God, I love the winters.
Living in a city like Mumbai, where cotton clothes-sunglasses-sunscreen are the holy trinity for existence, experiencing winters is a pleasure!
Not only do I get to pull out sweaters from old forgotten suitcases, drinking hot coffee & chai by the gallon is perfectly acceptable. You aren’t scorned for carrying around a lip balm everywhere, socks can be worn throughout the day. Cozy is how this entire season makes us feel!
I will prefer not getting into the horrid tails of pulling yourself off the bed on cold winter mornings, but would rather focus on the fact (Something I haven’t been able to get over for the last few weeks) that the local markets are gorgeous. I see happy vegetables, be them bright red chillies or plump sweet potatoes, fresh turmeric or plump pristine white cauliflowers.
I spotted kiwis a few days ago and new I had to work it in the Spinach Smoothie Special!
What better way to have them, if not with strawberries (Also another gift of this blessed season!).
Introducing the antioxidant loaded Strawberry Kiwi Spinach Smoothie!

Getting to the kiwi is simple. Just half them. Let the hairy exterior reveal this breathtaking maize of green inside.
Take a spoon, and scoop the flesh out – like you would with a freshly boiled egg!
And as per usual, add it all up in the blender. Drizzle in the honey. Blitz.
Pour it out in the glass. Garnish with some fruit.
