    I have spent most of my life not eating too well. There were times I would even eat a pop tart and drink a can of pop for breakfast! Deciding to try green smoothies was a bold move for me, but I did it because I knew I needed a change in my diet. I wanted to also teach my kids, age 3, 4 and 5 how to eat healthy and give them the gift of health for the rest of their lives. Green smoothies get me (and my kids) the vegetables I need in a way that I enjoy.

    Green smoothies has been such a life changer not only for me but for my entire family as well!! My two daughters, ages 7 & 10, were skeptical at the new green drinks I would give them but now they can’t get enough!! It’s so much fun to have them help me choose and toss in ingredients for our smoothie of the day!! We even got dad to join in!! What a great way to get our fruits and veggies in!❤️It sure would be amazing if we had an awesome blender to make our smoothies even that much more delicious!! Thank you for all of your delicious recipies!

    I have no words for this feeling, so I’m going to make it brief. My 22 year old daughter has gotten her life back. She has lost over 20lbs, with another 100 to go. (we found your site about a month ago) She started a FB page to share her journey with other young adults looking for help, inspiration and direction. Only a a parent with an plus size child knows how I’m feeling right now. NO more feeling guilty, ashamed and alone. Thank You for making this fun, easy and doable. ALWAYS A PROUD PARENT..AS for me, I love my green smoothies..LOVE THEM, TY

    This is the 2nd challenge I have completed. Several months ago my life was spiraling out of control. I felt unhealthy and was extremely overweight. A friend told me about a challenge she was about to start and asked if I wanted to do it with her. She sent me the link to the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge and the rest as they say is history. After starting the challenge I immediately felt better. I use to have to have a cup of coffee in the morning but after a few days of drinking the smoothies I realized that I no longer needed it. Drinking the green smoothies daily gave me more energy, made me feel better over all and made me want to start eating better. I also started losing a little weight which was something I hadn’t been able to do in a long time. Another really wonderful benefit that came from me starting this challenge, was that I was able to share it with my family. My husband and son are now regularly drinking the green smoothies and are enjoying their healthy benefits as well. Starting this challenge was the BEST decision I could have made! I am so grateful to my friend Dee for caring enough to share this information with me and to your Rawkstar Team for making it so easy and for all your support!!!

    This is the first time I’ve participated in the Green Smoothie Challenge and I am LOVING it! I was a bit nervous at first, but the recipes are so delicous – I find myself Iooking forward to my morning smoothie every day! It’s a fantastic way to kick start healthier eating, making sure you’re on track to getting your daily fruits and veggies and even aids in weight-loss (I’m down 6 pounds since starting)! It’s inexpensive and easy prep each week to get the ingredients together. I just can’t say enough about these yummy concoctions! Thanks for making me a rawkstar! 🙂

    I have been having one green smoothie a day for the last few months! I have lost weight; I feel better and I have not been getting sick as much! I love them. I even have my five and two year old asking for lettuce smoothies!

    I am new to green smoothies – for a long time I was only making green juices! But I’ve realized how good it is to have all the nutrients PLUS the fiber that a juice cannot give you. I have been following the simple green smoothie recipes and so far have loved them all. However, I do not have a good blender so I’m going back and forth between a shake mixer and a food processor so a blender would be life changing!

    I looooovvvveeeee green smoothies. I love them so much that I even got my fiance hooked on them. I make them every morning for the two of us. We sip our breakfast on the way to work. The raw greens and fruits have changed my life for a positive way. They truly make me feel more energetic and healthier. I can tell the difference when I do not have one as I feel so lethargic. Some days I have to have two…breakfast and after my workout. It has actually helped me to build my tolerance against allergies. I was very much allergic to milk, but not much now. Its very rare that I cannot have milk and have a reaction. Also, it has helped me loose weight for our wedding (August 30, 2014). It keeps me healthy and skinny! Double goodness!!!
    I cannot stop telling people about them. Even my best friend’s 4 year old is hooked on them. But for him we call them the green lantern smoothie lol. People ask me all the time where I get my smoothies and how do they look so yummy..especially when i’m commuting on the train. I just point them to your website and tell them they can make their own! It’s simple and cheaper than a starbucks or a smoothie from a cafe. My family and I have started a green smoothie family trend and it keeps growing. We are becoming a strong green smoothie family…from my fiance to my mother to my friends’ kids. Thank you for opening my world to green smoothies! YUM!!!!

