Kiwi Banana Smoothie


Fruit based smoothies are an easy way to increase the consumption of fruits in our diet, and in turn nourish the body with essential nutrients. Unlike fruit juices, smoothies contain more vitamins, minerals and fiber, as we are adding the entire fruit. Making your own smoothies are easy too- you just need a blender, fruits and some milk or yogurt. 

Kiwi's are highly rich in antioxidants and a good source of vitamin C and dietary fiber. I have already shared a kiwi mango smoothie, and adapting from that I made a smoothie with kiwi, banana, handful of spinach leaves and used orange juice instead of apple juice. The smoothie was so delicious and perfect for the hot summer weather. Start your day with this nutritious and filling breakfast smoothie. Serve along with toast or sandwich to make a complete hearty breakfast.

  6. brilliant idea to add spinach leaves to a banana kiwi smoothie. This way you can taste the other fruits and not the spinach.
