Homemade Kiwi Lemonade - freshly squeezed lemonade with a twist of kiwi fruit!

While I'm not much of a straight-up lemonade fan, I do like to combine other fruits with lemonade as the weather starts warming up. I was out of mint so I couldn't make my blueberry mint version the other day, but I did have kiwi!

I started with a small amount of sugar (2 tablespoons for 2 servings) thinking that the kiwi would be sweet enough to compensate, but that was much too sour. I would recommend starting with 1/4 cup (=4 Tablespoons for 2 servings) and taste-test from there. The ripeness of your kiwis will impact the sweetness level also.

Side note: did you know that you can eat the skin of kiwi? Apparently lots of the nutritional benefit of kiwi is in the skin. I've tried it by eating slices without peeling first and it's actually pretty good once you get used to it. Though you should still peel the kiwi for this recipe, that probably wouldn't work out all that well.

If you want to jazz it up a little you can add some sparkling water instead of regular water, and/or add the ice to the blender to make it more of a frozen treat.

I had my own recipe; I did two large Oranges, three kiwis, three lemons. I peeled them and put them on my juicer. I then warm up 3/4 cup of honey with 1/2 cup water. I mixed honey with the juice and added a good three to four cups of cold water to it in a big glass pitcher and mix it. You serve it with ice. Delish!!!!

It was so delicious and refreshing. Exactly what I hoped it would be! I put the sugar in a little bit of hot water before adding/blending. My family really enjoyed it too. Will definetly be making for family brunches Thanks for the recipe.

That was pretty gross, and the kiwi seeds got stuck all up in my mouth and throat. Looks like salsa verde too
