Green Smoothie With Kiwis
Kiwis make an excellent base for a green smoothie. They possess a mild flavor that won’t compete with other fruits and vegetables in your green smoothie. Additionally, kiwis offer a whole host of nutritional benefits. For example, did you know that kiwis are an excellent source of Vitamin C, as well as Vitamins A, B6, E, and K? The edible seeds of kiwis are packed full of healthy Omega 3 fatty acids.
When you include kiwis in your green smoothie, you will also be providing your body with a source of folate, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, and fiber. There are some medical studies that suggest eating 2-3 kiwis each day for 4 weeks can lower your body’s risk of developing blood clots and other types of blockage. Try adding kiwis to your next green smoothie and see what they can do for you!
