Much like myself, kiwis are only hairy on the outside 🥝 thankfully they’re green on the inside so I could use them in this St. Patrick’s Day Kiwi Banana smoothie. The perfect blend of tart and sweet to give yo a creamy, nutrient dense breakfast or snack.
Channeling my Irish roots
Since I forgot to wear green today, I needed to make my ancestors proud and at least EAT something green. Plus, how could I say no to all those antioxidants and vitamin C? These smoothies are thick, creamy, and oh so satisfying.
You can whip these bad boys up in under 5 minutes. They’re perfect for breakfast, a mid-day snack, or healthy St. Patrick’s Day treat!
Thick, creamy texture: use a more traditional Greek yogurt. If you want it thinner try using Stoneyfield, Fage, or Chobani.
Keep it sweet or tart: Kiwis can be quite tart. If you need to sweeten it up add additional honey.
Celebrate those roots 🇮🇪: with such a vibrant green interior you’d think kiwis would be a good natural food dye… wrong. To make it green start by adding 1/4 cup spinach or kale and adding more as needed. You can also use green food coloring instead.
