Day 2: Green Smoothie Challenge


Ok, so Day 2 wasn’t as wonderful as Day 1: I felt light-headed, spacey, unmotivated, fatigued, and uncoordinated. My mistake may have been making smaller portions of the smoothies & eating them every few hours, because I seemed to have a killer appetite from the moment I awoke. I should have made fewer smoothies, in larger amounts, because after splitting each smoothie w/ Mike, the amount that was left wasn’t satisfying my hunger. I don’t do well w/ low blood sugar & was trying something different from Day 1 – it’s an experiment & I’m still learning the recipes (and best approach) I like with so many greens!

This is a picture of the #1 Smoothie~

#1 Smoothie (pretty good):
2 cups red grapes
2 cups frozen blueberries
1 apple
1 banana
1 bundle romaine lettuce

#2 Smoothie (this was fabulous):
3 bananas
1 mango
1/2 pineapple
1 bundle kale
1/2 cup coconut water

#3 Smoothie (LOVED this):
2 bananas
1.5 cups frozen blueberries
1 heaping handful spinach
1 T Azteca Spirulina
spoonful raw, local honey

#4 Smoothie (YUM):
Fresh squeezed apple juice
few bananas
bundle of kale

#5 Smoothie (I didn’t measure a thing & was putting whatever was within reach into this concoction … low blood sugar frenzy):
2 handfuls frozen blueberries
2 handfuls frozen strawberries
3 bananas
2 handfuls spinach
1 bundle kale
1 T Fruits of the Earth
spoonful raw, local honey

  1. Thanks for your post Jeff. As you’ll notice, I put 1 bundle of leafy greens into every smoothie (equalling 1 lb) and took these recipes directly from the Raw Divas Green Smoothie Challenge. Have you checked that out? I’d recommend you try these smoothies and you’ll see how green they really are! Just because the color is reddish/purple (of 1 smoothie), doesn’t take away that their loaded with GREENS. They are not mostly fruit, but very balanced so it doesn’t taste bitter 🙂
