Poor kiwi.

It sits between the shiny red apples, plump blueberries, & ripe raspberries and totally gets ignored.

BIG.BIG.BIG. mistake.

This superfood has so many benefits I could write a novel. Here’s a few: there’s more potassium in a kiwi then a banana, one kiwi has more Vit C than an orange, the fruit repairs DNA, protects against cancer, contains tons of fiber, & decreases the risk of heart disease. Oh…& beauty-wise? It keeps hair, skin, teeth, & nails looking hot, sexy, & healthy. The furry fruit enhances energy levels too. Annnddd a hundred cals for two kiwis? I’m sold.

So. After watching The Dr. Oz Show I discovered a trick: puree your kiwi. Add about three ( make sure they’re skinned ) to a blender or food processor + a sprinkle of Stevia. Then pour over low fat Greek yogurt & you’ve got yourself the best snack/dessert evs. Other options: add kiwi to homemade salsa, veggie salads, or use it as jam on a piece of low carb toast.

On the exterior it’s an ugly ass fruit, but when it’s cut open the green goodness provides way too many benefits to pass up!

Love.L

    Great idea. I can’t stand greek yogurt but it’s so good for muscle building. This should jazz it up a lot!

    Great tip! I’m always looking for new ways to spice (or sweeten) up my Chobanis & kiwis are so delicious!
