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 cup mixed berries
  • 1 bananas
  • 1 kiwi

    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 :-)

  2. 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.

      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

  4. 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. :)

  7. Nicole 2.9.2014 at 6:15 am #

    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! :)

  8. ang 2.1.2014 at 6:02 pm #

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

  9. 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

    • Jadah and Jen 2.3.2014 at 11:56 am #

      Thanks for the suggestion, and this encouraging comment!

  10. Laura 1.9.2014 at 5:48 pm #

    Hi guys! I wanted something to help for weight loss, which would you guys recommend? This kiwi one of the green smoothie?

    • Laura 1.9.2014 at 5:48 pm #

      Or*

    • Jadah and Jen 1.10.2014 at 10:01 am #

      Hi Laura!
      This recipe is one of the best on our site if you’re looking to lose weight :-) Try drinking it as a meal replacement (breakfast, lunch, or dinner)!

  11. Amber 1.3.2014 at 2:23 pm #

    What brand of coconut water do you suggest?

    • Jadah and Jen 1.4.2014 at 8:37 am #

      There are a number that are good, but we buy Zico most of the time :-)

  12. Karyn 12.29.2013 at 7:34 pm #

    Do you have the nutrition info. For your smoothies? Calories, fat, carbs. Etc.?

  13. Carol 11.24.2013 at 2:30 pm #

    My friend got me to checkout your website, it looks like something I could do.
    What do you suggest for weight loss?
    I usually start my day off with a protein shake, should I add it to the smoothie or after on its own?
    If I had a protein shake for breakfast and smoothies for lunch and dinner … Would that be over doing it.
    It is Christmas season so the this would be more of a Mon to Fri thing. Dinners on the weekends I would eat whatever there is.
    Tried my first smoothie today loved it:-)

    • Jadah and Jen 11.25.2013 at 10:10 am #

      Hi Carol!
      It really depends what you think works best for you. We would suggest drinking a green smoothie in place of your protein shake in the morning. Leafy greens have tons of protein, and you could use things like almond milk, chia seeds, nuts in your smoothie to add protein if you feel you don’t get enough from a normal recipe. Hope this helps :-)

  14. Izzy 11.19.2013 at 3:21 am #

    I am not a big fan of avocado so is there anything that I could substitute avocado with that still has the same nutritional value?

    • Jadah and Jen 11.19.2013 at 12:37 pm #

      Use a little bit more of a fruit/veggie that is already in the recipe and add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Coconut oil has similar nutrients, but you don’t want to use the same amount of it as you would an avocado—it would make your smoothie way to coconut-y!

  15. Stine 9.17.2013 at 5:31 am #

    Just wondering.. I don’t have much time in the mornings, can I measure up and just freeze the ingredients in “portions”? And just add the portion+ water and avocado in the blender? I love the blog :)

  16. Kiley 8.30.2013 at 10:40 am #

    Hi! I’m looking for a recipe that maybe helps make skin look a little younger/brighter, do you have one you recommend? Or ingredients that will help with it?

  17. Luci 7.28.2013 at 7:11 pm #

    Do I need to peel the kiwi?

  18. Luci 7.28.2013 at 7:10 pm #

    Do I need to peel the kiwis?

  19. Faye 7.16.2013 at 11:05 pm #

    Hey! I just found this site while I was looking for recipes I could use with my new Juice Extractor. Do I have to use a blender or will my new kitchen tool work just as well?? Should I leave out the water and mix it in to emulsify after if I do use the extractor?

    • Jadah and Jen 7.18.2013 at 3:16 pm #

      Hi Faye! We aren’t to “hip” on the best ways to juice, but there are lots of people that use our recipes to juice with. Can anyone else help out?

  20. stefanie 6.30.2013 at 5:35 pm #

    I signed up for the 30 day challenge, starting tomorrow!! I’m so excited! BUT, I’m allergic to avocados….. what should I use in it’s place?

    • Jadah and Jen 7.3.2013 at 8:06 am #

      Banana or mango will do the trick!

      • Miranda 2.5.2014 at 2:40 pm #

        What is the equivalent of mango to the 1/2 advocado?

  21. Judith 6.19.2013 at 5:40 am #

    Do you have to always put a banana in the smoothie?

    • Jadah and Jen 6.19.2013 at 10:57 am #

      You do not :-) You can toy with recipes as much as you want!

  22. Judith 5.25.2013 at 7:14 am #

    I am allergic to kiwi. What else can I use in its place?

