I fully endorse this Apple Kiwi Smoothie from Life Made Delicious. Three fruits plus low-fat yogurt make a tasty, energy-boosting drink for busy mornings, or any other time you need a quick pick-me-up (pretty much all day, every day).
You likely already have all the ingredients on hand (except maybe kiwis – they’re not usually a staple in my home). This smoothie makes a wonderful accompaniment to granola, pancakes or another Mother’s Day breakfast idea (hint hint).
I’d write more, but honestly – I’m off to make this smoothie now.
1 small apple, peeled, cut into chunks
1 kiwifruit, peeled, cut into chunks
4 medium fresh strawberries
2/3 cup (150 mL) low fat strawberry yogurt
1/3 cup (75 mL) apple juice
(I also like to throw in a small handful of crushed ice to make the smoothie super cold and refreshing.)
In blender, place ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed about 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses. Serve immediately. (Easy, right? Even hubby can do this. Translation: there’s no reason this drink shouldn’t appear on your breakfast-in-bed tray this coming Sunday.)

Yum! I LOVE smoothies and will definitely try this one!
It’s so good!
Looks so good! Apple kiwi is a great combination!
I spent a lot of my life disliking kiwis, but they’re so delicious!
If you don’t like using ice in smoothies but like them extra cold (like I do) try using some frozen fruit which gives the coldness of ice without watering things down as much.
That’s a great tip, thanks Miranda!

I love smoothies and your recipe sounds delicious. I love my smoothie to taste like berries because raspberries and strawberries are my favorite but I like all different kinds of smoothies other favorites are peach or pineapple.
