    I never thought that a green smoothie could taste so amazingly good.
    I like many other’s turned my nose up to greens in my smoothies. I said “Let me Think” NOT, putting greens in my smoothies.
    Well the green smoothie has changed my mind they are delicious and if you didn’t see the color you would not even think there were greens in them.
    Not only are they delicious they couldn’t be more beneficial to your health. I am so glad I found this website. It has changed my way of eating and staying healthy.

    I’ve been drinking green smoothies once a day for the last week, and I feel great! I’ve lost 2 pounds, and I have more energy than I’ve had for a long time. This giveaway is at the perfect time, too: my poor little Oster blender just bit the dust today! Thank you so much for helping to get me to eat healthier!

    As an avid gardener and homesteader my summer bounty can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are heaps of cilantro growing year round, parsley thats gone to seed and come back multiple times, kale of 4 different varieties, cucumbers that seem to triple in size overnight, and now this year lots of fruits as well. I love to cook and have done the 21-day cleanse twice now and have been making green smoothies following simplegreensmoothies.com for as long as you all have been around but, I am now finding that my lifestyle and our constant green smoothies making has influenced the people around me too. Two of my co-workers now come to work daily with green smoothies and have been advocates in their inner circles too. However, the biggest difference this is making in my life is that my 2 1/2 year old son is now always asking for smoothies. I blend enough for him and my husband and myself and make sure I have enough left over to pour into his popsicle molds too. Cilantro Peach Passion has been drilled into my poor families brain at this point, mostly because during the summer almost all of the ingredients can be plucked and tossed directly into our blender. Simple green smoothies have helped to organize my garden harvests and have motivated my whole family and some friends to jump on board too. Thank you!!

    Green smoothies are definitely a big part of me since going vegan! I have a good three or four jars a day and I love them! They have helped with my digestion and make me feel super energetic. I love making smoothies for myself and for my friends!

    Green smoothies have been awesome! They have helped me see fruits and veggies in a whole new way. A year and a half ago I got married and I introduced my husband to the smoothies he was iffy at first but he has come to love them now. In addition to this my mom and sisters are now drinking them too. So I guess green smoothies haven’t just helped me but my family. It’s not just a habit it’s like a routine that we have and that’s really a great outcome. FOR a family who rarely ate fruits and veggies. So thanks green smoothies for this new lifestyle!

    Now that I’m pregnant I want to eat more fruits and vegetables. Without having to sit and eat bowls of raw vegetables. Drinking this helps me feel better gives me energy I need to make it through the day. I love green smoothies

    simple green smoothies have become an addiction for me. I’ve been waking up early to blend a fresh drink for breakfast and lunch. I’ve become a regular at my local fruit stand. I use to eat fast food everyday for lunch because it was convient, now I’m preparing health snacks and 2 smoothies to last me until I get home from work. this new routine has given me so much more energy and making me think twice about what’s for dinner. I feel better and more peppy than before. I’m so happy with this yummy smoothies I’ve gotten 4 friends and 3 family members doing them now, including my 3 year old nephew who hates veggies.

    Simple Green Smoothies are a Heaven sent for me. I have had some health challenges for quite a few years. The doctors diagnosed me with a plethora of ailments. Two main issues. 1) PSOS, it would put weight on my body due to a hormonal imbalance no matter what I did. 2) Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) is the other for which there is no cure. It is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic pain due to boils/abscesses. I was a consistently in and out of the ER, my PC’s office, and or admitted into the hospital for surgery to get some sort of relief from this illness. I have lived more than half of my live hurting and or bed ridden at some point. Once I discovered Green Smoothies…AHHHH my prayers had been answered. Now, I rarely have an outbreak from the HS so the chronic pain has cut down to over half of what I was used to dealing with. In addition, my hormones seemed to have come into balance in spite of having PSOS, which caused terrible hot flashes, weight gain and so many other things. I have also lost some pounds and I am proud to say my body is regular like clockwork. I can always tell when I have not has my smoothie. My Doctors have only been able to help treat my symptoms. They now tell me to keep up whatever I am doing because it was working for me. Thank you both so much!

