there it is everyone.
Kiwi berry is a species within the Actinidia family. It’s a natural berry (not genetically engineered in a lab) and is rich in Vitamin C, high in fiber and a great source of potassium, vitamin E and magnesium.
When eaten unripe, they are a little on the sour “candy” side and a little crunchy/hard. They ripen fast, get soft and darker and get really sweet: kinda like kiwi flavored grapes. To extend their shelf life, keep them refrigerated: they typically last from 5-10 days in the fridge once ripe.
They’re awesome in fruit salads, as a snack on their own and can be added to pretty much any recipe that calls for fruit. I also like them frozen and used as ice cubes in my favorite drinks.
Plus… they’re adorable. You don’t get much cuter than tiny kiwis. :)
Because—now I know this will come as a shock—WOMEN EAT. We get hungry. We get hungry for pizzas and Double Stuf Oreos and nachos and ice cream and giant French-toast breakfasts, and you know what? WE DON’T NEED TO FEEL BAD ABOUT THAT.
