Apple Kiwi Green Smoothies

Apple Kiwi Green Smoothies | A Teaspoon of Happiness
Spring is just around the corner. The snow around here is finally melting, and the sun has been shining like crazy, even though it’s still pretty cold. In no time, we will be shedding the warm layers of winter in favor of light jackets and maybe even t-shirt or two. After the winter I’ve endured this year – the bitter cold of Kazakhstan and the never-ending snow of our wonderful Frozen Tundra – I’m more than ready. That means it’s time to start eating light and getting in shape, and there’s no better way to do that than to eat fruits and vegetables.

Apple Kiwi Green Smoothies | A Teaspoon of Happiness

These apple kiwi green smoothies are the perfect light breakfast or afternoon snack. They’re packed with fruits, spinach and oatmeal, which means vitamins and fiber. I used prepared steal-cut oats (from Costco), but you could use leftover oatmeal or even substitute a Greek yogurt if you want. By using only green fruits and vegetables, I was able to keep the color truly green rather than the icky brown color you get from adding berries or other red fruit, but you could really use any fruit you want.

    Looks Delic! By “prepared steeled oats” do you mean cooked or soaked?

    Thx

      I’m sorry, but I don’t currently provide nutritional information for my recipes. I don’t trust the accuracy of online nutrition calculators, and I don’t want to provide my readers with wrong or misleading information.
