Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS – Smoothies are delightfully healthy foods when done right. When you purchase them at an overpriced smoothie shop, they’re often full of low-quality ingredients and a lot of added sugar, but why bother buying these drinks when you can make your own? Take my homemade strawberry kiwi smoothie recipe, for example.

Trust me — this recipe is quick and easy to whip up, and it’s loaded with beneficial ingredients sure to up your nutrient intake while satisfying that sweet tooth.

Key Ingredients

This delicious and refreshing strawberry kiwi smoothie is one of my favorites.

Thanks to the kiwi, it’s chock-full of vitamin C. If you thought oranges were good, wait until you try kiwis: These fuzzy little fruits have 275 percent of your daily recommended allowance of the nutrient.

That’s not all. Kiwi nutrition provides vitamins K and E, along with potassium, copper and folate. As such, this fruit can help counteract signs of aging and support skin, eye, digestive, cardiovascular, bone, immune and respiratory health.

When you combine kiwis with nutrition-rich strawberries, which are packed with antioxidants, along with some banana and raw yogurt, you get an easy-to-make, fruity smoothie you can enjoy as a yummy breakfast, post-workout snack or just an after-dinner treat.

Strawberry nutrition is high vitamins C, K and B6. It also provides a good amount of minerals, including manganese, folate, potassium, magnesium and more. Strawberries have been shown to help protect against cancer, heart disease, skin damage, cognitive decline and digestive issues.

The final fruit star in this strawberry banana kiwi smoothie is, of course, banana. Banana nutrition is, of course, loaded in potassium, along with several other essential nutrients.

That’s why bananas can help boost energy, improve digestion, enhance mood, and support heart and kidney health.

How to Make a Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie

Add all the ingredients to the blender. You can use fresh ingredients if you can find them, but the good thing about this strawberry kiwi smoothie is that it works equally well with frozen ingredients for those cooler months.
