How to make a healthy kiwi and banana smoothie

  1. The first step is to choose the fruit that we are going to use. I have used a very ripe and sweet banana, which has saved me from adding honey or additional sugar. In the case of kiwi, I have opted for the yellow variety since they are juicier and sweeter. However, you can also use a green kiwi.
  2. Peel the banana and cut it into medium-sized portions. It is important to cut the fruit a little before blending it to avoid large lumps remaining in the fruit smoothie. Add it to the mixer or blender.
  3. We repeat the process, now with the kiwi. We peel it, chop it and add it to the blender. To peel it, it is advisable to cut it in half and remove the inside with a spoon.
  4. We add a splash of lemon to the blender, which will highlight the flavor of the banana and kiwi. Optionally we add a little sugar, honey or sweetener. I have chosen not to add sugar since the yellow kiwis and ripe banana already give the smoothie or shake a sweet touch.
  5. Add the 100 ml of milk to the blender. If preferred, almond, soy or oat milk can be used. I have used whole cow's milk.
  6. Next we add 4-5 ice cubes. The amount will depend on how thick we like our shakes. The more ice, the more liquefied it will be.
  7. We beat the entire mixture for a few seconds until a homogeneous mixture is formed.
  8. We serve in a glass and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. If you prefer, you can leave it in the fridge or refrigerator for a while so that it is colder.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
