Day 28 : Green Smoothie Challenge

Green Detox Support Smoothie

WOW,  I can’t believe the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge is almost over — only a couple more days!  I have really learned to like my morning smoothies with more than just berries or PB2!  I did modify today’s green smoothie a bit as I had no parsley or sprouts, but I did add some spinach, celery and banana.  As with my previous smoothies, I used Coconut Almond milk and no ginger or seeds.  As you can see the smoothie was very thick and creamy … which is just the way I like them!

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!

Hit the gym for another day this morning … and boy are my legs and abs T-I-R-E-D!!  Sure hope this Energy Booster Smoothie does the trick! As with my previous green smoothies, I used Coconut Almond Milk and did not add the ginger or Chia seeds. It was definitely one of the better smoothies I have had so far!

Cilantro Pear Detox  Smoothie

It’s a new work week for us and we even made it back to the gym this morning … feels so good to work out!  This smoothie was  perfect for our post work meal —  I think this one was my favorite of the bunch so far!  Strange since it has no berries in it …  Try it and let me know what you think!

The original recipe called for just water or coconut water, but as with my previous smoothies, I used Coconut Almond Milk and it blended up AWESOME!  I added 1 cup of spinach for my greens and as with the other green smoothies I didn’t add any optional seeds.
