green smoothie goodness

One of my new year's resolution for 2012 is to continue to drink more water and eat more fruits and vegetables.  The reason is that, since 2010 up until around may 2011 I have been suffering from recurrent urinary tract infections.  Some people are more prone to them, and i guess i'm one of those unlucky ones...  They are so freaking painful that i literally cannot sleep for the whole night (yes they ALWAYS happen at night for some reason) and have to run to the bathroom and pee every 15 minutes with little success.  Fine I will try and not go into the details here, but u get my point.  But ever since I have been drinking green smoothies in the past six months or so, I have been UTI free *knock on wood* and most of the time i didn't even include cranberries in them ;D i try to drink them at least 4-5 times a week, right when i get up in the morning before eating anything else.  Different fruits are packed with different types of vitamins and antioxidants, so i guess i will be sharing a few of the recipes here as i experiment and find ones that are especially yummay ;9  So here is the recipe of the one that i made today- apple,kiwi and cucumber smoothie <3  This smoothie is especially great in helping to improve skin complexion and restore hydration for your body.  So ladies, all the good reasons to give this a try =)

The recipe makes for about 3 cups of smoothies:
  • 1 big apple (or 2 small ones)
  • 1 kiwi
  • 2 mini cucumbers
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • 1 cup of water
  • drizzle of honey (optional, depending on how sweet ur apple is lol
      then cut them up like a pro iron chef and throw it into your handy dandy blender
    Blend until desired consistency, and....

     ENJOY1 :9
    Literally takes no more than 3 minutes, easy, fast and refreshing for the morning. *sparkles*
