Kiwi Cucumber Lemonade Recipe| Summer Drink Recipes

Its not even officially summer here yet the its sweltering hot. The heat is relentless and peaks during the afternoons making everyone long for a tall glass of something cold to swig. Whether its officially summer or not, i m declaring it as summer. So, when i had a lone kiwi looking at me sadly from the fridge, i decided to do something with it. I usually peel, slice up the kiwi and serve it sprinkled with chaat masala and some salt. But this time, i wanted to do something different. And that time was a hot afternoon. Precisely when this Kiwi Cucumber Lemonade was born.

I never gave much thought to the recipe. Heck! its not even a recipe. I put whatever came to my mind in a blender and whizzed. And voila! we were rewarded with a refreshing drink of sorts to enjoy throughout this summer. An added brownie point being that Kiwis are rich in vitamin C, i have decided to include more of it in our diets this summer.
