Having Kiwi fruit has many health benefits in the month of Ramadan since fasting can also lead to increased acidity levels, which might lead to indigestion.The actinidin contained in kiwi fruits can also help aid in the digestion of foods that are of dairy, meat and legume source hence I prefer to have this fruit but normally they are little sour in taste , so I don’t enjoy them much. Yesterday I found the Kiwi’s at home were little ripe.I just didn’t wanted to discard them off , I thought of preparing its milkshake but with Banana and to my surprise I discovered Kiwi and bananas go together very well.

So If you have super-ripe and sweet bananas that are either fresh or frozen and your Kiwis have ripened so that they are quite sweet too, instead of super-tangy, then combine the two together in a blender this is what you get – a truly healthy sweet milkshake .. Click here for recipe..
