At the beginning of each year, we invite you to join us for a Green Smoothie Challenge. How are you doing? What have you tried and liked?
We may do a wrap-up at the end of the month, but for now, here’s a look at our “green” smoothies from Week 1 and some of our quick thoughts about each one. Sorry about the foaminess of the smoothies. They were just poured straight from the blender. Also, the color may not be appealing, but there is no correlation between color and taste. You’ll be surprised by which ones you’ll like. We will have more tips and recommendations soon!
Link to Week 1’s recipes, shopping list, and more are down below. Each week has recipes for every weekday and we free style on the weekends. The images below are from our Instagram Story postings which is why they are vertical and tag Simple Green Smoothie. :p
We all agree that this one is back to the basics – a simple, citrusy green smoothie! Yum!
We substituted with orange juice which seemed to overpower the cranberry flavor. We made it a second time with more cranberries and less orange juice but then the cranberry flavor was overpowering. We’ll try again when we get oranges.
Following the recipe makes it super chocolatey. We like chocolate but wanted to taste the strawberries as well. It makes for a great chocolate shake-like drink. We’ll try less caco powder next time.
Berry Blast Off
If you love berries, you’ll love this one! Just a warning, there can be a lot of seeds depending on which berries you use. Be a good friend and let someone know if they have a seed between their teeth.
Coming up: Mango Orange Madness, Orange Julius, Peach Coconut Dream, Strawberry Blast, and Simple Peach – We’ll let you know how it goes!
Join us, follow us, tag us! Start anytime after you read this, wrap up after 30 smoothies or whenever, the prize is a healthier lifestyle. 🙂 Oh kale yeah!
