Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie Recipe

This Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie Recipe yields a yummy, nutrient-dense drink that can be enjoyed at any time. Best of all, it’s versatile enough to be consumed as a breakfast bowl, protein shake (with the addition of protein powder), a refreshing drink, and so much more! 

Strawberry is a well-loved fruit. Altogether, it’s got the right amount of sweetness and tartness. And, it’s delightfully juicy and hydrating too!

The heart shape of the strawberry seems to be a hint that it’s for the heart. It increases good cholesterol and lowers blood pressure. It also promotes easy digestion and weight loss. And, it prevents diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.

But wait, there’s more! There’s still kiwi, which is another rich source of vitamin C and other helpful nutrients. It’s even lauded to have more concentration on immune-boosting and cold-healing compared to oranges. Hence, this can also be your alternative to citrus, especially during your “under-the-weather” days.

Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie

A fruity smoothie that’s very low in calories; yet, it features a good amount of vitamins and minerals. Plus, it also provides higher levels of polyphenols, a micronutrient that can improve or help treat diabetes, digestive, neurodegenerative, and cardiovascular diseases.
