    This is my first 30 day challenge and I am loving it. My two year old drinks the smoothies also. He says “mom I want green too”. I’ve also given my almost 9 month old some sips this week. I feel more energized throughout the day. I drink them twice a day. Thank you.

    Green smoothies have changed my life. I have more energy and don’t crave junk food anymore. My skin looks great and I feel just down right GREAT! Thank-you for all the challenges and I look forward to the future ones.

    Green smoothies have been the gateway for me into healthy living. But even when other healthy habits start to slack, I always stick with my smoothies. They’re just a super simple way to get loads of nutrients, with lots of options for variety. I never get tired of them. And even using exotic ingredients in them sometimes makes them feel like an indulgence!

    I love green smoothies! My 16 month old daughter and I have been having them every morning of the challenge and we love it! Sipping green smoothies on our walk to school has led to an exciting/fun filled day! We have not only incorporated new veggies/fruits through the green smoothie challenge, but this has also given me the courage to be more adventurous with new veggies for dinner too! So excited for the last 2 weeks of the challenge!

    I love starting off the day with a green smoothie. Not only do they taste amazing (MANGO GREEN-A COLADA is my fav) but they help me make better food choices throughout the day. Definitely a green smoothie lover for life now 🙂

    I was never one for vegetables — there are so few I enjoy eating. But doing a green smoothie for breakfast every morning has ensured that I receive the proper nutrition. I can happily say I have gone over 6 months without getting sick (even though I have a toddler in daycare) and feel healthier and more alert. The weight loss benefits are obvious for green smoothies but I think it’s so important to remember the other health benefits of making sure you consume all your vegetables and fruits. I wake up every morning knowing that my toddler and I are doing great things for our health, thanks to green smoothies!

    Green smoothies have completed revamped my entire diet. I am now more concerned with nutrient rich foods, and I have completely cut out processed sugar! In the process my skin and nails have done a 180 and I’ve lost 20 pounds! I don’t feel like I am dieting, thought – just feeding my body right!

    We’ve been making green smoothies everyday. All four of my children (ages 1, 3, 5, and 7) LOVE them and beg for a green smoothie! My husband and I also look forward to our yummy treat! Thanks for the wonderful recipes!!!

    I love green smoothies. Bought the recipe book and it’s a great way to get healthy with very little thought – just follow the shopping lists!

    Yay for blender contests!

    I’ve had a green smoothie every day since June 1 and it has changed my life! I’ve had issues with digestion since I was an infant and after about a week and a half of green smoothies, the symptoms were gone! It’s wonderful. I’ve gotten my whole family into it. When I drink them, I like to imagine them going through my body and healing me – because they do: mind, body, and soul! 🙂

    I make 2 servings and stick one in the fridge so it’s ready to grab and go the next day! I’m having fun with cute cups and straws too :). I have one at work and it’s cheaper and healthier than the fast food and restaurant choices I have for my break!

    Green smoothies are a great way to get my daily servings of fruits and veggies. I even serve them to my husband and kids and they LOVE them. Green smoothies are the perfect snack for me. I used to struggle with all sorts of cravings for chocolate bars, cakes, pastries and any other type of sugary dessert, but my daily 16oz serving of green smoothies has eliminated that. Green smoothies are filling, they help curb my cravings for sweets and they have totally helped give me better skin. Because of green smoothies I have more motivation to eat better during the day, workout and just to be kinder to my body. No matter how crazy life is around me, the one thing I know I can be in control of is how I treat my body. GO GREEN SMOOTHIES!!!!

    Simple Green Smoothies entered my life at the start of my pregnancy earlier this year. Throughout I have had 2 smoothies everyday, and not only do I know that my son gets the best, freshest nutrients, I have had the smoothest pregnancy! I feel so alive and full of energy, and am still able to exercise everyday into my third trimester. My favorite moments are when I feel my baby kick in reaction to one of the smoothies, he loves pineapples the best! Thank you for giving me a healthy pregnancy and for giving my son the best start in life!
