Cold-busting kiwi spinach lime smoothie, a delicious drink loaded with all the nature’s goodness. It’s got all the vitamins and minerals you can think of, plus it’s diary free, making it suitable for vegans too. This is really a magic drink!
November doesn’t only bring us closer to the Christmas fever, but also to all sorts of nasty viruses that are determined to chain us to bed. The cold and flu season is now officially open! ? So, what’s to be done? Well, better to prevent than treat, right? Eat well, keep hydrated ( even if it’s not hot outside) and eat plenty of seasonal fruit and vegetables.
I love kiwi, and they taste so much better in the cold season. I do prefer buying ripe kiwi, rather than the cheaper ripen at home stuff that can take ages to get to the juicy and sweet stage l want. And luckily, supermarkets always have fresh spinach in stock, so that should be easy to find. I know that some people either love or hate spinach, but trust me, you can’t even tell there’s spinach in this smoothie. Now, you can, of course add milk to it if you choose, or the dairy-free alternatives, be it soya, coconut or almond milk, but l really like just adding juice. I opted for orange juice, but anything else is absolutely fine. And please, don’t spoil such a dream smoothie by adding sugar, that’s the biggest no-no from me!#
