Spicy Kiwi Banana Smoothie. High in vitamin C, fiber and potassium. Delicious and tasty.| hurrythefoodup.com

Kiwis. Small, flightless birds and symbol of New Zealand. Ever tried putting one in a blender? No? Good. You shouldn’t either, it’s probably illegal. But there’s no excuse for not trying this quick and spicy kiwi breakfast smoothie – it’s absolutely rammed with vitamin C and is high in calcium, fiber, protein, iron and potassium.

It’s a great summer smoothie that’s really filling too – courtesy of the porridge oats. Your body will thank you, and the ginger gives the taste a real kick.

Health Benefits – Kiwi Banana Smoothie

This smoothie really is one of the best. One serving contains 36% of your GDA of fibre, which has a myriad of different health benefits – like lowering glucose and cholesterol levels and protecting against heart disease and diabetes (Fantastic Fibre).

A serving also contains nearly a third (32%) of the GDA for potassium – critical for blood pressure control and kidney function (Powerful Potassium).

On top of that it even has less than 300 calories. Combined with the other nutrients included – the only question left is: what are you waiting for?
