Kiwi Smoothie from Weelicious

Mothers teach us SO many things — some would argue everything. For me, childhood trips to the grocery and learning about the general nutritional and health benefits of fruits, vegetables and other foods definitely came from my mother — so did my ability to always find the best bargains (see Mom, everything). I remember the first time my mother held up this brown, fuzzy piece of fruit to me and told me how special it was. That was probably 30 years ago, when kiwis were harder to find, and today I truly realize how lucky we are to have gorgeous, reasonably priced kiwis readily at our disposal.

We came up with this recipe for a contest we've entered with Zespri Kiwifruit. Kenya and I are HUGE kiwi fans not only because of their bright green color and yummy taste, but because they're also packed with vitamin C and E, potassium and folic acid. So when we heard about this contest, we knew we had to do something!

So today, in honor of my mother's birthday and her favorite fruit, we're making up a huge batch of these refreshing kiwi smoothies. Cheers!

    I've never made smoothies before, this will be my first. I have a bunch of strawberries and kiwis and was wondering how many strawberries would I substitute for the one banana?

      The banana is what gives the smoothies its thick and creamy texture. You can put in about 4 large strawberries or 5-6 small strawberries in your smoothie. It will be a little watery but I'm sure it will be delish!!

    Tasted a bit bitter...maybe the seeds?

      Did you use cow's milk? Acidic fruits, like kiwi, can cause a strange reaction to happen and sometimes turns out with a slightly bitter taste. If you use a milk alternative for this recipe that won't happen!

    So I retried with rice milk and she loved it just like everything else off this it! The rice milk didn't make it bitter...was wondering if I can save leftover in fridge for tomorrow?

      Yes, I think one day in the fridge would be okay!

      Yes, you can use any size banana you have on hand! Add more or less than the recipe calls for depending on your tastes!

    Can I make this using formula or breastmilk in place of the milk listed? Baby is 8 monts.

    Can I freeze the smoothie and use later or is it best fresh?

      You can freeze for up to 3 months! Fresh is always best, though!
