    Greens smoothies help me and my kids to get all the nutrients from the greens without even knowing it! I love to have one for breakfast or snack and it helped my skin tremendously!

    I have loved the Green Smoothie Challenges! Participating in the challenges has helped me get into the habit of drinking smoothies every day. My students even started asking me what type of smoothie I was drinking…it’s great to be able to set an example of a healthy lifestyle for them!

    Green smoothies have helped me get up in the morning and give me enough energy to get through the day. I make better choices throughout the day–broccoli instead of fries, almonds instead of chips–and I feel healthier and, most importantly, happier. Plus, I love trying new fruits and vegetables, and smoothies are the perfect way to experiment!

    Talk about more energy!! I feel like I could run a marathon after drinking a smoothie-two is perfect to sustain energy through my day. Also they are delicious and fun to share with others. Just because you’re drinking greens doesn’t mean it has to taste like it!

    Green smoothies have not only changed my life, they have changed my family’s life. My boys get their fruits and veggies much easier through green smoothies than just eating them raw. I have shared my love for green smoothies so often that many of my friends come to me asking how to get started or where to find good recipes. I send them to simple green smoothies of course! Thank you for the great recipes and the challenge to stay healthy!

    Smoothies have provided me a way to get more greens in to my toddler and my diet.

    So…21 days…That is how long it has been since I swore off unhealthy food and drinks. I gave up soda pop and coffee cold turkey.

    I started taking vitamins, and walking more each day.

    I realized how detrimental I was being to myself even though I ate my own garden produce and raised most of my own meat.

    I promised myself a new, top of the line blender when I reached one month as it has been a definite learning curve with two vacations planned in that one month time frame. But, guess what?! I am kicking butt and have stuck to it.

    Here’s to a better year at age 30 than ever before!!

    Last January I decided things just had to change so I began my transformation to become healthy and fit. Incorporating green smoothies into my lifestyle was a big part of my plan. 6 months later I have lost 52 pounds and am still going strong. Thank you green smoothies …Best friends for life! 🙂

    Smoothies were not just a way to slim down, or be trendy. They were a way for me to recommit to myself. Making a smoothie everyday has been something I have shared with my skeptical boyfriend (who now ADORES smoothies, and asks for them everyday) and my mother (the woman who won’t try an avocado, and is skeptical of my colorful mason jars). They both have been astounded at the energy and general “feel good” feelings that have gotten from smoothies. It was such a feat to get myself to eat healthier, be more conscious of my fruit and veggie intake, but to have converted the people in my life, who I love and want to prosper, into smoothie addicts as well? That’s just icing on the cake. Bringing health, joy, and a sense of community doesn’t seem like something a smoothie can do…but it truly did. Thank you for spreading this joy around because it’s contagious. 🙂

    Being pregnant, I’ve found that I really need to take care of my health and make sure that I’m getting enough nutrients from dark, leafy greens, so that my baby is getting those nutrients she needs too. Green smoothies are an appetizing, delicious, and refreshing way to get those greens into my diet… a diet that is so heavily relied upon by another life!

    I love the variety of the smoothies and find that I have more energy throughout the day. Starting the day with a smoothie also helps me stay on track by eating good, wholesome foods all day long! Thanks for the great recipes! And of course, I’d love to win a Blendtec!
