You’re thinking cucumber I know, but it’s far from it… Meet Feijoa. A New Zealand fruit so sweet that you could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The fruit has good levels of Vitamin C and dietary fibre. One fruit will provide 23% of an adult’s daily need. It’s Feijoa season now and we are buying bulks of it!
The uses for Feijoas are numerous from simply eating fresh through to bottling the tasty bottle of wine. They can be added to fresh fruit salads cooked in puddings and are scrumptious in cakes. The fruit is not the only delicacy of this plant – the showy bright red flowers add life to salads or chocolate log.
This is my breakfast with my Raw Grawnola, Coconut yoghurt and of course Feijoas.
