Smoothie week - part 2


As promised, here is the second part of my smoothie week :) You can read my first post, with my own smoothie recipes here. I only had two more days left, but I also wanted to share the recipes included in the little booklet I received from Alpro. I must admit, I was a bit sceptical about the beetroot concoction, but I gave it a go anyway to see, if it is tastes nice. 

I really enjoyed my #alproam (Alpro Almond Mornings) smoothie week and it made me realise how much I actually miss having a glass of fruity goodness every day. I usually drink a lot of smoothies in summer, but don't feel like having cold drinks in winter, so it was a nice change. 

I also got myself a juicer and started drinking freshly made vegetable juices every day and I am feeling very energised. I think I might do a juice and smoothie cleanse soon. I will make sure to share my experience on the blog :)

Anyway... Here are the #alproam recipes suggested by Alpro UK. All of them are made with their Unsweetened Almond Milk. Remember, that you can use frozen ingredients for your smoothies. They are usually more nutritious than fresh supermarket options anyway!

MONDAY:

I made the 'Blue Monday Smoothie' for myself and my husband and we both loved it. It tastes like my favourite banana and spinach smoothie, but with added antioxidants from the blueberries. 


TUESDAY:

WEDNESDAY:

 THURSDAY:

I made the beetroot smoothie as well, but it was a bit too rich for my taste. I will probably use half a beetroot the next time. It tasted better than I expected though and the orange added a fresh twist to it.


FRIDAY:

SATURDAY:

SUNDAY:

Do you fancy trying any of the recipes included in the booklet? Would you try a beetroot or tomato smoothie?
