Kiwi, Lime and Coconut SmoothieMarch 18, 2014
I am no angel when it come to my diet. And you know what? I am totally ok with that. Some times I eat really naughty, indulgent food, sometimes I eat complete rubbish- and yes, I might like to cook but I also like to take out.
I think that the rule of everything in moderation is really a rule to live by. Fast food, skipping meals or cereal for dinner are not the end of the world, they aren't ideal but theres no need to beat yourself up about it. Just make some better choices in the coming days, take the stairs and chug down some extra water.
Life is about balance, in more ways than one, and having had a pretty hectic week last week, a taco or two and a 2am pizza delivery this is what i'll be supping on in the mornings this week.
Ingredients: This makes one large smoothie
2 kiwi fruit
2 tsps fresh squeezed lime juice
1 cup coconut water
It's simplicity in preparation doesn't do it's fresh zingy taste justice. I don't like bananas or yoghurt in smoothies- I rather a thick, fresh juice consistency which is what the kiwi provides. The fresh lime add both it's vitamin C credentials as well as the uplifting aroma and the coconut is the carrier for the vibrant green pulp, not too sweet but also canceling out any tart notes in the kiwi.
