Zespri® Digestive Fizz

Over eating during this festive season? I am now I am guilty! Here's a recipe for Hari Raya Zespri® Digestive Fizz that I whipped out. It serves to relief indigestion and bloatedness. Of course, it will have a Malaysian touch with ingredients easily found in Malaysia.

I chose Zespri® Green kiwifruit to reflect Hari Raya festivities. And with the green kiwifruit slightly tangier taste, it certain worked well with the tastebuds especially when one has overeaten. Of course, the big boy here is Actinidin, the unique enzyme found only is Zespri® kiwis. This enzyme helps with protein digestion.

Of course the other ingredients of lemongrass, ginger and lime has also being traditionally used in our region for reasons of aiding in digestion and improved absorption of nutrients from our food. The natural scent of these ingredients too are undoubtedly refreshing!

Ingredients for 1 serving:
• Lemongrass (25g for mocktail and 1 for decoration)
• 1 Zespri® Green kiwifruit
• Green lime juice 30ml (you can use lemons too)
• 1 tablespoon of sugar or honey (optional)
• 25g ginger (sliced)
• Sparkling water (I use perrier)
• Ice cubes

Instruction:
• Chop Zespri® kiwifruit and leave one slice for decoration purposes.
• Juice the limes
• Slice lemongrass and ginger 
• Add lemongrass, ginger, lime juice and sugar into shaker. Shake well. 
• Remove lemongrass and ginger from shaker.
• Add cubed kiwis and 2 ice cubes into above mixture. Add 30ml sparkling water. Shake well - my shaker comes with a blender ball that enables me to get the kiwi nicely mushy with just a few shakes.
• Pour into glass and top up with more sparkling water (acccording to taste). Add more ice cubes if necessary.
• Serve with a slice of Zespri® kiwifruit and a stick of lemongrass that works as a stirrer when the kiwi settles down.
• For added flavour, I have flatted the base of the lemongrass.
• Serve with love:D