    • Jadah and Jen 5.28.2013 at 8:43 am #

      You’ll want to use something sweet and tangy… Maybe a clementine? Anything that tastes good to you and adds some sweet flavor!

  23. Iesha 4.11.2013 at 7:47 am #

    Hi I just want to know it 24oz is to big of a serving I am using the smoothie in place of breakfast also do you have to use a protein powder when you replace a meal and if so how much

    • Jadah and Jen 4.11.2013 at 8:59 am #

      Our average recommendation is 16 oz per serving. You can definitely go more than that if you would like, though, especially if you are replacing meals!

  24. gwendolyn 4.8.2013 at 2:43 pm #

    ! love it!

  25. gwendolyn 4.8.2013 at 2:40 pm #

    I’m looking future to trying out more of your smoothies so wish me luck guys ..

  26. gwendolyn 4.8.2013 at 2:38 pm #

    I Love to learn more about your healthy green smoothies and how to blend in to with real healthy foods on the weekends and at parties.

  27. Saxann 3.29.2013 at 3:13 pm #

    My sweet boyfriend went out looking for chia seeds for me but he bought the powder instead of the seeds!! Can I still use it in the smoothie? Thanks!!

    • Jadah and Jen 4.11.2013 at 8:58 am #

      If it is chia seed powder than that is great, Saxann :-)

  28. Sara 3.27.2013 at 10:45 am #

    Made this smoothie for breakfast this morning, and although I got some interesting looks in my morning meeting, it was delicious and filling! Love it!!!

    • Jen H 3.27.2013 at 6:17 pm #

      I love when I get the looks!

  29. jilly 3.25.2013 at 10:47 am #

    have made this 2 days in a row for my lunch. it’s pretty filling and tastes good. i put in a bit of lemon juice or zest to brighten it up. :) am hoping the Simple Green and this with a sensible dinner will keep me on a good road to weight loss and health.

  30. Cassandra N 3.8.2013 at 12:31 pm #

    Im allergic to avocados…any alternatives?

  31. Amy R 2.13.2013 at 6:47 pm #

    I just made this and poured a bunch of it into Popsicle molds to make “breakfast pops” for my son, but of course I had to pour some for myself – quality control of course. Delicious! I think my son will love it!

    • Jen H 2.14.2013 at 7:52 am #

      That’s awesome Amy! And yes— we always have to do a quality control check ;)

  32. Kem 1.27.2013 at 12:26 pm #

    Okay I’m about to go try this and I’m excited! Got my chia seeds for Trader Joe’s and I can’t wait to use it..

  33. Nialong85 1.10.2013 at 5:19 pm #

    Hi Jen H,

    What are chia seeds and where can i get them? If i can’t get them can i leave them out?

  34. Crystal 1.7.2013 at 6:56 am #

    I just drank this in two sips! I didn’t even get to the couch (where I was going to enjoy it!!). Shawnna – it should be a deep purple with darker spots b/c of the berries. :) This is a keeper! :)

    • Jen H 1.7.2013 at 8:25 am #

      That’s hilarious! Glad you enjoyed it Crystal! Should we make it tomorrow when we do our Battle of the Blenders?

  35. lulu 1.4.2013 at 10:58 am #

    how many serves for these recipe?

  36. Roxana 1.2.2013 at 10:43 am #

    How many calories does this have? Is this a meal replacement?

  37. Shawnna 12.30.2012 at 9:35 am #

    I followed the recipe but it came out a weird brownish-black color. What could I have done wrong?

  38. Sandra 12.29.2012 at 10:52 pm #

    I’m allergic to bananas and avocado!! HELP I would love to try this if I can substitute these 2 ingredients?? Thanks so much.

    • Jen H 12.31.2012 at 6:30 am #

      Hi Sandra. We recently shared this on Facebook because there are others who shared your same struggle:

      “Got an allergy or an aversion to some fruits? Swap it out with a fruit that you love and adore. Can’t eat bananas? Switch it with more mango, an avocado, papaya, pear or an apple to sweeten it up. Can’t do pineapples? Double up another ingredient already in the smoothie. If something calls for 1 cup of something you just can’t eat, swap it with 1 cup of a fruit you can eat. The best part is playing mini-chef with your blender. Not one smoothie will please everybody, but I promise over the next 30 days you will find a recipe that is your go-to smoothie. It will be the one you make for your friends and family and make them a green smoothie lover too. So explore, experiment, and smile!”

      Hope that helps!
