15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Day 15: Green Sunrise Smoothie (and a bonus!)

Well, folks, our 15-day smoothie journey has come to an end. I have to say, this was tedious at times because I don’t really do daily projects very well. I can’t keep to that kind if a schedule. BUT, I’m happy I did, because I discovered a lot of new smoothie recipes that taste great, are packed with nutrients and foods I don’t eat enough of, and satisfy my pregnant sweet tooth. I call that a win.

To conclude our journey, I have a pretty ugly (but tasty! and easy!) smoothie for you. The Green Sunrise smoothie. It a variation on the Sunrise Smoothie from yesterday, but with spinach. You can use whatever berries you have on hand. I happened to have raspberries.

15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Days 5 & 6: Berry Coconut Dreamcicle Smoothie

Ok. I’ll admit it. I’m a cheater. I ate a smoothie yesterday, but didn’t post it, and then I made the same one today but used different berries.

But hear me out. This smoothie is so creamy and delicious and packed with nutrients, how could I NOT make it a few times? Plus, it’s pretty, and after my road tar experience the other day, I needed a few that were easy on the eyes as well as for sure delicious. This one hit the mark.

Yesterday, I made this smoothie with strawberries:

Today, I made it with raspberries:

I’m not going to lie to you. Tomorrow, I might make it with blueberries. And the day after, I might just make it with the leftovers of all three.

Protip: If you use frozen berries and a frozen banana (just slice it up before you freeze it), you don’t need ice cubes.
