6 Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit, peeled
Juice of 1 lime
12 mint leaves
1 Tbsp caster sugar
Crushed ice, to serve
250ml-500ml sparkling mineral water, chilled
Paper or reusable straws, to serve
8 small mint sprigs, to garnish
- Cut off the tops from two Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit. Cut each into 1cm thick slices. Use a 4cm heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out a heart from 8 slices. Set hearts aside on a plate.
- Place remaining 4 Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit in the jug of a high-speed blender. Add lime juice, mint leaves and sugar, then blend until smooth.
- Half fill 8 serving glasses with crushed ice. Pour Kiwifruit mixture over ice, then top up with a little sparkling mineral water to fill the glasses.
- Serve with straws, garnish with mint sprigs and place Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit hearts on to the edge of the glasses to decorate.
ZESPRI™ TIP: If you’d like to make your punch into more of an icy slushy, simply add handfuls of ice to your Zespri™ SunGold™ Kiwifruit mixture and blitz in the blender until wonderfully icy cold and slushy. Don’t add any mineral water.
