I really love to use seasonal fruit as much as I can and feijoa season is one of the best seasons! I’m sure there are definitely less than 6 degrees of separation between you and someone who owns a feijoa tree that produces such an abundance of feijoas that their family couldn’t possibly eat all of the feijoas before they fall of the tree to rot (!!) meaning the person needs to gift supermarket bags bursting full of feijoas. No? Just me then?
Lean Green Feijoa Machine Smoothie
- 3 feijoas (peeled like a potato)
- 3 stalks of kale
- 1/4 cucumber
- Handful of spinach
- Handful of green seedless grapes
You know what’s great about this smoothie? It is fruit and vege with NO extras! All the liquid comes from the feijoas, cucumber and grapes with the kale and spinach help to thicken it up a bit, so you don’t need any milk, juice, yoghurt or even any water. Definitely a great smoothie to help you get your 5+ a day!
(I apologise for the excessive use of the word ‘feijoa’ in this post. But isn’t it just one of the coolest words?? Come on, say it with me… FEIJOA!)
