Smoothies are a great way to get all your fruits and veggies in a day. This kiwi avocado combination gives a tasty combination of kiwi and avocado. This yummy smoothie is compliments of Sylvia from Feasting At Home.com. She is a caterer and chef, so she knows what combinations of fruit taste great together. She has a great selection of recipes on her site including a Rosemary Chicken Lasagna that is drool worthy. Make sure you stop by her blog and find something new and yummy to try.
KIWI AVOCADO SMOOTHIE WITH LIME AND HONEY
- ½ perfectly ripe large avocado
- 2 kiwi- peeled
- ⅛ C lime juice + 1 T
- ⅛ C-1/4 C Almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, aloe juice, fruit juice- just enough to get the blender going.
- honey to taste 1-2 T
- 2-3 ice cubes
- Place the liquid in the blender first, then fruit and ice. Cover. Start on low speed, increasing to high speed. Blend it up until creamy and smooth.
- And remember, don’t ever stick a spoon or spatula in blender while it’s running.
- Makes one 10 oz glass.
This is such a simple smoothie recipe and it lets me customize it to our own dietary needs. I think we would like this best with pineapple juice, although lactose free milk would probably be Em’s choice. If you can use local honey. Honey from a local bee keeper is a very healthy option. I’ve always been told that eating local honey can help reduce allergies. Hey, I’ll try anything I can to reduce allergy symptoms.
Now I just have to buy a new blender that will pulverize the ice into a smoothie drink.
