  • 1 Und Kiwi peeled and cut into pieces

  • 2 tablespoons Sugar (optional, you can adjust the amount according to your taste)

Instructions

  • Wash and cut all fruits into small pieces, including kiwi.

Tips

  • It is suggested to eat them without blending them and replace the heavy cream with oat flakes.
  • Fruit Selection: Choose fresh, ripe fruits for the best flavor and texture in your smoothie. You can use a single fruit or combine several to obtain different flavors and nutrients.
  • Freeze the fruits: If you want a colder, creamier smoothie, you can freeze some of the fruits before blending them. Fruits like bananas, mangoes, berries, and frozen pineapples work great in smoothies.
  • Dairy and alternatives: You can use regular milk, plant milk (such as almond, coconut, or oat), or yogurt to add creaminess to the smoothie. Choose the option you prefer according to your tastes and dietary needs.
  • Add protein: If you want to increase the protein content of your shake, you can add protein powder or a tablespoon of nut butter (such as peanut or almond butter).
  • Natural sweeteners: If you want to sweeten the smoothie, you can add honey, maple syrup, dates or stevia instead of refined sugar. This will give it a sweet touch without adding too many extra calories.
  • Additional Textures and Flavors: You can add other ingredients to give the smoothie more texture and flavor, such as chia seeds, grated coconut, walnuts, fresh spinach, or mint.
  • Proper mixing: Use a high-speed blender or mixer to obtain a smooth and homogeneous shake. Make sure to mix for long enough so that all the ingredients are properly combined.
  • Presentation and decoration: Serve the smoothie in tall glasses and decorate with fresh fruit slices, mint leaves or a pinch of cinnamon on top.

  2. Hydration: Fruits, especially those with high water content, such as watermelon, contribute to maintaining adequate hydration of the body.
  3. Dietary fiber: Fruits contain dietary fiber, which is essential for maintaining digestive health, promoting bowel regularity, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  4. Antioxidants: Many fruits are rich in antioxidants, which help protect the body's cells against damage caused by free radicals, thus helping to prevent chronic diseases.
  5. Energy and satiety: Fruits are a natural source of energy due to their natural sugar content. In addition, the fiber present in fruits can contribute to the feeling of satiety, helping to control appetite and manage weight.
