So many of you have sent me pictures of my Green Monster Smoothie Recipe (with spinach and blueberries) that I wanted to create a more ‘subtly green’ smoothie recipe for the summer – with Kiwis & Kale! I love smoothies as they are a great way of getting your ‘5 a day’ – they also contain the whole of the fruit which means that they have more fibre than fruit or vegetable juices.
This smoothie recipe combines fruit, green veg (you can’t taste it, I promise!) and milk (I’ve used almond milk and KoKo dairy free so far), and it can be thickened with either chia seeds or oat flour. It tastes amazing and it’s the perfect morning or afternoon pick me up. Without the chia seeds/oat flour this smoothie is just 182 Kcal -see right for the full nutrition stats with the chia seeds (smoothie made with 1 kiwi, not 2).[ingredients]
*Samples of the chia seeds were supplied to me free of charge. I was not influenced in any way by the free samples supplied and do not promote this product more that other products that I have not reviewed. This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclaimer page for more information.
