Green Smoothie Challenge: Day 5 of 7 {Sun Warrior Protein Powder Giveaway}

Yesterday's lunch! Spinach leaves, organic tomato cubes, red onion & a few walnuts for garnish. And then, an organic apple on the side with an unhealthy amount of addicting almond butter. :P 

Give me a banana and I'll go bananas. :P This has been a favorite snack of late! 

Dinner last night was roasted chicken, spinach salad w/ sesame ginger dressing, and whole wheat toast drizzled with honey and coconut oil
So guess what? I missed my green smoothie yesterday. Oops . . . sorry, peoples! Thanks in advance for your forgiveness. :P It was about 10:30pm last night when I realized what had happened and there was no fixin' it then! 

But, today's green smoothie was REALLY good. :-) Can you believe it's Day 5?! Wow- over halfway  through!!! What's been your favorite part so far?

Super Sweet, Super Delicious Green Smoothie
1 orange, peeled and segmented
1/2 large banana
6 strawberries
2 cups spinach
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup ice

{I found this recipe off 2 Peas & Their Pod.}

Self-portrait! This smoothie was super sweet, to me, so I added a few more greens to slow down the sugar and shared some with a friend. :) 

Check out the thoughts & experiences of these Green Smoothie Challengers
  • Andrea writes about overcoming green smoothie skepticism 
  • Sara says, "Green smoothies incorporate some sort of leafy green vegetable in them . . . You can't even taste it - I swear! I never thought I'd be drinking carrots and spinach for breakfast . . . much less loving it. You should try a green smoothie, too! 
  • Stephanie, "I promise, with the right combination of fruit, you really can't taste the spinach. Use honey or even a little vanilla extract to sweeten the smoothie as needed."
{Have a link, too? Shoot me an e-mail so I can share with everyone!}

Also, I'd like to send out the call: I will be putting together a collage of pictures from the challengers as something fun for Day 7 of 7. I want to see yours! So, e-mail me your green smoothie pictures from this week so I can included you!

Enjoy this Sun Warrior protein giveaway! As a side note, I don't get anything out of this one - it's just for you guys. :) Have fun! I did a review on Sun Warrior earlier this year so if you have any questions - refer here.
