Announcing the 2015 Colourful Smoothie Challenge

25
May

Colourful Smoothie Challenge

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 down your goals and then make them happen!

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!

Who wouldn't want to drink a #colourfulsmoothie a day - join in on the fun for the month of June, have fun, win prizes, and reach your goals!

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!

  • Strawesome: 15% any order through the end of July. Coupon code: SMOOTHIE15

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.

Challenge Page

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!

Do you like your smoothies? Do you want to get extra fit and healthy for summer? Join in this month long challenge to detox your body (and your life!) with weekly challenges, healthy motivation, and sick prizes!

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 (charissa@colourfulpalate.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!

    I’m 100% entering! I have a couple questions though:
    I can’t post anything to facebook and I do not have a twitter so would Instagram just be fine? And I could direct message you on insta the places that I promoted your challenge and blog and video :), would that work? I’m so stoked to be a part of this it’s an amazing idea!!

  2. Charissa

    Maggie – Instagram works great! You’ll see once the Colourful Smoothie Challenge page is live (June 1st), that on the rafflecopter has a space you can just put the links (instead of DMing me – because Rafflecopter is tracking everything)! It’s super easy. Look forward to seeing your smoothies!

  3. Bethany

    I’m in! :) I just post my smoothie photos directly to you?

  4. Annie

    I’m in! Looking forward to drinking to a healthier me! Thanks girl for organizing this! You rock and inspire me so!

  5. Shalayne

    Super excited for this! I’ve been having a smoothie for breakfast for a couple of years now…. the best way to start the day! I kinda get stuck in ruts though of the same old, same old. Ready to try some new ones!

  6. Charissa

    Annie and Shalayne, looking forward to you both joining in!

  7. Darleen Weston

    Count me in!!! I want to add more super foods to my diet and also loss a little weight! :) Hooray!! Can’t wait!

  8. Charissa

    Bethany, I am so excited you are joining! There is a page on the top of my site that says Colourful Smoothie Challenge. Click that and there will be a box where you put in your entries! Do not hesitate to comment if you have any other questions!

  9. Tirzah

    Can’t wait for this! I missed out on it last year. It seems like just the right season to give this a shot. That Cinderella jar though… *swoons*

  10. Natasha Caminsky

    So glad you’re doing this again! I am in :)

  11. Margaret

    Can’t wait! I’m in :)

  12. Jordan

    I’m in! I’m still nursing so I have been leery to start a full on diet but this sounds totally doable and safe :) Can’t wait to get started!

  13. Sarah Conklin

    I’m in!!!! I somehow missed the smoothie challenge last year, so I’m thrilled to join again this year. :)

  14. Heidi Jost

    We are all in! Hoping this does three things for me and the kids: we can do something fun and cool together during a hot month, they can diversify their lil narrow tastebuds with new flavours, and they can learn the basics of smoothie making. Excited!!

  15. Charissa

    Heidi! I’m so stoked! <3

  16. Anca

    I would love to take the challenge. I’m from UK, so I’ll not join the contest. I drink smoothies, but not as often as I want. So this challenge is what I need.

  17. Charissa

    Awesome Anca! Wish it was worldwide open, but I’m excited you’re taking the challenge anyway!

  18. Mary Beth Jackson

    Sounds like fun! I am in!

  19. Sue

    I’m all for the challenge – my daughter and I are Green Smoothie champions!

  20. Molly

    I am so excited. I missed it last year but I will be participating this year for sure. I’d love to win the first prize for that planner (amongst everything else) but I am also using these as snacks vs. meal replacements so who know’s how I’ll rank! It’s fun none the less. You are always so positive and I love trying out your recipes.

    Do you get 2 points if you post it on instagram AND twitter or just 1 since it’s the same smoothie? Also, if we don’t have a blog (I do but I hardly use it so I feel dishonest posting it there when my followers have plummetted/ it’s been a year since posting) can we post it on say Instagram instead?

    Thanks so much for hosting this again. My mom is even going to participate alongside of me!!

  21. Jordan

    I’m so in! Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a smoothie every day! Thanks for this awesome challenge! (:

    […] as I wanted. I use the food processor a lot though, but for other things. Until now, when I saw Charissa’s Smoothie Challenge. Nothing gets me more motivated as a […]

  23. Elizabeth

    Excited to see how this goes!!!

  24. Charissa

    Molly, excited you’re joining in this year! If it’s the same smoothie, it’s one point. You can totally use Instagram as a post (for your web post) – the Rafflecopter requires a link, not necessarily a post link vs. instagram, so you’re golden! <3

  25. Shuntell

    I’m in!!

  26. Rachel Rowbottom

    I’d like to enter! I’m exciting to be having more smoothies, as they’re my favourite! I’ll be posting on my blog and Instagram. I don’t have Facebook so could I use something else?
    Sincerely,
    Rachel

  27. Charissa

    Instagram works fine! Excited you’re joining!

  28. Caleigh

    Sounds like fun! I could use a good excuse to get back into smoothies! I’m in! :)

  29. Renee

    I think I want to play again if I can it will be a fun way to start my sons Summer. I see many Low sugar Chocolate PB Shakes in mu future, Yum!

  30. Hailey Brianna

    I’m absolutely joining! I already have a smoothie for breakfast every single day haha. I can’t imagine ever not having smoothies again :D Super stoked!

    I have a question though: I had a smoothie yesterday, but didn’t take a picture to post on any of my social media and didn’t hear about this challenge until last night. Is there any way that I can make up for not submitting one yesterday?

  31. Dana

    Hi, I just found this page. I would like to know if I can still join the smoothie challenge? I had a smoothie bowl this morning and yesterday as well. I do not have a Twitter account but I am on Instagram and do post there.
    Thank you,
    Dana

  32. Charissa

    Hailey, excited you’re joining! I’m fine with you submitting the same link/picture twice to count for yesterday! <3 Good luck!

  33. Charissa

    Dana – ABSOLUTELY! I’d love it if you joined! Good luck and can’t wait to see your smoothies!

  34. Cheryl

    Really enjoying the Challenge :)

  35. Molly

    I didn’t realize you could only get one entry per day. I went to submit my entries today, but it only let me do one. Also, one day I drank 2 smoothies so can I get credit for that? The rafflecopter just won’t let me enter more than one Eek.

  36. masala girl

    I’m in again!
    -Priya :)

  37. Charissa

    Molly – Just shot you an email! >3
