What better way to kick off spring than with blueberries and kiwi in this blueberry kiwi mint smoothie?

Well, okay, maybe there are better and more symbolic ways to welcome in spring. Like going out for a walk outside or planting flowers. But you have to eat, right? This sweet and refreshing blueberry kiwi mint smoothie is a great way to, well, taste spring.

This smoothie is thick, creamy, sweet and loaded with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunity health benefits. It’s also packed with fiber which is important for weight loss (helps keep you feeling full for longer), blood sugar regulation, and colon health.

I added beans to this recipe as a thickener, and for an added fiber and protein boost. You can leave them out if you prefer.

Health Benefits

Blueberries are loaded with vitamin K, manganese, vitamin C and fiber. They are often ranked as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings. In addition to their amazing antioxidant benefits, they also are high in cardiovascular, cognitive and eye health benefits.

Kiwis are packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange and loaded with vitamin K. They are also a very good source of fiber. Kiwis have many health benefits, including: anti-inflammatory; antioxidant; heart health; immunity; anti-aging, skin, eye, and hair; cleanse/detox; weight management; energy; blood sugar regulation; colon health.

Limes are a moderately good source of vitamin C. They are packed with health benefits including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, digestion, energy boost, immunity boost, mental boost, and cleanse/detox.

In addition to having a wonderful smell and flavor spearmint contains vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. It also has many health benefits attributed to it including heart health, immunity, digestion, energy, and relaxation/stress reduction.

Beans are loaded with protein and fiber making them beneficial for the digestive tract, blood sugar regulation, and cardiovascular system. The amount of protein and fiber per serving varies on the type of bean. Any of the “small” beans (small white, small red, black, red kidney beans) will give you about 14 grams of fiber and 8 grams of fiber per cup – at only 70 calories. That’s about half the daily recommendation of fiber for women.
