Smoothie challenge

This week I issued a smoothie challenge to my coworkers. The rules are simple. Make a smoothie each morning for breakfast, and report to the group what was in your smoothie. My motivation was two-fold:

1. Smoothies are a super-healthy way to start the day, and I wanted to be accountable for having one each morning this week.

2. I wanted to get (and give) new ideas for smoothie ingredients/combos/add-ins.

Today was day two, and here was my smoothie this morning (LOVE the vibrant green!):


The contents:

3/4 cup almond milk

1 TB ground flax

1 TB chia seeds

1/2 scoop Vega WFHO Vanilla Chai  <—- I don’t really like this stuff but am determined to use up the tub I have because it is $$$$. I just add 1/2 a scoop at a time and it isn’t bad

1/2 frozen banana

1/3 cup canned pumpkin

1 small apple

sm piece fresh ginger

tons of spinach


On the side I had a small bowl of Nature’s Path Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise Cereal. I ate the smoothie with a spoon and kept replenishing the top with cereal. The fresh ginger really made this smoothie. I am having fun thinking up new recipes to try.

Now help me out. What is your favorite smoothie or unique smoothie ingredient? I need some creative ideas!
