Green Smoothie Challenge

Yesterday I started the 30 day Green Smoothie Challenge from Happy Foody’s Website.

I drank a few green smoothies last year and loved the effects: clearer skin and better nutrition, but want to see what will happen if I can keep it up for an entire month! See my Green Smoothie Challenge page on the menu bar for a full rundown of my challenge.

Yesterday, I made two smoothies. The first was a random collection of stuff that I had in the crisper as I decided to make one before visiting the grocery store for supplies 🙂

Recipe One: 1 apple, 1/2 english cucumber peeled, 1 handful parsley, 1/2 c orange juice, 1/4 c blueberries–all that I had at the moment.  I blended this is 1/2 c crushed ice and 1/2 c cold water.

Results: Taste was not my favorite–but I had inadvertently put together a recipe for detox. Morgan was almost late for school …nuff said.

Recipe 2:  1/2 c pineapple (fresh), 1 banana, 1c frozen mixed berries, 2 c baby spinach, cold water and ice (about 1/2 c each.) 

Results: taste was WAAAY better, end result on my system was the same.  I am definitely convinced that my  digestive system has sped up. Good news, woke up on day 2 with 1 lb gone and feeling good.

    Hey your FB post on the topic inspired me to check it out and I had my first green smoothie today! Please keep the recipes coming. My first one was kind of like yours, random stuff I had in the house. The color was worse than the taste 🙂

    I am going to try to get O to try one too, we’ll see how that goes! Your earlier post about M requesting Thomas – so cute – what a big, smart boy!
