Boy... I love reading smoothie testimonials! My passion is for you to know how to add more nutrient dense foods into your life. Please, let me know how this site or smoothies have helped you!
I love smoothies. My friend turned me on to green smoothies. I was at her house and was shocked to see her kids drinking up these smoothies and asking for seconds. She filled her blender with kale, spinach, and frozen berries. Thats it. Once I tried it I was hooked. I went to the store that day and bought a nice blender and started making my own green smoothies. I have noticed that my skin is clearer and I ave so much energy. I wake up in the morning craving these things. The best part is I lost a little weight. I have not been dieting. I think the energy I get from these smoothies just helps me to be more active. I can't imagine a day without my green smoothies.
I make a smoothie almost every day. I find it to be a very efficient way to get several servings of fruit as well as other nutrients. Most often I use banana, strawberries, cherries, soy milk and ice. Once its mostly blended I add fiber powder of ground flax seed to add an extra punch of health benefits. Smoothies are a great vehicle for fiber and protein powders that can otherwise be kind of nasty to drink. I like to experiment with different fruits and liquids to keep it fun and somewhat seasonal and I never add sugar. I have more energy and, for the first time in my life, I am finally getting the proper amount of fruit in my diet. This gives me confidence that I am doing what I can to maintain a healthy lifestyle. And since I drink my smoothie between breakfast and lunch, I eat a much smaller meal at lunch that I otherwise would. And best of all, it's a sweet treat and a great way to finish up a workout!

I love healthy smoothies!! My favorite one includes spinach, organic apple juice, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, and ice. The taste of the smoothie is very, very delicious. The texture is creamy and there are the fruit chunks in it. Even if you are someone who doesn’t like vegetables, you can not taste the spinach in this smoothie. The spinach is there to give you a serving of vegetables for the day. After drinking this smoothie you will feel energized for all of your daily activities. After trying this recipe you will want to share it with friends and family. It’s like giving yourself the one extra boost you need to make your day great!

Smoothie Handbook's Testimonials
This is a great informational site which I am sure to recommend to others. I particularly liked the ideas for nutritional smoothies that I had never thought of before (such as the green smoothie), let alone tried. Being lactose intolerant the Chocolate No-Milk Shake is perfect for me. Additionally, the nutritional fact were quite interesting and a helpful resource.

This site has fantastic recipes, complete with nutrition information and gorgeous graphics. Since I had weight loss surgery, I practically live on smoothies, because most other things make me sick. But if I get over 2 grams of simple sugar or more than 27 grams of fat, I get sick, so I have to be extremely cautious what I put into smoothies. This site gave me some why-didn't-I-think-of-that ideas.
Hi DaNae - I was very impressed by your site! I work in an office where my boss lives upstairs & she is always making smoothies in the kitchen. I never really paid any attention, and have never been a smoothie drinker. However, after reading about the health benefits on your site (I can totally relate to lung cancer - it has hit hard in my family, too), I plan to start making smoothies for myself, especially for breakfast. I like the idea of using over-ripe bananas - I buy bananas every week & usually throw out 2 or 3 because they are too soft. I have a blender, and what could be easier than throwing in some fruit, especially now that they're in season. I plan to use the recipes you offer and have added your site to my "Favorites". (I'm not sure about the spinach, though - I'll have to work my way up to that!).
I am very impressed with your website. I think it's attractive and will draw readers into it. It's well laid out and organized, and has interesting information that many will find helpful! I was very impressed with the "green smoothie" pages! I had never thought about adding veggies to a smoothie to sneak in more nutrition, but now I will try it! Now I want a smoothie! Your photos look so yummy--what a tease! The breakfast smoothies sound perfect for someone on the go, and for a "natural" sweet start to the day! I'd feel like I was cheating to drink one! But I wouldn't turn one down, I'm sure! I was going to pick my favorite recipe from there-but they all sound so delicious that I can't decide! Great job, and I wish you lots of luck on your business!
