Welcome to Day 1 of the Green Smoothie Challenge! Today you’ll learn how to make a green smoothie. The ideal quantity of Green Smoothie is 4 glasses (1 litre) a day. Include 200 grams ( 7oz) of leafy greens and 150 to 300 grams (5 to 10oz) of fruit plus 1 to 2 glasses of water. If this is too much for you to begin with, start with half this amount and gradually increase each day.Place your fruit into the blender with water and blend for 25 seconds. Add your leafy greens and blend until very smooth (30 seconds in a powerful blender and longer if your blender is not as powerful).
The recipes we are giving you for your green smoothies are just guidelines. You can choose to try the recipes provided each day, or use your favourite recipe for the entire challenge. The important thing is that you are using in 2-3 large handfuls of leafy greens and fruit and that you are enjoying the experience! Feel free to experiment, invent your own favourite recipes and share them on the Forum.
Please keep your questions coming, and share any breakthroughs or challenges you may be experiencing with your health and well-being. By sharing we can really help and inspire one another over the next 14 days. We will endeavour to answer as many of your questions as possible through on the Green Smoothie Challenge Forum. Here’s to your health!
