Kiwi Berry Punch Green Smoothie - Simple Green Smoothies

Kiwi Berry Punch Green Smoothie

Berries are naturally sweet immunity boosters, low-calorie, and full of antioxidants. Kiwi is packed with vitamin C and an amazing fat-burning citrus fruit. We always keep several bags of frozen berries in the freezer— which is perfect for this recipe.

  • 1 bananas

    New to the website and the green smoothie life… is there a replacement for blueberries? I’m rather allergic to them.

      Hi Kelley, please sub in any other type of berry that you are not allergic to. Strawberries? Raspberries?

    I’ve been drinking O water lately and notice it has a fresher, crisper taste than other bottled water. It also is available with fruit flavoring. I haven’t tried it yet, but it may make a nice water base for these smoothies. Do you have a preferred bottled water for smoothies?

    Hi There,
    Very excited to have found your site and away to the shops this morning to pick up lots of healthy goodies to try making some smoothies. Just one question if I make some today how long will it last or do have to make a new smoothie every day?
    Cheers

      Hi Kirsten!
      Green smoothies will last up to two days in your fridge in a sealed container :-) We usually try to drink them sooner, though.

    How do you deal with the mouth pain from all the acidic fruits in the smoothies?? I’ve had them two days in a row and not sure I can drink a third one! Help!!

    Do you add the kiwi and avocado with skins on them or peel before adding to smoothie?

  6. Lauren 6.14.2014 at 1:14 pm #

    Hi,
    Can I use frozen spinach? I like to eat organic greens as much as possible but it isn’t always easy
    to find fresh organic spinach. I know that your recipes call for fresh spinach. Also, can I use romaine lettuce as a substitute for spinach or kale? Thanks.

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 6.16.2014 at 1:17 pm #

      Hi Lauren!
      We prefer to use fresh or freeze the fresh spinach ourselves. Usually, spinach you buy already frozen is cooked a bit first :-)

    Hi, I was just wondering what you could substitute in for bananas?

  8. Jackie 5.18.2014 at 7:29 am #

    Hi. My morning smoothie is pretty consistent. Water, coconut water, spinach (or kale), frozen banana, berries, pineapple, hemp seed, coconut oil, maca, spiralina, sun warrior raw protein and bee pollen.
    Just wondering if I should be mixing this up a bit or if 2 of these a day plus the green salad with raw veggies and some fruit would be sufficient for nutrients for a day.

      Hi Jackie!
      We are fans of having a variety of green smoothies, but feel free to have one or two “go-to” green smoothies that you keep coming back to. You can find more recipes here!

    Hello, I am loving your green smoothies recipes and have shared your website with most of my friends and family.
    I was wondering if I could just replace frozen mixed berries with some more fresh blueberries and fresh strawberries?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 5.7.2014 at 8:31 am #

      You sure can, Camille!

  10. Vanessa 4.24.2014 at 5:06 am #

    What can I substitute for the avocado?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 4.24.2014 at 8:51 am #

      Try using just a couple tablespoons of coconut oil, or a 1/2 cup of cashews. You can soak the cashews for a few hours before blending, or you can blend them as is—soaking will make them blend creamier. Hope this helps!

    Hey! About how many calories does 16oz of green smoothie have? Does it depend what fruits you are using or are they roughly all about the same?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 4.24.2014 at 8:51 am #

      Hi Maya!
      I’m sure each smoothie has a different calorie count. We recommend using “Lose It” or “My Fitness Pal” to track caloric intake with green smoothies.

    Hi again, I am allergic to strawberries, kiwi and avocado..any tolerable alternatives for this smoothie?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.27.2014 at 12:52 pm #

      We would recommend finding another recipe to try :-)

  13. Nakia Morgan 3.21.2014 at 6:11 pm #

    If I am understanding right from the responses and FAQ’s you consider 1 serving as 16oz…so this recipe would make about 32 oz.? I just need to know because when I plug it in as is in MyFitnessPlanet it has too many carbs for my allotted diabetic exchange per meal. I was just going to split it in half…is that okay? What size Kiwi?

    How long can you drink detox smoothies before it because too much?

    Some one recommended whey protein to my mom to help us feel fuller, what is your view on that? Right now in the house we have Ground Flax Seeds, Organic Chia Seeds and Whey Protein. What is the difference and when should each be used, can they be used together?

    Any Advice would help….Thanks in advance.

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.24.2014 at 9:39 am #

      Hi Nakia!
      Yes, each serving is 16 ounces and most recipes make 32 ounces.

      Not sure what you mean by detox smoothies, but we like drinking at least one green smoothie a day and don’t plan on stopping :-)

      Here’s our favorite forms of protein:

    this one is so delicious, but the seeds drove me nuts! would a better quality blender get rid of those seeds?
    So glad I came across your site. I have been adding kefir milk to some of these

  15. Nitza 3.17.2014 at 7:28 pm #

    Do you mean a regular size avocado or hass avocado?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.18.2014 at 6:14 am #

      Either :-) This photo looks like a regular avocado.

    Hi! I just wanted to leave a comment of thanks! I am on day 3 of a 20 day detox that requires me to eat raw vegan but will allow me to make smoothies using water and organic produce. I use a lot of your recipes for breakfast and lunch and for dinner I eat raw veggies with a fruit for dessert. I have lost 5lbs since Friday and today is Sunday! I can’t wait to see the end result. Thank you, thank you and, oh yeah…Thank you!

    I have made 2 of the smoothie recipes now, and both of mine have made 3 smoothies, not 2. 16 oz servings. This isn’t a bad thing… just an FYI for others. Or… am I doing something wrong? I’m following the directions as written…

    • Jadah and Jen 3.3.2014 at 9:31 am #

      Hi Michelle,
      That’s even better. More to share with others or keep for later. :)

    Hi there, I am a nursing mother…when not nursing…the smoothie alone would probably fill me up, however I am nursing so I still feel pretty hungry about 30 minutes later. I see people asking questions about adding protein, would that be ok for me to do as I am wanting to healthily lose the rest of my baby weight but stay full (without having a bunch of “bad” calories?). I would probably use hemp protein or brown rice protein as I follow a mostly vegan diet. TIA! :)

    U guys r very informative, thanks so much for the awesome info!!

  20. Joey 1.29.2014 at 12:06 pm #

    Jadah and Jen,

    i think this website is WONDERFUL!! I make a refreshing smoothie after every workout in the early AM before i get to the office.

    By reading the comments, I think it would be a GREAT idea to get the nutritional info for your followers as it is hard to determine when purchasing produce at the stores.

    SANDRA! Dont be silly – These are recipes that are tried and true, but not concrete!! CERTAINLY you can substitute. Free your mind and experiment with different produce.

    Thanks again for blessing us!!

    Joe
