Kiwi Smoothie

Mothers teach us SO many things — some would argue everything. For me, childhood trips to the grocery and learning about the general nutritional and health benefits of fruits, vegetables and other foods definitely came from my mother — so did my ability to always find the best bargains (see,. Mom, everything!) I remember the first time my mother held up this brown, fuzzy piece of fruit to me and told me how special it was. That was probably 30 years ago, when kiwis were harder to find and, today, I truly realize how lucky we are to have gorgeous, reasonably-priced kiwis readily at our disposal.

I am a HUGE kiwi fan not only because of their bright green color and yummy taste, but because they’re also packed with vitamin C and E, potassium and folic acid.

So today, in honor of my mother’s birthday and her favorite fruit, we’re making up a huge batch of these refreshing kiwi smoothies. Cheers!
