Some mornings call for eggs and bacon and some mornings call for a really good smoothie. I try to change up breakfast throughout the week. First of all so I don’t get bored, but secondly to change up the nutrition my body is receiving. Today’s recipe came about when I had a pile of ripe kiwis sitting on my counter top. In order to save them, I cut them up and tossed them in the freezer. The next day I grabbed a lime and an avocado and boom, the Kiwi Lime Smoothie was born.
I love smoothies on the mornings that I might be running a little late for work or when I am headed to yoga class within an hour or two. They blend up so quickly and fill me up for the morning without weighing me down. The key ingredients for keeping me satiated are good fats from avocados or coconut and protein from hydrolyzed collagen. In this recipe, the avocado and collagen also lend a nice creaminess to the smoothie.
This Kiwi Lime Smoothie is a little tart from the blend of kiwi and lime, but it’s balanced with just enough sweetness from the coconut water. Even if you are not a fan of coconut water, trust me you will not taste it in this smoothie.
Just the sight of this smoothie makes me happy. The color, the tropical scents, and the flavors make me think of a warm summer day on the beach!
Before we get to the recipe, I want to let you guys know a little more about my favorite brand of Hydrolyzed Collagen. I’ve been using the Perfect Supplements brand for awhile now and love it! It is absolutely flavorless, has no smell, and mixes into both cold and hot liquids beautifully. I love that it is produced from grass-fed cows (to learn more about this product and why so many people are adding it to their diets, click here). Even better is the price! Perfect Supplements has a bulk buying program, so if you order three or more of their products (you can mix and match) you can get between 25-35% off the total price. PLUS, I have a coupon code for you to get an additional 10% off! Just enter SOGOOD10 at checkout.
- Place all of the above ingredients into your blender and process until smooth.
- Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!
