30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge Week 4 Update Final Week

Hey Maicurlies,

week 4

                               Smoothies Week 4

And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain. My friends, I’ll say it clear; I’ll state my case of which I’m certain…I LOVE SMOOTHIIIIESS! OK sorry, got carried away but it is true! 🙂

I finished the Green Smoothie Challenge and must say I couldn’t be happier that I participated. P.S. For those of you who might might have skipped my previous updates please check the links below:

The final week ended with a bang! I incorporated a few new fruits and got my hands on new greens (I was hunting for Kale, I will eventually get my hands on it but found something else to keep me going). In my last post I mentioned that I kept forgetting to add flaxseed so I made a point of always adding them this time. I even ended up with a “green” smoothie that wasn’t green (it was purple see below)! It was delicious and did include 2 cups of spinach so it counts, at least in my book recipe below on day 7.

I loved this challenge so much that I plan on continuing with them. My aim is to keep having a smoothie a day but might have to do one every other day, we shall see. If you haven’t tried making smoothies and are worried that it is too time consuming or expensive I have provided a few tips that might help.

  • Buy a mix of fresh and store bough frozen fruits (especially those that are off season) – this way you have access to different types of fruits all year round.
  • Slice fruits and freeze them –  place slices on a tray covered with aluminum in the freezer and then store the frozen fruits in resealable sandwich bags. It becomes so much easier to make the smoothies and measure out quantities.
  • Prepare bags of the fruits you plan to use – you can prepackage the bags with an assortment of fresh (frozen) fruits so that all you need to do is add liquids and any fresh ingredients you need when you are ready to make and drink the smoothie.

I can only say I saw positive results: happy skin, feeling good about myself and perhaps even a little more energy in the morning (this only happened a few weeks into the challenge for me.) So like I said this is to be continued 🙂

Would love to hear if you drink smoothies on a regular basis and if so what kind?

Thanks

        Yeah, there are a lot of giveaways online I wish I could try my luck at but most of them are not for international viewers. If you get your own courier service and do a give away let me know LOL. Looking forward to what’s in store for us 😀

        I have only tried a few times and never win either. One time I thought I had won because I got an email saying I WON a heutiful steamer but found out the vlogger’s account got hacked. I noticed the email address was off but only after doing a 5 minute “I won something dance in my flat” lol. Was very disappointing but oh well.
