Kiwi’s Down Under

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.

The Green Turtle

The Green Turtle
by Gabriel Constans

This “totally green” drink is one of Kermit the Frog’s favorites. It is also well liked by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mr. Green Jeans, and the ’60s rock group, The Turtles. Soy milk is high in protein. Kelp is filled with iodine and, in small quantities, is reported to decrease negative thyroid conditions.
