Kiwifruit Crush

Kiwifruit_crush_1 Kiwifruit is a wonderful fruit of ancient China and was introduced to the western world in the starting of the 20th century. Kiwifruit is also known as Chinese gooseberry. It is full of vitamins particularly rich in vitamin C and minerals. I came to know about Kiwifruit recently, and was searching this fruit to taste it. I luckily got this fruit from supermarket.

Kiwifruit looks different in colour, oval shaped with hairy brown skin. It is soft, green inside with black seeds and tastes sweet and mild sour. I prefer to use fruits without cooking to retain vitamins and natural flavour. Therefore, I tried kiwifruit crush adapted to Indian taste.

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes approximately

Ingredients

  • Kiwifruit – 1 no
  • Sweet lime – 1 no
  • Banana – 1 no
  • Honey – 2 table spoon