    Drinking green smoothies everyday has helped me to be conscious of what I eat and put in my body… I have been making healthier food choices and have started working out again… I have more energy and essentially feel better. I am so excited to see where this green smoothie journey will take me 🙂

    Green smoothies have helped me so much in the past couple years! I’m a waitress so throughout the day I really only eat one meal, either breakfast or a really really late dinner, and lots of quick snacking throughout the day at my job, which isn’t the best food for me either. Without eating a lot throughout the day and being around lots of people and cleaning dirty dishes and such I would get sick so often. By drinking and prepping green smoothies I am able to get all the nutrients I need and feel full and not guilty about when I get to eat. I prep them and blend them really quickly and bring one to work and keep it in the fridge and I feel fully energized! I also haven’t been sick in a year! My skin and hair feel and look great! And I’ve even been able to get my boyfriend on board and he’s lost some weight. I have been looking towards getting a vitamix but unfortunately it’s not in my budget, winning this would be so amazing! Green smoothies help me feel really good and I’m happy that I get to put good things in my body and not just french fries!

    Before starting the 30 day challenge I was reaching for anything I could find for breakfast. Muffins, crackers..anything within reach. There was also a lot of cuban bread going on >.<
    I had been feeling really tired lately and decided to try the challenge.
    I have them for breakfast everyday and they keep me full and give me energy to last through my work day.
    It has also given me the motivation to start other challenges like working out because I saw how it was that just by changing 1 thing in your life, it can make you feel so much better.

    I used to think all this juicing and smoothie stuff was only for the super rich who could afford to shop every other day for all this expensive produce. I was always so disheartened that as the first well educated and college attending member of my family and a veterinary science/health student I couldn’t share this health craze that touted so many benefits especially for my family and I who live well under the poverty line and have no medical insurance to get out health checked and addressed regularly. For us it’s important to eat well and stay healthy but as many of you know eating right isn’t always the most affordable thing to do, but after saving up for a month and trying it for myself I just absolutely had to share this with my family. My lethargy was gone, I no longer got sick every time I ate, I didn’t feel the burning of acid in my stomach! My two brothers and father have been diagnosed with gastritis, ulcers, polyps in the intestines you name it but we never had the resources to see a nutritionist to provide a correct diet to help correct all of our issues (I suffer with gastritis and an over all sensitive stomach) so I buckled down and started clipping coupons and shopping sales! After some careful prep I brought out my mom and we bought lots of fruits and veggies on sale both fresh and frozen and stored them in the freezer so that we had affordable smoothie supplies on hand without having to break the bank and shop fresh veggies all the time. While we do purchase and use fresh here and there in order to keep from breaking the bank frozen is our staple but we love it all the same! We have been loosely adhering to the challenge this time around and I see my brothers reaching for the tums bottle less and less, my father losing all the inflammation in his midsection and an overall willingness to put a little extra effort into sneaking healthful things into our lives affordably the way we are doing with the smoothies. Obviously you can’t substitute medical care for these ailments with smoothies but until we save up the money to get everyone into the doctors this has really changed the way we all eat and feel in our house and it is such a blessing.

    I started using Simple Green Smoothies recently to help provide nutrition for family. I just started the challenge this month and have noticed a difference in my energy levels even after just having a baby four weeks before the challenge started. It has changed my daughters life the most because before the challenge my daughter wouldn’t eat vegetables but now she is drinking hers in green smoothies in the morning as well as being open minded to try green foods now:) baby steps!!

    I have found a way to overcome my aversion to many vegetables. Because of the smoothies my health has improved tremendously. I have seen a reduction in cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and glucose scores. I do not start my day without a green smoothie. It’s my vitamin in a glass.

    My husband and I lead very busy lives. We are trying to get healthier and lose some weight. When we discovered green smoothies it truly changed our lives. By simply drinking one a day, we became much more involved in our health in other areas. We started exercising more. We started reading labels on good packages more. We craved veggies more. And we definitely had much more energy. I recommend green smoothies to everyone now. And I intend to keep rawking as long as I can!
