Green,raw and naked or kiwi’s galore to store

I just got my hands on 2 huuuge crates of kiwi’s from my local fruit-dealer.
Yes!
A great budget deal,since it’s a bulk buy and also kiwis were soft-ish and not picture perfect.
Here is what I did to them,after 2 hours of slavery in the kitchen.

Here are the naked,peeled sweeties,ready to be popped in my freezer.Divided in individual plastic bags,they will last roughly till october.They are a nice addition to my daily green creation.Since I don’t put water in my green smoothie,I need some high watery fruit to add instead,so my blender doesn’t explode and blends without stuttering.Here is why you should include this ”sunny peach”(the original name for kiwis),in your raw food life:
