Happy Monday y’all! I hope you are all having a good one.
You have probably noticed that I have been playing around with the blog a little today. I thought that it needed a little bit of a spruce up and since I have been doing a spot of Spring cleaning in my house of late I thought it would be nice to extend it to the blog too. So far I have changed the theme and produced a new header. There is still a lot of improvements that I want to do, but I quite like Celery and Cupcakes new look.
So all last week I was taking part of the Green Smoothie Challenge, which meant the consumption of seven smoothies over seven days. I got involved with this last time and loved it. Although eating all of those smoothies is never such a challenge for me as I love them so much.
Like last time I have put together a round up post of all of my smoothies and recipes to share with you all.
Cherry and Almond Bomb: Frozen cherries, a banana, almond extract, almond butter, chocolate hemp protein powder, camu camu berry powder, rice milk and water.
Pear and Berries: A banana, pear, chocolate hemp protein powder, frozen berries, spinach, milk thistle, camu camu berry powder, rice milk and water.
Berries and Chocolate: Mixed frozen berries, a banana, a nectarine (it needed using), coconut milk, chocolate hemp protein powder, water, spinach topped with buckwheaties and sultanas.
Fudgetastic Green Smoothie: An apple, banana, spinach, double fudge crunch powder, rice milk and water topped with a vegan cookie.
Butternut Squash Smoothie: Butternut squash, with a banana, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger and rice milk topped with rice puffs.
Raspberry and Coconut: Frozen raspberries, a banana, shredded coconut, curly lettuce, coconut milk, water, strawberry hemp protein powder topped with sultanas and spelt berry puffs.
Cookies and Berries: spinach, coconut milk, mixed frozen berries, a banana, ice, water, strawberry hemp protein powder topped with a Cookie Exchange cookie and sunflower seeds.
This time around I decided to mix things up with smoothies that included super foods, some that did not, sweeter protein powders and didn’t add any gums. I loved them all and have loved experimenting with frozen berries, such a versatile product.
To read about all about the health benefits of green smoothies, alkalinity and why I love them so much you can read it all in my previous recap post here.
How do you like your smoothies: green or just fruity?
