This verdant colour kiwi juice is a perfect concoction to veer away your summer blues.
Slurping a glass of chilled beverage in this weather can be a good way to tackle the torrid heat. Summers are the time when our immune system gets weak due to the continuous dehydration. This leads to various ailments including seasonal flu, nausea, vomiting and sometimes heat strokes too. With the ongoing pandemic, these risks become tenfold dangerous and we shouldn’t clearly be negligent towards our health in any way. Consuming healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables should be the number one priority in our list. Citrus fruits are the best when it comes to providing essential nutrients to our body. They have umpteen antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that are good for our overall health.
Summers bless us with a gamut of citrus fruits and kiwi is one of those goodies. It is a fuzzy brown coloured fruit, which has glistening green slices dotted with black seeds, when it is peeled off. Kiwi is a storehouse of various vitamins and minerals. Most importantly, it is enriched with vitamin C which can help to veer away various ailments whilst providing immunity. So, boost your immunity with this refreshing glass of kiwi lemonade in this flaming weather.
