Kiwi Berry Punch

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 7.6.2015 | COMMENTS: 77


Kiwi Berry Punch-6

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

    This is such a fun, delicious smoothie!

  2. Jessica says:

    The banana and avocado make this one so creamy and delicious.

  3. Kim says:

    Should I peel the kiwi?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      You can if you like but you don’t have to. If you use the whole kiwi (peel and all), make sure you wash it really well before you toss it in the blender! 🙂

  4. Amanda says:

    Can I add kiwi to everything?

  5. Georgia says:

    I ended up blending this up without the kiwi. Then I chopped the kiwi and put it on top and made an awesome smoothie bowl. It was a 10.

  6. Olivia says:

    Going to make this for my toddler today! She already loves berries, so we’ll see what she thinks of this smoothie

  7. Jac says:

    I can’t do bananas. Any suggestions for a substitute?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Jac,

      I’ve got you covered! Some great banana swaps are mango, papaya, pears, unsweetened applesauce, nut butters, chia seeds, fresh dates, and avocado (won’t add sweetness, but the creaminess we love). Learn more about our favorite banana swaps + banana-free recipes here…

      https://simplegreensmoothies.com/recipes/green-smoothies/banana-free-green-smoothie-recipes

      Also, if you haven’t already. Make sure + check out our app, Daily Blends! We included a search feature where it only pulls banana-free recipes. Also each recipe has swaps built into them. So if you see an ingredient you don’t like , just swipe left + you’re good to go! It’s the “tinder” of green smoothies!

  8. Brian says:

    The recipe says that it serves two. I have been replacing my breakfast the last few days with one serving of the smoothie, and then replacing my lunch with the other serving (while eating dinner like normal). Is this considered OK? I have had a very heavy feeling in my stomach so I’m wondering if two servings in one day is too much? Or maybe my body is still getting used to a healthier diet. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Brian,

      When using our green smoothie as a meal replacement, we suggest replacing 1-2 meals, so you’re just right! As always, it’s always important to listen to your body!

  9. Ann says:

    HI!
    I see a comment and response earlier in this thread…. I too want to lose weight and plan to replace (where possible) two meals a day with a smoothie. I know I need to add protein and fat – but would I then need to adjust the recipe?

    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Ann,

      Great question. The avocado in this recipe already adds a great boost of healthy fats, so you’ll just need to add a protein like hemp hearts, chia seeds, or protein powder. This will ensure you’re fueling your body with a complete meal.

  10. Inbal says:

    Hello,
    This recipe looks awsome but where I live berries are crazy expensive, what is the best substitute I can use?

    Thank you,
    Inbal

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Inbal,

      Cherries are a great option if they’re available. Or swap in another fruit you love! Our recipes are here to inspire you, so please don’t feel like you need to follow them to a T.

  11. Heather G. says:

    just wondering. Why does some smoothie combinations just doesn’t work out “taste right”? I use the correct ingredients. I’m guessing it is our taste buds. We love a chocolate banana peanut butter smoothie with avocado, protein powder and almond milk with spinach, beets or kale. But some combinations like strawberry banana pinapple with spinach, protein powder and avocado just doesn’t taste sweet like fruity. or we tried a cinnamon bun smoothie this morning with one banana and cinnamon, vanilla, almond milk and avocado didn’t taste like it should have. I have a vitamix. I write down recipes which we really like them so i remember the ingredients to switch off when making them.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Heather,

      While we love smoothies, we agree not all recipes yield a yummy delicious result. Our secret to delicious creamy green smoothies is our Simple Green Smoothie Formula! 2 cups leafy greens, 2 cups liquid base, and 3 cups fruit. Learn more about our formula here…

  13. Sherry says:

    What do you think of adding medium tofu to the smoothies for protein?

    I struggle with eating at least 3 meals which prevents me from losing weight and sometime causes gain. I’m finding having a smoothie in the morning makes me hungry therefore I eat lunch as well.

    I would prefer a smoothie for breakfast and lunch but fear I’m not getting enough protein as I don’t use any powders.

    Would tofu do the trick?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Sherry!

      Thanks for reaching out! You can totally add tofu to your smoothie :). If using your smoothie as a meal replacement, we always recommend adding some healthy fat + protein. Here are some of our favorite combos!

  14. Candice says:

    Hello,
    Could I replace the avocado for almond butter and it still be a good weight loss option? Thank.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Candice!

      Thanks for reaching out! We love using almond butter as a source of healthy fat + protein, and it can absolutely we used instead of avocado. However, we always like to remind our community members that, even though weight loss can be a happy side effect of incorporating green smoothies into your diet, it does not happen in the same way for everyone. Weight loss is dependent on so many factors (age, metabolism, level of physical activity, etc.), and can be a complicated issue. Consequently, we like to encourage people to focus on creating healthy habits to last a lifetime as opposed to numbers on the scale. Any long lasting change takes time, and healthy eating is no exception. If you stick with it, you’ll eventually see results :).

  15. Jane says:

    Can I substitute kale for spinach in your recipes? I usually buy one or the other, not both when shopping since I’m the only one that eats it.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Jane!

      Absolutely! We like to think of our recipes simply as suggestions :). Totally feel free to use any leafy green you love!

