Superfood Kiwi Green Smoothie

This Superfood Kiwi Green Smoothie is a delicious way to get extra nutrients for breakfast or a healthy snack.

I started drinking green smoothies back in 2013. It’s a great way to get a ton of healthy nutrients into your body first thing in the morning. Early in 2015, K and I finished a “no added sugar” and daily green smoothie challenge, and he joined me in my love of green smoothies.

We are also working on a 60 day “No Added Sugar Challenge” right now, that ends in a few weeks. As part of this, we have been looking into adding more nutritious foods into our daily meals. K reviewed Dr. Furhman’s Aggregate Nutrient Density Index last week, which gives a score to the most nutrient rich foods. For greens, kale and collard greens are at the top of the list.

This smoothie includes both kale and collard greens, as well as a few more healthy ingredients:

*Carrot
*Banana
*Mango
*Kiwi
*Cilantro

I promise, you can’t taste the cilantro! Kiwi is the star of this smoothie, a fruit that is considered one of the most nutrient-dense {source}.

Try one!
