Is Kiwi Quencher Healthy?

The kiwi quencher at Tropical smoothie isn’t necessarily a healthy smoothie, but if you had to choose between a soda or a kiwi quencher, the Quencher smoothie is much healthier.

The problem with the smoothie is the fact that it’s high in sugar and calories. 

Although Tropical Smoothie uses fresh fruit, their smoothies often contain fruit concentrates, which are not healthy.

Nevertheless, their smoothies do contain some benefits. So don’t write them off.

But it’s always good to make your own smoothies at home, and this is why today I have a copycat recipe of Tropical Smoothie Cafe kiwi smoothie.

Homemade isn’t just cheaper, it’s healthier too!
