Halloween Frankenstein


This is my 4th day NZ Zespri kiwi challenge. Today's challenge call it Fun learning, whereby I did learn on Zespri Green kiwifruit fact. At first, I really thought Kiwi is full of Vitamin C, but also it is full of actinidin (an enzyme that helps with protein digestion) and fiber. They are essential to help promote healthy digestive system. 

Well, put learning aside, I want to make it to appear to be fun too (not saying that their current hairy look is ugly)! I am glad that  I found an idea to transform this healthy kiwifruits into Frankenstein, it is not only easy to make but also absolutely healthier snack for Halloween Party. This will definitely bring WOW factor to your guest :)

Kids, they're sure loving them too. All these are edible and let's have fun in making them together with your kids.



Here is how Hankerie make the dull looking green kiwi into fantastic Frankenstein for Halloween

Ingredients

1 green kiwi fruits
few coloured fondant icing
Edible Black ink pen

Method
  1. Trim one bottom side of the green kiwifruit.
  2. Peel the skin off at the side that you want the squarish part as front.
  3. Cut off both side to look more squarish.
  4. Stick all the rolled fondant to represent Frankenstein eyes, mouth and ears.
  5. Lastly, use edible pen to draw stitches.
  6. Done for Halloween party!

            Choco Kiwi Mousse Cake


            2nd day of my NZ Zespri kiwi challenge. Today's theme is "Perfect picture", Despite taking a selfie with kiwifruits, I also make my perfect picture recipe today - my favorite Choco Kiwi Mousse Cake, topping with fresh green kiwifruits. Tantalizing my sweet tooth.


            The whole idea of this cake is to combine a little bit bitter sweet chocolate cake with refreshing green kiwifruits. Of course, with yogurt as part of my mousse ingredient, making this dessert lesser guilt. I call it Lite Mousse cake. If you would like the total guilt free mousse cake, you may substitute the whip cream into yogurt and mix with some low fat milk to an extend of 75-15 percentage.

            Especially for those weight watcher, enjoy this wonderful dessert.

            1 TBSP cocoa powder
            1/2 TSP baking powder
            1/2 TSP vanilla essence/ or you can use vanilla pod

            2 green kiwifruit, hulled
            1 TBSP lemon juice
            75g caster sugar
            4 leaves gelatine, softened in cold water (or use 4 TSP powdered)
            250ml plain yogurt
            284ml whip cream

            For cake decoration:
            1 green kiwifruit- cut into cubes

            Method

            2. Trim the cake into square. Set aside.
            3. Place the green kiwifruits (dig out the seed first) and lemon juice in a blender and puree until smooth. After that mashed the kiwi fruit seed and mix together with the puree.
            4. Gently heat the puree and sugar in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat. Squeeze the excess water from the soaked gelatine leaves and add them to the kiwifruit mixture. Stir well until dissolved, then cool.
            5. When cold, whisk in the yogurt. Whip the cream until thick and fold into the kiwifruit mixture.

                      Homemade Kiwifruits Banana Ice Cream (Healthy version)


                      Today is the day again. Still vividly remember my last year participation on NZ Zespri Kiwifruits 14 days challenges. Well, let me share with you my very first challenge recipe today - I call it healthy version of homemade kiwifruits Banana ice cream.

                      Considering that it does not contain even single scope of cream in it, this made for a very decent, guilt-free ice 'cream'. It'll be a much welcomes addition to the kiddo's breakfast table, perhaps you may think no way man ice cream for breakfast?

                      In addition, I do not have any home use or commercial ice cream machine, what I need is only 3 key ingredients, a blender and a fridge. That's all, as easy as that. Strongly believe that everyone of you can make it at home too :)
