Recipe Features:

  • Loaded with superfoods like spinach, kiwi and avocado
  • Dairy-free and can be made vegan
  • You can enjoy this smoothie as a quick breakfast, a healthy snack or lunch

Initially, when I made this smoothie it was a complete experiment. It was a, “throw everything into the blender type situation,” and see what happens. To my surprise it turned out delicious!

And, you just won’t believe all the veggies that are in it either. IT IS PACKED!!! This light and refreshing green smoothie is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients like spinach, avocado and zucchini. The crazy thing is, you can’t even taste the veggies. But, what you can make out is a light sweetness from the banana, the twist from the kiwi, and the super smooth and creamy avocado.

Depending on when I choose to enjoy this smoothie, sometimes I like to add a trilogy of flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds, which adds loads of fiber, protein and healthy fats. It’s optional but, if you do, you just may need to add some more coconut water to thin it out, because the smoothie will get much thicker. My favorite brand is below.

Ingredient Notes For This Kiwi Avocado Green Smoothie:

  • Zucchini – I leave the skin on, and I don’t notice a change in the smoothie texture at all.
  • Banana – Thawed or frozen will work. If you use thawed, you’ll just need to add some ice to thicken the smoothie and make it cold. If using frozen, no ice is needed. (Don’t add too much ice, or it will water the smoothie down).
    • Pro Tip – Wait until the last minute to pull the banana out of the freezer. If it’s out on the counter for too long it will defrost and become soft.
  • Kiwi – Did you know that kiwi is rich in dietary fibers, proteins and vitamins?
    • Feel free to use either green or golden kiwi here. Green kiwi is less sweet and tangy. Whereas golden kiwi has a tropically sweet taste, and is a lot smoother and sweeter. Both are fantastic, though!
  • Sweetener – If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough you can add some honey to balance out the flavors. And, to make it vegan, use maple syrup instead. (For this recipe, I prefer to use a bit of maple syrup).

Description

This light and refreshing Kiwi, Avocado Green Smoothie is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients like spinach, kiwi, avocado and zucchini. The banana and kiwi give it some sweetness and the avocado makes it super creamy. And, to finish it off, feel free to top it with some crunchy granola and additional fruit slices.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 handfuls Spinach
  • 1 cup Zucchini (skin on), roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Avocado, pitted and scooped

  • Topping add-ons: Granola, banana slices, kiwi slices

Instructions

  1. Blend: Add the veggies, fruit and coconut water to a blender and blend until nice and smooth.
  2. Check for sweetness: If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough, add your sweetener of choice and blend until just incorporated. Enjoy immediately. 
  3. NOTE: If you use thawed banana, you’ll need to add some ice to thicken the smoothie and make it cold. (Start with a small handful; about 5-7 big pieces).

  • Sweetener: If the smoothie isn’t sweet enough you can add some honey to balance out the flavors. And to make it vegan, use maple syrup instead.
  • Trilogy Seeds: If using, be sure to add some more coconut water to thin it out, because the smoothie will get much thicker.
