Kiwi Smoothie – Weight Loss Recipe | How to Make It

The kiwi shake to lose weight that I am going to show you today I use regularly in my diet, since it is a very healthy recipe for all the properties that kiwi provides. In addition, I have selected some ingredients that will be great for you if you are thinking about dieting.

As a general rule, this fruit is not consumed as commonly as others (it is not liked by many). We all prefer a delicious strawberry smoothie , but I assure you that you will not regret including this wonderful recipe in your diet.

If you accompany me to the end, I am sure that you will give this fantastic fruit a chance and your health will thank you.

Kiwi smoothie to lose weight

The kiwi or kivi is originally from China ( Actinidia delicious is its plant), but nowadays it is cultivated and consumed in many countries on a regular basis. And it is not surprising, since this fruit is very low in calories, provides a lot of fiber and is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

For today’s recipe I have chosen some ingredients that apart from being very beneficial for your health will help you lose weight in a healthy way .

Ingredients of this green juice

  • 2 kiwis, peeled
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 glass of soy milk (you can also use water)
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (if you don’t like honey, use another type of sweetener)
  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds (superfood of the good ones)

Preparation of the Slimming Kiwi Smoothie

  • Add a glass of soy milk to the mixer.
  • Peel the kiwis, cut them into small pieces and add them to the milk.
  • Wash the spinach and put them in the blender.
  • Finally, we add the honey and chia seeds.
  • Beat until smooth and ready to serve!

A little tip : Before adding the chia seeds to the blender, let them soak in a glass of water for 30 minutes. Due to the soluble fiber in chia and its absorption capacity, after half an hour, it will look like a kind of gel or jelly. It is the ideal way to take them in your kiwi smoothie.

Kiwi smoothie benefits

This kiwi smoothie is great for cleansing diets and to aid digestion.

Natural foods are the best option if you want to lose weight in a healthy way , since they do not cause side effects and apart from this, you will be taking care of your health, since they provide you with a quantity of vitamins and nutrients.

Next I will tell you about the benefits of kiwi and chia seeds .

Kiwi Properties for Weight loss

As I have told you before, kiwi has slimming properties and many others. Let’s see what they are:

  • It has a high fiber content , so if you suffer from habitual constipation it will be great for you. Its cleansing and detoxifying properties will help you eliminate toxins from your body. In addition, having so much fiber will produce a satiating effect .
  • Kiwi has very few calories (only 61 calories per 100 grams). This means that it has negative calories, that is, you will be expending more calories than you are taking in. Ideal for weight loss.
  • It is one of the fruits with the highest concentration of vitamin C (it has more than 120% of the recommended daily amount). This fruit, given its high concentration of vitamin C, is ideal for fighting stress and anxiety . Do you have a job interview or an event that makes you feel nervous ? Have a kiwi smoothie before you go. You will thank me.
  • It is one of the few fruits that contains vitamin E , so it will protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. In this way, you fight premature aging of the skin.
  • They are rich in potassium , even more than banana.

Chia Seeds Properties

I have to admit that I am in love  with chia seeds .

They are a superfood that has a lot of nutritional benefits, but today I will talk about why you should use them in your weight loss diet, since chia has many properties to lose weight.

  • Satiating and anti-anxiety effect . Each chia seed absorbs up to nine times its weight in water, making it a very satiating ingredient, making it ideal for weight loss .
  • High fiber content . Its high amount of fiber content (25 grams provide us with approximately 10 grams of fiber) helps you maintain a regular intestinal transit. You should take a maximum of 25 grams of chia per day, which would be like a tablespoon.
  • It reduces cholesterol and helps maintain blood sugar levels , making it ideal for diabetics.
  • Rich in omega-3 fatty acids , so it will help you fight cellulite and prevent premature aging .
  • It does not contain gluten , it is very rich in minerals such as calcium and iron, it favors digestion and gives us energy

These are some of its benefits for your health, but I want to dedicate an entire article to chia seeds, since all the properties it has are multiple.
