Today’s smoothie features melon, kiwis and the often overlooked wheat germ. I often use the more popular flax, chia or sprouted things. But, back in the corner of my fridge sets the underappreciated wheat germ. I used to always throw a scoop into my oatmeal or any baked goods that I made. Neat way to slip in more fiber. Then, I started grinding my own grains and forgot about the jar of wheat germ. After I apologized to it, I promised to use it more often. Like in smoothies! And, here’s one of those.
Your list of ingredients- 2 cups of melon chunks, 2 kiwis, 3/4 cup of greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of wheat germ, the juice of half a lime and 1 cup of ice.
Peel and chop the kiwi and measure out the rest of the ingredients.
Starting with the ice, add it all to the blender and squeeze the lime juice in.
Next, close it up and hit the power button. Blend until it reaches your desired smoothness.
Pour it out into a pretty glass and enjoy. I got these at my local thrift store for cheap! I love them. Anyway, this kiwi melon smoothie is a great source of vitamins A, K, Folate and Manganese, plus all the magic that the wheat germ brings!
