I am ready to get away to somewhere sunny and warm. My husband and I have been starting to look into where we want to go this summer as it has been a while since we have gotten away. My only requirements are a pool, an ocean, and a beach. The rest doesn't matter one bit to me. I just want to kick my heels up for a few days and take in some tropical sunshine.
I am pretty sure that having beaches on the brain inspired my latest smoothie. One sip of this will take you straight to the islands! Well, one can hope at least. It's been quite a while since I have had a kiwi and I am not really sure why exactly. At the grocery recently, they caught my eye and I grabbed a few.
Kiwi has a long list of benefits to our health. Such a small fruit, but it packs in the power. It helps improve digestion, detoxifies the body, and is a great immunity booster. Since it is a good source of Vitmamin E, it is will protect the skin and give it a healthy glow. Needless to say, we all could use a little more kiwi in our lives.
This Kiwi Pineapple Tropical Green Smoothie is so refreshing and since Summer is on its way, it's just what you need! My husband gave it the seal of approval and had no idea that there were greens in it. That is always a win for me! And if you are looking for a protein kick in your green smoothie, this Green Goddess Protein Smoothie is a winner as well!
