This was great for breakfast but would also be gorgeous on a hot summer’s day or served at a party (maybe with a splash of vodka).
Like most people I fall into the trap of eating the same things every day. These days though I make a concerted effort to use ingredients I either don’t like and/or never use. Kiwi fruit falls into both those categories so I grabbed half a dozen the other day at the grocer. Now after experimenting by adding them to some other much loved flavours, I have created a drink that I really enjoyed, will make for others and drink again.
The best bit about this though is it’s fat free and full of Vitamin C.
4 kiwi fruit, peeled
1 large pear
10 cubes of ice
½ cup of fresh mint leaves, washed
# optional 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup
Juice the kiwi, lime and pear in a juicer.
Place the juice, mint, ice cubes and maple syrup (if you are using maple syrup) in a blender and blend until all are combined and the ice has broken up.
Serves: Serves 1- 2
Time: Takes about 10 minutes to make.
Freezing: Not suitable.
Note: To add another dimension to this, make some ice cubes with coconut water and use those instead of plain ice cubes.
