Number two in this month's lineup of delicious and nutritious smoothies:
For the goddess of the harvest and of earth's fertility, here is a bright green smoothie that's rich, creamy, and packed with all sorts of goody-good-for-you goodness!
1 ripe kiwi
1/2 ripe avocado
1/2 bunch watercress (use leaves and tender stems)
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
dash almond/soy/coconut milk
Blend all ingredients until smooth. The avocado gives this one a delightful thickness, but feel free to add more milk if you prefer a thinner consistency. And that watercress blends up nicely--you'll still notice its interesting peppery taste amidst all the other flavors.
This sure would make a fun snack for St. Patrick's Day--and that's no blarney!
