    Green smoothies have changed my life. They are knocking my morning sickness on the head which is a very welcome relief! Along with giving me extra energy which is needed at the moment. You know something is good when not only does it help with your pregnancy but when your 20 month old little boy runs around asking for ” more, more, more”

    Growing up I was very active. Once college hit, however, I was overcome with laziness and exhaustion from studying and doing schoolwork. When I found the challenge, I started to wake up more and began resuming my hobby, which is horseback riding. Recently I’ve started to learn how to hula hoop/trick hoop and my energy is off the charts thanks to the natural energy green smoothies give me!

    Since I have been on the Green Smoothie challenge for the last few months I have lost a 15 lbs and counting, I no longer crave the sweets that I used to eat, I haven’t had any candy since I have been doing the smoothies. I had been struggling to get my weight down without any crazy diet for so long and I was craving so much candy which is wasn’t helping at all. I am so happy with my progress, that I cried when got on the scale and saw how far that I have come all from drinking green smoothies for breakfast. I no longer have the need for coffee for energy anymore. I have also gotten a few of my coworkers and their families to join the fun. 🙂

    I was 10 months away from my wedding date and I had just finished grad school, thanks to which I had put on so many pounds. I needed to do something to change the way I looked and felt. Thanks to green smoothies and recipes from you guys (I follow your Instagram feed, which I love the first thing in the morning), I have felt so much more vibrant, my skin looks great and my habits have become healthy. I have at least one smoothie everyday 🙂 And I have my fiance and my mother hooked up as well 🙂 Green smoothies are the best thing in the world!

    I’ve been drinking a green smoothie every day for breakfast during the challenge and I feel like it’s helped me manage my weight. I was surprised that it keeps me full and awake all morning – without my usual morning tea! Will definitely be continuing this routine!

    This is my first time doing the smoothie challenge and I can’t believe how great I feel and how clear my skin has become. I have always loved smoothies but would struggle with what to put in them so I don’t drink the same smoothie every day. So happy to have found this site and this challenge, I am officially a SimpleGreenSmoothie devotee! Thank you!

    I started drinking green smoothies about 6 weeks ago and joined the challenge for fun, since i was already doing them anyway.. and to get new recipes! I have lost 18 lbs since I started drinking a smoothie everyday for breakfast. No going back for me now! 🙂

    I need habits to stay on track, but I get bored. Green smoothies are a habit with flavors that change every day.

    My husband and I started on the green smoothies last year. We have both lost weight and love the energy it gives us. I look forward to all the tips you give us and we love experimenting with the green smoothies. It is also a great way to get all those fruit and veggie in and they taste great. 🙂

    This is my first time doing the challenge – I actually JUST joined today! I’ve been drinking fruit smoothies for a while, now (just have to add some veggies to make them green smoothies), and I love that they’re my breakfast on the go – so quick and easy, and I just drink them during my commute or while at work!

    I started making green smoothies when I worked at a gallery from noon to 6:00. I wasn’t allowed to have food in the gallery and I wasn’t given any breaks (is that even legal?!) so I’d make 2 smoothies and put them in a couple bottles to drink through the day! That’s the only reason I didn’t die. Instead, I became addicted!

    I’ve had a lifeline battle with acne. It has left my confidence in the gutter, my face scared and I have mild social anxiety, made worse by bad break out days. I also wasn’t sleeping and began to have (very noticeable) stress related facial spasms.

    For so many years, I thought topical products, prescribed or over the counter, were the answer. Harsh creams, toners, even several rounds of Accutane didn’t fix the problem.

    I decided that all the doctors were wrong and whatever I was putting on the inside of my body did affects my outside appearance. I started drinking green smoothies. I noticed an immediate difference in my skin, my overall health, including my anxiety. I was no longer tired all the time. My facial spasms were being controlled without medication. My sleep is better.

    I now make a green smoothie at least once a day for my entire family. My husband isn’t a vegetable eater and it’s a great way to get him to eat more health. Our 11-year-old daughter is also a participant, which has helped alleviate some irritable stomach issues. My sister, who unfortunately has suffered two miscarriages this year, has also begun a green smoothie regimen on my recommendation. I hope that it helps her body find the balance it needs.

    I put my green smoothie in a jar and take it to work sometimes. People ask what I’m drinking and I tell them and mention how much it’s changed my life. My acne scarring and the long-term psychological affects are still with me but now that my acne is under control, I can begin to heal.

    Green smoothies have changed my life for the best, I have more energy and love the way they make me feel. Even if I’ve have a bad weekend on garbage I can always count on green smoothies to make it worth my while and bring me back around.

    I have been doing simple green smoothies for 5 months now. I wanted to add more greens to my diet and also to try stop drinking coffee. I was tired of waking up in a bad mood and not even wanting to deal with my kids until I had the 1st cup of coffee. I was tired of this and said I need to find something that can give me the same or better energy in the mornings. I have to say, I’m 5 months coffee free and feeling amazing. Thank you to simple green smoothies!!! I wake up super happy, grateful for life and excited to blend every morning. Aside from my mood, my hair and skin look beautiful!!! I feel like I can conquer the world after I drink my smoothie. To top it off, I also, have lost weight and belly fat!!! I’m so glad I found you guys! I brought my mom in for the ride and she stayed on and is feeling amazing! Thank you for the recipes, all the links to all the superfood goodies and all the fun jars and straws! 🙂

    These are some darn good smoothie recipes. I used to be all about Chips-a-hoy for snacks. I now have a smoothie instead of cookies and am satisfied for hours instead of looking for the next sugar fix.

    I love my Green Smoothie in the morning. This has been a change that is easy for me to stick to and feel good about. The recipes have helped a lot.
    I have a small personal size blender so I am only able to make one serving at a time. It would be great to have a Blendtec 🙂

    Green smoothies have changed my life. I am a cancer survivor so I wanted a healthy lifestyle change. Did some research and decided to try green smoothies. I lost 30 lbs in a little over 3 months. I gained energy, which helped get me motivated to exercise! The energy helps me keep up with my hectic schedule with a house, husband, 2 dogs, 2 kids and now another one on the way!!!! They taste great, surpress my appetite and cravings for sweets! I recommend them to everyone!!!!!

    Green smoothies are exactly what I need to start my day off right. A quick smoothie then I have all I need to get through school, work, exercise or whatever I have going on. Plus, the recipes make 2 servings so my husband can have one too! He didn’t trust that veggies in a smoothie could be any good, but now he loves them as much as me! (sure would be nice to have a sweet blender to make them smoother though… )
