While I was scheduling the posts for the Blogging Marathon #81 under the theme “Apple Desserts”, I was confused if a smoothie would come into its limit. An email to Valli and I got a very reassuring response – “If you crave for dessert but you are lazy to really cook up one, then a smoothie should do, right?” 😀
Recently, I bought a Russell Hobbs juice blender. I have been eyeing the Nutri Bullet but it was way above my budget and I was skeptical while I picked this up. I love juicing and at any time, my cravings are mostly subsided by one easy blitz. That explains why I have many many ideas of cold drinks loaded on the blog! Many say that juicing is not a good way of having your fruits but I don’t seem to agree to it. Off late, what all used to be good turned bad and what all was bad has turned good. So I am nobody to comment about it.
Anyway, this smoothie happened when I had to finish off some kiwi in the fridge which nobody wanted to eat, including myself, since it was too sour. I don’t like to throw away my fruits, so I ended up blitzing it with an apple. What a smoothie it was! I loved how the tiny seeds of the kiwi gave it a nice bite and the sourness of the kiwi was masked by the apple. 😀 It reminded me of the Banana Kiwi Smoothie I made sometime back. Off to the recipe…
- 1 apple, cored and chopped
- 1 kiwi, cored and chopped
- ⅓ cup milk (diary, soy or almond)
- ½ cup cold water
- A dash of vanilla essence
- Add all ingredients into the blender and blitz till smooth.
- Serve immediately.
