CREAMY KIWI BREAKFAST SMOUSSE
Recipe by Charissa & Co.
Yes, you read right, it is a “smousse”, my ultimate hybrid between a smoothie and a mousse. It is a tad bit too thick to use a straw, therefore a spoon is required.
The different flavours and textures with added crunchy goodness from the coconut crunch is the ultimate breakfast Smousse, not only delicious and chewy, but you are getting a good amount of quality protein along with added fiber.
I balanced the sweet and tangy flavour from the kiwi, by adding some creamy oat-milk as well as vanilla protein powder.
Kiwi fruit are full of nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. Vitamin K helps direct calcium where to go, therefore prevents calcium from building up in the arteries. Vit K also acts as a Co-factor when it comes to amino acid metabolism.
They also have a lot of antioxidants and are a good source when it comes to adding fiber to your morning routine.
Their small black seeds are edible, as is the fuzzy brown peel, but I do prefer them without the skin…
Fun fact: In addition to helping us manage our blood pressure, kiwis can actually reduce blood clotting.
A study from the University of Oslo found that eating two to three kiwis a day significantly lowered the risk of blood clotting.
They were also found to reduce the amount of fat in the blood. Researchers said that these effects were similar to those of a daily dose of aspirin to improve heart health.
