Kiwi – Choose ripe and juicy kiwi to make this cooler. Press them a little, if it presses gently it is ripe enough to use in the recipe.
Avoid the ones that are extra soft, as they are overripe and will not add that tangy taste required in the cooler.
Lemon – Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for a refreshing taste.
Mint Leaves – Adds a refreshing flavour, so do not skip it. You can even use fresh basil leaves instead.
Sugar syrup – Adjust according to your taste.
Soda water – Us unflavoured un sweetened soda for this drink. You can also add honey (not vegan) instead as a healthy alternative.
Ice cubes – Optional but add in to give you instant relief from the scorching heat.

Wow, does this sound delicious. Kiwi is some of my favourite fruit, and as a child my Mother always gave them to me to sooth my mouth when it was sore. It’s a shame that in England, it’s hard to find kiwi that isn’t overripe and squidgy. Maybe this is the solution and use for my squishy kiwis!
