This refreshing smoothie packs some pretty powerful and delicious ingredients.
Apples are an incredible antioxidant as well as a great source of fiber. Apples have also been shown to whiten teeth, decrease risks of diabetes, lower cholesterol, aid in both constipation and diarrhea, and keep your heart healthy.
Containing more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange, the kiwi is a small fruit that packs a wallop of nutrition. Kiwi has also been liked to reducing the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol. The fiber found in kiwis supports bone and connective tissue, balances the microorganisms in our digestive track, and regulates blood sugar.
