BENEFITS of Our Delicious Green Smoothie Challenge:
♥ Re-set your body by filling nutritional voids and creating new expectations. You will actually start to crave the magical healing fruits & veggies that might be finish in the beginning! ALL of the healing, anti-inflammatory micro-nutrients in whole foods is kept when you make Green Smoothies – unlike traditional juicing, which removes the fiber and a lot of the most nutritious parts of the food – rind, peel, seeds, etc. – to encourage maximum bioavailability for your body to absorb every last little bit of nutrition.
♥ HEALTHY weight loss and less bloat. Whatever your health goals are, by drinking daily green smoothies you will most likely experience weight loss. For those that replaced 1 meal per day with a green smoothie, 90% of participants lost between 5 and 15 pounds. Those that used green smoothies with the goal of adding more fruits & veggies lost up to 5 pounds.
♥ Make sure that you get several servings of both fruits AND vegetables, every single day, whether you “eat clean” or not. We know — it’s HARD to completely overhaul your diet. One green smoothie per day is ONE change we know you can commit to! It will make a HUGE difference in your energy levels and overall health. Did you know the average American gets 2 servings of fruits & veggies per day – and that’s counting fresh fries and ketchup! We’re here to make sure that you get 5 to 10 servings per day!
♥ Promote better digestion and elimination. Trust us on this one — you’ll definitely be feeling even better than regular after making green smoothies a daily routine. And don’t worry about spending too much time in the bathroom – unlike a restrictive Green Smoothie Diet, just ONE smoothie a day won’t inspire any hyper-activity in your lower GI.
♥ Strengthen your skin, hair, and nails. A vast majority of participants in our cleanses say that this is what they notice first: brighter and clearer skin. Over time, you’ll notice your nails and hair will be thicker and stronger, too! This is just one result of the hydrating and nourishing properties of Green Smoothies.
♥ Make you happy — for real. Everything about Green Smoothies should serve to make you smile. They taste great, satiate, and actually boost your mood by providing your body with easy to digest, raw, whole foods. We were pleased to find out that a large majority of our Green Smoothie Challenge participants reported a boost in mood AND energy levels within the first couple of days!
♥ Help you get the most out of your blender – no matter what blender you have. By using this machine EVERY DAY, you’re definitely getting the most out of your investment. And learning more about how your blender works will prepare you for more complicated blender recipes and eventually, not using a recipe at all (You’ll be a Blender Babe PRO!). Once you get familiarized with Green Smoothies, you’ll be able to make them with whatever you’ve got in the fridge.
Why Blender Babes’ Green Smoothie Challenge is Different
This Challenge is different for a few reasons, one of them being that it is FREE! We want you to spend your money on nice, organic produce (if you can), superfoods, exercise options, and treating yourself right; NOT on recipes. Most Green Smoothie Challenges and other Smoothie Recipe Books range from $15, for a book, to $60+ for a group cleanse! We want you to get the most bang for your buck – and that means that the recipes, Facebook group, and support are all FREE. It also means that we put conscious effort into organizing the smoothies by ingredients – and grouping them so you can easily add Green Smoothies to your diet without breaking the bank. Adding a Green Smoothie to your everyday diet should NOT drastically change your grocery bill. PLUS – you DO NOT NEED a high powered blender such as a Blendtec or Vitamix – we will teach you how to make green smoothies with a “regular” blender! :)
FLEXIBILE & EASY
There are a few ways that we’ve conspired to make this Challenge suit everyone’s individual needs. For one, you can choose between supplementing or replacing meals–see more about this below. Further, on Day 7 of each week (Rest Day), you’ll get to use up any leftover ingredients or smoothies that you have OR pick a favorite one from the week to make. We have 18 unique, different recipes for each of the Days 1-6 of the three weeks — you’ll never make the same smoothie twice unless you WANT to. This means if you try it and you HATE it, you’ll never have to make it again! We’ve tried to make this Challenge something that we really look forward to doing, especially since we host free group Green Smoothie Challenges a few times a year. :)
DELICIOUS & NOT RESTRICTIVE OR LOW CALORIE
You can use the Green Smoothie Challenge to achieve YOUR desired results. If you’re looking to lose a few pounds, just drink a Green Smoothie instead of eating breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If you’re seeking simply to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet, then ADD a Green Smoothie to your diet wherever you’d like. We really like to enjoy green smoothies mid-morning or mid-afternoon, or when we’re craving a snack. Green Smoothies are great at eliminating cravings and filling you up without that laggy feel you might get from eating a big meal. You’ll be making a lot of different green smoothies, and some are more high calorie than others. For meal replacement, we have thicker, more milkshake-like smoothies, and for diet supplementation, we have some lighter green smoothies and coconut-water based smoothies designed to hydrate and replenish your natural sugars. By the end of the challenge, you’ll have lots of different options for green smoothies that can fill your specific dietary needs.
