Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit

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!

kiwi tattooI 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.

Zespri SunGold KiwifruitI 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 kiwifruitย 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.
