Strawberry and kiwi, two of my favorite fruits that remind me of summer, combined together to make a smoothie that is sure to make you feel like the sun is beating down on you.

Berries add sweetness to a smoothie as well as vitamin C, fiber and many antioxidants that protect your health.

For your strawberry kiwi smoothie, make sure you use kiwis that are really ripe — it should give when you press the sides.

Kiwi-Strawberry Smoothie Recipe

Many kiwi smoothie recipes available both online and in recipe books call for dairy, such as yogurt or cream. One way to make a non-dairy version, is by simply adding banana, and maybe some sweetener and/or non-dairy milk or yogurt. (If you are wondering why I’m against adding dairy to smoothies, read this post and this post). Adding a cup of orange juice to the blend will do the job too.

So, here are a few kiwi smoothie recipes for you. They contain no dairy, and are deliciously green, not just because of kiwi, but also because they contain GREENS.

According to the he Harvard School of Public Health we need at least nine servings, or four cups, of fruits and vegetables daily. How many did you have today?

How do I choose a kiwi?

Select fruit that is plump and fragrant with no visible bruising and a slightly firm feel. Unripe kiwi fruits ripen faster when stored in a paper or plastic bag with a ripe banana.

Once they are ripened, store them away from other fruit or they will decompose more quickly! Ripe kiwi can last in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.

Can I eat the skin?

You can, but buy organic and/or wash carefully to remove unwanted pesticides! Even though kiwis rank low in potential pesticide residue (13 out of 100) according to study conducted by the Environmental Working Group. Also, rub it a bit to minimize the fuzz. The skin will provide more fiber to your sweet snack.

If you’re not fond of the fuzzy exterior, simply “scoop” it out by slicing the kiwi in half horizontally and spooning out each end to enjoy.
