I didn't have any kiwis, so I used a large mango that was about to go bad. It turned out quite nice, although my husband found that the lemon was over powering. I would suggest maybe 3-3.5tbsp of the lemon juice instead of 5. I also found that in the freeze above my fridge, the gelato did not harden until the next day. Other wise very easy to make and tasty.

I like the taste of this, and my kids did too. I was trying to find a way to use up some overripe kiwis, and was happy to find this. They must have been smaller kiwis though, because I needed to use 6 to get 3/4 cup of puree. I think this will be a great recipe to try in the summer as it is very refreshing.

I only had 2 kiwi, so I halved the recipe. Delicious! Even my 7 year old granddaughter liked it and she is not too fond of kiwi. I like that the recipe is simple and does not contain heavy cream or half and half. Thanks.
