What You Need to Make Kiwi and Banana Smoothie
- Kiwi: When buying kiwi fruits, choose fragrant and slightly soft ones. Stay away from kiwi fruits with wrinkles on the skin.
- Banana: Remember that the only preparation we have to do beforehand is to freeze bananas. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and slice bananas into 1/2-inch rounds and place them on the parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the banana slices are completely frozen. Remove the baking sheet from the freezer and place frozen sliced bananas into a freezer bag. Place them again in the freezer for later use. Hurray! You will always have perfectly frozen bananas.
- Milk: You can use vegan milk or dairy milk to make this smoothie.
- Greek yogurt: Use plain Greek yogurt for this recipe. The Greek yogurt adds extra protein and a creamy texture to the banana and kiwi smoothie.
- Sweetener: I usually use honey, but you can also use one or two tablespoons of agave syrup to balance out the tartness of kiwifruits.
How to Make Kiwi and Banana Smoothies
- Pour all the ingredients into the blender and give a few pulses until it is completely smooth and frothy and there is no large piece of fruit inside. You can also add a few pieces of an ice cube to have an icy texture smoothie.
- Top the smoothie with fresh fruits, and granola.
Pro Tips to Make Banana Kiwi Smoothies
- You can replace milk with plain Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt gives this smoothie a delicious richness. Your fridge just ran out of Greek yogurt? Use plain or vanilla yogurt instead.
- If your mixer is powerful enough, you don’t need to chop the bananas. If not, you need to cut the ingredients into small pieces. For smoothies, you need a powerful blender. If your blender isn’t powerful enough, it won’t be able to break up frozen fruits and ice.
- Would you like to add more vegetables to the smoothie? Add a few slices of avocado and a handful of baby spinach to the ingredients in the blender.
I prefer to enjoy smoothies right away but you can store smoothie leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Give it a quick stir if it separates.
What Fruit Goes Well With Kiwi?
A variety of fruits can pair well with kiwi, including strawberry, banana, orange, and pineapple.
