Summer Smoothie Challenge

It’s weather for smoothies!! This Summer Smoothie Challenge was a lot of fun, (drinking and photographing.) You might be thinking, spinach! Yuck! I had no idea what spinach smoothies would be like, but surprisingly I didn’t taste the spinach. It’s really worth trying. Spinach is high in Vitamin A, calcium, potassium and magnesium. Half a cup of spinach will give you the same amount of iron as three ounces of beef. Au revoir meat!

Day One – This was amazing! My favourite smoothie.

Two cups of blackberries
One small banana
Two big handfuls of spinach
One cup of water.
Two tablespoons of natural plain yoghurt

Blend in a blender! Top with mint leaves.

Summer Smoothie Challenge_Day Two

Day Two – Tasted like really sour apple juice. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Two granny smith apples
Two big handfuls of spinach
One cup of water
Half a cup of ice

Blend it!

Summer Smoothie Challenge_Day Three

Day Three – Intensely tangy and delicious.

One cup of raspberries
1/3 cup of coconut flakes
Two big handfuls of spinach
One cup of water

Blend! Top with shaved coconut.

Summer Smoothie Challenge_Day Four
 Day Four – This was rather strange. It was like drinking muesli; a bit sweet for me – my least favourite smoothie.

One and a half cups of sliced peach
Two big handfuls of spinach
One tablespoon of honey
1/4 cup of raw oats
One cup of water

Blend that smoothie!! Top with ice blocks.

Summer Smoothie Challenge_ Day Five          Summer Smoothie Challenge_Blackberries
I decided to do something completely different for the last smoothie. I used blackberries I picked from near the beach which made it extra special!

Day Five – In love with the combination of ginger and berries.

Half a cup of blackberries
Half a cup of raspberries
Chunk of ginger to taste
Three tablespoons of natural plain yoghurt
Half a cup of ice blocks
Half a cup of milk or water

Blend and enjoy!
