Day 11: Pandan Zespri® Kiwifruits Cooler

Wow, day 11 of the Zespri® 14-Day Daily Scoop of Amazing Challenge already, time really flies when one is having fun. As it's Raya, the festivities continues with more open houses and merry makings. Just don't forget that one can incorporate Zespri® Kiwifruits to share the love and nutrients with your friends and family. Don't forget to check out the benefit and nutrient details on

You can pack in a homemade Frangipane Zespri® Golden Drops together with some Zespri® Kiwifruits in a small little hamper as buah tangan when visiting your friends or family. Surprise visiting friends by serving up something new and delicious Zespri® Kiwifruit Sambal Lada with Prawn Lemongrass Skewers apart from the signature rendang and lemang! See the delight on their faces ;-)

Other than that, serve freshly cut Zespri® Kiwifruits on a nice platter. I'll show in another post how to peel kiwifruits and cut them into pretty flowers.

Day 11 Kiwifruits Platter

Why not make a cake decorated with Zespri® Kiwifruit slices to end the meal in a rather spectacular way? This Zespri® Kiwifruit Lemon Sponge is so easy to make and assemble with minimum fuss. Will post up the recipe in another post for easy reference and search ;-)

Day 11 Lemon Sponge with Zespri Kiwifruits 01

As for now, when guests arrive serve this Pandan Zespri® Kiwifruits Cooler, a refreshing change from the usual air sirap ros or sirap bandung. Can make ahead the few components and store in the fridge, just assemble in a jug before serving.

Day 11 Pandan Zespri Kiwi Cooler

Pandan Infused Water

Pandan leaves
Hot Boiling Water

Shred pandan leaves and smash up gently with a pestle. Place in a pot with lid. Pour in boiling hot water and infuse for about 30 minutes or so with the lid on. There is no need to boil these as I find the flavour is not as fresh and clear. Strain into a bottle when cooled and keep in the fridge. Easy as that!

Simple Syrup

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Boil sugar in water until sugar melted. Cool and store in refrigerator.

Zespri® Kiwifruits Ice Cubes

Cube some kiwifruits and place them in ice cube trays. Pour water and freeze them.

Pandan Zespri® Kiwifruits Cooler

Pandan Infused Water
Zespri® Kiwifruits Ice Cubes
Zespri® Kiwifruits Slices (try to use different types of kiwifruits so that you'll get different colour effect to make the drink prettier)
Cold water or aerated water such as Spritzer Sparkling Water or even soda water (I didn't cos BoiBoi doesn't like carbonated drinks)
Basil seeds (biji selasih) wash and soak in water, once plump up, strain

Sounds like a lot eh but it's really not. Sorry no measurement as this goes with your taste, just add more of Pandan Infused Water for stronger pandan flavour and more sugar if you prefer a sweeter drink. Add more basil seeds if you like more. No hard or fast rule here ;-)

In a jug, add in all the ingredients. Adjust to taste!
