    I came across green smoothies and your website in March of this year. I had seen a few recipes but nothing that was really interesting until I found you. I had my first one and was hooked right way. I was so excited about the green smoothies I was having one a day right off the bat. I was talking about them so much my sister finally willingly tried one and she too has been hooked since April. Her enthusiasm has inspired her boyfriend to finally try them. He hates everything green and most things health but he’s also fallen in love and is now on a smoothie a day diet. Since starting on the green smoothie train I have lost nearly 20 pounds and while I am aware that this isn’t solely thanks to the smoothies I do know it’s made it much more fun, interesting and tasty to eat my fruits and veggies. The recipes are all so different and tasty there is one for every mood and every time of year. I can’t even remember a time before them. We’ve invested in paper and metal straws, many mason jars and we are holding our breath that our blender continues to live. We are making them in batches every other day to keep up with the smoothie demand in our house. And they are such a great conversation piece. Anytime I’m drinking one in public people want to know what it is, so we are spreading the word one 16oz jar full at a time!!! Thanks for all your hard work!

    I just started following simple green smoothies in instagram and love all the recipe ideas! I get bored eating the same things, so the daily recipes offer me an easy way to stay on board with the challenge! I am dying to try out a Blendtec, since I have heard amazing things about them!

    Green smoothies have changed my life ever since I went on a 30 day detox. I was the person who never thought I could do it – I LOVE food, like I really really love eating. Once I completed that detox, something just “switched” in me. I continued to make the green smoothie every morning for breakfast. It gets me through the day and I feel so much better and more energetic. I believe it’s helped me also clean out the “clutter” in my life – spiritually and emotionally. Green smoothie’s ROCK!!! Thank you Blendtec for this chance to win a free Blendtec because I have wanted one for the last 2 years – I could really take things to the next level if I had one. Thank you, Lisa

    I have a pretty hectic schedule and sometimes in the moment of grabbing something to eat the nutritious options aren’t always at arms reach! (I mean seriously how many McDonalds salads can you eat?!? Sheesh! ) In all seriousness, I absolutely love the green smoothie challenge! I usually double the portions that we make for the week and it becomes breakfast/ or a healthy snack either for myself or friends and co workers who want to lead a healthy lifestyle as well.

    (my personal thanks) U guys are truly something special! Your creativity and passion reflects through the recipes given…and personally speaking… this movement means means a lot more than just getting veggies into your diet…it’s steps closer to becoming better versions of ourselves. Thanks for showing us the way. 😉

    This is my first green smoothie challenge! I love it so far. I love that the smoothies are simple and delicious. The best part is that my 1.5 year old son can’t get enough of them!! I’ve been coveting the blendtec for a long time. Would love to have such a great appliance!

    Green smoothies have replaced my unhealthy breakfast habits. Most mornings I don’t even need coffee anymore (which is a big thing!). My son also enjoys the smoothies in his lunch while the other kids at camp are eating candy and snack cakes for breakfast, this is one of my favorite benefits. I love the recipes I’m getting each week in my email, thank you!!

    When I first heard of green smoothies, I was not excited. I love veggies and fruit, but blending everything together did not sound good. Even so, I chose to join the 30 day challenge, and I started my journey with a regular blender. I found out that I like green smoothies. They are tasty, good for my body, and the challenge helps me to consider varieties of drinks I can make. I would love to win this blender so that I can continue on my green smoothie journey, and continue to be an inspiration to those around me who seek encouragement from my lifestyle.

    I was first attracted to green smoothies becuase of their beautiful color (OK, so I’m visually driven…) but once I started researching them I was intrigued enough to try them on a daily basis. The transformation I’ve experienced has been significant and I’m very encouraged. My fatigue is letting up, I’m sleeping like a rock, and I feel “clean” inside my head and my body. The smoothies are tasty and satisfying. I’m losing weight (yay!) and I know when I go for my next labs, they will be significantly better. As a diabetic, I’m excited about the positive effects I’m seeing in my blood sugars, too. I’m becoming a RAWK star more quickly than I’d imagined! As an RN, I will be spreading the word (I think the doctors need to hear it first!) and I’m grateful to have found you ladies.Looking forward to getting better every day!

    I started the Green Smoothie Challenge on July 1st. and I’m hooked! I love that I’m getting so much nutrition in one, simple, easy to make smoothie. I feel so healthy and my skin seems to be glowing. I also recruited my husband to take the challenge as well ( he hates spinach) and he’s enjoying them so much everyday he asks me “is it smoothie time?” haha! It’s just a great way to get your fruits and veggies daily. So good for you and to my surprise..very delicious as well. I will definitely be sharing this with all my friends! Thanks so much for inspiring us in all this health and goodness! We Love It! : )

    Green smoothies help me get the essential vitamins from leafy greens in my diet. I like salads but I can’t eat them everyday but a green smoothie everyday? Bring it on. I love adding OJ, pineapple, and strawberries to spinach. It’s such a great morning pick-me-up!

    Green smoothies have definitely had a positive impact on my life. I notice that I feel much more energetic after having them. Also I love that I’m getting so much of my fruits and veggies at one time.

    A friend of mine posted an article about the benefits of drinking green smoothies. Wanting to shake up my diet and start eating healthier, I figured green smoothies were the best way to go. I discovered the 30-day green smoothie challenge through another friend and was excited to learn there was a challenge coming up. Eager to begin, I started a day early. For the past 2+ weeks, green smoothies are what I crave for breakfast. I’ve found that I’ve even been craving healthier foods for other meals (just like you said I would!) and my overall diet has become better. Each and every day I look forward to feeling great in the morning after getting started with my green smoothie. I always make two servings in case I want a snack later on in the day. I’m loving all of the variations with the recipes that are sent to me each week. They’ve gotten me excited about all the different ways I can enjoy my smoothies depending on what’s in season. Can’t wait to keep going with the challenge and continue on my journey to being healthier and feeling great! Thank you for making it so easy for people like me 🙂

    This is my first round with drinking green smoothies. It was mentioned to me by a buddy of mine over dinner. I told him I would get on board and glad I did. My energy levels have increased tremendously; I am currently training for a 10-12 mile mudder run/obstacle course and the smoothie is the ideal drink. The green smoothie provides all the nutrients and vitamins I need while still keeping it light. I love the flexibility in the mixture of the drinks which allows me to be somewhat creative in the mixes I use to concoct the “perfect green smoothie”. Drinking green smoothies aren’t only a challenge for me but have become a way of life. “Go Green Smoothie Family”.

    I started making green smoothies after I had my second child. I was finding it hard to eat, let alone eat healthy, with a 2 year old and newborn. I am hooked! I have 1 everyday. My now 3 year old loves them as well. Her favorite color is green and she will drink anything green that I put in front of her. My now almost 11 month old has had some as well. We are still using our old school hamilton beech blender so we cannot make everything as it can’t handle beets and other hard veggies, but it does the trick with simple smoothies. As a stay-at-home mom I can’t go out and buy a blentec or vitamix. We would love a new blender so we can expand our green smoothie world.

    I love love love these smoothies! So yummy and nutritious they make me full and I end up eating less, I add some cucumber for extra fresh taste. We’ve been using our old blender but it works! So grateful for this! 🙂

    I am loving the 30 day challenge! Having a green smoothie in the morning has helped me get started living a healthier lifestyle. It’s easy to just blend and go if I’m having a rushed morning, but I’m still getting a nutritious breakfast. I think what I like the most is that I’m introducing new fruits and vegetables to my diet that I probably would have never tried.
