This cool and refreshing kiwi cucumber lime smoothie will keep you full for a long time. It's packed with fiber and protein to keep you feeling satisfied. Find the recipe on BetterMeforLife.comIf you’re looking for a light and refreshing smoothie to help cool you down this summer, you’re going to want to try this kiwi cucumber lime smoothie.

But don’t let this smoothie’s refreshing taste fool you – it’s packed with fiber and protein to help keep you feeling full. This means it will fuel you through a busy morning or a hard workout. Or, of course, a tough day of sitting outside in the sun soaking up the rays.

Aaaahhhh. Summer.

I really do hope you’ve had a chance to sit, relax, and enjoy it.

Kiwis and cucumbers release a lot of liquid when blended. I added bean as a thickener (I love beans in smoothies. They add a LOT of fiber and protein). If you don’t want to use beans, you can always add chia seeds, flaxseeds, or even rolled oats to help thicken it.

Adding protein powder is also a great way to help thicken smoothies and makes your smoothie more satisfying, helping with weight loss.

Health Benefits

Kiwi

Kiwis are packed with more vitamin C than the equivalent amount of orange and are loaded with vitamin K. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals and helps support the immune system. Kiwis are a good source of the mineral potassium.

Kiwis also contain a good amount of dietary fiber. Fiber is helpful in keeping blood sugar levels under control and for keeping you feeling full for longer.

Cucumber

Cucumbers are loaded with phytonutrients that provide us with valuable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. They contain the antioxidant nutrients vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese.

Lime

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.

Bean

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.
