Kiwi Banana Smoothie

Kiwi fruit provides an excellent source of vitamin C. It also offers a very good source of fiber. Kiwi contains decent amounts of vitamins A and E, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, and copper.Kiwi, like other vitamin C-rich foods, is especially important in promoting respiratory tract health. Studies have shown that kiwi and citrus are also effective against respiratory-related health problems including wheezing, shortness of breath, and high coughing. Kiwi is also rich in antioxidants and enzymes.The kiwifruit is a small fruit approximately 3 inches long and weighing about four ounces. Its green flesh is almost creamy in consistency with an excellent taste almost alike to strawberries, melons and bananas, yet with its own unique sweet flavor.Enjoying just a couple of kiwifruit each day may significantly lower your risk for blood clots and reduce the amount of fats (triglycerides) in your blood, therefore helping to protect cardiovascular health. Both kiwi n banana makes a wonderful, tasty, healthy smoothie for both kids n adults...
