Following its debut as the darling of upscale chefs, the kiwifruit – a great source of vitamin C, fibre and potassium – has become a popular snack fruit.

I needed enough for at least 12 people and couldn't get enough kiwi on short notice, so I modified it by using a mix of kiwi, strawberries and blueberries. Absolutely wonderful! The only change I would make in the future is to add the strawberries immediately before serving, because the strawberries in the juice discolor the kiwi. (I may try it sometime with only kiwi and blueberries…) Amazingly delicious! - 14 Apr 2014


This was good. Definitely a 5 for ease. I served it up to guests as I had been given a lot of kiwi fruit. It went down really well. They all loved it & raved. When I told them how easy it was they raved even more & wanted the recipe. They all gave it a 4. - 08 Sep 2009
