This delicious fruit is brimming with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and other essential elements which help to keep your body healthy and vital.
Zespri Kiwi fruit
Now this delicious fruit is available in India, Thanks Zespri® Kiwifruit India ( zesprikiwi.in ) . It is available in both Green and SunGold varieties. While both are nutrition powerhouses, the SunGold variant is tropical-sweet and ready to eat at the point of purchase while the Green Kiwifruit is refreshingly tangy and requires 3-5 days to ripen when kept at room temperature. Look for Zespri® Green Kiwifruit from May – November and Zespri® SunGold Kiwifruit from May – October.
My taste for Kiwifruit
I have recently developed a taste for kiwi. Being a food blogger I find it being used in more often in drinks, desserts and salads. Having received a box of Fresh good quality Kiwi I decided to make a Kiwi drink.
Tired from work or after a workout one can fix this Kiwi Kooler in a jiffy. Kiwi kooler, the beautiful light green colour looking drink is very refreshing. Best served with lots of ice and crushed mint leaves.
1. Take three green ripe Kiwis, scoop the pulp and whisk it in a mixer until pulpy.
2. Add the lemonade and crushed mint leaves to a tall glass with ice and give it a good stir.
3. Garnish with lemon. Add pepper or Chaat masala for that added spice ( optional)
4. If Lemonade not available in house, one can use fresh lemon juice and sugar syrup. Add according to your taste.
Your Kiwi Kooler is ready.
SweetAnnu loved its tangy and refreshing taste. It was a total tongue tickler and I enjoyed it immensely after a brisk walk by the sea. 🙂 😉
