Not so long ago,
I had never yet tried golden kiwis! Can you believe that? Well that’s the past as the minute I tried these golden, creamy and luscious kiwis there was no turning back on them! Boy, do they pack some sugar and take the craving out of the day when sugar is on your mind! They are sweet with a touch of honeysuckle to them. They even have hints of lemon and Mango! There is no other way I can describe them.
I had also come to know that these amazing fruits are super good for you, they have antioxidants, anti-ageing, anti cancerous properties among the many vitamins and nutrients!
There are of course many ways you can use golden kiwis. Apart from as is, and in fruit salads, you can always make sweet/savoury kiwi salsa which you can serve as a relish to cakes or (the savoury one) with think seared tuna for instance or a even a steak! Here, I have gone with a sweet kiwi salsa and a whipped, sweetened cream cheese, where I also folded in some kiwis in the whipped cream cheese. I had served them with buttermilk pancakes (recipe on this link) and on another occasion with vanilla crepes (recipe on this link). They turned out delicious. I even filled hollowed out kiwi skins with the folded kiwi in whipped cream cheese, garnished with strawberry wafers and mint and served it as a light dessert, which everybody loved!
Finally, this whipped cream cheese, also makes a perfect filling for cheesecake or fruit tarts! So instead of the classic cream filling, you can use this one instead and infuse any flavours in the same way as I have done with the Kiwis.
Here is how I made the kiwi salsa and the whipped sweetened cream cheese…
