    All of your smoothies are so pretty! I definitely agree that simple green smoothies are best, and that’s something I’m touching on in both of my linkup posts (well, once I write the second one for next week obviously!)

      I think it’s quite nice to get back to the basic ones, I know I had a phase of making really elaborate ones with loads of ingredients!

  • Maria @ runningcupcake

    Love looking at all the smoothies- when the weather heats up I am sure I will give a few of them a try :)

    I missed my smoothies so much during live below the line, loved having them back the last 2 days!

      I bet you did, I would really crave them I think!

  • Mary

    The smoothies look great in the smoothie jars. (Adding to my list of things I don’t need but definitely do need!)
    It’s been interesting seeing which smoothies I preferred. I was certain I’d love the peanut butter ones, but actually it has been the kiwi flavoured ones which have really won me over!

      Haha, well you never know you might win one off me! I need to try these kiwi ones :-)

  • Jess

    This green smoothie challenge looks fascinating! I’m especially interested in the last smoothie with kale, cherries, avocado, cocoa powder and coconut water (coz I’m a big fan of cocoa). Do you have certain proportion for each ingredient?

    • Laura

      I then to use a handful of kale, about 200g of cherries, half an avocado, 2 tbsp of cocoa powder and 1-2 cups of coconut water – enough to make it blend :-)
