Honestly, there isn’t a lot of culinary justification for a Banana Kiwi Citrus smoothie other than the smoothie format makes a combination like this not only possible but also very tasty and healthy!
– 1 previously frozen banana, peeled and sliced (TIP: peel and slice before freezing!)
– 2 kiwis, peeled and cut in chunks
– 1 cup of cold orange juice with pulp (or without if you prefer, just no concentrate please)
– 1/4 cup of lemon juice with pulp (or, again, without if you prefer)
– 1 Tbsp. Honey
– 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
– 1 Tbsp. Chia Seed
Why Chia? Because it turns this smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
