I know that you aren’t exactly looking for a summer drink in a climate that calls for Pyaaz ki Kachori and a cup of hot, ginger tea!! But when it comes to Kiwi, I can only think of Popsicles or some healthy drink (not too cold as I am still recovering from a bout of viral 🙄 So my Kiwi Mojito Popsicles are out question) and a crisp, fruity Agua Fresca is just the answer for it! Delicious, healthy and pretty….all at the same time 😘
Also, because I am in no mood to go into making anything elaborate that’d keep in the kitchen for long..nope, not happening! Meaning, this one’s too easy 😂
So what’s an Agua Fresca you’ll ask me..well it’s Spanish for ‘fresh water’ and can be made with a variety of fruits for adding a lovely flavour to water. I have made some with watermelons last year..(never blogged that though). This time around, it’s with some juicy kiwis, mostly because I’ve about a dozen of them sitting in my refrigerator and the Mister ain’t a fan of the fruit by itself. So this drink is a good option taste wise and to bring in some colour to these drab, grey rainy days 🤗 And pairs well with some Corn & Paneer Toasties for a quick and filling snack 👌🏼
Let’s see how…
Yield: serves 2-3
Equipment: a blender, measuring cups/ spoons.
2 nos. green kiwis peeled & sliced (do not de seed)
1 tbsp honey (optional)
3 cups water
Place all the above ingredients in the blender and give them a go until the fruit is blended completely. Taste for sweetness and adjust. You can add more water if you like a slightly thinner beverage.
Serve immediately and enjoy! This drink tastes best with the crunch of the seeds from the kiwi fruit so do not strain it. But that’s upto you!
You can also place a slice of kiwi and few sprigs of mint to make it all dainty…but then again that’s just me! You’d might as well have this out of the blender jar 😜..who’s to know!?
