Carrot and Kiwifruit Smoothie

A delicious combination – the sharpness of the kiwifruit helps to cut through the sweetness of the carrot juice. Carrots are a good source of beta-carotene, the plant form of vitamin A, which is crucial for good vision, especially at night This juice is therefore ideal for athletes who train or compete in low light conditions.

1 kiwifruit
