Highlights
  • All the weight loss smoothies must contain fruits that are rich in fibre
  • Kiwi is known to boost digestion naturally

Weight loss and fruits have always shared a very healthy relation. Brimming with essential nutrients that also give our skin, hair, bones, and heart a healthy boost, fruits smoothies literally require no prep work. But it's not just any fruit smoothie that will help achieve your weight loss goals; a lot depends on what fruit you include in your smoothie and how you make it. All the weight loss smoothies must contain fruits that are rich in fibre, good carbs, and antioxidants. With these weight-loss-friendly smoothies, we will have something to satisfy every craving - from a delicious hearty breakfast to yummy pancakes. That's not it! You may also find muscle-building protein, good fats, and digestion-boosting fibre in every sip you take.

But can you really lose weight with fruit smoothies or shakes? The answer is yes! Fruit-based smoothies are better than the powdered-shakes. Moreover, one is not sure of what goes inside these protein powdered-shakes - from taste-enhancers to artificial preservatives that are, of course, not good for our health. So, ditch all the store-bought products and include more fruit smoothies or shakes in your diet, and the best part is that there is enough room to experiment with fruit smoothies. You can throw in your favourite fruits, in fact, veggies of your choice and pair it with protein-rich milk like almond milk and soya milk. One such fruit smoothie is kiwi smoothie.

Famous YouTuber Alpa Modi has shared an easy-peasy recipe of Kiwi Smoothie on her channel 'Something's Cooking With Alpa'. The best part of this smoothie is that other than kiwi, Alpa has added other healthy ingredients too like berries, banana and almond milk.

Why Kiwi Smoothie Is Good For Weight Loss:

Kiwi is known to boost digestion naturally. The tarty fruit contains an enzyme called actinidain, which helps improving digestion of proteins in the body. A good digestion is key to healthy weight loss. Strawberries are low in calorie count. Hundred grams serving of strawberries has 33 calories. Bananas have a low to medium glycaemic index and are high in fibre, which keeps you satiated for long. Lastly, almond milk is a good source of protein and has fewer calories as compared to cow milk.

So, without further delay, here's the recipe of kiwi smoothie for weight loss:
