This kiwi crumble is unlike any crumble you’ve had before – made with gold kiwi, toasted coconut and cardamom, it’s bursting with tropical flavours you might as well be lounging by the beach, preferably under a coconut tree, most definitely not thinking of work.
I grew up in Manila where it’s summer approximately 300 days of the year so I love the heat and the sunshine. The Philippines is an archipelago too so you can get to a beach in an hour and enjoy the ocean breeze without much hassle (except of course the infamous Manila traffic).
I now live in Toronto where I’m always cold (I get teased about it all the time too!) so when summer rolls along, I am beside myself with glee.
Not your usual crumble
This kiwi crumble is everything I love about summer. It’s made with sunny, golden Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit – which is unique not only because it’s not green but also because it’s not your usual crumble fruit.
Then it’s filled with tropical flavours like cardamom and coconut which always remind me of the tropics. And finally it’s topped with ice cream so it’s an awesome summer treat.
Kiwifruit is a super fruit
Kiwifruit on its own is already an amazing snack. It’s packed with vitamins C, E, potassium and fibre. You just cut it in half, scoop out all the deliciousness with a spoon, and enjoy!
And in case you’re wondering, SunGold kiwifruit is sweeter than a green kiwifruit and tastes like a mango and a strawberry – isn’t that just fantastic? And that unique flavour makes it an awesome fruit to bake with as well.

In this crumble, the kiwi takes on a creamy consistency with wonderfully crunchy seeds. Its unique flavour complements the cardamom and toasted coconut crumble perfectly and, topped with vanilla ice cream, makes for a lovely summer dessert.
So go and get yourselves some Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit (it’s available in your local supermarkets from May to October…that means now!) and let this tropical kiwi crumble jazz up your summer.
