Are you already having smoothies but looking for some new recipes?
Love smoothies BUT concerned about the sugar content?
Want to start making smoothies but not sure how?
The smoothie challenge is simply to add in one delicious smoothie a day. It works well for the busy person who is trying to get healthier and is looking for something simple and easy to add into their meals.
What are the benefits of having a smoothie?
- Smoothies are a fabulous way to consume a variety of different fruits or vegetables at one time
- Full of vitamins, enzymes and minerals
- Easy to digest, which mean optimal assimilation of your nutrients
- Great for stabilizing blood sugar if you include healthy fats, protein and fiber. However, smoothie made with mainly fruit will get you on a sugar roller coaster.
- Terrific for cleansing the body of toxicity
An easy way to add more fiber to your diet for optimal bowel function. I recommend adding either chia or flax seeds, as both are high in fibre.
A healthy smoothie contains vegetables, some fruit and healthy fats and protein and is low in sugar

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the Smoothie Challenge?
I’ve created a Free 15 Day Smoothie Challenge, an ebook that you can download which explains benefits of smoothies, how to make them, what fruits are high in sugar plus recipes. For instance did you know that 1 cup of coconut water has 6 grams of sugar whereas 1 cup of orange juice has 21 grams.
Do I have ONLY smoothies during the 15 Day Smoothie Challenge?
NO, you should as always have your regular balanced meals. The smoothies are NOT a meal replacement but can be had as a snack or to complement your meal.
Do I need to buy any equipment?
You do not need a high speed blender to do this 15 day Smoothie Challenge. However, you will need a blender.
I can’t find all the ingredients, can I still do the challenge?
Smoothies are super easy to make and I suggest using ingredients you can easily source where you live. You can easily substitute ingredients, baby spinach for kale or chard. Have flax seeds instead of chia seeds. Keep it simple so you can complete the 15 Days Challenge:)
