Hello friends!!! I am back with another fruit beverage today. KIWI, as it is commonly known originated in China, it has a sweet and tangy taste. Kiwi fruit brings a lot of health benefits with it , it is a good source of dietary fibre and is also rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin E. People allergic to kiwi should avoid its consumption. I prepared this drink keeping in mind that its summer time. I generally prepare this drink with fresh cream and serve it immediately as dairy and kiwi don’t go well together, but in this recipe I used cream of coconut instead so anyone can have it freely unless one is allergic to kiwi. The kiwi which I bought was not very sweet so I made a compote out of it first. Compote is to combine the fruit and sugar and heat it till a jam like consistency is formed. The motto of doing this is to intensify the flavor of sugar in the not so sweet fruit and enhance its taste.
