Simple Green Smoothies Week 1 Recap

Karis introduced me to the wonderful world of the Simple Green Smoothies 30-day challenge. Here's my recap of Week 1 of trying all of the recipes!

I'm not new to green smoothies and neither is Craig. I have been making smoothies for breakfast quite a bit lately and this challenge sounded like the perfect way to diversify my smoothie recipe options.

Favorite so far: Citrus Breeze, shared with Craig on the 4th of July. Both of us really enjoyed this blend.

Least Favorite: Coco-Cherry Berry Cooler. It was just kind of blah.

How I feel: I think the smoothies are helping my digestion. I feel energized and refreshed after drinking one. I do feel a little hungry after an hour or so post-consumption.

Negative aspect: washing the blender every day, because the immersion blender isn't the best for blending these types of smoothies up. Trust me, I tried and it was a mess and took twice as long!

I'm excited to go shopping for the Week 2 recipes and try them out for breakfast next week! I've been having Week 1 smoothies for lunch lately, but that won't be an option with being back at work next week.

  1. I can relate to your negative aspect from my pre-dishwasher days, I think part of the reason I'm keeping up with drinking a green smoothie every day (since June 1) is because of my dishwasher. On a related note, I'm strong considering ditching my juicer which rarely gets used, partly because of the number of parts to clean afterward.
