Apple and Kiwi Fruit Green Smoothie

Apple and Kiwi Fruit Green Smoothie

Happy New Year!! 

Maybe you are nursing a killer hang over, maybe you have made a resolution to be healthier in 2015 or maybe you just want to drink something that tastes great. Regardless, this smoothie is a great way to kick start your new year.

I haven't made any particular resolutions myself, instead I think I will adopt the intention 
"Wherever you are, be all there."

Yeah, I'm happy with that!

Apple and Kiwi Fruit Green Smoothie

The apple and kiwi fruit in this smoothie makes it sweeter than one made entirely from green veggies and it is so full of good stuff you can feel very self-satisfied about how you have started the year!

Keep it simple and just throw it all in the blender. You don't need to peel the kiwi fruit or core the apple, it all gets blended up and just adds to the nutrient load.

I'm feeling good about the next 365 days, I hope 2015 is amazing for you too!

  1. I have never tried kiwi fruit in a smoothie. i always wondered why the hell it was in the fruitshops. Bam, here it is. I am going out to get some now. happy New Year

    1. Ha, ha, I think that honey dew fits into that category for me, maybe I need to try that in a smoothie too! Happy New Year to you too!

  2. I'm not a huge kiwi fruit fan, but I think this could be enough to persuade me to eat it. Lovely recipe.

  3. Loving my green smoothies, but not so much kiwi fruit. But this looks good enough to convince me to try it anyway. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. I love chamomile tea. Green supplements are considered by many to be the best tasting energy drinks on the market. It’s probably because they have added ingredients like mango to help smooth out the taste.
