Avocados are very popular in salads and dips and are gaining ground as a smoothie ingredient too. For proof check out this avocado Kiwi smoothie recipe. As well as rich and creamy avocado this recipe includes other goodies like mixed berries.

It is easy to turn this avocado Kiwi smoothie into a super nutritious treat by adding in a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural powerhouse of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids. Even better, Chia has no taste of its own so adding it to the mix won’t change your results at all.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 Kiwi Fruit- peeled, pitted and halved
  • 1 Frozen banana, peeled and sliced (TIP: Peel and slice BEFORE FREEZING)
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seed


Everything goes into the blender at the same time and blend on high until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, thin it out with ice.

Kiwi-Grape Smoothie – Easy and Tasty

The kiwi is an interesting fruit. Nutritionally, it has more vitamin C than an equivalent orange and will cost you under 50 calories. Plus, it blends well, as this kiwi-grape smoothie recipe shows.

The other primary ingredient here are seedless grapes. Grapes aren’t as nutritionally potent as kiwi but a full cup (and that’s a LOT of grapes) is still under 125 calories. In this recipe I put my grapes in the freezer overnight for extra “cold” in the drink.

Blended together, a kiwi-grape smoothie is a low calorie, high nutrition treat.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • -1/2 cup of no calorie lemonade (Crystal light-has no calories)
  • -1/4 cup of soy milk
  • -2 fresh kiwis, peeled and cut in chunks
  • -1 cup of frozen seedless grapes

I’m pretty confident you are going to like this one a lot.

Refreshing — but sweet! You really have to give this Raspberry yogurt smoothie a try!

This doesn’t have much to do with the recipe but I think its an interesting use of fruit as a metaphor. On a recent television show a character used a fresh raspberry to make the case that nothing as perfectly designed and tasty could have happened by accident. Another, more skeptical, character responded that the raspberry ended up the way it is because the design ended up being the best one suited to efficiently spreading raspberry seeds.

In the end it doesn’t really matter how the Raspberry became what it is now. What it is important is that raspberries are really tasty and play very well in this smoothie recipe.

Optionally, you can add a tablespoon of chia seed to this mix to add a lot of nutritional goodies including heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Because Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own it isn’t going to change the results of the recipe.

In your favorite blender mix:


-2 kiwi, peeled and cut in chunks
-1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries
-1 cup of low-fat plain yogurt
-1/2 cup of low-fat milk
-1 Tbsp. Chia seed (optional)

Add all together and blend until smooth.
