I received an email last week from Katherine over at Real Food Runner inviting me to join her in hosting a 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. My immediate response was yes because I love green smoothies and I love connecting with and supporting other bloggers.
This is the perfect time to do a 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge because the warmer spring weather makes me crave cold breakfasts and snacks like smoothies and Greek yogurt rather than things like oatmeal and hot tea. I’m also excited because my new protein powder arrived today so I’m going to incorporate it into my smoothies and see if I notice a difference over the seven days.
A green smoothie the size of my head, don’t mind if I do! 😉
So here are the details…all you have to do is add one green smoothie to your daily eats for seven days. They make a great breakfast when you add protein powder or nut butter and are great afternoon snacks and post-workout recovery drinks. The challenge starts on Monday, March 26 so you have the weekend to stock up and get prepared. My “base recipe” for green smoothies can be found in this post and Katherine posted a great link to 15 green smoothie recipes that includes a video. I will also be trying to expand my smoothie recipe repertoire and sharing some new combinations with you over the course of the week.
The fun part is that we’d like for our readers to do the challenge with us. To sign up just leave a comment on my blog or Katherine’s (leave a link to your blog if you have one!) and we’ll post a list of the participants on Monday. We’ll do a final round up at the end with everyone who completed the challenge. Feel free to send us pictures and share recipes!
Who is with us!?
