Kiwi is a versatile fruit with many nutritional benefits. Rich in Vitamin C, it is a powerful antioxidant and its sweet, tangy flavor is a treat to the taste buds. Not sure how to enjoy a kiwi besides eating it raw? Juices, smoothies, mocktails – the fruit can be used for several interesting and flavourful creations. Chef Neha Deepak shares four recipes to make the most of the exotic fruit.

Kiwi Fizz
2 sliced Chilean kiwi
2 tbsp honey (you can add any sweetener of your choice)

Some mint leaves
700 ml water

1/4 cup ginger bug