    Green smoothies have changed my whole family! Before green smoothies, I often skipped breakfast, which made me crash in the afternoon, leading to me grab anything sugary or caffeinated to revive myself. Now that I start my mornings with green smoothies, I have the energy through the day and the stamina to keep a level head when it comes to snacks & meals! As a mom of 3, I also give them to my kids — and they love them! What a great way to get their fruits & veggies in each day! I even got my husband making them for himself each morning before work…and he was skeptical! Now he says that his day doesn’t start right if he doesn’t make his smoothie!

    I started drinking green smoothies last year during the June 2013 challenge I think? But anyways, it’s one of the best things I’ve done since becoming vegetarian 6 years ago. 🙂 it’s the easiest way to get more fruits and veggies into my diet(lifestyle) especially greens!! I’ve been looking into getting a refurbished blendtec but I just recently moved back to San Diego from Kansas City and I’m just waiting to hear back from a job. 🙂 so for now it’s gotta wait! It would be awesome to win this blender, but even if I don’t, I’m definitely gonna invest in one. I love my nutribullet but it’s time to upgrade!! Even while I’ve been on a budget, I keep my smoothie recipe simple and delicious! They make my day so much better and I’m more aware of what I’m putting into my body! I LOVE my green smoothies!! And I always share the love of them to my friends and fam. 🙂 thanks so much for your inspirations and motivation! 🙂 keep rawkin’!

    Green smoothies have definitely helped me get my daily veggie intake as well as given me the energy I need to keep up with my busy life! My daughter even enjoys drinking these smoothies and I love that she’s getting the extra vitamins and nutrients her little body needs to grow and be healthy.

    I started drinking green smoothies approximately three years ago and they have given me so much energy. They also provide lots of minerals, vitamins and chlorophyll.

    As a college student, it can be difficult to eat healthy; especially when I was working part time and being enrolled in 18 credits. Green smoothies were quick and easy enough to make in the mornings and gave me piece of mind. I knew that at least once a day I was consuming something good for me. I’ve even, since, converted my boyfriend and your recipes have been a great help.

    Green smoothies RAWK!

    Thank you!

    Green smoothies are great but without a good blender they can be a bit chunky 🙁

    Ever since I’ve found simple green smoothies and joined the challenges I have had huge great results. I enjoyed the smoothies which made it easier to make it through the challenge . This is my third challenge and when I joined the my 1st challenge my liver was enlarged and fatty and with cirrhosis . After the second 30 day challenge ; I had a test done and it showed no enlarged or fatty liver yeah! The cirrhosis is still in my liver and I’m planning to continue with smoothies to regenerate my liver into a beautiful healthy liver the way it’s should be. Usually at the end of the 30 day challenges I see a weight loss of 5lbs. I luv smoothies and thanks to everyone at simple green smoothies for making this possible and getting me healthier. Cheers to all the green smoothie mustaches on a straw.

    Green smoothies have changed my life tremendously! I’ve been on a health kick since I saw this movie Hungry for Change (per my boyfriend’s request) and have been the oddball in my family ever since. With putting actual raw foods and veggies in the house (gasp!) and juicing/blending morning and night, I’ve been eager to share with my mom. For a while, I fell off just because things in my life became a bit hectic.

    My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer just last week and it’s genetic because her mother had it and her mother’s mother. That was one of my main reasons for wanting to juice in the first place, to fight off cancer before it affected me. Well, it is affecting me through my mother. I want to create delicious smoothies for her (she goes ick over the green stuff, lol). She says she can’t get past the color but I tell her that’s the good stuff all the time! Now, with doctor’s orders, she’s having to change her “southern girl” ways. Stay away from the vegetable oil, red meat, butter, she’s not happy and her pout shows that. But I do know that she’s coming around to certain things I’ve been telling her.

    She’s been taking more Vitamin C and she’s open to juicing. So I really want to wow her with what I can do and it would help if I had a better blender/juicer/smoothie maker. I have the NutriBullet, I don’t know if you heard but it was recently on the news. Folks were saying that when adding ice to their concoctions, they were finding shards of metal in their drinks because the ice would chip away at the blades. I would rather not have my mom drinking metal shards but I don’t know if too many people will be willing to buy my Nutribullet so I could buy a better smoothie.

    I would love to win this blender – it would help me out tons!

    Thank you!
