Kumquats are a small tart citrus fruit native to south Asia and the Asia Pacific region. The rind of these olive-sized fruits can be eaten. Kumquats are a source of calcium, antioxidants, and fiber. They aid digestive health and have a tart, floral flavor. Tiny, mighty kiwis contain more vitamin C than an orange, and combine with kumquats, flaxseed, apple, and swiss chard for a cold-fighting powerhouse of a smoothie.
