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!

I’m hiding from this challenge I’m sorry – I’m just not a smoothie fan! I still love your blog though ;-)

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

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!

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?

Reply

Laura April 16, 2014 at 7:40 pm

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 :-)
