These kiwi mojito smoothies are light, refreshing, and a little frothy, with a distinct texture from the creamy bananas and seedy kiwi. But the best part is, you don’t need any dairy alternatives or any sweeteners of any kind to make this recipe. It’s a pure fruit and herb concoction, that can even be made without any packages – if you have fresh oranges on hand.
These Kiwi Mojito Smoothies are Fruitful, Plant-Based Blends
Like most smoothie recipes, you can certainly modify it to taste. Here are some suggestions if you want to play around with the formula or have additional dietary needs.
- Orange juice has been shown in studies to support bone health. But if you’re worried about your calcium intake, you can use a calcium-fortified orange juice.
- Or, for a sweeter hit, you can substitute tangerine juice for the orange juice.
- If you don’t like bananas, you can substitute mango or pineapple for a different flavor twist. Or simply omit the bananas, and add liquid and ice as needed. It will be a lighter, cooler smoothie.
