My children love fruit. All fruit. Or so I thought. This week I bought some delicious looking kiwis expecting them to be devoured, just like every other piece of fruit that enters our home. But to my surprise, both children point blank refused to try them. So faced with four kiwis and two fickle children, I came up with this refreshing kiwi avocado lime smoothie. And once it was made, it was so delicious that my husband and I polished it all off without letting the kiddos get a look in.
Not only is this smoothie refreshing and extremely hydrating, it is also packed with more than 100% of your daily recommended amount of Vitamin C, as well as plenty of protein, fiber, potassium, Vitamin K, calcium, iron, and ‘good’ fat. It makes a wonderfully energizing breakfast smoothie, or a great protein-filled snack for mid-morning or afternoon.
