Kiwi’s Down Under
by Gabriel Constans
The raspberry hits you strongly at first, then a nice aftertaste of kiwi and almond kicks in to finish it off. Kiwis, identified worldwide with New Zealand, are high in vitamin C. They help maintain healthy gums and teeth, as well as aid in digestion.
These New Zealand rugby players just drank a pitcher of Kiwi’s Down Under.
Yield: 4 cups
2 ripe kiwis, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 ripe banana
1 cup raspberry juice
1 tablespoon almond butter
Place all the ingredients in a blender, and mix on medium speed for 30 seconds.
Pour into tall glasses, drink up and head for the nearest rugby field.
