Green Smoothie Testimonials, part 14

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | May 18, 2009

I’ve been drinking a quart of green smoothies daily for about a year now, with a few exceptions. When I fail to drink them for a few days (too busy, need to go to the store, etc.), I find that the first sip of the next smoothie is so welcome, so delicious, so satisfying.

My children drink them because I put them in front of them. I gave them a pint at first, then my 11 y.o. son struggled to get them down. I let him drink half a pint for a while, until he got used to them. Finally, he asked if he still had to drink the small glass (half a pint), or if he could have a full glass now–YES! He also enjoys drinking them in front of friends and telling what’s in it. That took a couple of weeks, probably.

Now, they drink a pint, and sometimes whatever else is left over after I have mine. They like lots of strawberries in theirs, and fresh peaches, when they’re in season. I have converted several friends to drinking green smoothies, too. (Them: “What is that you’re drinking?” Me: “A green smoothie.” Them: “What’s in it?” Me: “Want a taste?” or “Would you like the recipe?”)

I purchased my Blendtec Total Blender at Costco during a demo at the store. The demo guy recommended I go online to GreenSmoothieGirl.com for great recipes and support. Since I have been drinking the green smoothie, my bowels are more regular than they have ever been. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and now I do not have constipation. It is the most wonderful feeling to be regular! Also, since adding the dark leafy green vegetables, I have been able to avoid colds from grandkids and friends. I can honestly say I am much healthier. I never miss a day and it has been about 4 months. Thank You, Robyn.

    I love hearing how everyone is doing, and thanks for sharing what you learn , it helps us all ! I am wanting to know if anyone has info about how people with Crohns disease handle green smoothies. I have 2 families in my neighborhood that have mild to serious cases, one lady no longer eats any meat but she is soooooooooooo thin it breaks my heart to see her. I would think that all the live nutrients and unknown plant properties in a good GS would be soothing but what about the fiber level? Would love to be able to encourage these dear people with the GS good news. Any ideas or info source would be great, thanks ….Was there life before green smoothie? :))
