Kiwi to the Rescue!

King of Kiwi, that is!

Glenn was on a quest — a quest to create a healthy, convenient, and shelf-stable drink. He loves juices, but the sugar level is high. He also hates the sugar spike that goes with drinking fruit juices, which always ends with a crash.

He didn’t have to look far, since he is from New Zealand, and Kiwi Fruit is abundant and delicious. Kiwi is a unique little fruit, with more vitamin C than oranges, more potassium than bananas, and more vitamin E than an avocado. It also has a healthy dose of pre-biotics and fiber. This combination has a sustained energy release over a number of hours rather than the sugar spike of standard fruit juices.
Did you know there is a yellow variety of Kiwi?

So Glenn experimented with the Kiwi Fruit, and found a way to blend four Kiwi Fruits (peeled and pureed), with a little pear juice, into a terrific 7.4 oz drink. It has 100% of the Daily Recommended Dose of Vitamin C, and 15% of the fiber. The Green Kiwi Drink, Digestive, is packed with fiber and probiotics for digestion.
The Yellow Kiwi Drink, Reviver, is perfect for a mid-day pick-me-up without the sugar spike and crash.
