    I didn’t realize how yummy green smoothies were until I started making them and drinking them. It was an eye opening experience. They are also good for you too so it is a win win situation for all involved. My kids aren’t gross out by the green color anymore and my husband even enjoys drinking them. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!!

    Wow! A new blender, I would LOVE that!!!

    I never thought a smoothie, much less a green smoothie would keep me so satisfied!! I usually have it for breakfast every morning.

    I am using an older Oster blender that I have had for probably close to 15 years… It’s takes a while to blend, but I LOVE the smoothies and can’t imagine not having a smoothie every day!

    Thank you for changing my life!

    After trying my first green smoothie, I was hooked! I’ve done several challenges and love the new recipes and the tried and true ones. I love feeling healthy, more energized, and having something so tasty I crave one every morning. Green smoothies are easy and it’s the perfect way to start my day. 🙂

    Green smoothies just make me feel HEALTHY! I feel better about myself and make better choices about what I’m putting into my body all day long. And they are yummy, too!

    First of all, I was completely shocked when green smoothies tasted good. The biggest change in me was my freaking skin, which I gotta say, is great. I feel so much more hydrated and have no more sluggish feeling. I find that I crave those babies, and they are so easy. I use the super lame bullet – which is great and practical, just not ideal for green smoothies. Thanks!

    Green smoothies have changed my life in so many ways! One important way, is that I now look forward to breakfast & my green smoothie every morning. I used to be that person that wouldn’t even think about food until lunch time…just the thought of breakfast that early made me nauseous. Now, I get excited about what flavor I can create next. My go-to is spinach, coconut milk, banana (I prefer them frozen), and frozen pineapple & mango w/ a dash of chia seeds. Starting out eating something healthy for breakfast helps me make better decisions throughout the day as well. It’s funny the looks you get when you walk into work with a mason jar full of green-goodness! I’ve promoted this 30 day challenge & the website to everyone I know, because of all of the helpful tips and tricks that come along with it!

    i moved from northern europe to the usa and started at once to be vegan and to drink green smoothies. to be away from the well caring health system scared me to rawk. and what should i say i am healthy like a young bull (the only thing is, in a highway mall highway mall area its not that easy to ride my bike so my butt didnt get the workout berlins roads gave me but maybe i can make it one day to move again to a city, and then….)…i am totally thrilled by green smoothies and ancient grains, you become creative, that way of living has so much to give. well i know my english is not perfect but what i wanted to say is green smoothies are a big improvement to my health (and we cured a heart attack patient here in the house)…

    I start and end my day with green smoothie. In addition to the taste and texture of the green smoothies, what really excites me is the ease of preparation. Altering the recipes gets the creative juices in me flowing and I look forward to experimenting with new veggies/fruits.

    Honestly, I mostly started doing the green smoothies because my darling had been a little overly worried about our health (mostly mine), and wanted to make sure we were getting all our vitamins and etc, so he doesn’t have to worry about me just randomly dying on him, or something. While I haven’t exactly noticed much of a difference, it does make things easier (for me) by way of choosing the right things to eat. It’s a start, right?

    I’m not much of a breakfast eater and sometimes I have a hard time getting in at least half of my fruit/veggie requirements. Green smoothies have helped me get my daily fruit/veggie requirements in and I make it my breakfast. That way I don’t miss anything!

    Not to mention it gives me energy to make it through the morning.

    Green smoothies give me a boost of good energy in the morning that helps me to make it through the day. It feels to drink all those goodies 🙂

    All can say is Wow! never knew how much a green smoothie can change your lifestyle in just a couple days. Started my Green smoothie challenge July 2 when I bought my Vitamax! ITS A BEAST! I’ve got more energy, losing weight faster, and my stomach doesn’t hurt anymore like it used to. This is a blessing unto me and my lovely husband. Keep at it!!! Thank You.

    Started the green smoothies a couple weeks ago. I have truly enjoyed the experience. I find a smoothie stops me from wanting to much all afternoon. I was looking forward to the increased energy but have experienced a more overall improvement in my health. I look forward to continuing the smoothies.

    Your green smoothie recipes rock! I have more energy and I’m able to pack more veggies into my diet. Thanks for this great website!

    I love green smoothies because it’s the easiest way to get the nutrients I need! I can not stand the chewing and crunching it takes to eat a salad. I feel like I’m sitting there for an hour munching away just to get the vitamins and minerals from the vegetables! I have a hard time eating raw veggies without some sort of dip or dressing, and those dips and dressings seem to cancel out the goodness of the fresh foods I’m dipping! With the smoothies I can get a full serving of fruits and veggies in a matter of minutes without even thinking about it!
    I love the idea of using low sugar fruits too!
    I like to change up the recipes some times by adding things like carrots, cucumbers, avocado, and even green beans, peas, or broccoli!
    Smoothies are a great way to get my toddler nutrients as well.
    She loves the not-so-green green smoothies, and is warming up the the green colored ones now too!
    It’s near impossible to get her to eat a vegetable, and with green smoothies, she has no idea there are veggies in it! She will sit in front of her plate for an hour before she touches a vegetable, and now, she BEGS for a smoothie!
    I love how well the fruit covers the taste of the greens, and using low sugar fruits makes it even healthier. It makes the smoothie seem like a treat rather than a health ‘food’.
    I drink them in the morning when I’m extra hungry, after my workouts to keep my metabolism running, or after dinner to fill me up and not go for seconds!
    I am so happy to have found the world of green smoothies and the endless possibilities that comes with it!

    A green smoothie always puts me on the path to making better choices throughout the day. I like to have mine for breakfast or for an afternoon snack. They are also great after some exercise. Nothing beats a healthy reward!

    Green smoothies RAWK! They’ve helped increase my energy, are so simple, and are a great way of amping up my fruit and veggie intake. Did I mention they helped clear my face of acne too? Best part is, I’ve even got my husband whipping them up too! He loves mixing raw cacao in his! YUM-O!
