  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey

  1. You will need to cut up the Kiwi into 4 to 6 slices, this makes it easier to blend the fruit. You should leave the skin on the kiwi seeing as how a lot of nutrients are kept in the skin of the fruit. Add those slices into a food processor or blender until mostly liquid.
  2. Add the yogurt, orange water, oil and the ground almonds into the food processor or blender. Blend for another good 2 to 3 minutes. You want all these ingredients to blend very smoothly to ensure the vitamins and nutrients mix together properly.
