Kiwi Green Smoothie

This smoothie is another installment in my series of recipes that are packed with nutrients but come together in 5 minutes for a quick breakfast on the go.

There are only 3 ingredients so it is easy to prepare. I am trying to get back into the habit of having a smoothie for breakfast every day instead of skipping the meal (which is what I have been doing during the week) or eating something that doesn’t fill me up and give me what I need to get through the morning.

Adding “greens” to a smoothie are something that I think most people hesitate about. This packs in the greens without the texture of the actual lettuce, so it is a good transition into the green smoothie for someone who is skeptical.

The biggest flavor in this smoothie is the kiwi. I used one whole, fresh kiwi. I diced it up and added to the blender with the other ingredients.

The liquid base is V8 juice that has several things in it. See below.
