Benefits of Kiwi and Chia

Kiwi is an amazing fruit. A kiwi can help with digestion, boost your immune system, and help prevent blood from clotting.

Chia seeds are high in soluble and insoluble fiber, omega 3 and protein. The added wheat grass powder is very high in chlorophyll and spinach gives you a nice boost of essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

Top that all off with some delicious almond milk and bananas for a touch of sweetness and you’ve got a delicious superfood packed smoothie for breakfast or lunch!

For this recipe, maca powder is optional. It’s a very strong root that can have a positive impact on mood, energy and overall well being. It is a delicious and healthy alternative to caffeine. Keep in mind, you shouldn’t use more than 1 teaspoon of maca powder.
