I make one of these every morning with extra protein powder - except mine turn out more purplish looking, probably because I use lots of blueberries and strawberries.

Mine turned out purple, but it is really delicious. I wish the calories were lower, but wow, what a powerful breakfast!

So whats the benefit of keeping the skin on the kiwi and why use frozen instead of fresh? general interest...looks amazing though! :)

I made this using a vitamix using the ingredients listed. The yield was closer to 40 ounces instead of 24. Any reason?

Trying to stay away from dairy, I would prefer to use almond milk and a plant based vanilla flavored protein powder. Any you would recommend that would yield the same benefits if not better?
