I can’t tell you how much fun this smoothie challenge has been! Whenever you send in your entries I get a smile on my face.
Seriously, can you handle the adorability?! Thanks ShannonMarie for the overload of cuteness.
All the other entries have also been SO inspiring – they’re often sent in with a drool-worthy description of how delicious it was. It just keeps me inspired to keep me drinking smoothies every day.
So much goodness…mmmmmm. I love ALL your entries!
Now I have an announcement! Every week of the July smoothie challenge Vega is generously giving away a Vega Energizing Smoothie Pouch to one of the participants and the winner for this week is Jenn from Run It My Way! Congrats girl! (If you want to be part of the weekly draw you just need to comment on the initial challenge post)
I also wanted to give a shoutout to Katherine from Green Thickies. She’s doing the smoothie challenge too and she has a fantastic site with LOADS of smoothie recipes! Her story is so awesome…she actually used smoothies as a tool to help her overcome chronic fatigue syndrome AND lose about 56 pounds! Talk about inspiring.
Over the last few days I’ve been trying some smoothie recipes I’ve been meaning to try. A few days ago I made Spirulina Hawaiian Dream Smoothie from Sketch-Free Eating. You need to check this one out – I really enjoyed it. I didn’t have any fresh pineapple so I used canned and used my Vega Energizing Smoothie (original) for protein. I just love the colour of smoothies when I use spirulina!
I love putting my Vega protein in my shakes!
On Saturday I made BerryHappyBodies healthy Reese’s Shake. I believe that peanut butter and chocolate are a marriage made in heaven so naturally I thought this shake was kind of amazing. I added some raw maca and used my NytroWhey chocolate whey protein to the mix for some extra superhero-ness.
I also wanted to mention that I just found out my friend Whitney from WhitLikesFit is having a challenge for July too. It’s all about drinking more water and all you have to do is tweet her a picture of your water with the hashtag #hydrateinjuly. I decided to join in on the fun too – always need more motivation to keep drinking good ole’ H20.
Oh, and I just started a Tumblr blog a few days ago – this site will have stuff this site won’t, such as articles and recipes I enjoyed and health/fitness photos from my life. If you’re on Tumblr I’d LOVE to follow you back!!
Hope you’re having a marvelous Monday! Don’t forget to drink a smoothie (and lots of water)!
Any smoothie recipes I need to try? (Feel free to share a link of one of your favourite smoothies below!)