10 More Reasons to Drink Green Smoothies & JOIN Our Challenge
- Green smoothies are extremely nutritious. 80% of Americans are deficient in one or more essential nutrients. Greens contain all the essential minerals, vitamins (except B12), and even amino acids that humans need for optimal health. The ratio of nutrients in green smoothies that is optimal for flavor and human consumption is about 60 percent ripe organic fruit mixed with about 40 percent organic greens.
- Green smoothies are extremely alkalizing and help to balance the body’s pH level. If our bodies become acidic, disease follows. Greens have been proven to help fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and attention deficit disorder (ADD) and obesity.
- Green smoothies are easy to digest. When blended well, most of the cells in the greens and fruits are ruptured, making the valuable nutrients easy for the body to assimilate. Green smoothies literally start to get absorbed in your mouth.
- Green smoothies, as opposed to extracted juices, are a complete food because they include fiber. Consuming fiber is important for optimal digestion.
- Regular consumption can assist in weight loss due to fiber’s natural regulating power over digestion and blood glucose levels.
- Fruit and greens have an anti-inflammatory effect, helping to reduce pain and inflammation in joints and on a cellular level.
- Green Smoothies are easy to make and clean up. You can easily prep, blend and clean up green smoothies in five to ten minutes.
- They are easy on-the-go solutions - you can carry green smoothies with you and sip on them when you’re hungry or have the time, as opposed to trying to cook and then eat hurriedly when running late.
- Green foods are packed full of oxygen and sunlight, which serve to oxygenate the blood and prevent disease. On a cellular level, chlorophyll is very similar to human blood – so much so that it has been said that consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion.
- Green smoothies are kid-friendly (BIG kids too!) and a WONDERFUL way to get everyone to consume more vegetables! :)

One of the best things you can do for your body is to incorporate more bioavailable fruits and vegetables. Raw foods rid the body of harmful toxins and cleanses and rejuvenates the body as well as strengthens the immune system. We developed this free Green Smoothie Challenge because we understand the desire and need to consume more nutritionally dense foods as well as the hesitancy and fear of deprivation and failure. We believe EVERYONE, kids and seniors and moms alike, can benefit from adding a Green Smoothie to their diet.
♥ You may be a busy mom who makes a big green smoothie in the morning to drink in between breakfast and lunch, and refrigerates the other half for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
♥ You may be a single guy who doesn’t like to cook and wants an easy option for mornings before working out or leaving the house, or to supplement your diet between lunch and dinner.
♥ You may be a senior who wants to get maximum nutrition without having to cook a whole meal or who finds it difficult to eat whole foods at certain times of day.
Whatever your situation, we are here to SUPPORT you. We host several FREE Green Smoothie Challenges throughout the year on our PRIVATE Blender Babes Green Smoothie Challenge and Juice Detox Facebook Group. Either way grab a friend or family member, buddy up and do this together so you have support. :) It will keep you honest and help you stick with you.You will ALL feel SO GOOD!
