    I have been amazed at the transformation my body has made since starting drinking green smoothies. There were so many side effects that I noticed.
    First, I lost weight and inches, my rings don’t fit snugly any more, my high blood pressure has come down from 200/100 to 122/58, I sleep better, my clothes are getting bigger or I’m getting smaller, friends commenting on my weight lose (that’s when I know it’s real), I feel better, and I have more energy. Also I have no cravings for anything. I just want my green smoothie. Thank you so much for the introduction to a whole new lifestyle. I’m forever grateful! Be blessed!

    Green smoothies are the only way that I can start my day! Since I’ve started drinking them, I’ve seen so many positive changes in my body… inside and out! I feel better.. lighter! I’m going to bathroom more regularly (TMI, sorry), my skin is glowing and I have more energy. The 30-day green smoothie challenge and 21-day cleanse have been life changers for me. No looking back!

    Green smoothies have transformed my family! We are all very active, but eating a healthy breakfast has always been a struggle with two kids. Ever since we started following you on Instagram, the kids are excited to try new smoothies for breakfast…and ASK for spinach and or kale in their smoothies. I love that they are getting a healthy breakfast that fills them up and makes them more alert during school. Thank you!

    Green smoothies have changed both mine and my husbands lives. Although I have always enjoyed fruit, my husband has NEVER liked the texture of it. He’s 31 years old, and I believe his body has hated him for this!! Aside from the occasional banana, you would literally never eat fruit. For the last few weeks, we’ve been doing the smoothie challenge, and he’s been enjoying fruits he’s never tried before! I feel like one of those mom’s who has to buy those special cookbooks on how to “sneak” veggies into your kids’ meals 😉 I’m thrilled that he’s getting such a great dose of nutrition first thing in the morning! We are both feeling more energetic and positive about life in general… so glad to have your website as such a great resource!

    I have a green smoothie every single morning and I can feel my day starting out amazing … I think having the green smoothie sets me up for a healthier day than not having one. My body feels so energised and refreshed after a green smoothie that my mind wants to continue the green-ness (lol) and healthy feeling throughout my entire day, so I make better choices. Green smoothies are an amazing way to get tons of nutrients into my system – that’s why every single morning I give my body some green love via smoothies 🙂

    Hello, My name is Mariah Toussaint. I am going into my senior year of college and have always been a health nut. During my first few years of college I did not care anything about my health or what I put into my body, luckily for me I ran track at my University and so still had to do the workouts that I was told to do. As I began to learn more and more about track and field and about taking care of my body and getting better results I wanted to improve my overall health. I am still on a health journey trying to perfectly find a way to be a healthier Mariah. I have just begun this green smoothie challenge and am in love with the results. I feel my skin as been glowing, I have a lot more energy and am able to breeze my way through my track workouts. I actually enjoy hearing the buzzz of my blender as I combine almond milk, spinach and an array of fruits of which the recipe I have perfected myself. Thank you so much for introducing me to a new way of becoming a healthier me. 🙂

    I started making my own green smoothies about 2 years ago and just ended up getting in a slump with the same old recipe until recently when I joine the 30 day challange. The recipes are amazing and I never get bored with the same old boring recipe. Even my husband and son, who are super picky about what they eat, will try it with me if our old blender is able to get the chunks out. This has changed my eating habits and I am on my way to an even healthier lifestyle!

    I love the green smoothie challenges and the recipes! They are so delicious and they have helped me love veggies more. It’s such a great way to incorporate more veggies into my diet. I’ve been working out for 2 years and these smoothies have helped me with my digestive system and everything else. It’s amazing ! Many people get discouraged by the color and the way it looks but everytime I make someone try the smoothies they fall in love too! So hey you can’t judge a book by it’s cover! It’s definitely changed my life and I always drink one of these drinks daily 🙂

    I LOVE that they have gotten me on a new way of life. I feel so much better, sleep better, have a lot more energy and even been told by others that it looks like I lost weight and look Great. They want to know my secret! when I tell them eat more vegetables they always say we do not have time to eat right, I then say the simple green smoothie way of life they say DISGUSTING ! I tell them “if they already tried what I am drinking” you just had some and said that it was so good. They take awhile to believe me but then they are asking what is the web sight? and what is the next flavorful recipe.
    I can not THANK YOU enough.
    my son and daughters 15, 18 and 24 LOVE them also

    My boyfriend and I are new to the green smoothies. Barely 2 weeks old but already we feel the benefits. We have a healthier glow about us that only eating healthier can give. The smoothies are satisfying and no more worries of not getting enough fruit and veggies every day. We absolutely love this challenge which is not a challenge at all but a great incentive to live healthier and feel better overall. The best thing about it is the weekly recipes and grocery lists, they make shopping a breeze and preparation is easy as 1-2-3. We can only thank you girls for encouraging such yummyess and making it accessible to all. The green smoothie revolution is changing our lives!!

    Green Smoothies are something I’ve always enjoyed, but the 30-day challenge has given me so many more options and recipes, which has also caused my family to enjoy them. For me, driving them for thirty days straight helped to curb my cravings for bad sweets, energized my morning, and gave me a really nutritious option if I was too busy to sit down and eat lunch, or when I was facing a mid-afternoon lull where I might have otherwise reached for something unhealthy. Thanks for making it painless to create healthier habits!

    I recently took up the challenge but have been enjoying the smoothie lifestyle for about 6 month now. I have been overweight most of my adult life but since incorporating green drinks into my life I have lost over 60 pounds! Green drinks have been a life saver not only for me but my kids. I have more energy and I can actually run and play and do the things dads should be able to with their kids. the blentec would be awesome to continue my journey of healthy living.

    I was reluctant to try green smoothies. However, the recipes that I’ve tried from Simple Green Smoothies have been so delicious! My husband and I really like them. And even better, when our two year old hears the blender going, she comes running in and says, “You making a smoothie, Mom? I want some!” She loves them!

    I’m just a newbie to the green smoothie world. Just 1 week old. I was online looking for recipes because I had no clue where to begin. I wanted to try them out before I go out and get a new blender. I have made one every morning and take it to work. I’m so grateful for this website !!!

    Green smoothies have absolutely changed my life for the better! People who have not seen me for a while comment that my skin “glows.” That I look so “young.” I love that! Hubs and I have been on the green smoothie kick for 2 1/2 years now, and will never stop drinking the stuff. We always have one for breakfast – best way to start the day – good taste, great energy, and our bodies crave the incredible nutrition. Four out of five days a week we take a green smoothie to work for lunch. It is delicious and satisfying, and the most important thing is that Green Smoothies keep us well hydrated for our cycling in Arizona. When we do our long Saturday rides (30-70 miles), we always have an energizing green smoothie before the ride. I make tasty smoothies for my grandkids, and they LOVE them! Blending up green smoothies has made our grocery bill less, even though we are getting fresh food and more nutrition than ever. I think that is pretty life-changing for my budget! Fresh fruits and vegetables are much less expensive than hormone and antibiotic-filled GMO fed animal meats, and much better for our health! Thank you for all you do to promote our well-being, physical, mental, and spiritual!

    Green smoothies have changed mine and my family’s life by getting more nutrition into our diets. We have really changed our eating habits in the past year and have been so much healthier thanks to the kick start green smoothies gave us. It is a really easy and tasty way to get the needed nutrition in your everyday diet, even when you’re on the go! And a bonus, my kids LOVE them and they are very picky eaters!
