Raspberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe
In an effort to incorporate the never present Kiwi into our Once A Month Mom menu plans, I devised a smoothie worthy of our cooking day. Thanks to the inspiration of an organic smoothie from Lunch Box Bunch I was inspired. And boy was I pleased.
I am not vegan, nor ever plan to be, but I figured I could take her idea an un-organic-ize it and we would be set. Turns out I was right! I whipped this smoothie up one afternoon when I had a play date and was so pleasantly surprised. I am not really much of a smoothie person but I loved this smoothie. In fact, hours later I was craving another one. And what is wrong with that? It is filled with tons of great fruit which means it is a nutritious drink, snack or breakfast treat.
Note: When I made this the first time I replaced the milk with equal parts of juice because my guest was dairy free. It tasted just as good, if not better than the original recipe. I made it both ways and liked them both!
