Spinach Kiwifruit Smoothie with Pomegranate Blueberry Juice | Nutritious and Healthy drink to start the day
This has to be one of the best and refreshing smoothie that I’ve tried so far. Yes! Spinach Kiwifruit with an added touch of Pomegranate Blueberry Juice a completely nutritious way to start the early morning day or an afternoon snack. Spinach Kiwifruit Smoothie with Pomegranate Blueberry Juice is a 4 ingredient smoothie made in minutes and packed with loads of vitamins and minerals.
I’m one for using up any leftover fruits and vegetables. I hate throwing out or wasting them. A lot of time and effort is gone into growing and producing fruits & vegetables and to bring it home and not use it and throw it out….. no good! 🙁 I absolutely don’t agree with doing that, so that’s when the smoothie idea comes in to work. Smoothies can be created in many different versions, flavors and textures and they all can be made to your liking.
Spinach is one of those green leafs, if not taken care of properly they tend to go bad fast. I particularly like to use baby spinach or organic baby spinach these come pre-packed in plastic contains and actually have an expiry date or a good till date on them. “Didn’t realize that vegetables came with expiry dates” Oh well! I guess that all part of the packaging and branding world ! The best part of this spinach is that they have been pre-washed 3x, which means a lot of the bacterial germs and soil has been removed. I still wash it one more time before using it ….just to be on the safe side.
Kiwi fruit is another unusual fruit, its outer look is brown and furry and the inside is a complete opposite bright greenish white with black tiny little seeds that are completely edible. They say that this fruit adds a dramatic flare to any fruit salad.
My first experience with kiwi wasn’t the most pleasant, I saw it and bought it and thought no need to wait. I cut the solid hard kiwi in half and took a huge bit into it ….and was completely disgusted. No really! it was extremely sour, the rough outer layer with impossible to chew and the seeds were annoying. That didn’t stop me …I did a little bit of research on the fruit and discovered that this is one those super foods that needs to be enjoyed as is because the benefits are phenomenal completely packed with “Vitamin C”.
Now, things are different I buy kiwi fruit, but the secret is in waiting till it ripens up. Let it sit out for a bit whether on the kitchen counter or in the fridge, it will start to soften up, but remember not to soft just to the point where it’s peel able and enjoyable. By ripening up the Kiwi fruits gets more sweeter and the rough hard taste instantly vanishes.
Pre-blended juices are another excellent add in source of vitamin, I use Tropicana Pomegranate Blueberry blend juice in this smoothie. It’s readily available in all of our major grocery stores. The juice is 100% fruit and vegetable flavored with no add sugar and it’s a got a good source of “Vitamin A & C” and potassium. The taste is great and when added to smoothies with other naturally flavored fruits and vegetables …it’s completely mind-blowing.
Well. this was part of my weekly morning smoothie update ….this week was a “start the day with a glass of freshly blended smoothie week” I had put the Indian Chai (tea) second and started off the early morning with a cold refreshing glass of delicious, super healthy and super fast smoothie. “Spinach Kiwifruit Smoothie with Pomegranate Blueberry Juice”
