Kickstart your day with these kiwi-infused recipes


Start your mornings with some Zespri kiwi goodness

Zespri kiwi x Violet Oon

I’ve had kiwi fruits appear in my salads for a tangy touch, and occasionally, cameo appearances on a fruit cake; but rarely do they become the star of a dish.

And Zespri, the world’s largest marketer for premium kiwifruits, is set to change that. They’ve teamed up with Peranakan cooking doyenne, Violet Oon of Violet Oon Singapore to create three unique kiwifruit-based breakfast recipes.

Making use of gula melaka and dried chilli as well as other common local spices such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg powder, Violet Oon gives the recipes a unique yet familiar twist to the usual breakfast spread.

These three recipes are fuss-free, easy-to-follow and can all be prepared under 30 minutes, giving you a meal that’s bursting with health and flavour.

Zespri Green Kiwifruit Gula Melaka Sauce

Zespri Green Kiwifruit Gula Melaka Sauce (served with Waffles)

Forget about caramelised bananas, how about some delicious kiwi sauce on your waffle?

If you’re up bright and early, perhaps its time to indulge in some pancakes, french toasts or waffles — best topped with some Zespri Green Kiwifruit Gula Melaka Sauce.

The cooking process renders the kiwis tender and slightly caramelised, allowing it to meld nicely with the shaved gula melaka. With a touch of spice from cinnamon, nutmeg, clove as well as some refreshing orange juice in the sauce, you’ll be digging into the most satisfying breakfast yet.
