Thank you so much for all the hard work you do…this is my fourth smoothie I’ve tried from you ladies and all four times I’ve come back for more!! Absolutely amazing what you two do! <3

Thank you for all you’ve put into it and for making everything so simple! Also, do any of the smoothie recipes on the website qualify for the 30 day challenge?

    Bought the book, tried this recipe. This is beyond delish. I used to make a variation of this with regular unsweetened dutch processed cocoa, vanilla syrup, and some other unhealthy stuff. But this recipe is more tasty, more healthy, and I’m amazed that I can’t taste the spinach. I’ve never used cacao powder before and never knew of its benefits. I dont feel any guilt in drinking this. Thanks for this great recipe!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Meaninc,

      Thank you so much for your support! We love hearing that you’re enjoying our new recipes and book! This is a favorite for kids + adults alike.

      Cheers 🙂

  6. Lisa says:

    Hi! Loving your recipes. Thank you! Just wondering if your book will be sold in australia? I realise it can be ordered but with the exchange rate and postage it cost quite a bit. And i also realise it is an ebook but u would really like a hard copy.

  7. Cheyenne says:

    So is there a recipe for the homemade coconut whipped cream?

  8. Judi says:

    is there a reason there isn’t any calorie information given with your smoothies recipes? Are they given in your new book?

    • Nicole says:

      Judi,
      Sms doesn’t include caloric or macronutrient info. If you wanted to look it up in myfitnesspal, that’s an option.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Judi,

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

  9. Kathy says:

    loveing the nutri bullet best ever

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Kathy,

      I blend with a NutriBullet and love it too! It’s a powerhouse mini-blender!!

      Cheers 🙂
