It’s almost June…and that means…the Colourful Smoothie Challenge is happening in just a few days! I’m beyond excited!
I think it’s safe to say I have an obvious smoothie obsession…and over three years ago I decided to turn that into an annual contest. Watch my video and get inspired to join in on the fun!
It’s going to be a MAGIC month. There will be weekly challenges, inspiration, and lots of recipes. Write some goals, tailor your smoothie challenge, grab a girlfriend and keep each other accountable for the month of June!
All you have to do is drink a #colourfulsmoothie every day!
If you want to slim down a little bit, maybe you’ll want to drink a Colourful Smoothie for a meal replacement. Participants from years past have done that, and it’s a super effortless (and smart) tactic.
Or if complementing your fitness regime with healthy eating is your goal, smoothies are an amazing idea. We all know that good nutrition helps get your ideal body composition – much more than long hours on the treadmill.
Whatever your goals, use this month to make them happen! You’ve got this!
Write them down! If you ever need some support or encouragement, I’m totally happy to be there for you and support you in your journey!
Honestly, look at these smoothies! What better way to get healthier than by slurping on deliciousness?
And can I just say…there are prizes!! You could win one of these hauls from my amazing sponsors!

So how do you join in on the fun?
First of all, make sure to comment below and let me know if you’re planning on joining the challenge!
From there, it’s all about getting entries. The more entries you put in, the more chances you have to win!
You will take a picture (with your phone/Instagram/camera) and tweet (or Instagram or Facebook, whatever works best for you) your smoothie to me (@colourfulpalate) using the hashtag #colourfulsmoothie.
In the past, I did all the work by making spreadsheets and spending hours counting everyone’s points and tracking everything down…it was a ridiculous amount of work. This year I’ve enlisted Rafflecopter to make it easier for you and for me.
I’ve made a separate page (see image below) and all you have to do, throughout the month of June, is click on the link and put in your entries! Easy peasy.
SO BASICALLY – just tweet me photos of your smoothies! It’s SO EASY!
There will be a ton of extra entries that you can do too! For example…
Here’s an idea of how the basic scoring system works (don’t worry Rafflecopter keeps track!):
- 1 point for every smoothie you send in
- 3 points for telling your friends about the challenge on social media using this link (http://tinyurl.com/kxkyspg) (remember to use the hashtag #colourfulsmoothie)
- 3 points every time you make one of my smoothies
- 4 points for sharing about the challenge on your blog/site AND adding the image below – you must link to me
- 4 points for sharing my Colourful Smoothie promo video (top of this post) on Facebook
- 5 points for having a smoothie EVERY DAY for the month of June!
The challenge will be over on June 30th – and the winners will be announced on the 1st of July. It’s open to US and Canada (as far as prizes are concerned, note also that most of the prizes can’t ship to PO Boxes), of course, anyone can join in the fun!
If you have any questions – you can ask me on my Facebook page or shoot me an email at (email@example.com). I’m happy to answer any query you might have!
On the first of June, the contest will start and under the Colourful Smoothie tab on the homepage will be updated and you can start adding your entries right away!
