What is a Smoothie?
Smoothies are generally a drink made with pureed fruits and vegetables. They are blended smoothly along with yoghurt or milk and ice. Sometimes, using cottage cheese.
Ingredients like honey or sugar are for sweetening purposes, but sugar is avoided to make it healthy. Green smoothies generally have up to 40% of green vegetables. They are thick and smooth in texture.
Don’t you guys think it sounds familiar to one of the Indian drinks? Any guesses? Lassi! Yes, Lassi is our version of a smoothie. Who knew?😀😀
Variations of Kiwi Apple Smoothie
If you browse the internet for Kiwi smoothies, you will get overloaded. There are a ton of varieties available. Trust me when I say that you will find a combination of Kiwi with almost every fruit and some vegetables as well.
I’ve seen recipes for Kiwi smoothies with every imaginable fruit. Not only that but with vegetables like celery, kale, spinach & even broccoli as well. (I know some of you had made a face at those names.🙁🙁) If you are health conscious or dieting, then you must give it a try.
The basic kiwi smoothie will contain bananas most of the time. Therefore, Kiwi Banana Smoothie is more popular. The least used fruit in those recipes might be an apple. Other than that, different berries like strawberries, raspberries or black currents, etc., are preferable.
Other than all these, chia seeds are heavily used in smoothies. It acts as a thickener in case you don’t have yoghurt. Blend it with other fruits as well.
Apart from this, avocado is good when you are preparing a green Kiwi smoothie. To add to the health factor, oatmeals will be great. But remember to grind them before using them in the smoothie finely.
Lastly, silken tofu is also an option. Not only it just has a neutral taste, but it will provide a creamy texture and a vegan protein source.
Ingredients of Kiwi Apple Smoothie
Just blend the ingredients & you will get a fantastic no-cook kiwi apple smoothie. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the list of the ingredients.
Kiwi & Apple
Use these fruits fresh. Frozen one will be okay, too but not recommended. So instead, we are taking the kiwi pulp using a spoon. It’s easy this way. You can cut them into pieces as well.
As you know, sugar is to sweeten the smoothie. But to make it healthy, use honey. Or skip enhancing the smoothie. That’s fine as well.
Rock Salt & Chaat Masala
Simple salt will do. But rock salt is better to enhance the taste. To make it more flavoury, use chaat masala. Just like the way we use it in nimbu pani or masala soda.
Cinnamon has a strong aroma. As a result, it adds a tad bit of natural sweetness. Now you will experience this on your taste buds after gulping the smoothie since it has a sharp taste profile use cautiously.
Lemon juice needs no introduction. It is for a tangy taste. There’s no further explanation required.
Add Water depending on the thickness you require. Remember, smoothies are thick most of the time. Hence, use water gradually. The same goes for ice as well.
- Gold kiwifruit (if available) is better than green kiwifruit. Use them.
- Use a freezer bag to chill the fruits. Chilled fruits give you a firmer and creamier texture.
- Cucumber, diced mangoes, lime, pineapple & oranges are recommended combinations for this smoothie.
- If you are into alcohol, then kiwi daiquiri is for you. First, blend the kiwifruit, add little castor sugar, 2 tbsp lime juice, two shots of white rum, eight ice cubes & mix. Then, you are ready to get high.
