Golden Kiwi Green Smoothie Recipe

My girlfriend, Delilah, turned me on to making green or veggie smoothies and consuming them throughout the day as a way of increasing my daily dosage of fresh fruits and vegetables. I loved the idea! I’m not a big fan of getting my daily dosage of vegetables in a pill, that’s just not appealing to me, so this is the next best option. I tried to pull out my blender which I have stored away only to find out that my boyfriend had broken the motor. Alright, time to invest in the NutriBullet, it’s got a more powerful motor than most blenders in the same price range and I can make just the right amount of smoothie.

We purchased our NutriBullet from Costco and I had my first homemade green smoothie that same day. I loved it!

Here’s my signature Golden Kiwi Green Smoothie, pulled from my grocery list at Costco that day.

Preparation Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 2 golden kiwis or regular, peeled and sliced (I prefer Golden Kiwis otherwise known as Zespris as they are a little sweeter than regular kiwis)
  • 1 orange, peeled and sliced (I used the minneola tangerine)
  • 1 cup spinach, kale and chard
  • 1/4 cup crushed ice
  • Orange Juice or Açaí Juice (Fill to the max line of your NutriBullet).

Directions
Place all the ingredients in your Nutribullet and process for 15 seconds or until smooth and well blended. I like a little bit of pulp so I tend to just process for around 2 intervals of 5-10 seconds. I’m very afraid of burning out the motor!

Serve immediately.

You may serve your green smoothie in a magarita glass or drink it directly from your NutriBullet.

Tip
Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds for more fibers and a bit of texture.

Variation For a creamier texture, add 1 banana or 1 avocado in replacement of the 1 orange

Enjoy and let me know which version you prefer!
