Tired? Half-asleep? Keep reading and try the recipe that follows.

Here is a refreshing smoothie that is made using a combination of store cupboard tinned fruit and fresh fruit. It is free from added sugar, thickener or anything else, just pure fruit and water. The sweetness of the smoothie will depend upon the sweetness of the fruit and so if you’d like a sharper smoothie use a green rather than red apple. Also, using an unripe green kiwi rather than a golden one will give a sharper result. I prefer just a hint of sharpness so tend to just stick with the broken grapefruit for that.

It is entirely up to your personal preference, though. Have a go at experimenting with different combinations and find your favourite! It’s fun coming up with various tasting ones.

Good Morning Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 golden kiwi
  • 2 slices of pineapple (I used unsweetened tinned pineapple as I didn’t have fresh)
  • 1 tbsp of broken grapefruit (tinned)
  • Water

Method:

1. Peel, core, and cut apple into chunks.

2. Scoop flesh out of kiwi.

3. Add the fruit into a blender with a little water and blend.

4. Add more water to thin if desired.

NOTE: I use golden kiwis as they tend to be much sweeter than green kiwis. They are easier to get hold of in the summer rather than winter, so if making in the winter then you can substitute a green kiwi for the golden one.

This is the 4th smoothie recipe from a series of posts I’ve been doing since last week. For the earlier recipes see:
