Traffic Light Smoothie
Recipe courtesy of ZESPRI™ Kiwifruit.
2 green kiwifruit
2 gold kiwifruit (or substitute mango or pineapple)
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup raspberries or strawberries
- Slice green kiwifruit into halves and spoon the fruit out into a food processor or blender with 1 to 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Process until just smooth, taking care not to crush the seeds. Pour into one or two long glasses.
- Slice the gold kiwifruit into halves (or chunk mango or pineapple) and spoon the fruit into a clean food processor or blender with 3 to 4 tablespoons of orange juice. Purée, until just smooth.
- Carefully pour the gold purée over the back of a spoon on top of the green purée to form two distinct layers.
- Purée the raspberries in a clean blender with 2 tablespoons of orange juice, until just smooth. Pour red purée over the back of a spoon on top of the gold purée to make the third layer. Serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings.
Note: If you feel this recipe needs more sweetening, a spoon full of honey can be added to any of the three fruit purées.
