Before starting, please make sure you have all the ingredients and utensils ready.
In the blender vase, combine 2 cups of potable water, starfruit, and kiwi. Blend until everything is juiced. Strain and discard any solids.
Mix in the lemon or lime juice. Sweeten with sugar or sweetener to taste. Keep it in the fridge if you will not serve it right away.
When it's time to serve, mix in the ice and sparkling water, pour into 6 short glasses or 4 highball glasses, and decorate with lime and starfruit slices.
You can use white grape juice concentrate instead of sparkling water and sugar for a different yet interesting flavor.
Freeze cubed kiwi fruit and use instead of ice.
For a different taste, but quite "green" and refreshing, substitute the kiwi for 2 small cucumbers.
