Green Citrus Smoothie

Here you have a green smoothie, without all the typical green smoothie ingredients. Yup, that's right, no spinach. You read that right. This smoothie contains just enough tart and just enough sweetness in every sip. Typically my smoothies usually end up being pink or purple because of some form of berries being added, but this one avoids that all together and really it's green so that's all the encouragement I need to make it. One suggestion, we keep all of our fruit at room temperature, so this smoothie ended up being pretty room temperature by the time we served it. If you aren't up for that, add a bit of ice into the mix before blending.

I found this recipe in a local grocery store's flyer but it can also be found on the Thrifty's website.

Makes: 3 - 1 Cup servings


4 Kiwi, peeled
1 Orange, peeled & chunked with pith removed
1 Banana, peeled and chunked
Zest of 1/2 Lime
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 1/2 C. Vanilla Yogurt (or plain)
1 Tbsp. Honey


~Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.
~Pour into glasses and serve.
