully.

    Green smoothies and juices rock!!

    Green smoothies have been a great way for me to get nutrients and energy first thing in the morning, especially with a busy schedule. My mother has been an avid believer in smoothies/juices since she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 30 years ago. We are dedicated to fueling our body with fresh produce and plenty of vitamins/nutrients. It is so nice to have the support and resources from Simple Green Smoothies. Thank you for keeping us motivated and on track to stay healthy and keep a clean, high functioning body!

    I started drinking green smoothies during a 30 day challenge last year. I loved the recipes, but I especially loved how they have me energy and made getting up in the morning a lot easier! This led me to do the SGS Cleanse that fall and now I am able to make healthier decisions for myself and for my family. I don’t even look at it as healthy or a special thing I do when I gain a little weight – it’s becoming a lifestyle!

    I have made smoothies for more than 20 years. However, I was so elated to find your site and enjoy the many varieties that are healthier for me. As a 68 year old female. This has help with many aging issues. Thank you for providing such wonderful recipes, information and your knowledge and wish each of us success in our daily lives.

    How have green smoothies changed my life? IN EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE! I’ve always been pretty healthy but green smoothies have improved my health, my energy levels, my mood, my body, my mind. It has been almost unreal but I am so thankful!

    As a side note: my surprisingly cheap but awesome blender which I made all of my youngest daughter’s baby food with, is finally dying so I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have an amazing new blender. Thanks for all you do!

    The green smoothies have helped me stick to my diet and not feel so hungry. Their also very tasty!!

    I’m a nocturnal person so I get really hungry late at night when I know I shouldn’t be eating. Now when I get hungry I blend up a green smoothie which not only keeps me full but has helped me stay in my balanced diet, gain extra energy and lose some weight (along with exercise).

    I have been making green smoothies for almost a year now and can’t go a day without it. I have always been low in vitamins and high in stress and no amount of supplements have helped (and that includes the one time I was on 6 calcium tablets a day, 2 magnesium tablets, 2 cod liver oil tablets, and 3 iron supplements at once). Nothing seemed to help and it was evident in my appearance. My skin was always dry and lacking color, and my hair and nails were brittle and lifeless.

    BUT, since starting the daily smoothies my life has changed! I have an enormous amount of energy, my skin is glowing, my hair is vibrant and flowing, and I have never felt better. That’s why I have stuck to it for so long. It really does make a difference in my day to day life. With the exception of a daily women’s supplement I have completely rid myself of those useless pills.

    These smoothies are so tasty and healthy and magnificent that I tell all my friends and family about them. I even have my green hating dad in on it now! Starting every day with a green smoothie keeps me feeling great and looking great and that motivates me to be more productive and positive about my day. What else could I ask for?! 🙂 <3
