What it's all about
tuja’s Green Smoothie challenge is designed to add a big dose of healthy to your daily routine.
We think it’s easiest to have your green smoothie for breakfast - but maybe it’s lunch instead. You decide where it fits. And yes, you’ve read it right - each smoothie will feature something GREEN. Why green? (Read about that here
BUT worry not - even if you’re a picky eater, these blends are going to taste great. Adding the green stuff doesn’t really alter the classic fruity smoothie flavour. Plus, this year the tuja team will personally taste-test every recipe to ensure maximum tastiness before any smoothie passes your lips. Deal?
