Each Friday (for as long as I can keep it going), I'm going to post a recipe for a new Paleo smoothie creation.
Today is "Kiwi Green."
1/4 of an avocado
1 small banana
1 orange, peeled
1 kiwi, peeled
2T flaxseed meal
1 scoop egg white protein powder
1C raw spinach
Blend on high for 1 minute in your blender.
A couple of notes:
- If you do an sort of cooking, are following a Paleo nutrition plan, like to make smoothies, soups or blended cocktails, do yourself a favor and go buy a Vitamix! I can't tell you how many cheap blenders I've burned up over the years, and you probably have done the same. Add them up and you could have bought a Vitamix! They are a little pricey, but worth every penny AND MORE. I wish I had discovered them years ago. Use a Vitamix and say goodbye to chunky, unpleasant smoothies.
- Do you peel your kiwi when you eat it? I have a friend who eats hers skin and all. I can't seem to wrap my head around that, but if there's a benefit, I'll do it. After all, I will throw flaxseed, nuts and other fibrous stuff in a smoothie, but kiwi skin?
