Day 3 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Skin Booster Smoothie

Hmmm… Day 3. Not as bad as the Pineapple Clense, but not nearly as good as the Banana Berry Clense from Day 2. I was feeling confident about todays ingredients, but then I saw that receipe said not to make with milk.  Oh well,  I prefer creamier smoothies,  so milk it is!  Luckily it wasn’t bad ;).   I was really worried that I would waste all the ingredients because I couldnt suck it down.  But the banana flavor was quite overpowering so it worked out good.   27 days to go…

Skin Booster Smoothie

Vitamin E – Skin Booster Smoothie 

¼ Small Field Cucumber (about ½ cup sliced)
1 Frozen Banana (or fresh)
½ Cup Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
1 inch piece of Ginger (to taste)
1 tbsp. Chia Seeds (optional)
1 Cup of Spinach (or alternative greens)
1-2 Cups of Coconut Water or Water (not milk)

Instructions: Wash all your produce. Chop and put into blender with a small amount of liquid to start. Add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

I made my shake using about 8oz of Almond Coconut Milk and no Chia Seeds or ginger.   I prefer the frozen berries and banana … makes it cold and creamy like a smoothie should be!   I really need to get some Coconut Water … sounds yummy!

Day 2 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Berry Banana Clense

 As I am sure you may have guessed, I wasnt too thrilled with yesterdays Pineapple Clense. However, after reviewing todays ingredients, I had high hopes for the Berry Banana Clense Smoothie! Thank goodness it did not disappoint! I’m not sure I could choke down drink, 29 more days of the frothy, chunky smoothies, like yesterdays…

Banana Blueberry Clense Smoothie Berry Banana Cleanse
1 rib of Celery
1 Frozen Banana
1/4 Cup frozen Berries (I used blueberries)
1 cup of Kale (any type)
1-2 cups of Coconut water, water or almond milk (or coconut milk)
1 tbsp. Chia Seeds *Optional (did not use)Instructions: Wash all your produce. Chop and put into blender with a small amount of liquid to start. Add more as needed until you reach your desired consistency.

I made my shake this morning using about 10 oz of Almond Breeze which is a Coconut/Almond Milk mix. I love that it gives is a light sweet coconut flavor. If you don’t like coconut, then stick with regular Alomond Milk. I prefer using a milk based product which makes my Green Smoothies (or any protein shake I make) creamier — which is yummier in my opinion!
