At the beginning of the year my roommate saw that Simple Green Smoothies was doing a 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge so we decided to give it a try. What we loved about this site was that it not only provided a different set of green smoothie recipes each week, but they also provided a shopping list for each week's smoothies! We started with week 2 and though it would be fun to do a review of some of the recipes and share our favorites.
Day 1. Banana C Monster-
had too many flavors going on.

All of the recipes make enough for two smoothies, but can easily be halved. I loved that all of these smoothies are non-dairy and incorporate the flavors of different non-dairy milk options. The grocery lists call for oranges for some smoothies, but we realized that buying orange juice was easier and faster. A great tip from Simple Green Smoothies is to blend the greens and liquid first, before adding the other ingredients. This really helps to avoid big chunks of greens in your smoothie!
I hope this inspires you to try some new green smoothie recipes! I would also love to hear about some of your favorite smoothies :)
