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 kiwi
1 orange
1 banana
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!).

  1. I have to admit, that sounds *very* strange. But then, I'm used to my dad's smoothies, in which he throws everything he can get his hands on - including cheerios and spaghetti... I think I'm scarred LOL. I'll have to try some "normal" smoothies on my own I guess!

  2. The green smoothie challenge sounded good. I like the sound of the one with the coconut, perhaps you could have used creamed coconut. I think I need an infusion of smoothies afterthis A-Z challenge to perk me up.
