    I have been a fan of green smoothies for a few years. My problem is I always make the same 2 or 3 smoothies. I get bored quickly and then stop making them for a while. I recently discovered simplegreensmoothies.com, and I am hooked! I love having a new recipe to try everyday, and receiving an email with the shopping list is so helpful! My family has been having a green smoothie everyday since I discovered this website! The thing that makes me happiest is my 1 year old loves the smoothies! She is getting to that age where she is picky about what she eats, but she has yet to refuse a smoothie. I no longer have to worry about her getting all the nutrients she needs because I am sticking fruit, veggies, flax, chia, etc in her smoothie everyday and she gobbles it up! Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes!

    I have been keeping up with the green smoothie challenge, and the best way to describe it is ENERGIZING! I start my day at 4:30am when my alarm goes off, and I have started to look forward to that boost of energy from my green smoothie. All the recipes are so delicious. The added bonus, is that it has helped out my digestive system as well. Thank you ladies

    I love veggies but the thought of putting anything green into a smoothie did not sound appetizing. However I signed up for this site hoping that this was something I could do. I am figuring out which recipes work for my tastebuds. I am making baby steps toward a healthier life that will reverse my type 2 diabetes and get me in a bathing suit without scaring others on the beach.

    I just started the 30 day challenge on July 1, and its been such a pleasant surprise to drink bright green juice and love it. There is NO way I’d be able to do this without the support of SGS. The shopping lists and recipes are perfect (and helpful!), the little bits of advice really helps and the site has literally everything I could need to stay successful. I even managed to get my husband on board and he’s doing the challenge with me! I honestly feel like it was such a needed first step to get me to a place where I feel in control of my health. Shortly after I started to feel awesome from my morning smoothies, I got a pedometer to start tracking movement, started drinking more water and actually started paying attention to the other things I eat. Why shovel in junk after putting so much good in with my smoothie! Its honestly been such a swift but wonderful change, just by blending up some greens. I cannot even thank you enough. The road to health can be really intimidating, but when you start with something manageable (30 day challenge), build in support and simplicity (website and emails) and a lot of positive reinforcement, its amazing what can happen!! Thank you 😉

    I started drinking green smoothies in the April challenge and LOVED getting more fruits and veggies in, and experimenting with flavors. Once the challenge was over, I started skipping days on occasion and–to my surprise–I really noticed. I had no energy and I craved nothing but sugar and carbs. It was crazy! I did not expect to see such a big difference from one little drink.

    So now, I am a (daily) green smoothie fan for life! I feel amazing when I drink them and it is an awesome way to use up all of that fresh farmers market produce that I bring home every Saturday morning.

    I love experimenting with flavors and have had only one “fail” so far. (Did you know that when you blend red beets with green spinach and avocado, you get a very unappetizing mud brown? I drank it anyway, but won’t make it again.)

    Would love a Blendtec. My smoothies are chunky and full of fiber that my ancient blender just can’t deal with. Would be awesome to experience a smooth smoothie!! =)

    Being a former college athlete and closet health freak I am, green smoothies have created an avenue for me to maintain a healthy, rich diet in a fun way. I certainly helps me worry less about my servings of fruits and vegetables so I can just enjoy them for what they are, nutrient dense love for your body!

    I have loved getting these recipes from you. They are delicious! I am really in need of a Blendtec blender. Right now I am using just a regular blender. But it does not chop everything up smoothly like you and others have said that a Blendtec does. I am a school teacher so my pay in not great and a Blendtec is so expensive. This next school year, 2014-15, I will have kids from 10-3 straight without a lunch break. So these recipes will save me. I feel that I can make the smoothies up in the morning and keep them in the refrigerator that is in my classroom. Then during the students’ snack time I can drink the smoothie for my lunch. These recipes will help me get the fruits and vegetables that I will need in my diet. Thank you again for putting this site and sharing these recipes! I am one happy teacher! 🙂

    I’m a college student, so keeping a healthy lifestyle is a daily challenge. I did my first green smoothie 30 day challenge in 2012, and I’ve done every one since! I love how easy it is to add good nutrients into my diet, and if I slip up I know I can easily make a smoothie and get right back on track (they are especially helpful after a long weekend!). I’ve got my friends, family and even my boyfriend (who thought they looked disgusting) having green smoothies all the time, and I recommend you guys to anyone trying to start drinking green smoothies! I even got a text from a friend the other day saying “I’m starting my day with a green smoothie, I’ve become you.” Being a student means ‘blendin on a budget’, AKA using my mom’s hand-me-down blender, and this new blender would be an awesome addition to my kitchen, I’d use it every day!

    Green smoothies changed my life! I am feeling energetic and satisfied all day. I was never able to get the amount of leafy greens,fresh fruits and vegetables in my daily diet. I’m a busy mother of five kids and making green soothes has been my only successful way to be heathy. I love that I can grab my smoothie and continue to be on the go.

    Following a career change I caught myself in a state of bad eating habits and unhappy with my body and energy. When I found out about simple greensmoothie it all changed. I purchased the flash cards with the smoothie recipes and began to make them every morning for myself then shared with my mom. My body,mind and energy levels changed completely and I now can’t go a day without having one. I keep sharing the site as well as the recipes with friends and it truly makes a difference. Thank you!!!!

    Green Smoothies have helped me take my fitness to a different level. It has helped me add in nutritional fruits and vegetable to my diet without it being too much of a hassle or too much of a burden to eat healthy all the time. It has also helped me gain energy throughout the day! It is great for a breakfast and amazing as a snack. Having green smoothies in my diet has been an amazing and tasty lifestyle change! 😀

    My husband and I have been doing smoothies off and on for a few years, and have always felt better when we have at least one every day. We make them for our kids too, but sometimes “winging it” ends up with some interesting combinations that they won’t drink! Following the Simple Green Smoothies challenge has been a great way to help us get back on track and have a fail-proof guide to follow. Whether we use one of your delicious recipes or make or own combination following the Simple Green Smoothie Formula, we always come out with a winning smoothie that everyone in the family will drink! It’s great to know that as long as we have at least one each day we’ve got a great jumpstart nutritionally, and having the added boost of energy helps us all make better choices. We’ve been trying to stick to whole real foods all around, and my boys are really starting to notice the difference when they eat healthier. They’ll even look at processed fruit snacks and treats at the store and say things like, “We don’t need that garbage in our bodies if we want to run fast, right mom?” It’s awesome watching them take responsibility for how their nutrition makes them feel! I love the great information found on your site, and I wold LOVE to win the Blendtec blender. It would be a fantastic addition to help us increase our healthy lifestyle as a family!!

    The Green Smoothie challenge has liberated me. I have Crohn’s Disease and having 1 Green Smoothie per day has helped my digestive system tremendously. I don’t miss a day! Thank you so much for challenging me to eat and drink healthier!

    I signed up for the 30-day challenge in Spring 2013 and LOVED the recipes, not to mention the ease of incorporating smoothies (and, thus, tons of fruit and veggies) into my diet. After moving to a new city and starting a new job my diet – and smoothie making – fell by the wayside due to crazy hours. Now I’ve quit the job and am moving back and am so looking forward to restarting my smoothie habit. Best of all, my boyfriend is totally into it too!
