30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge Week 1 Update (1- 7th October)

Hey Maicurlies,

Smoothie

                                         Smoothie

It has been 1 week of my 30 day Green Smoothie Challenge and it has gone by really well.

As I mentioned in my previous post (here) I received the first weeks recipes and now also have the recipes for week 2 & 3.

The ladies that run the challenge mentioned that we can deviate a little from the recipes provided and they also have a bunch of additional ones on their own website.

So I of course did make a few little changes to their recipes depending on my taste preferences and also on what I can easily get my hands on without it costing an arm and a leg.

Here are the recipes I made:

Smoothies week 1

Smoothies week 1

How do I feel? I don’t want to lie and say “I feel like a new person” or really different but one thing I have noticed is that my skin looks and feels good. I think it is clearer…I guess healthier is good word for it. I do feel good about the fact that I am drinking something healthy everyday and that makes me happy!

I also have to say that I am loving every minute of making my smoothies! I like going crazy with the combinations. For some of them I feel like I could do with a little additional sugar, something like honey but thus far I haven’t added any.

Regardless, I am looking forward to the weeks to come.

If you are doing this challenge or any other smoothie challenge please let me know how it is going. Do you have a favorite smoothie?

Thanks

      My pleasure Kangopie 🙂 Aren’t they amazing! I always thought that “Green” smoothies wouldn’t be for me but since it isn’t ONLY greens I am loving them. I also add and remove certain ingredients but that’s what makes it fun right? 😀 Yay to finding Almond Milk..although… I am not a fan of the stuff lol. Coconut milk, now that is my thing. I have been experimenting with coconut Greek yogurt this week, will share my thoughts & recipes at the end of the week. Thanks for commenting hun! x
