Kiwi Sarsaparilla Slush

Kiwi  is one fruit that we all love  at home, last week I received a complimentary box of kiwi fruits from Zespri .  Since its summer here I thought of trying this kiwi slush, its  such a thirst quencher to beat the heat, especially as you sip the drink you get the tiny chunks of the kiwi in your mouth,  its so refreshing and we at home loved it.  I have made this drink with Nannari, click here to read more about this as I have explained it in my earlier post more about this.

Zespri Kiwifruit contain so many vitamins and minerals, they’re truly bursting with natural goodness. The powerful combination of vitamins C and E, potassium, folate, and dietary fibre, gives Zespri Kiwifruit one of the highest nutrient density and adequacy scores compared to other common fruit. If you are keen in seeing how the farmers are growing this amazing fruit have look at this video
