I don’t know about you all but during the winter and especially January I find getting in my fresh produce to be a challenge. That’s why I have decided to do a fruit of the month post each month this year. The goal of these articles will be to give you a new fruit that is in season to try each month and let you in on all the amazing benefits of each fruit. I also plan on adding in a recipe with the fruit as well. The January fruit of the month is Kiwi fruit!

1 scoop Ideal lean French Vanilla Protein

1 Kiwi Fruit

1 Banana (frozen)

3/4 cup light almond milk

1 cup baby spinach


Place all in blender and blend until smooth!

I recommend doing at least a frozen banana to help with chilliness as well as thickness. You can always use a fresh banana though and add in some ice.
