Ingredients

  • 2 kiwis
  • 1 heaping cup frozen pineapple
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 ½ heaping cups sliced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed

Instructions

  3. Blend until smooth.

  4. Serve chilled and refrigerate any leftover smoothie.

Recipe Notes

For added nutrition, leave the skin on the kiwi.

If you prefer to not use the skin of the kiwi in the smoothie, you can do one of two things.  Either cut it in half and scoop out the green kiwi or peel the kiwi with a vegetable peeler and then slice it up and add to the blender.

Slice the apple into medium sized pieces before adding to the blender.  Slice up the strawberries and measure before adding them in as well.

A "heaping cup" means that the top of the fruit will be slightly over and rounded in the measuring cup.  It is hard to get a level cup when using sliced fruit or chunks.

Place the frozen fruit and water into the blender first so that it is easier to chop up.

Makes four 8oz. servings.
