Smoothies are a common go-to in our house when we want to use up leftover (or expiring) fruit. They are also a great addition to breakfast or lunch for the whole family. These Kiwi smoothies are no exception. Chock full of pineapple, kiwi and banana, this is not only filling but a healthy choice as well!

How to Make a Kiwi Smoothie
For this recipe, you’ll need pineapple – which you can get pre-chopped, frozen or chop it fresh yourself – frozen banana, 5-6 ripe kiwis and your milk of choice. In my instance, we used Almond milk as the kids have allergies to lactose and prefer it.
Combine these ingredients in your blender following the recipe card below, and serve up in two large hurricane style glasses (or whatever you can find that will work) and serve!
Sweetening your Smoothie to taste
When it comes to sweetening these smoothies, it depends on a few factors. Normally, kiwi is quite sweet to begin with and once you add in the frozen banana you will want to try the final product before you add any kind of sugar or honey to sweeten. The riper the banana was before freezing, the sweeter your drink will typically be. I tend to use honey as a sweetener because it’s nor granular and won’t leave any crunchiness to the drink. It’s also far healthier than straight sugar.
Blend everything together first, then if you feel you need a sweetener added, do 1 tbsp of honey and retry until you reach the desired level of sweetness.
Hope you enjoy!
