kiwiIt's hot outside. Summer is upon us and we need a way to stay cool and hydrated. Why not try a refreshing strawberry-kiwi spritzer? This cool drink is gluten free, gout-friendly, low in sugar and high in taste. Strawberries are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, folic acid and fiber; and kiwi has lots of vitamin C, vitamin E, copper, vitamin K, choline, magnesium and phosphorus so this is a healthy and delicious drink that you can have anytime. You won't believe how easy it is to make!

Ingredients:

1 kiwi fruit
1/2 cup strawberries
About 3/4 cup plain seltzer (club soda without sodium)
