This is a wonderfully refreshing drink. It has a strong lime flavor and is not very sweet, so it tastes incredibly healthy.
This morning I made a fabulous smoothie. It was born due to some ingredients that needed to be used up rather than any grand inspiration, but it tasted great!
One thing to keep in mind is that smoothies don’t have to always follow a more traditional “sweet fruit/greens/banana or avo base/maybe some spice” type of recipe – they are really wonderful using non-sweet fruit and herbs as well.
Today’s smoothie had:
- 2 pears
- 2 kiwi fruit
- 1 persian cucumber
- small handful of parsley
- 1 slice of lime (including the rind)
- 1/2″ piece of fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon pistachio butter (or any nut butter would work)
Add enough water to blend to the desired consistency, and enjoy! This is a very light and refreshing smoothie.
Kiwi fruit have tons of vitamin C (always good at this time of year) and cucumbers are incredibly hydrating (also good for us!). The pistachio butter adds a bit of good fat, and the lime and ginger give it a nice zing to start your morning.
