The kiwi, or kiwi fruit, is a berry that can be eaten and is roughly the size of a chicken egg. It has a fuzzy outer skin that can be eaten if it is organic; however, if it is not organic, it must be peeled. This fuzzy greenish-brown peel covers a green fruit with a creamy white center and edible black seeds. The kiwi has a slightly sweet and tangy or sour flavor, much like a strawberry, but more exotic. The texture of the kiwi is creamy, much like a banana.

The kiwi fruit is available year-round in most grocery stores. It can be eaten alone, in a salad (whatever your tastes are), in tarts, or in smoothies. The kiwi smoothie is probably the best and easiest way to enjoy this large berry, among which the banana kiwi smoothies is my favorite. A few recipes included below will provide you a number of interesting and exotic flavors.

10 Delicious Kiwi Smoothies to Try

The reason that people are mainly attracted to the kiwi is because of its exotic flavor and bright green color. The health benefits of eating the kiwi fruit are many. For example, it is a rich source of vitamin C, vitamin A, as well as folic acid, and magnesium. The seeds are edible and contain a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that eating between 2 and 3 kiwi fruits a day for about a month can help to get rid of clots and blockages. The kiwi also cleans out toxins, has enzymes that can aid in digestion, and protects the DNA from damage. It is also a good source of edible fiber, phosphorous, B6, vitamin K, and vitamin E.

So why not enjoy kiwi smoothies now? All you need to do is to clean your ingredients, cut them to roughly the same size, put them in blender and blend until both creamy and smooth. Enjoy!
