A healthy Kiwi Parfait with Greek Yogurt, lime zest, and your favorite sweetener. You'll have a delicious breakfast ready in 10 minutes or less!
Kiwi season is in full swing and we need to take advantage of this fuzzy brown fruit that is a great source of fiber and vitamin C! I'm all about eating healthy year round but especially during the cold weather since our immune system tends to go down. Pair the sweet yet sharp flavor with other fruits such as bananas, berries and even in a salsa to serve alongside spicy dishes. I bet you didn't think about that one 🙂
How do you know when the kiwi is ready to eat? It should be firm but yielding when gently squeezed. If it needs more ripening, try putting it in a paper bag with a banana to speed up the process. Just like you do with an avocado!
Most of the time I eat the same breakfast everyday but once in a while I like to change this up and that's when I eat parfaits or protein pancakes. I'm so predictable!
