We have announced the green smoothie Winner!
Thank you for all those who participated in the Green Smoothie Contest. It was a lot of fun for everyone, especially everyone over here in the Raw Food Magazine Office. I don’t think any of us have had that many green smoothies in a week.
It was a hard decision especially because there were so many tasty and nutritious smoothies submitted. We said promise that we would announce a winner and so we all threw our votes into a box and Jolene Harmon came out the winner.
Here’s the basic recipe for Jolene’s Green Smoothie, if you would like to make it yourself.
