Kiwi Coconut Shake Recipe



The essence of this shake is in the kiwi, which forms a great base for the shake. This is a fruit which is very low in calories and tastes great. Kiwifruit is rich in antioxidants and tastes great. Antioxidants are great for the body and help it to keep cholesterol levels down.

They also increase your cell’s regrowth rates. Coconut is good for the body, and you would love the way it keeps you full for hours to the end. This is a great way of storing some energy in your body and a great recipe for the times when you are tired after a workout and need an instant pick-me-up.

We will be using a light coconut milk for this recipe, and you can always add other kind of milk to it, like soy milk or almond milk, but the flavors imparted by coconut milk is really amazing. It will be great if you can add a scoopful of your favorite protein powder to it as well to fortify it. Chia seeds are added for a bit of extra fiber into your system.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kiwi, skinned and chopped
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/3rd cup crushed ice
  • Honey (if needed)
  • 1 handful chia seeds

Procedure:

Combine the chia seeds with the kiwi and blend at high speed for 1-2 minutes or until very smooth. Add the coconut milk, crushed ice and honey, if needed and blend again for 30 seconds more. Pour into a tall glass, or in two tall glasses, and serve cold, immediately.

You can skip the chia seeds and add a scoopful of protein powder to up the protein quotient, which would also keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. This is an easy shake for those who work out a lot.
