Ingredients:

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • ½ banana
  • 1 kiwi
  • ¼ cup raw organic yogurt
  • ¼ cup water

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth texture is reached.

Smoothies are a delightfully healthy food when done right. When you purchase them at an overpriced smoothie shop, they’re often full of low-quality ingredients and a lot of added sugar — this small smoothie, for example, has nearly three times the amount of sugar as a can of Coke!

But why bother buying these drinks when you can make your own? This delicious and refreshing Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie is one of my favorites. Thanks to the kiwi, it’s chock-full of vitamin C. If you thought oranges were good, wait until you try kiwis: These fuzzy little fruits have 275 percent of your daily recommended allowance of the nutrient.

And when you combine them with nutrition-rich strawberries, which are packed with antioxidants, along with some banana and raw yogurt, you get an easy-to-make, fruity smoothie you can enjoy as a yummy breakfast, post-workout snack or just an after-dinner treat.

Add all the ingredients to the blender. You can use fresh ingredients if you can find them, but the good thing about this strawberry kiwi smoothie is that it works equally well with frozen ingredients for those cooler months.

Blend it all up until you reach a smooth texture and serve. You can garnish with some fresh basil or mint leaves to jazz this smoothie up. To give your smoothie an extra nutritional boost, add a scoop of green vegetable powder. Enjoy!

    Hi Dr. Axe, I purchase lots of your healthy supplements that I love, the only one I have difficulty is the new Bone Broth Protein (plain) every time I mix it in my smoothies, it tastes sour! What do you suggest? I love the Collagen and the Healing Protein, also Green Superfood. My favorite is Collagen Protein since I use it I get so many compliments how beautiful my skin looks, I want to thank you for that :-) I’m 66 years old and still run 4 times a week (3 to 6 miles) every time and bike 9 or 10 miles the other days. Always training for a half-marathon 4 times a year trying to stay healthy and strong, thanks for helping me :-)

    Dr. Axe: If you want to make this smoothie in a fix and do not have organic yogurt, is milk kefir a worthy substitute even if it has a more liquid consistency?
