Kiwi Strawberry Green Smoothie

Are you feeling adventurous?! Try this Kiwi Strawberry Green Smoothie on for size!

We love rotating our smoothie greens (which is a great way to avoid alkaloid build-up) by adding in new and different greens than our usual kale, spinach, or chard.

Dandelion greens may sound intimidating. I mean, aren’t those the pesky weeds that grow in your grass? Bet you didn’t know that they are 100% edible, and not only that, but loaded with nutrients like vitamins A and C, B6, calcium, potassium, and iron. And…they’re in this smoothie!

Kiwi Strawberry Twist Green Smoothie - loaded with vitamin C and other immune-boosting ingredients | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com

By themselves the flavor of the dandelion greens can be a bit overwhelming. We combine them with kale in this kiwi strawberry green smoothie, but feel free to alter the amounts to suit your personal tastes. Pairing the dandelion greens with spinach first might be a good first step if you’re still a beginner or a teensy bit scared – no judgment from us!

This kiwi strawberry green smoothie is also LOADED with vitamin C. The kiwi and strawberry have even more “C” thank the citrus. #themoreyouknow

Sip up to give your immune system a boost!

  2. Jean-Marc Beaudoin says:

    Has the nose goes first I smell the kale after that the orange is the major, mix with strawberries everything goes well. I like it.

  3. Brianna says:

    I’m going to give this a go with my junior Girl Scout troop working on a cooking badge! My girls aren’t veggie fans so this will be a fun way to show them how to sneak things in!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hey Brianna,

      Ahhh love that idea! Let us know how they like it and if you can convince them to give veggies a chance. 🙂

  4. Roberta says:

    Yummy.doesn’t really taste too green
    I’ll make is again
    Now the test is will my husband and son like it
    They’re both wicked picky

  5. Debbie says:

    Made this and loved it, though we all said, “sour, but good!” The ingredients don’t call for water, but the blending instructions mention water. Is it supposed to be one cup orange juice and one cup water maybe?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jen says:

      Nice catch Debbie— it was a typo. It’s def 2 cups orange juice to try and sweeten it up but still retain that kiwi punch. Glad you guys liked it!

    I suddenly can’t wait until the dandelions start to grow– its a twofer: 1. My preschool age son can pick them, and 2. I can actually USE part of it! THANK YOU!
