Today morning I woke up and had this strong feeling against cooking an elaborate breakfast. Around 9 O’ clock, the hunger pang reminded me of the breakfast. For 5 minutes I was standing in front of the fridge with doors open thinking what can be the best option for the quick and healthy breakfast. Meanwhile, the pug was enjoying the cool breeze coming out of the fridge. I saw one kiwi fruit and some strawberries, the idea of Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie Recipe struck me, no cooking just blending and you are energized for the day.
Kiwifruit is native to southern China where it has been declared a National Fruit of China. Last summer when I visited Hong Kong I tasted one of the best kiwis in my life, so fresh, so sweet with a slight taste of tanginess. In India, kiwis are now readily available in most of the supermarkets even small fruit vendors has kiwis for sale. Try pick kiwifruits that are unblemished and firm but not rock hard. The flesh should yield to gentle pressure, similar to that of a ripe peach. Avoid those that are shriveled, moldy or have soft spots. If kiwifruit is stored in a zip lock plastic bag in the fridge it can last up to 15 days.
