    Welcome Winter.  The fresh produce of Winter can seem a little dull when compared to the variety of stone fruit and berries that are abundant in Summer. This is really not the case as eating seasonal food allows you to enjoy an array of fruits and vegetables across the year.  There are also a few things such as the banana that we are fortunate enough to be able to access year round from far north Queensland.  

    Kiwi fruit is a feature of the winter months.  Did you know that the kiwi fruit is also known as Chinese Gooseberry?  The fruit is native to Yangtze Valley of China. During the 1950’s the fruit was renamed briefly to ‘melonette’, and New Zealand exporters changed it to ‘kiwifruit’. Seeds from China were taken to New Zealand and planted in 1906 and since then production of the fruit has grown significantly. In Australia Kiwi fruit are predominately grown Victorian.

    Kiwi fruit are high in vitamins C and have very good levels of Vitamins E and K.  They also contain minerals potassium, and iron and manganese. Kiwi fruit are also an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids

    Bananas contain soluble dietary fibre, vitamin b6, moderate vitamin c, as well as being a rich source of potassium .

    This Kiwi Banana Shake is a good way to boost your energy levels mid-morning.  It is quick and simple to make in the Bliz2Go, ready in just a minute.
