Health Kick


I wanted to buy a handmixer for years, but knowing how often I use some of my fancier kitchen appliances (like my ice cream maker) I was not sure if it would be a sound investment. The other day the model I've been eyeing went on sale in the supermarket so I decided to give it a try and... IT ROCKED MY WORLD! Ever since I got it, I'm drinking a fruit smoothie a day and I do different, delicious combinations each time. My vitamin levels have sure increased and these smoothies have become new staples in my diet! What's your favorite smoothie combo? I'm on the hunt for new flavors to try! ;)

YUMMO!!! Great combination of delicious ingredients!

I want to try your combo, it looks great! I usually do a large leaf of kale (which is SUPER vitamin-enriched), berries, almond milk, and occasionally a banana (I like to freeze banana halves so 1. they last longer 2. makes the smoothie colder).

oh yum! For some (strange?) reason I've never thought of doing a banana and kiwi smoothie. In fact, I've never done a kiwi smoothie period. I think I'll head to wholefoods now!

Oh man, that sounds like some serious YUM. I've never tried kiwi in a smoothie but it sounds good . I'm a smoothie fan myself, and I've recently been adding walnuts to mine, which gives both a nice texture and flavor as well as protein. I wrote a recipe here if you want to see:

I've been drinking a lot of green smoothies lately - a few handfuls of spinach, 1-2 bananas, a peach, and some fresh ginger. SO delicious and they make you feel so energised and clear-headed in the morning!

a handmixer, huh? I'll have to look in to one of those. May make my smoothie mornings a little easier than the blender.
