Giveaway Time!

My Facebook Page now has 322 fans!! WooHoo!! I promised that once we reached 300 I'd do another giveaway! Here we go! I've had my eye on these little numbers for quite some time! I finally picked some up and have been using them for about a week now. I'm in love! My smoothie just doesn't
taste as good if it's not through a straw! Now I don't have to worry about plastics exposure or any enviornmental impact.

So....you know the drill. In order to be considered for this giveaway of four stainless steel drinking straws, leave a message on this post that includes your name, how you found my blog & your favorite smoothie recipe. If your email address isn't attached to your blogger profile, make sure you leave your email address as well so I have a way to get ahold of you if you win! Good Luck!


  1. Woohoo! I found your blog way back when it was spotlighted on No Time For Flashcards and I've been following it since. My favorite smoothie recipe is water, spinach, frozen strawberries, banana and an orange-Delish!


  2. I found your blog somehow through the Green Smoothie Queen.
    My daughter's favourite smoothie currently is water, chia, orange, coconut, banana and yogurt. It's like Orange Julius! I love it too. You can also add in mango to the mix.

  3. I found your blog by accident a couple of months ago, and have been hooked ever since. My fav. is spinach, ginger, mango, and water with a dash of rosewater. Yummy.

  4. I found your blog.... LOL! Really I don't even know where to begin with that question but you and me we go way back.

    My favorite smoothie orange juice,banana,hand full of spinach, cocoa powder and maple syrup.

    I have never seen stainless steel straws but have thought about the glass ones. I'm not sure glass straws and my kids go well together.

  5. I'm not sure how I found your blog, maybe Real Food Wednesdays or Fight Back Friday carnivals.

    My favorite green smoothie is milk kefir, avocado, kale or spinach and honeydew melon.


  6. I found your blog through my sister. My favorite smoothie right now is water, spinach, a banana, an orange, frozen blueberries, and a couple of frozen strawberries. Yummy! And I love drinking my smoothies with a straw. These straws would be so perfect.

  7. Found your blog via Green Smoothie Queen (when I started green smoothies w/her 3 day challenge). My FAVORITE recipe so far:

    1 or 2 bananas
    1 bunch red leaf lettuce
    3 or 4 dandelions and 3 or 4 dandelion greens
    1/2 or 1/3 bag frozen mango (depending on size of bag and number of bananas)

    Oh so YUM! This is the smoothie I make for others to introduce them to green smoothies.


  8. Hi, I'm Deanna...I have been following you since January though I don't remember how I found you...

    My favorite smoothie is peanut butter, banana, cocoa, spinach and a little honey added for sweetness (and some ice too)

    I have seen these straws before and always wanted some... thanks for the giveaway :)

  9. I'm Yvonne. Hello! I found your blog through the Green Smoothie Queen site.

    My favorite smoothie, right now anyway:

    1 honey dew or cantaloupe
    1 handful of frozen red grapes
    1 handful of spinach or lacitino kale
    2 bananas
    Chunk of fresh ginger


  10. Hi I'm Sheryl and I found your blog on my niece's facebook page. I've been having a green smoothie for breakfast for the last 2 1/2 years and LOVE it! My favorite is
    1 banana
    1/2 cup of pineapple
    1/2 cup strawberries (frozen is ok!)
    1-2 ribs of celery
    1 handful of spinach
    2 cups water
    2 Tablespoons chia seeds (soaked overnight in the water)
    a ice cube tray of frozen smoothie from yesterday. Love my vita-mix!

    I love my smoothies cold and thick, but don't like them watered down with ice, so each day when I blend my smoothie, I first pour an ice cube tray full and put it in the freezer, then drink the rest. It makes a lot, so I either share with my husband or son, or put some in the fridge for a mid-morning snack.

    Your stainless steel straws are a WONDERFUL idea! I would use them every day.

  11. I found you on Facebook. I'm not sure if a friend commented on one of your posts or if you ran an ad that caught my attention.

    My favorite smoothie:
    1 frozen banana
    3 frozen strawberries
    handful of frozen raspberries, blueberries, blackberries
    some fresh parsley, swiss chard, and spinach

    Mix in the Vita Mix till smooth then I add 1 serving of Shaklee's Vanilla Energizing Soy Protein.

    I would love to win your stainless steel straws! Never heard of them until I read your FB post today!

  12. Found your blog/facebook while searching for green smoothies. My kids and I love them. Our fav. right now is apple, carrot, ginger and orange. I have been wanting the stainless straws for a long time now. We have glass right now to use with our smoothies. They are great but with 4 kids they do get broken from time to time. Stainless would be wonderful for us!

  13. Hi! Giveaways are fun...
    I found your blog on another smoothie blog. I also enjoy a green smoothie everyday, and don't feel right if I miss it!
