Christmas Green Smoothie Challenge

Smoothies in the Mapperton Plant-Based Cookbook

Today marked the first day of my first Green Smoothie Challenge!

This challenge entails drinking one green smoothie per day. This is to be done in the 12 days leading up to Christmas, and for the 12 days after Christmas.

Festive Indulgence

The festive period is more often than not, associated with indulgence. High up on that list is, for many people, food and drink.

With all of the Christmas parties, home baking, and edible gifts, many people find that they gain quite a few pounds over the Christmas period. Not only this, but many people often then find it extremely hard to then shift those extra pounds in the New Year. This is why I came up with the Christmas Green Smoothie Challenge.

Green Smoothie Challenge

A Christmas challenge involves far less pressure than a January crash “detox”!

Embarking on a green smoothie challenge in the days running up to Christmas can help to ease the associated stress of this time. At Christmas, we are all rushing around in the cold, shopping, cooking, attending parties, and maybe even having less sleep than usual.

Enjoying green smoothies will help to give your body a generous dose of vital vitamins and minerals. This is great for all-round health, but will also help keep colds, and dare I say it hangovers, at bay.

Not a Diet

This is not a diet or a detox. It is simply an encouragement to add all things green into your daily diet.

You can still eat your regular foods, as long as you drink one fresh green smoothie per day, preferably first hing in the morning. Drinking one green smoothie per day will help your immune system and may even keep those sugar cravings at bay – you may even feel like stopping at just one mince pie!
