#TastyTuesday - A Smoothie Challenge

Jessica and I love smoothies - for breakfast, for a quick lunch, an afternoon snack and sometimes even as dinner after a late workout. I pretty much drink a smoothie a day but definitely find myself making the same one over and over and over again. I decided to do the August Colourful Smoothie Challenge, hosted by Charissa of the blog Colourful Palate, as a way to mix it up and get some new ideas.

The contest is pretty simple. All I have to do is have a smoothie every day and tweet a picture. Pretty simple and there are some great prizes at the end.

Our smoothies tend to be protein smoothies, especially after a workout. We use Designer Whey protein powders. You can make your smoothies without the protein powder - it just helps us get our daily allotment of protein! Below we've listed our favorite fruits, veggies, liquids and fun additions. Mix and match and find variations that you love!

Spinach, cucumbers, kale (just blend a lot!), parsley,
Bananas, blueberries, pineapple, mango, strawberries and avocados. Seasonal fruit is great - peaches, apricots, raspberries
Almond milk, water, coconut water (we stay away from dairy)
Fun additions:
Ginger, hemp seed, chia seeds, coconut flakes, cocao powder, cinnamon, almond butter

What's your favorite combination?
