Kiwi Drink 1

Considered by some to be New Zealand’s finest gift to the Northern Hemisphere, kiwis are small, brown-skinned fruit with emerald green, sweet, buttery flesh. They have the best flavor when they are slightly soft to the touch. Allow to ripen at room temperature, then remove the peel with a knife.

Kiwi Drink 2


The light green color of this smoothie is as refreshing as its flavors. The mint from a garden gives just the right touch of delicate freshness without affecting the texture.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups sliced fresh ripe kiwi, peeled
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • juice from one lime
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 2-3 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Check for sweetness, add more honey if necessary.

    So pretty! I really like kiwis, but tend to forget about buying them. I'll have to pick up a few for this smoothie.
