Ready in 5 minutes, this sunshine yellow kiwi mango smoothie is super creamy, filling, and high in vitamin C. Healthy and delicious, it’s the perfect way to start your day.
When the last of late winter and spring colds going around, smoothies are perfect for getting a large dose of vitamin C, potassium, and other immune-boosting nutrients. I love using fresh fruit in my smoothies, especially as we enter spring. You still have the last of the winter citrus and kiwis in the markets, but also start seeing some of the warm weather flavors.
For this smoothie, it is best to use well-ripened kiwis. Unripe kiwi is very tart and will affect the smoothie. To determine if your kiwi is ripe you can give it a gentle squeeze and if it gives slightly then it is ready. You shouldn’t have to squeeze it hard, just a little bit. Really soft kiwi is overripe and can taste a little fermented. It is still usable for things like smoothies, but the flavor isn’t perfect.
In this smoothie I used yellow kiwi. Gold kiwifruit, in contrast, has smooth, hairless skin that’s a nice golden-brown color. Slicing the fruit in half reveals even more differences. Green kiwifruit has, as one would expect, a green flesh with black seeds. The flesh of our golden kiwifruit is a vibrant yellow color with a smaller core and fewer seeds.
