Easy Banana And Kiwi Smoothie

I had some popular questions from my smoothie community on Instagram when I shared the recipe.

If you have any questions too, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below!

I Don't Have a Blender - What Can I Use Instead?

If you don't have a blender, you can use a Nutribullet or a food processor. Alternatively, use a hand blender, and process the ingredients in a jug.

What Can I Use Instead Of Coconut Water?

You can use coconut milk from a carton, or almond milk, as well as oat milk. I do recommend that you use coconut water if you can though!

How Do I Add More Sweetness To The Smoothie?

You can add a teaspoon of honey or agave. For sugar-free sweetening, use stevia or monkfruit sweetener.
