pretty in pink green smoothie

this is a tasty watermelon and kiwi green smoothie with a bit of ginger zing. i added the greens to it after the picture because it turns a murky brown colour. honestly, i didn't want to call it 'murky brown green smoothie' - how appetizing is that? :)

  • 1/4 of a seedless watermelon
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) of fresh ginger
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 or 4 ice cubes
peel the watermelon, kiwi and ginger and cut up into cubes. drop in the blender with water and ice. you need less water than with most green smoothies because watermelon is so juicy. after it starts to smoothie-ize in your blender, add the greens and blend again. :) makes about a quart of filling smoothie.
