Kiwi Smoothie



          There is nothing more refreshing than a cooling smoothie made with fresh fruits, when the temperature climbs up the Celsius scale. Actually, you cannot do with out one every day as the weather squeezes all the water and vigour out of your body. That constant fatigue which you feel and the lack of enthusiasm in every deeds in hot weather can be better alleviated with nothing more than a fresh juice or smoothie. I often make this kiwi smoothie whenever the kiwis become over ripe and the weather is not very soothing..


      Now, to tempt you better, here are a few benefits of fresh Kiwi fruit. Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene. They are also excellent sources of fibre and has great anti- oxidant property. It is found to have great benefits in fighting respiratory diseases, if consumed regularly. So there! Are you game for a refreshing Kiwi smoothie? Here is the recipe..
