Our summer bucket list normally consists of lots of activities that involve water, but we try to incorporate things we normally wouldn’t do during the school year. Summer time is our opportunity to explore and try new things that the rigid school year schedule doesn’t allow.
Creating that summer bucket list.
Creating a summer bucket list is actually pretty easy to do. You can keep it as simple as your family wants! One of the best ways to create a summer bucket list is to include ideas from the kids. My kids love to think of new things to add to their bucket list. It gives them the chance to feel like they are actually challenging themselves and getting out of their own comfort zone. The summer bucket list can include things as simple as blowing bubbles to taking a trip to the nearest beach.
Let the creativity flow when creating those summer bucket lists and allow yourself to get out of those normal routines to try something new and exciting. We have a new one added to our bucket list this summer: trying a new fruit. Let me tell you, the Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is one that everyone should be adding to their shopping list.
How we enjoy our fruit and summer bucket list too.
Do any of you have a to-do list or a summer bucket list already started? As I mentioned, my kids love to have a list of different things to try and conquer over the summer. So creating that summer bucket list is a must for us. With the addition of trying a new fruit to our bucket list, my kids are not only consuming a nutritious snack in between all those summer activities, but are exploring their palates.
There is one kiwifruit that has made the top of our summer bucket list, Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit. Y’all, this by far has to be the best kiwifruit I have ever tasted. SunGold Kiwifruit is not only naturally yellow, but is sweeter than green kiwifruit. It is tropically sweet and easy to eat! I can’t forget to mention the nutritious benefits. Serving to serving Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit has 3x the vitamin C of an orange as well as much potassium as a medium banana. This is perfect for our very active summer lifestyle!
Snacking on Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit.
These kiwifruit sound pretty amazing, huh? Great taste, nutritious, and easy to eat! You can enjoy Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit easily by cutting and scooping. We love to pre-wash our kiwifruit and slice a few in half for scooping and then slicing others up for an easy finger food. My 2 year old loves to snack on her kiwifruit slices.
If you are up for wandering more into a recipe with SunGold Kiwifruit, then this fruit pizza is for you. It is made in under 20 minutes and will be consumed in under 5 minutes. No better way to challenge yourself with a new delicious recipe this summer!
