Tickle your taste buds with this delicious and nutritious tropical kiwi pineapple smoothie!
Ever make a smoothie that no matter how hard you try you can’t set it down? This is one of those mouthwatering smoothies. I had just enough time to take a few pictures before it was history.
I try and eat locally grown food whenever possible. However, I make exceptions for tasty and nourishing foods such as kiwi and pineapple.
Kiwis are high in vitamin C, containing more of this essential vitamin than an equivalent amount of orange. Vitamin C and the other phytonutrients found in kiwis result in an antioxidant powerhouse. They are also a good source of dietary fiber, potassium, and contain trace amounts of other vitamins and minerals.
Pineapples are rich in vitamin C and manganese, and a good source of dietary fiber, folate, copper, vitamin B1, and vitamin B6. This nutrient profile promotes the following health benefits: immune support, antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory, digestive aid, and protection against macular degeneration.
Kiwi and pineapple combined with coconut milk, avocado, lime juice, and honey make for one healthy smoothie.
