Healthy Eating: #GreenSmoothie Challange - Week One.

Day 1: Celerade
Ingredients: 1 Apple, 1 lemon (3 tbsps. liquid), 2 celery stalks.

My Thoughts: Surprisingly, it tastes more like lemon. I am not a huge fan of celery so it was nice that the lemon overpowered the taste


Day 2-4: Sweet Kale
Ingredients: Watch the video above

My Thoughts: This is a sweet smoothie that is a hit with the entire family...and friends.


Day 5: Tropical Green

Ingredients:  Kale, banana, Orange, apple, mango, strawberry, blueberries, lemon, flaxseed

My Thoughts: Smooth and Sweet but not overly sweet.


Day 6: Apple Blossom
 
 Ingredients: 3 leaves of collard greens, 1 Apple, 3 tbsps of lime juice, 1 tbsps of flaxseed,  water

My Thoughts: Tart and Chewy. 30 mins after drinking this I had a huge burst of energy!! I felt as if I could run a marathon.
