Eat your way to healthy skin with this Kiwifruit Trifle recipe. Yum!

Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit Chia Trifle   

 The SunGold Kiwi Chia Trifle combines this nutrient dense kiwifruit with the protein rich chia seeds. A nourishing, revitalising breakfast or the perfect snack at any time.

This trifle is packed full of fruit and the nutritionally rich chia seeds. Add that to a complete protein seed like chia and you’ve got a nourishing, nutritionally dense breakfast or anytime snack.

The chia seed belongs to the mint family and helps repair the mucous membranes of the intestinal wall that may be depleted due to ulceration and inflammation. It is a complete protein as it contains nine amino acids. When combined with golden kiwifrut the nutrient value sky-rockets with all the goodness of vitamin C. A great start to the day.
