You may not know this but I am a big fan of kiwifruit. Going so far as to have one tattooed on my leg! It might have been a “souvenir” from my travels in New Zealand but let’s just say it’s a tribute to this magnificent little fruit!
I think we are all familiar with regular green kiwifruit, but I am super into golden kiwifruit! My favourite, Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit have a delicious subtle kiwi flavour and they are packed with Vitamin C and E as well as potassium and fibre. Yay for nature’s candy! Golden kiwifruit are less ‘furry’ on the outside than green kiwifruit and they are aromatic, sweet and have a subtle tanginess.
I love using kiwifruit in a variety of dishes from breakfast smoothies to eye-catching layered parfaits and yummy desserts. Of course you can keep things simple, too. These kiwifruit make a perfect portable healthy snack. Just cut and scoop and enjoy the sweet and tangy flavour – couldn’t be easier!
I decided to try a new take on a classic frozen margarita by adding my new summertime favourite, Zespri SunGold kiwifruit! I love the subtle sweetness tropical flavour they offer to this beverage.
Zespri SunGold Kiwi-Lime Margarita (makes 3 margaritas)
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1/2 cup tequila
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 4 Zesprit SunGold kiwifruit, peeled
- 1 tablespoon sugar (*I used coconut sugar)
- 2 cups ice
Combine all ingredients except ice in a blender and process smooth. Add ice and blend until a slushy consistency is reached. Enjoy on a sunny patio!
Look for these absolutely delicious Zespri Sungold Kiwifruit in your local grocery store from May to October. You don’t want to miss out on these beautiful golden kiwifruits!
