Smoothie Smoothie Smoothie Rocking Everywhere!!!!!!
I have been meaning to make this post for a while now but January kind of got the best of me and I was bussier than I thought I would be. But here we are now and it is gonna be worth the wait. Before I get to the smoothie recipes, lets talk about last year’s smoothie challenge. If you are late to the game and didn;t participate, fear not. I am here for you. Nways, last year I had a smoothie a day challenge and I was thinking of doing it again this year. I got over 200 people to sign up last year and it was amazing. I am trying to gauge the interest and depending on how many people want to join in, I will get to work creating more recipes and getting the challenge together. If you would be interested in the smoothie challenge, leave a comment below. Tell all your friends.
Now on to the smoothies. the great thing about these recipes is that the base is the same, You need Yogurt, milk and fruit and Veggies. Everything else we add on is to create different flavors and textures. For this post, I have tried to create 3 distinct flavors each completely different from the other. The secret to enjoying smoothies everyday without getting bored is to create smoothies that taste different and also look different. All the smoothies I have made today fit that.
Here is what You need
-Fruit and Veggies
Mango and Mint Smoothie
Mango and Mint are a great combination. I even have a mango and mint veggie Dip that is delicious. For this Smoothie you will need..
-1 Large Mango
– Fresh Mint
– Flax Seeds
– 1/2 Banana
– 1/4 cup on oats
* you can skip the oats if you are watching your carbs
Beet and Strawberry Smoothie
The Beets are really delicious and they add a sweet and fresh taste to your smoothie. The color is so pretty that you almos dont want to eat it. I topped mine with some oats, Kiwi and Mango
The Apple & Chard Green Smoothie
The Green Smoothie is a classic. Doesn’t that green color make you feel healthy just looking at it. The great thing about a classic green smoothie is that you can add any veggies you have in the fridge. I kept it simple by using Apple and swiss chard. I couldn’t find any spinach but this is a great substitute. I also added some banana to make it creamy.
-1 Cup Yogurt
-1 Tbsp flaxseeds
-2 Cups Swiss Chard
-1/4 Cup oats
Blend everything and top it off with fruit. I topped mine with some chopped beets, Strawberries and Oats
I hope you try out these smoothies. And I would love some pictures if you make any or all. And If you are interested in joining a smoothie challenge, hit me up in the comments.
