Limited Time Blender Special Offer
Thinking of treating yourself to a new blender? I recommend you get a high speed blender for making Green Thickies as it will turn out incredibly smooth and free from green chunks! It is also so much faster than using a standard blender.
The blender I recommend and love is a Blendtec as you can just press the button and it performs the magic. You don’t have to do anything! (plus you can make your own healthy nut butters and frozen fruit ice cream which kids and adults adore).
The only thing about high speed blenders is they are expensive. I truly believe they are worth the investment and the best thing I ever bought as I use it so often.
But if you don’t want to splash out on a brand new high speed blender right now, a good alternative is to get yourself a refurbished blender because they are like new – but a lot more affordable.
Blendtec’s latest discount on refurbished blenders is now live! This month, the following deal is available:
30% off the price of refurbished blenders. These blenders are certified refurbished which means they have passed full inspection and meet the stringent standards that Blendtec hold for their machines. With a full 7-year warranty, these discounted reconditioned blenders will perform and delight for many years to come!

Green Thickies new 7 Day Detox will help you drop a dress size, improve your skin, your energy will soar and you are going to be so in control and proud of yourself.
You won't go hungry on this diet ... And better yet - it actually requires minimal time in the kitchen.
Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
