Ingredients

The simple and fresh ingredients you need to make this strawberry-kiwi smoothie include:

  • Strawberry. It’s best to use frozen strawberries for the texture. You can buy already frozen at the store or freeze fresh strawberries. Sweet strawberries will require less sugar in this healthy smoothie recipe. This recipe is perfect if you have leftover strawberries during the season.
  • Kiwi. A ripe kiwi is ideal, it will give it more sweetness. Unripe kiwis tend to be tart. Make sure to use room-temperature fresh kiwi fruit so the ingredients can blend together more easily. (And if you don’t already know, you can learn how to cut a kiwi in three simple ways!)
  • Milk. Any milk can be used. Regular milk, oat, soy, or another nut-based milk such as cashew or almond milk are all great options. If needed, sub in apple juice or orange juice.
  • Yogurt. Plain, unsweetened yogurt is the best option. Regular, goat’s milk, Greek yogurt, or other nut or plant-based yogurt will all work. Plain yogurt without flavor reduces the amount of sugar.
  • Sweetener. This is optional and will depend on your other ingredients and personal taste. Make the smoothie first and then add it in if you would like more sweetness. Honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar will work.

How to Make a Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie?

Below, you’ll find the easy steps to take when making this kiwi strawberry smoothie:

Combine Ingredients

You can use either a small individual-sized blender, or a large high-speed blender to make smoothies.

Nutribullet or Ninjas are popular personal-sized blenders and feature the blade on the TOP instead of the bottom. On the other hand, a traditional blender or high speed blender, like a Vitamix, has the blade on the BOTTOM.

No matter which blender you use, make sure to follow the instructions for loading the ingredients in relation to the blade.

Add all ingredients to the blender jar. Place the softer ingredients closer to the blade and the frozen ingredients further from the blade. This ensures everything will blend properly.

All of the ingredients are added to the vitamix blender.

Blend It Up

Blend for 1-2 minutes. Keep an eye on the texture and blend until you reach the perfect smooth and creamy consistency.

Garnish

Serve with fresh diced strawberries, kiwis, and a straw.

This is a basic recipe for you to work with. Up the nutritional value by adding in any of these healthy smoothie ingredients:

  • Protein powder
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Peanut butter
  • Leafy greens
  • Fish or flax seed oil
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Turmeric powder
  • Avocado
  • Other fresh or frozen fruits
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp seeds

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Prepare this smoothie in advance to make mornings even easier! Measure out the ingredients and place them in a freezer-safe bag. Store the bags for up to 3-4 months in freezer. Let it sit out at room for 30 minutes so the ingredients can thaw, then blend and serve.
  • To Store: Smoothies are best enjoyed immediately.

Dietary Modifications

The recipe you’ll find below is already gluten-free and vegetarian as written. Here are some adjustments and substitutions you can make to help it fit your other dietary requirements:

  • Whole30: Leave out the sweetener to keep this smoothie Whole30 compliant.
  • Vegan: Use a plant-based milk and yogurt for a vegan smoothie.
  • Paleo: Make sure to find a plant-based milk and yogurt, and avoid any unrefined sugar.
Fresh kiwis and strawberries are placed on the top of the smoothie.

What fruits go well with kiwi?

Strawberries are the best flavor combo with kiwis. You can change it up and add in other frozen fruits such as mango, cherries, or berries as well.

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Go with a combo. Opt for both fresh and frozen fruits. This makes the ingredients easier to blend together.
  • A higher-fat milk is worth it. The creamiest smoothies are made with higher-fat milks such as cow’s milk, oat milk, and coconut milk.
  • Freeze fresh. If strawberries are in season this will be the tastiest option.
  • Ripen up. Unripe kiwis will be tart and you’ll end up needing to add a lot more sweetener.
  • Get creative. Add in tons of other healthy ingredients to up the nutritional content.
