Healthy Grocery Girl (Megan Roosevelt) and I hope you’re enjoying the Glow Smoothie Challenge that started last week and are already feeling more refreshed and energized. If you missed out last last week don’t forget to head back for You’re a Peach smoothie recipe. The challenge keeps getting better so if you are just now following along you can also check out the link below for all of the info and benefits of each smoothie.



To get this week started on a healthy note, take a look at the smoothie below for week 2 and substitute it for a meal each day. Follow along with the other requirements to ensure that the smoothie challenge will work for you. I loved the peach smoothie last week and look forward to making this next one right now. What are you waiting for… Start GLOWING!

    It was a little watery and vegetable-y tasting for me… I added more ice and some fresh orange juice to help the taste and consistency. Thanks for the recipe!

      I like the add of orange juice! I’ll have to try that as well. If this one is too green and vegetable tasting you should try one of the other ones as well and substitute those in as you like. 😉

    My fiance and I are a week behind but we already feel great from the challenge. I totally agree with Chelsea about how watery it is so I will try more ice cubes tomorrow. I found the taste to be a nice kick but we are putting the ginger through a press so maybe that’s the difference?
