Kiwi Smoothies use the Kiwi Fruit (not the bird!) as the basis for the mixture. The fruit has quite a subtle taste so it is easily overpowered.
Personally, I like the addition of lime and lime zest. Kiwi and Lime are my favorite pick in the ‘subtle fruit flavors’ category. Get a nice ripe Kiwi fruit and try one of our Kiwi Smoothies.
Kiwi Smoothies and Health
The green Kiwifruit is actually brown on the outside, and although the skin is edible it is so rough and ‘furry’ that few would want to!
The inside flesh is green with very small black seeds. It is normally eaten raw after peeling and slicing. There is a gold colored inside flesh variety but most of North America and Europe see the green fleshed variety.
Two medium Kiwifruits represent about 90 calories, virtually no fat, no cholesterol and no sodium. The fruit is high in Potassium and Vitamin C and has about 4 grams of dietary fiber…per two kiwifruits.
