The Kiwi banana smoothie is delicious. It feels like an absolute splurge. If that’s the case, then search no further except this tummy-filling beverage. This smoothie is prepared by blending banana, kiwi and sugar syrup. Yeah, sugar syrup.
I made this smoothie using sugar syrup. You can replace sugar with honey. On the contrary, you can even skip chaat masala. Instead of desi chaat masala, you can put rock salt or nothing at all. It is your choice.
Variants of Kiwi Banana Smoothie
Yes, there are a ton of videos and recipes online. They all tell you how to make a healthy kiwi banana smoothie. Skip some items, substitute artificial sweeteners with natural ones and ta-daaaahh!
Your healthy kiwi banana smoothie is ready. With this in mind, let me show two methods to make this smoothie. Here you go.
Variant#1 Healthy Kiwi Banana Smoothie
The term healthy suggests that we can’t use sugar or artificial sweeteners. So, honey is the only option left with us, provided it is a pure one. We have a full-fledged guide on how to buy pure & the best honey online in India.
Refer to the article. Check whether your honey is pure or not.
So, blend kiwi, banana, honey, water & a pinch of salt. A healthy smoothie is ready.
Variant#2 Delicious Kiwi Banana Smoothie
The delicious version of kiwi banana smoothie has everything one can imagine. Let me tell you, this version of smoothie is not healthy. There are artificial sweeteners, heavy cream, milk cream, condensed milk or sugar, nuts, ice cubes and full-fat milk.
The process is similar. Blend all the ingredients, and you get a tasty version of kiwi banana smoothie. This smoothie is heavy because of milk and cream.
Now you know both the healthy & delicious versions of this smoothie. Hence, let’s discuss our core ingredients.
Kiwi Banana Smoothies Ingredients
Today am sharing a fruit smoothie recipe. This smoothie is a no-bake & no-cook item. Just blend everything & drink it. Therefore the ingredients are also limited. Let me show you what they are:
Kiwi & Banana
Use fresh kiwi & bananas. Chill at least 4-6 hours before blending them. Doing this will give you a creamy texture.
Sugar Syrup or honey?
Honey and not sugar syrup if you are using it as a pre or post-workout drink. It’s entirely your choice whether to use honey or sugar syrup.
Chaat masala or rock salt?
Even a pinch of ordinary salt will do. But rock salt is far better than ordinary salt. Using chaat masala is a kind of desi Indian style.
It is because we are habituated to drink masala soda, nimbu pani, shikanji and other drinks having chaat masala powder.
They are for garnishing purpose. If you don’t like the mint taste, then skip it.
So there’s nothing wrong with being desi when making a be-desi drink. 🤣😜
Kiwi Banana Smoothie FAQs
Okay, now it’s time for some quick FAQs about this beverage. Let’s answer the quick queries.
Is kiwi banana smoothie good for health?
This smoothie is an excellent healthy breakfast choice throughout the week. Bananas are packed with potassium, magnesium, and vitamin C. Moreover, this smoothie has extra fibre and protein.
Can I drink a banana kiwi smoothie every day?
If you are trying to lose weight, this smoothie is enjoyable. But be cautious that banana contains high calorie. On the other hand, avoid banana smoothies if you have a banana allergy.
Can I store this smoothie and have it later?
Of course, you can store it. But use glass containers. The best way to consume healthy beverages is to drink while they are still fresh. Do not make a large batch. Make what you can drink in one shot.
What shall I put in my smoothie – ice cubes or cold water?
Both ice-cubes & cold water are good. Use whichever is available depending on your likings.

Not necessary. You can use them directly without freezing. However, if you chill them for 4 to 6 hours before blending, it will give a creamy texture.
