Watermelon-Kiwi Smoothie

Watermelon Kiwi Smoothie

Watermelon Kiwi Smoothie

I love Kiwi and everyone loves Watermelon :) so this makes a perfect smoothie to start your day with. I also added a banana to give it a little more creaminess. If you dont feel like dicing up a whole watermelon most supermarkets offer pre diced in little containers. A bit more expensive but a definite time saver.

 

3 cups diced watermelon
2 whole kiwi’s
1 banana
3 cups of ice
1 teaspoon of ground flax seed (optional)

Makes about 4-5 cups

Little note on the kiwi, be sure you peel it first or you’ll have a very fuzzy not so smoothie :) An easy to peel is to cut off both ends. The insert a table spoon just under the skin, back of spoon to the skin. Push it in then carefully turn the kiwi keep ing the spoon close to the skin. Once all the way around the kiwi will just slide out. Another note, if you add things like the flax seed and protein your smoothie color may not look like most pictures.

Coconut Water Smoothies

This was my first experience with a coconut water smoothie. I had read about coconut water helping with acid reflux so I bought a couple boxes of it… of course before ever trying it. Not a big fan of the taste, but it is great for a good smoothie ingredient. The portions below make about one serving, but you can of course scale up and share with the family.

11 ounces coconut water (unsweetened)
1/3 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup ice
1 tbsp lemon juice
