Challenge: Drink a Green Smoothie Every Day for a Week!June 30th, 2015
Who doesn’t love a green smoothie? Here at Thrive Market HQ, loading up the blender with leafy greens, bananas, and whatever fresh fruit we have on hand is our favorite way to start the day.
That’s why we’re so excited for Simple Green Smoothies’ 7-Day Challenge. The premise is simple: Just drink one green smoothie—packed with fresh fruits and veggies—once a day for 30 days. Your daily routine doesn’t have to change otherwise, and all your other meals can stay the same.
This challenge is about forming a healthy habit—one that tastes as good as it is for you. Simple Green Smoothies also offers plenty of delicious recipes, like the Beginner’s Luck smoothie below. Join the challenge, and see for yourself what a difference a month makes!
Yield: 2 servings
Active time: 5 minutes
2 cups spinach, fresh (tightly packed)
2 cups water
1 cup mango
1 cup pineapple
Tightly pack your leafy greens into a measuring cup and toss into blender. Add water and blend together until all leafy chunks are gone. Next add in mango, pineapple and bananas and blend again.
