Easy Desserts – Kiwi Fruit in Lemongrass Syrup

 

 

By Rebecca Garcia

We talked so much about the health benefits of lemon grass and why it is good for your overall well-being. Now, let's see how you can incorporate it in your meals. People usually associate lemon grass with Asian cooking, but I like to use lemongrass in my desserts.

Today's dessert recipe is simple yet it gives a sophisticated and refreshing touch. To accent the lemony aroma of lemongrass, I also used two kinds of kiwifruits – green and golden.

The green kiwi fruit is tangy and has a citrus-like flavor while the golden (or yellow) variety tastes sweeter with a light hint of mango flavor. Both are full of Vitamin C and contain potassium, magnesium and fiber.

If you want to stay slim eating desserts, kiwifruit is a good fruit to enjoy because it's low in carbs. You really wouldn't want to miss this easy-to-make dessert recipe. Each spoonful is bursting with mouth-watering flavors and vibrant colors. This is by far the healthiest and best refreshing treat for the dog days of summer!

Kiwifruit in Lemon Grass Syrup Recipe

(serves 4)

 

Ingredients:

3 stalks lemongrass, lightly crushed

½ lemon rind, shredded

1 slice ginger, crushed

3 sprigs fresh mint

½ cup sugar, more if you like

3 cups water

2 golden kiwifruits

2 green kiwifruits

12 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

 

How to make kiwi dessert

1. In a large pot, place lemongrass, lemon rind, ginger, mint, sugar and water. Bring it to a boil and then reduce heat.

 

2. Allow the mixture to simmer over low heat for about 25-30 minutes.

 

3. Leave to cool, cover and chill in the refrigerator.

 

4. Peel kiwifruits and cut into thick slices.

 

5. Fill 4 single-serve bowls with green and gold kiwifruits, alternate them so as to make a colorful presentation. Place strawberry slices on top of kiwifruits.

 

6. Strain the lemongrass syrup through a fine sieve. Pour over fruits and serve dessert chill. Enjoy!
