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 the full nutrition stats with the chia seeds (smoothie made with 1 kiwi, not 2).
Kiwi & Strawberry Smoothie
- 1-2 kiwi fruits
- 5 medium strawberries
- 1/2 frozen banana
- small handful of kale
- 200ml almond milk/alternative milk
- Optional: 1 tbsp chia seeds or oat flour
- Remove the skin from the kiwi(s) and chop the tops of the strawberries before adding them to your blender along with the kale, milk, banana and optional ingredients.
