This recipe is extremely simple and contains potent ingredients which are easily available. The 4 main ingredients of this drink are- Kiwi, Lemon, Cucumber and Ginger.

Before starting lets discuss about them one by one.

Kiwi – This sweet yet tangy fleshy fruit have a unique flavor. It’s rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, fiber, potassium, antioxidants, folate etc. It contains an enzyme actinidin which can effectively break down proteins. It aids digestion and prevents bloating hence often advised to consume after heavy meals especially meat. This fruit is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C which protects the cells from free radical damage in the body. It helps in growth and repair of tissues resulting in support for the immune system. Kiwis can help in regulating blood sugar levels in the body by preventing  the uneven blood spikes.
