Summer is still a while away but hearing about the warm summer my friends are having everywhere else gave me inspiration to make some delicious, cooling beverages!
I initially wanted to do a berry smoothie, but with not much luck finding fresh summer berries in this winter climate, I came up with a better idea - kiwifruit and mango. With kiwifruit being a native fruit in New Zealand, the land of the long white cloud and mangos being......well......easy to import, i was set!
You will notice I used two types of kiwifruit here - the traditional green and the golden. I think golden kiwifruit is available in most countries now, it is less tangy and is sweeter which is great for adding flavour without the intense tanginess of the green.
Kiwifruit and Mango Smoothie
Approx 100g golden kiwifruit
Approx 100g green kiwifruit
2 Tbs honey
1. Dice up the kiwifruit and mango.
This smoothie was so easy and quick to make, it's great for parties or a dose of fruit for little ones. It's pretty healthy too compared to the syrups and artificial flavourings in the juice bars so save a few $$ and do it at home! It was so yummy I craved for one the next day. Enjoy!
