For years and years and years, I’ve turned my nose up at smoothies. I never found one that particularly appealed to me and making my own wasn’t an option as it meant I’d actually have do it! Well, I’ve recently become converted and practically have one everyday. It’s a perfect afternoon snack and a great way to get in extra good veggies. I haven’t experimented much beyond the Virgin Green Monster, but I have added blueberries to a few and have also tried the Chocolate Green Monster, because, lets face it, it turns the smoothie chocolatey! The other smoothie recipe I’ve tried is Laura’s Magical Cold Busting Smoothie as I was feeling a little under the weather over the weekend. It worked a treat and I’ll definitely use it next time the germs start to take hold!

My love of smoothies even extends to Pinterest and I’ve started a board to try and collate some recipes to try. I’m not very brave when it comes to making up my own recipes. I worry about wasting stuff in case it tastes awful, so if you’ve got any good smoothie recipes, let me know! In order to try and expand my smoothie repertoire, I’m taking part in the Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish Green Smoothie challenge.

KHGS-green-smoothie-challengeI’ll do a post each week to share the smoothies that I try and I’ll post pictures over on Instagram of my daily smoothie. My aim is to try and be a bit more adventurous with my smoothie recipes. Will you be taking part? Are you a lover of smoothies too?
