Yard work is now done, for the day at least, and I decided it was a good time to treat myself to a refreshing smoothie. I bought a couple kiwi fruit yesterday, so the decision was easy:
A Kiwi Smoothie.

- 2 very ripe Kiwi, peeled and chopped

Add all the ingredients to your smoothie blender and blend on low power til smooth. Serve immediately, and enjoy!

Kiwi Fruit Health Benefits:
Kiwi Fruits are are rich in antioxidant Vitamins C, A and E , flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain more Vitamin C than oranges, as much potassium as bananas, and a good amount of beta-carotene. They have a high content of dietary fiber. High fiber helps improve diseases such as diabetes, by controlling sugar levels, and colon cancer, since fiber binds to toxic compounds in the colon and helps to expel them. All in all, a tasty and healthy fruit! (Check out more of my healthy Smoothie Recipes here.)
As promised in my last post, here is today's flower to enjoy. The first Day Lily bloom! - Fortunately I took this photo before the deer sneak attack. Now, who knows how long it will be before I get new blooms.
