Baby kiwi are actually a berry and are bit smaller than the size of an average grape.
They have smooth, fuzz-less, eatable, thin skin, and are absolutely delicious. (And did I mention cute?)
Though more delicate, the sweet and tart flavor is like that of it’s cousin, the larger, brown-skinned kiwi.
While I love popping these cuties right in my mouth for a yummy, energizing snack, it’s a must must to slice them first — to see their inner beauty, of course. They make for a great snack on their own and they’re divine in salads.
I especially love them with yogurt and granola, so I put the three together for a super tasty breakfast or brunch.
Melissa’s Produce sends me samples of baby kiwi when their season begins — thank you!
Last year when I received them, I made this cheesecake with them.

Baby Kiwi Parfait Recipe is delicious, healthy, and a lovely way to show off the beautiful fruit. It's a great breakfast, lunch or snack.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the yogurt with the kiwi pulp, honey, and vanilla. (To make the kiwi pulp -- peel each kiwi and then on a clean cutting surface, finely chop them until you have super tiny pieces. Press them with the bottom of a fork to "purée" them further and to extract more juice.)
Set aside 2 (approximately 12-ounce), clear glasses or jars.
Use about 12 baby kiwi halves to make the bottom layer in each glass or jar. (See bottom notes!)
Then add 2 tablespoons of the granola on top of the baby kiwi, in each one.
Follow the granola with about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, in each one.
Repeat this twice more, and then finish the baby kiwi.
This recipe is for pretty generous portions -- you could certainly make smaller portions by using smaller glasses or jars, and dividing the ingredients accordingly.
Use any granola you'd like to -- one with honey is lovely with the kiwi.
*This is important! Part of my job is making food look beautiful. I took the time to place each baby kiwi half with its interior facing out, lined up as perfectly as possible. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT! I happen to love spending my time doing this sort of thing (especially for guests), but I realize I'm not the norm. You can make your layers any which way you want to -- you can even just throw it all together in a bowl. It will still be delicious! Promise!
