Bonus Post: Green Smoothie Challenge Wrap-Up!
I completed the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge yesterday! Saturday's was probably the best one, though next time I will try to thicken it a little bit.... Below is the recipe.
Orange Kiwi Green Smoothie
1 large handful of kale
1 tbsp flax seed
1/2 cup oats
1 cup (or so) red seedless grapes
1/2 cup almond milk
I also tried one with coconut and musk melon along the way. The taste was good, but coconut doesn't puree very well! (At least, it didn't for me.) A pina colada one was great, too, but I didn't get that one thick enough either. This challenge has given me a lot of smoothie-making experience! I loved taking part - I did feel more energetic, and I think I ate a lot more healthy and a lot "less" in general while doing it. I plan to continue (I don't know if I will do it every day, but I will do it often!).
