Kiwi Treats That Are Perfect for Summer

Kiwi Treats That Are Perfect for Summer

The kiwifruit, which is also known as the Chinese gooseberry, but has been shortened to kiwi is one of the most nutritious and refreshing fruits you can find in the market. It is so loaded with nutrients that only one serving of it already contains the same quantity of potassium as a banana, as much fiber as a bowlful of bran cereal and gives out the recommended dietary requirement of vitamin C. It also has zinc, folate, vitamin E, and lutein.

So, if you are looking for a new way to enjoy this fruit that is grown as a commercial crop in such countries as France, Italy, Greece, Chile, and New Zealand, we have some suggestions below:

Chocolate Kiwi Popsicles

Just slice some kiwis into one-inch thick circles, place a popsicle stick or toothpick in the middle, before dunking them into melted chocolate and you already have one refreshingly yummy summer treat. You can either hand them out immediately or place them in the freezer for later.

Or, you can forego using any kind of stick altogether and do it this way. You might like to have another bowl of melted chocolate at the ready, as you might like to dip your kiwi slices again after you take a bite of the chocolate-covered part.


You can also roll them on some unsweetened shredded coconut or any topping of your choice, just like this one from My Digital Kitchen.
