About This Recipe
Kiwi Quencher Tropical Smoothie is a refreshing drink made using 5 simple ingredients in under 5 minutes.
It is loaded with antioxidants, and vitamin c and is perfect for a weight loss diet.
Seve it for breakfast or as a mid-day snack.
Strawberries & Kiwi – Use the best quality organic fruits for the best tasting and healthy smoothie. Freezing the fruits will make sure the smoothie turns out creamy.
Yogurt – I use regular full-fat plain yogurt but you can use Greek yogurt or low-fat yogurt too.
To make the smoothie vegan, use vegan yogurt.
Milk – I use whole milk (full-fat milk) to make this recipe as it makes my smoothie rich and creamy but to make it healthier, you can use low-fat or skim milk too.
Use plant-based milk like soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk, etc for a vegan smoothie.
Maple Syrup – Sweeten the smoothie using maple syrup. You can choose to completely skip it or adjust the quantity depending on your taste.
You can also use honey (not vegan) or agave syrup instead.
How To Make Kiwi Quencher Tropical Smoothie
Add 2 cups (300 g) of frozen strawberries, 3 kiwis (peeled, cubed, and frozen), ½ cup plain yogurt, ½ cup whole milk, and 3 tablespoon maple syrup to the jar of a blender.
Note – Thaw the frozen fruits for 10 minutes if they are too hard to ease the blending process.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Adjust the texture if needed. If your smoothie is too thin, add more frozen strawberries to help thicken it and in case the texture is too thick, add some more milk to thin it out a bit.
Pour the smoothie into serving glasses. Garnish with strawberry and kiwi and serve immediately.
Variations and Add-Ons
This smoothie recipe is super versatile. You can add different ingredients and make a new version every time. I am sharing some options below.
Fruits – You can replace frozen strawberries with frozen mangoes, raspberries, pineapple, green apple, or peach chunks.
You can also add a large frozen banana to make the smoothie creamier.
Greens – Add greens such as baby spinach, kale, arugula, or beet greens.
Protein – Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder if you are making it for your pre or post-workout drink for extra protein.
Seeds – Add in some seeds such as flax seeds, chia seeds, or hemp seeds to up its nutrient game.
This smoothie tastes the best when served fresh.
Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for about a day in the refrigerator. Shake it well before using it.
