I have to admit that this is a bit too sweet for me. I used Equal, and didn't have orange zest so I addd about a tbsp of orange juice. It is a very pretty drink, and a great way to get your Vitamin C for the day, but next time I would cut down on the sugar or sweetener. A tip for easier prep...instead of peeling & slicing the kiwi, I cut it in half and used a spoon to scoop out all of the fruit. It's a lot easier than peeling and you don't waste any of the fruit.
Very good. My son loved this.
