Day 30 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Purify Me Green Smoothie

The 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge has come to an end and I’m kinda bummed :(.  Not quite sure what I am going to do tomorrow…

Today’s smoothie was filled with a bunch of things I did not have on hand, so I had to modify quite a bit.  But in the end, it really tasted great!  I used frozen bananas, kale, 1/2 an orange, some Essante  Organics Earth Greens (in place of Spirulina) and Essante Organics 7.365pH Chocolate Protein to pump up the protein content.  The orange gave a bit of a “tang” to the chocolate covered banana flavor.  Strange combination, but definitely something I will make again!

Day 29 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Bok Choy Thai Green Smoothie

Only 1 day left for the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge !  I wasn’t too impressed with today’s smoothie.  It wasnt bad, but nothing “special”  I did have to make some modifications so perhaps that was the difference.  I used “spring mix” in place of broccoli sprouts and only used 1/2 of an apple to avoid the babyfood texture.   And it probably goes without saying, but I also omitted the seeds and ginger, and used Coconut Almond Milk in place of water.  I did use some dried unsweetened coconut, but it really didnt lend any flavor in my opinion to the green smoothie.  It was nice and thick but that I think comes from the frozen banana and milk.

Day 27 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Pear Bok Choy Detox Green Smoothie

A Green Smoothie — that isn’t Green!   I really enjoyed today’s smoothie, even mixed with Coconut Almond Milk.  It was different from the rest, but the milk and frozen fruits I think really made this smoothie thick and creamy — I actually had to add extra milk to thin it down some!   The skin from the pear was a bit gritty, but that likely has to do with my Ninja and not the recipe itself …  Give it a try and let me know what you think!
