Strawberry Kiwi Smoothies

20 Jun , 2009  

Now that it’s summer, I find that I’ve been making a smoothie almost everyday. Smoothies can be very healthy or not AS healthy depending on what you put in, fruits, ice cream, etc.  ..I’m sure you all understand what I mean by that. It’s just a very quick and easy way to get your daily fruits.

Golden Kiwis! I took this last week when they weren’t ripe yet.

Been eating them the last week, and I saved the last two to make a smoothie. I like the Golden Kiwi’s more than the normal green ones because they’re not as tart and sour. There also isn’t a lot of fuzz on them, and you could scrub it off and eat just like that. I however prefer to use my nifty spoon for eating kiwis..it’s got a “knife” to cut the kiwi in half an the opposite end is a spoon!

Strawberry season is almost over, and my mom bought a couple boxes so there’s plenty in my fridge, so I took some out.

I should have moved those two seeds on the cut surface, but I only noticed after I uploaded the pictures. Oh well!

Not really a recipe, but I might as well tell you what I used.

2 golden kiwis, roughly chopped
4 strawberries, roughly chopped
3 scoops of vanilla ice cream
honey (optional, I liked the slight tartness the strawberries imparted)
couple ice cubes

Blend till smooth, enjoy. :)
