Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

Theme : So many smoothies, so little time
Dish: Kiwi Strawberry smoothie bowl
There is a farmer’s market nearby our place where you get really good fruits and vegetables at really reasonable prices. I don’t go there often, but whenever I go, I always pick up kiwis from there. And pears. And oranges. And apples. Grapes too. Strawberries are a given. Oh well…you get the picture.

My fridge would be overflowing for many days after my trip. My son, who is fine with fruits in general, is not a fan of kiwi or pears. Now, kiwis are sold a dollar for 5 pieces at that place. How can I resist buying it?! So I buy a big bunch of it and then make smoothies to erase the evidence of the forbidden fruits. I have always felt that pear lends a wonderful flavor to smoothies. I am a fan of fruits, so I might be biased.

So here is what went into the smoothie today, kiwis, pears, strawberries and bananas. I spared the apples and oranges and grapes this time. Read on for the recipe, which is more of a guide than a fixed recipe.
