3 fun ways to add more kiwi to your diet, with recipes and eating right from the kiwi! #ad #WanderWithZespri #ZespriSunGoldKiwifruit #Zespri #sweepstakes

One of our favorite summer adventures is to try new things.

And that could mean a lot of things – new roller coasters, new cities, summer reading challenges, new games, new skills, and of course, new foods. I remember my first time eating kiwi! I was just a little kid and my sister was already a fan. It was the green kind and it was in a fruit salad that my grandmother had made. She had made a rainbow of colors in there and kiwi was new to me. I loved the flavor – then new to me – and I loved that my kids tried it for the first time this summer vacation! They were instant fans, so we got creative with this new favorite.

3 Fun Ways to Add More Kiwi To Your Diet:

Make a smoothie!

This is truly one of our favorite ways to eat kiwi. Take 2 Zespri SunGold Kiwifruits, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 container of yogurt (plain, vanilla, or strawberry), 1/2 cup milk, and 2 Tbsp honey. Peel and cut the kiwi into chunks, and put all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth. If needed, use the Pulse setting for the strawberries. And serve with straws!

Add kiwifruit to your fruit crisp!

We love a good fruit crisp! We picked a bunch of strawberries for Father’s Day and made a great crisp! Here’s what you do:

What You Need:

5 cups strawberries, diced
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp granulated sugar
3 Tbsp flour
1 cup flour
¾ cup brown sugar
10 Tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
¾ cup rolled oats
Kiwifruit for topping

What You Do:

1 – First, preheat oven to 350 degrees

2 – Then, grease a 12-inch skillet or 9 inch baking dish

3 – Mix together strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, and the 3 Tbsp flour in a bowl

4 – Then combine 1 cup flour, brown sugar, and butter in a food processor and process until the mixture is crumbly

5 – Next, stir in the oats

6 – Spoon your strawberry mixture into your skillet or baking dish and crumble the crisp (flour, sugar, butter) mixture on top

7 – Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the berry mixture bubbles

8 – Serve with sliced kiwifruit on top and ice cream or whipped topping

  1. I have always loved kiwis from the time I was a young girl. Actually my dad was the one who got me to try them. So, I have to admit I pretty much love when they are in season and can buy them. Oh and I have totally added them to smoothies here. So, definitely agree with that tip and more here 🙂

  2. How did Scarlet grow up so fast? We sure love kiwi fruit. I wasn’t so sure the first time I ate it as a little girl, but now I love them and have passed that love onto my kiddos 🙂
