Smoothies belong in everyone’s meal plans because they are so ridiculously health and are the perfect way to add fruit to your meals.
Here is a Kiwi smoothie recipe that also includes Lime. Both fruits are healthy in their own right and, together, they bring a lot of extra nutrition in a refreshing and tasty treat.
As nutritious as this kiwi smoothie recipe is already, it can be made even more so just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. 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. You can order Chia seed directly from Amazon just by clicking the link in the recipe.
In your favorite blender mix:
-Juice of 1 lime (fresh or concentrate, but fresh does add wonderful pulp that adds texture to your smoothie) (1/4 cup of lime juice is about 15 calories)
-2-3 kiwi fruit, cut in chunks (some people like the skin, others remove it) Add as many as you like depending on the size. If I am making this smoothie for a desert I will usually use 3 kiwis so it is a bit thicker (each kiwi is about 25 calories).
-1 container of Dannon Light and Fit Key Lime Yogurt (only 80 calories)
-1 tbsp. Chia seed
-Ice to Taste
