Do not buy bottled juice from stores as they have sugar, artificial coloring, and preservatives that are harmful to the body. Moreover, they have very little fruit in them. Follow my simple recipe to make a healthy smoothie using fresh kiwi and spinach from the local market.
In this recipe, we are adding kiwis, spinach, half banana, chia seeds, orange juice, and lime juice. As we are not using dairy, vegans can enjoy this smoothie. It is a magic green drink loaded with vitamins and minerals.
Both kids and adults will enjoy this healthy smoothie. Kids will not taste the spinach in the smoothie. If you have fussy eaters at home, make a green smoothie. It is the best way to ensure that they are eating green fruits and vegetables.
Leafy greens protect your body in the flu season. They prevent you from viral infections and diseases. To make a delicious kiwi spinach smoothie, you should buy ripe kiwis and fresh spinach. The health benefits of kiwi and spinach blend to form a powerful drink.
Kiwi is a perfect fruit for the cold season as it boosts immunity. The green flesh of kiwis is tangy and sweet. They are a wonderful source of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K. They are rich in folate, potassium, and antioxidants.
This smoothie contains chia seeds as they are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids. They have a high fiber and protein content. Instead of chia seeds, you can opt for flax seeds.
You can customize the recipe by adding milk to it. I’m using orange juice to make it a healthy green drink. Do not add sugar as it will spoil the health benefits of the smoothie. You can add a tablespoon of honey if you prefer sweet smoothies.