      Cheers!

  16. Sissy says:

    I can’ eat bananas, what can I substitute them with for the kiwi berry punch?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Sissy,

      Can’t eat bananas? No worries! Swap in mango, papaya, pears, unsweetened applesauce, nut butters, chia seeds, fresh dates, or avocado (won’t add sweetness, but the creaminess we love).

  17. Angelle says:

    Since this is suggested for weight loss, is this kiwi berry punch a meal replacement smoothie, or would I need to add more protein?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Angelle,

      Great question! When using this recipe as a meal replacement, adding protein is a great option to ensure you’re fueling your body with a complete meal. Learn more about our favorite meal replacement booster combos here…

  18. Kelly says:

    Hi, I have been doing your smoothies that I found in womens world but I have a question about the plant based protein powder, what is the best one to use and is it good for myself that is over 50 and also can my husband use the same kind?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Kelly,

      YAY! We’re so excited to hear you read Jadah’s article in Women’s World. Looking to give your smoothie a protein boost? We love reaching for plant-based protein powders like hemp or pea protein. One of our favorite brands in Nutiva, check out their hemp protein powder here…

      http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001OHX1ZY/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B001OHX1ZY&linkCode=as2&tag=wwwfamilyspon-20&linkId=YWJGFX3FCCSLGEGC

      Plant-based protein is a great option for men + women. Worried about your age? It’s always great to discuss any diet changes with your physician before adding them!

  19. Tosin says:

    Hello,

    Started the 30day cleanse but I can’t find almond milk, is it ok to substitute with coconut milk?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Tosin,

      Great question! We love coconut milk! But you should be aware, even though it is high in protein, fiber, and other micronutrients, it is also high in calories and fat. For this reason we recommend using coconut milk as a liquid-base only for special indulgences–maybe for date night desserts. This milk does help to protect your heart, but it will cost you in other areas if used on a regular basis.

      Can’t find almond milk? Have you thought about making your own? Check out our recipe here…

      https://simplegreensmoothies.com/healthy-eating/diy-almond-milk

      Or swap in another nut milk, oat milk, or rice milk.

      Hope this helps!

  20. Alicia says:

    Hi just wanting to check whether your smoothie recipes in the 30 day challenge are 1 serve? Thanks

      Hi Alicia,

      Thanks for reaching out! All of the recipes for our 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge make two servings, perfect for sharing the green smoothie love! Know you only want one?

  21. Vivek Gupta says:

    Should I be removing the skin of Avocado?

  22. Vivek Gupta says:

    Just a suggestion – It will be great if you also start including calories and carbs details in these recipes. Right now I calculate it myself by searching each items on http://www.calorieking.com/ and I am sure other users may be doing the same………… By adding calorie and cabs information, you will make life of people like me more convenient 🙂

    PS: I have registered for the April challenge and am looking forward to it !!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Vivek,

      We’re so excited to have you join us for our April 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge! We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

      Cheers!

  29. Alison says:

    I’m loving the 21 day cleanse. I don’t like the texture of shredded coconut in my food. On the days where the menu includes shredded coconut, I am including it in my smoothie. I’m assuming this will work? I didn’t want to give up any nutrients. Would it matter if I left the coconut out all together?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Alison,

      We love adding coconut flakes to our green smoothies especially during the cleanse because it provides your body with healthy fats, a feeling of fullness/balanced blood sugar, and has natural sweetness. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut products are used by the body as a source of fuel to stimulate metabolism, rather than directly being stored as fat.

      Adding a small amount of coconut oil in place of flakes will still provide your body with the majority of health benefits, without any of the grit!

      Hope this helps!

  30. Pat says:

    I have just started the 3o day trial and want to know how do you calculate the nutritional score per serving. Can this be used as a full replacement to breakfast?

    I have trouble getting my greens (like spinach or kale) to break down enough. There are still too many pieces of greens floating in the smoothy even though I blend it for a long time. I have a strong blender (Ninja. What is the secret?
    Susan

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Susan,

      Thanks for reaching out! Our #1 tip for blending the perfect green smoothie is to blend your greens + liquid base first. Once your greens resemble a juice consistency, add your remaining ingredients. Using at least one frozen fruit will also help breakdown any leafy pieces. Learn more here…

    Hello,

    I note that your recipe as avocado in, if I am adding protein and fats (for example almond butter and rolled oats) do i still need to add the avocado?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Sarah,

      Great question! This recipe is already packed with healthy fats from the avocado, so simply adding protein to this green smoothie will make it the perfect meal replacement!

      Cheers 🙂

  37. julie says:

    You remove the skin from the Kiwi??

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Julie,

      Great question! The skin of the kiwi is actually packed with nutrients + is edible. A recent study shows that eating the skin triples the fiber intake compared to merely eating the flesh. And by not peeling the skin, you preserve much of the vitamin C content as well.

      Deciding to peel or not, is all about your blender. Do you have a blendin’ powerhouse at home? Leave the skin on!

  38. Evelyn says:

    If you use Costco’s frozen Organic three-berry blend (straw, blue, and black berries) use a mesh colander after blending to sift the seeds! If not you’ll have a crunchy smoothie!
