Oh my word! People…this is one special post! Last year I hosted a challenge called the Colourful Smoothie Challenge and it was such a smashing success – OF COURSE I’m doing it again this year! Around 50 people signed up for it and this year, I hope even more of you will! This is totally going to be annual thing!
It’s SO exciting!
In case you didn’t remember from last year, here’s what’s happening!
For the whole month of August I’m challenging myself to one smoothie a day – and I’m challenging you to join in with me! All you have to do is tweet me pictures of your smoothies! Ya’ll know I LOVE my smoothies (my instagram is littered with smoothie pics)
Don’t you want to enjoy a colourful smoothie like this every day?! But that’s not all, because there are prizes! Really REALLY amazing ones!
It’s the biggest contest/giveaway I’ve ever had at Colourful Palate – some AMAZING companies chimed in and said they wanted to be a part of it and I’m beyond EXCITED!
Guess what’s happening for the first prize ($555 value!)? Vega is giving away a large tub of Vega One French Vanilla, a bottle of Antioxidant Oil, a box of Vega One bars, and a box of Vega Sport Energizers (reviews coming later!). Woah. Not only that…there’s more! The lovely people at BlenderBottle are giving away their new GoStak containers (LOVE!)…AND the amazing Quest folks (REVIEW coming people!) are giving away a box of their bars…AND my favourite spirulina people at Nutrex are giving away a bottle of spirulina! AND THEN Maine Drinking Straws are giving away 2 stainless steel straws (with a brush) too! WHAAAAAAT!!! And that, my friends is first prize (also pictured below)!
For second prize ($333 value!), Vega is giving away a large tub of Vega One French Vanilla, “Whole Foods to Thrive” book, and a large tub of Vega Sport Vanilla. Then Maine Drinking Straws is giving away a couple more straws (with a brush). Seriously people.
Can you see why I’m SO excited! You’ll be hearing more from the sponsors later too (yay!!) as this month will be full of smoothie fun, recipes, and dazzling COLOUR! We are so going to rock getting extra healthy! I hope you can set some goals (sharing mine soon!) for this month and totally BLAST August out of the water!!
So how do you join in on the fun?
Make sure to comment below and let me know if you’re planning on joining the challenge! I will be making spreadsheets so I can keep tabs on everyone’s scores!
From there, it’s all about scoring points. Whoever gets the most points will win the grand prize and next will win second…and so on…
You will take a picture (with your phone/Instagram/camera) and tweet your smoothie to me (@colourfulpalate) using the hashtag #colourfulsmoothie – keep in mind I can’t track you if you forget to add the hashtag (NOTE: if you don’t have twitter you can email your photo to me – I don’t want to leave anybody out! It’s email@example.com)
BASICALLY – just tweet me photos of your smoothies! It’s SO EASY!
Here’s how the scoring system works: (and don’t worry, I’ll be tracking all your points!)
- 1 point for every smoothie you tweet/email
- 3 points for telling your friends about the challenge on twitter using this link http://tinyurl.com/m2lb4by (remember to use the hashtag #colourfulsmoothie) – up to 3x
- 3 points every time you make one of my smoothies (mention it when you tweet your photo in)
- 4 points for sharing about the challenge on your blog/site AND adding the image below – you must link to me so I’ll know to count your points
- 5 points for having a smoothie EVERY DAY for the month of August!
Mmm…smoothies! You can use Instagram to make up your pictures (if you want), but they don’t count as points unless you push them to twitter with the appropiate hashtag #colourfulsmoothie). I use good ‘ole Instagram for smoothie photos ALL the time (quite obviously).
The challenge will be over on August 31st – and the winners will be announced on the 2nd of September. The weekly prizes will be announced throughout the challenge. It’s open to US and Canada.
If you have any questions – you can ask me on my Facebook page or shoot me an email at (firstname.lastname@example.org)
