Day 24 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Apple Cinnamon Green Smoothie

Not bad … Definitely one of the better green smoothies!  I only used 1/2 of an apple which worked great with avoiding the “baby food” texture.  As with my other smoothies I stuck with Coconut Almond Milk and just used a dash of cinnamon.   Both my apple and banana were frozen so it was quite thick and I eneded up losing part of it on the sink when I went to pour into my glass :(.

Day 21 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Cinnamon Blueberry Pie Smoothie

Today’s shake was definitely yummy!  Not the best of the bunch, but definitely up there in the top 5 out of 21 so far.  Based on my previous experience with the apple smoothies, I chose to use only 1/2 of an apple — and it really helped!  It really avoided the applesauce texture of the Day 6 and Day 7 Green Smoothie Challenge.  I did skip the avocado as I am not a fan of them and again used spinach for my greens.  Also, cinnamon can be very strong, so I just used a “dash” and it was plenty.  I think a teaspoon would be way too much!  I also added a scoop of my  Essante Organics 7.365ph Vanilla Shake mix as suggested to make it extra yummy!
