I love kiwis in my smoothies. They give it such a lift and make it burst with flavor.

Cholesterol levels will benefit from this tasty smoothie as the soluble fiber in the oats can help reduce it. And your heart will benefit from the reduction in cholesterol. There are also good levels of potassium which will help reduce blood pressure and are also helpful to kidney function. And then there is ginger to boost and soothe your digestion.

As this smoothie is under 300 calories there is room, if you wish, to add 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for some healthy fat and an extra boost of protein. Along with the oats this make it good and filling, keeping you satisfied till lunch.

The recipe comes from Howie at HurryTheFoodUp. Howie says …

… there’s no excuse for not trying this quick and spicy kiwi breakfast smoothie – it’s absolutely rammed with vitamin C and is high in calcium, fiber, protein, iron and potassium.
