HOW TO MAKE KIWI CUCUMBER LEMONADE?
Kiwi Cucumber Lemonade- A refreshing thirst quencher with the goodness of kiwi and the tang of lemons.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. This was a build as you blend kind of a drink. And since the first time, I have made it every time I have had kiwis and everyone loves it!
How to peel a kiwi?
Perhaps, the most challenging thing about a kiwi is peeling it. If i m going to eat it as is, then I just eat with the skin on. Yep. Try it and thank me later.
But if its for a juice like this one, then I use a sharp spoon. Cut the kiwi into halves and go in with a sharp spoon around the edges to gently pry away the skin. Works like a charm.
You can make a big batch of this lemonade and keep it refrigerated for 3 days. I do this very often with different lemonade recipes, come summer. Make sure to use a clean glass carafe or bottle to store this lemonade.
