About Kiwi Quencher Smoothie

Kiwi Quencher Tropical Smoothie is a refreshing drink made using five simple ingredients in under 5 minutes. It is popularly served at Tropical Smoothie Café, a cafe chain in the USA.

My homemade recipe for making this smoothie is very close to the one sold at the cafe, and you can make it at a fraction of the cost.

The smoothie has a creamy, frothy texture and a sweet, fruity, and sour taste. It is loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C and is perfect for a weight loss diet.

Seve this Tropical Smoothie Cafe Kiwi Quencher Smoothie for breakfast or a mid-day snack.

This copycat recipe is vegetarian and gluten-free and can be easily made vegan.

Ingredients

Kiwi quencher tropical smoothie ingredients

Strawberries and Kiwi – Use the best-quality organic fruits for the best-tasting and healthiest smoothie. Freezing the fruits will ensure that the smoothie turns out creamy.

I used green kiwis, but yellow or golden kiwis will work fine, too. Make sure to use ripe kiwis, which taste sweeter and more aromatic. The firm and unripe ones are too tangy and could be bitter sometimes.

I like to freeze strawberries when they are in season and use them all year round. For more information, check out my post on how to freeze strawberries.

Yogurt – I use regular full-fat plain yogurt, but you can also use Greek or low-fat yogurt.

To make the smoothie vegan, use vegan yogurt.

You can also use flavored yogurt, such as strawberry or vanilla, instead of plain yogurt.

Milk – I use whole milk (full-fat milk) to make this delicious smoothie recipe, as it makes it rich and creamy. However, you can use low-fat or skim milk to make it healthier.

For a vegan smoothie, use plant-based milk such as soy, coconut, almond, or oat milk.

Maple Syrup – You can 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 the following ingredients to a blender jar.

  • 2 cups (300 g, 10.5 oz) of frozen strawberries
  • 3 kiwis (peeled, cubed, and frozen)
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoon maple syrup

Note – Thaw the frozen fruits for 10 minutes if they are too hard to ease the blending process.

All the ingredients added to a blender.

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 if it is too thick, add more milk to thin it out.

Check for sweetness and add more maple syrup if needed.

Variations and Add-Ons

This tropical 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 mangoes, raspberries, pineapples, green apples, or peach chunks.

You can also add a large frozen banana to make the smoothie creamier.

Greens – Add baby spinach, kale, arugula, swiss chard, or beet greens.

Protein – For extra protein, Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder or whey protein if you are making it for your pre- or post-workout drink. You can add nut butter, such as almond or peanut butter.

Seeds – To increase your nutrient intake, Add seeds such as flax seeds, chia seeds, or hemp seeds.

Fruit Juices – Replace milk with fruit juices like orange, cranberry, or mango juice. Coconut water is also a nice addition.
