Last weekend I signed up for the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge from http://simplegreensmoothies.com/30-day-challenge. Co-founders of the site are Jadah & Jen – two mothers who are passionate about health, life, and creating delicious green smoothies. What I really loved about them is that they don’t view this as a diet, but rather a lifestyle!! True that – how can you not love them already?! Check out their site to learn more about them and what their mission is.
I have REALLY been enjoying this challenge…if you are joining me, how do you feel?? I have noticed an increase in energy and my body just feels good. The smoothies I have tried so far have all been really tasty and satisfying – I have usually been drinking them for breakfast or lunch and they keep my quite full!!
I realized that I signed up mid challenge, so I only received four recipes to end this month – I used a few of those and selected the rest of the recipes for Week 2 on my own. I posted the Week 2 shopping list on my Facebook page – Fresh, Fit Life Facebook Page
Green Smoothie #9 : Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Smoothie
This was our after school snack today – and believe it or not….BOTH of my children loved it!! My older daughter is pretty picky when it comes to “unique” foods but she actually polished off most of this one!! I couldn’t even believe it – it’s a tasty treat, despite the color, it’s delicious!!!

I also just ordered these re-useable Stainless Steel Drinking Straws and I CAN’T WAIT until they arrive so I can use them!!
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1 cup cherries, pitted*
- 1 banana
- *Other fruit can be used, such as berries.
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
***I substituted raspberries on this one because I could not find fresh cherries at the store.
