Avocado and Kiwi Fruit Smoothie! ♡

From 'The Food Doctor' by Ian Marber and Vicki Edgson :) This looks super good and super yum, like a fucking elixiar of instant health just mulshed all into a glass and sucked up through a straw. I have yet to try it but I'm gonna give it a go! 

~ 4 kiwi fruit
~ 1 avocado
~ juice of ½ lime
~ 300ml (½ pint) rice or soya milk
~ 60ml (20floz) coconut milk, plus extra to swirl on top
~ 4 ice cubes

This wake-up drink is packed full of immune-boosting nutrients. Avocados are rich in vitamin E, which protects cells against the harmful effects of toxins and helps vitamin C work more efficiently. Kiwi fruit and lime juice are rich in vitamin C, the top nutrient for immune protection; and coconut milk is rich in lauric acid, believed to have antiviral properties. All in all, a great way to start the day. 

Peel the kiwi fruit and place in a blender. Peel and de-stone the avocado and add to the blender with all the other ingredients. Blend on a high speed until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve with a swirl of added coconut milk if desired.
