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 🙂 !
