Sparkling Light Kiwi Apple Ginger Lemonade

 

I love to mix flavors & make crazy concoctions. I think I even confess to that on my Twitter Avi. My family thinks it’s totally crazy to mix diet coke and grape juice but I think it tastes great ! Occasionally when I mix flavors I get  approval from my family ( they actually drink it )and then I know it’s a recipe I can safely share. This experiment turned out quite delish ! A light lemonade with so much flavor it doesn’t need sugar. I have been juicing apples a lot lately. We just happen to have a ton of apples since my kids generously picked about 14 lbs of apples at the farm last weekend. I find fresh apple juice  too sweet and I usually like to water it down with seltzer water. Makes me feel I am drinking a fruity soda. This time I added an over ripe kiwi and lemon to it. It gave it a zip. I added some grated ginger and woo hoo ! It was perfect. My kids are not crazy about  ginger, so skipped it for them.  Lemonade is usually high in sugar. One of the reasons I make my own low sugared lemonades in the summer which are fruity and full of flavor. This one is a winner. Light and refreshing with just a little kick from the kiwi and ginger. I won’t say anymore. You have to try it to believe it :) You can use apple cider instead of fresh apple juice. It works pretty good ! 

 

Nutrition Wise !

Kiwi is a magical fruit packed with more vitamin C than an equivalent amount of orange. It also has a good amount of pottasium and the tiny black seeds adds a burst of fiber. Add the goodness of apple juice and lemon and you have a pottasium packed Vitamin C monster. Ginger is my favorite spice and I have a whole post about it

I like to just crush my kiwi in and watch it floating around :)

  5. i have a magic bullet, but i do.’t know if i could juice the apple with it how you use the apple?

  6. Hi we made our first home made lemonade while on holiday in Greece. During the summer. I was surprised it came out pretty good. Yours looks a far way ahead I love the sound of the kiwi in it. So definatly going to try it.

    So for another great yummy idea thanks lee

  7. That’s my fresh, new drink for the summer sorted! I might even be a little cheeky and add a splash of white rum. I’m sure that might go against the nutritional value of the lemonade but as long as we keep it away from the kids :P
