Tropical Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit Smoothie

In partnership with Zespri Kiwifruit.


If you closed your eyes, you’d be much more likely to think you’re sipping a piña colada than a spinach and SunGold Kiwifruit-packed, bright green smoothie. It’s easy to get into a banana berry smoothie rut, but this recipe makes sure that won’t happen. For a fun tropical flavor, a creamy consistency, and a variety of nutrients, this smoothie combo is definitely one to add to your rotation. Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit tastes like a cross between a strawberry and a mango and is complemented here perfectly by just a touch of fresh pineapple.

If you want to make it more creative, halve and scoop the kiwifruit, saving the skin to use as mini smoothie shooters. Your kids will love them.


  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 2 Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit, halved and scooped
  • ½ cup cubed pineapple
  • ½ avocado, frozen
  • 1 cup coconut milk


  • Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender until smooth and enjoy!


This smoothie is the perfect, balanced combination for breakfast. It packs the right amount of vitamin C, protein, fiber, and carbohydrate to both satiate you through the morning and fuel your body and mind. Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is an excellent source of vitamin C, providing 290% of the recommended daily value per serving (2 kiwifruit). Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant in your body, fighting inflammation and supporting your immune system. Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit also has the highest vitamin C content in commonly eaten fruit. Happy sipping!
