Kiwi Spinach Green Smoothie

I usually make very basic green smoothies. The only ingredients are green apples and spinach. Today I decided to add a little something special- kiwi! This exotic fruit is rich in potassium, vitamin C, and natural protein digesting enzyme, actinidain. It’s also one of the lowest pesticide containing conventionally grown foods, so you don’t have to buy organic. Here’s how to make a super green smoothie with it:

Ingredients:
1 kiwi, no need to peel!
1/2 green apple
1 handful baby spinach
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 c water
Handful of ice cubes

1. Combine all ingredients in a powerful blender and gradually increase speed from low to high until very smooth. Serve immediately.

I still have lots of kiwi to use up. That’s what I get for buying it at Costco! Maybe I will come up with more kiwi recipes. For now, I’ll be enjoying more of these refreshing green smoothies.
