The Blackberry Kiwi Smoothie Is a Superfood

This great tasting smoothie makes for a fantastic way to re-hydrate after exercise with coconut water for hydration, bananas for potassium, and a drink that, overall, is anti-inflammatory. Best of all, it can be made in your ordinary kitchen blender, so it doesn't need a special juicer or high powered blender.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 30 mint leaves
  • 1 comice or bartlett pear
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut water

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender and blend. Serve immediately.

      Thanks, Paul. The photo was taken with Instagram which I find very useful for food photography. The filters that it offers make the photo look more original and authentic than a regular snapshot. As you know photographing food is incredibly difficult, and I don't have an SLR camera...just an iPhone.

      I love the photo. It looks super tasty. I really like the idea of using coconut water in smoothies for hydration. Before hot yoga, I usually drink a zinco, but would prefer a homemade smoothie.
