2 kiwi fruits
3/4 in root ginger, peeled and chopped.
Remove kiwi fruits skin. Chop the apple. Add all three together and blend.
The book calls for juicing, but I am all for the fiber and everything. I blended everything, including the apple seeds.
It was thick and smoothie-like. I had to use a spoon. The ginger gave it some spice.
Nutritional value: Vitamins A, B3 and C, potassium, sodium, pectin, tannin and malic acid.

Got over 120 recipes in this book (Smoothies and Juices edited by Clare Haworth-Maden) and I plan to make a drink every day.
Today: Pink Pineapple
Quarter of a pineapple
1 orange (a blood orange will add an even deeper color)
5 oz strawberries.
Put all in a blender and blend until smooth.
Some nutritional value: Vitamins A, B complex, B6, potassium.
I like this drink. Glad I started with something sweet.
Here's to 119 more!
