    Green smoothies were the catalyst for my plant-based diet. Sneaking in a few extra servings of fruits and veggies in a delicious drink made me realize all the benefits I would reap if I continued incorporating more into my diet throughout the day. I felt more energized, alert, and satisfied without being weighed down. Not to mention it’s been really fun getting creative with them!

    Green smoothies have become a family favorite in our household. If I miss a day my husband and kids all look at me like what happened. Lol! I love how easy my kids took to drinking their veggies and they enjoy taking it to school for an afternoon snack. I just freeze it the night before and its drinkable the next day. I mix a whole batch just for my husband and he drinks on it all day at work. I’ve felt more energy and not so many stomach issues like I used to have before green smoothies came into my life. Thank you for the best introduction to health from me and my family. We appreciate all that you do to make this important information available to us.

    Green smoothies has eliminated my “need” for coffee! They give me all the energy I need to get through my day. My toddler loves them as well and I know he gets all the delicious benefits!

    I love having my green smoothie every morning to start my day. I needed a way to get lots of iron from leafy greens into my diet to help with my anemia and a green smoothie is the perfect way to do it. Love all of your recipes so I can switch things up whenever I want to!

    I grew up in a household where “meat & potatoes” were basically all we ate. I never liked fruits & vegetables and was never forced to eat them. Now, in my 50’s, I am still not a fan and won’t eat most fruits & vegetables. Almost two years ago, I became a “Life Saver” with our local Blood Bank. I donate every 56 days. Unfortunately, I was turned away a couple of times because my hemoglobin was too low. Smoothies have not only helped me get the vitamins & nutrition I need, but they’ve improved my iron count. I don’t get turned away anymore. I can honestly say, I never would have eaten kale or spinach, but I never make a smoothie without at least one of those ingredients. I tell friends, who have kids that won’t eat their veggies, get them to drink them! Unfortunately, I only have that little upside down “as seen on t.v.” blender. I would love to win the Blendtec!

    Green smoothies have been a lifesaver! I hate vegetables and have a hard time getting enough fruit, so this was the answer for me to get more of both! They make me feel so much better and help me make better food choices all day!

    I have so much energy after starting my day with a green smoothie! And it’s the ONLY way I can get a wide variety of fruits & veggies into my 3 kids- it’s now the go to breakfast for all of us!

    I work nights and sleep all day on my days off I love to eat healthy an smooth away, I have more energy and my body is more energized. I’ve also lost more weight smoothing than dieting. I recently looked into a blendtec but could not afford it. But I continue to enjoy smoothing

    All I can say is that I just feel better….no more aches and pains all the time. I have more energy and don’t have the sugar cravings I’ve battled all my life. My blender leaves chunks or I’d eat more of them because even though I’m not a fan of fruits and veggies, these taste good!

    I’ve been making fruit smoothies for a month but learned about the 30-day green smoothie challenge this week. I made a bunch of spinach ice cubes and started adding a handful to my recipes. I can’t get over how easy it is to mask the taste of greens. I’m excited to see what the long term effects will be of adding more nutrients to my daily diet. Would love to get the Blendec in my arsenal of tools.

    GREEN SMOOTHIES RAWK!!!!! My story: Fed up with my weight, and asked to be Maid of Honor in an August wedding, I entered a Biggest Loser contest this past January. I was encouraged by my sister to join the February 30 day challenge and BOY WAS THAT THE JUMP START I NEEDED! In no time I felt less and less lethargic and more and more ready to get serious and get the weight off! I joined a boxing gym and a boot camp (where did that energy come from? 😉 ), changed my diet even more (compliments of the 21 day cleanse), have kept up a pretty darn healthy lifestyle (mostly, lol) and am down 34lbs and counting! Starting out, my goal was only 20 so this is HUGE! I LOVE GREEN SMOOTHIES! Jen and Jada, you RAWK! And by the way, I won the Biggest Loser contest as well! 🙂 Keep up the good health! lol. And thank you for sharing with the world!

    I love green smoothies! When I have to sit all day at my desk, starting that day off with a green smoothie helps me feel healthier and gives me more energy and keeps me focused. I find that when I start my day off with a healthy choice like a green smoothie, I not only feel full, but it also influences me to make healthier choices throughout the rest of the day.

    I love green smoothies because I don’t like eating breakfast but this is easy and I can get in a lot of nutrition!

    I eat a green smoothie every day for breakfast! It gives me plenty of energy. I’ve used many of the delicious recipes you provide, but I also use whatever fruit, liquid, and flavoring I have on hand! I add Greek yogurt, and even ground oatmeal for a complete meal. I love it!

    I love green smoothies. They definitely help me get in more fruits and vegetables, but most importantly, give me energy for the day.

    I use green smoothis as medicine. I have MS and I’m unable to take the disease modifying drugs. Since changing to a plantbased lifestyle I have more energy, sleep better and have no afternoon crashes. Green smoothies make you glow from the inside and out. It’s whole food nutrition. Thank you for all of the ideas. Every day it’s a new one and I look forward to green smoothies every day. It’s changed my family’s life. I crave smoothies now instead of cupcakes.

    Hi there! I’m twenty years-old and Green Smoothies have been my platform for my journey to healthy wholistic living. My best friend, who is vegan, has set an example for me. She teaches me the facts about each type of produce while grocery shopping, vegan recipes and healthy alternatives, and great smoothie combinations. I love smoothies and have progressed to making ones that excite my taste buds! I have a newly found comfort in drinking something that tastes delicious and has loads of nutrients. Every smoothie gives me an extra boost of energy that makes me feel great. I hope to transition to vegetarianism before the end of this year and I am certain green smoothies are a permanent part of my life.

    About two years ago, I started taking more serious my eating habits. As I did research online, I found that drinking smoothies with green leafy veggies was a great way to incorporate nutrients into my diet that I may have been missing. I was skeptical at first, because I wasn’t sure if I would like the taste. But I gave it a try and fell in love!! Even so, I only did this every once in a while and wasn’t very consistent. Then I stumbled upon Simple Green Smoothies on Instagram during one of the 30-day green smoothie challenges and decided to join in. I bought a $30 blender from Groupon and went to the grocery store and stocked up on fruit and veggies. I blended everyday! It challenged me to get up in enough time to make smoothies in the morning because I knew getting all those nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, etc. would help me get a great start to my day. I’ve never been a morning person but I feel more perky and energized when I drink them. I had more energy and just felt better overall. I also saw my skin improve which was super exciting!! Skin issues have always been a struggle for me. They’re also great for post-workout snacks/meals. I eventually started prepping my ingredients and making smoothies at night, and that made my mornings smoother and I didn’t have to worry about fixing (or missing) breakfast. I bought some cute mugs and just had fun with it. Of course the green color made inquiring minds ask “what are you drinking?!” so I got the chance to share my recipes (some I got from SGS) and encourage others to try it. Before long I was seeing friends and family members drinking them and loving it! I never make a smoothie now without spinach or kale! Green smoothies have been a great addition to my lifestyle and really encourage me to eat healthy all around! Even though it’s getting a little harder with my economical blender becoming less efficient, I’m still blending until I get something better (like a Blendtec!) Thanks for the challenge Jadah & Jen 🙂
