This was the perfect quick, energizing lunch to share with my 9.5 month old baby. I am crazy about golden kiwi, in fact I think it’s my favorite fruit, having surpassed nectarines, cherries, and even berries. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of trying them, the flavor brings to mind what it must feel like to eat sunshine. I know, I know- it’s a bit maudlin to say that, but seriously, that’s what I thought (and still do) when I first tried one. They don’t have the sour/ slightly bitter flavor of green kiwi, instead they are gently, not overly sweet and very refreshing.  And they are very, very good for you.

Makes one large serving (or a medium and small serving)


1/3 cup orange (or other) juice
2 heaping tbs plain yogurt
1 small handful almonds
1 ripe banana
1 peeled, thickly sliced golden kiwi
1 cup blackberries
ice- optional, if you like a really frozen drink

Combine all ingredients in a large glass suitable for an immersion blender or in a regular blender jar. Blend to combine. Enjoy!
