I’ve just mentioned in my other post that I’ve been away from blogging for three months. There’s been no recipes, no health advice and no blender parties for that long – did you miss it all as much as I did?
A lot of hard decisions (and hard work) have occurred lately, and to allow me to bring more varied posts to you weekly, the Wholefood Blender Party has now turned into a monthly event.
From now on, you’ll have three weeks of posting time to add up to five links to the delicious wholefood drinks you’ve made recently. After the success of our recent link-up competition, I’m also going to be hosting a $30 giveaway every single month – just for sharing your recipes! While I sincerely apologise that I have been off the radar recently, I am hope you will appreciate that I’m still 100% committed to sharing our passion for creating delicious real food beverages.
As we’re starting off late this month, the party will remain open until the 31st July. Feel free to post your real drink recipes, share wellness advice, find new blogs and meet new people. I’ll be posting a recipe during the month as well, pinning all the linked posts to the Blender Party Pinterest board and selecting 3 entries to highlight from the previous post. Please also note, I’ve also started a new beverages Pinterest group board for anyone interested in contributing, follow me on Pinterest and then drop me an email with your Pinterest handle at firstname.lastname@example.org for an invite. Once you’ve joined, feel free to invite your friends too!
We’ve got some marvelous superfood and sleepytime taste sensations to catch up on from our last Wholefood Blender Party, because I don’t want you to miss out on the standout recipes just because I went AWOL! Try the Moringa Superfood Smoothie by Urban Naturale or the Easy Kale, Blueberry and Banana Smoothie by Natural Chow when you want a nutritious smoothie slurp or make some Warm Milk for Bedtime by Once Upon A Time In A Bed of Wildflowers for an extra deep slumber. All the contributors are super(food)stars and I really appreciate their hard work in showing everyone that healthy drinks can also be delicious!
