MKTG NY Smoothie Challenge!

with one comment

In keeping with our health and wellness initiative for September, we decided it would be a fun twist to have an office smoothie challenge! We had everyone submit their favorite smoothie recipes, complete with a creative name, for a chance to win a prize AND have the entire office try the winning submissions!  These three took the crown:

“So What it’s Vegan” – 1 cup light soy vanilla soy milk, 1 scoop vega one choice-o-lot protein smoothie, 1/2 ripe banana, 1 cup of ice

 “ The Beyonce” – 1/2 frozen banana, 1 handful kale, 1 handful spinach, large spoonful almond butter, 1/4 cup almond milk, splash vanilla extract, dash of cinnamon, blend with 2 cups of ice

“Citrious Altius Fruitius” – 1 cup water, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1 fresh or frozen banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 peeled and halved kiwi, 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1 blood orange slice, 1 tsp coconut oil, 4-6 ice cubes

This past Friday we had a few of our best Brand Ambassadors mix the ingredients of the winning smoothies for everyone to try, and yes they were all delicious! Take a look below at our photo journey!
