This Strawberry Lemonade is a fast, healthy, refreshing beverage to add to almost any meal. I always make freshly squeezed orange juice on Monday mornings. It just seems like a great way to start the work week. But this morning, I was out of citrus. So I had to think fast! I looked in the freezer and found a bag of organic strawberries just aching to be used. In under a minute, I turned those strawberries into fresh, instant All-Natural Strawberry Lemonade – made from whole berries, but blended frothy and smooth! Get my recipe.
Instant All-Natural Strawberry Lemonade
makes two glasses
1 cup spring water
1/2 cup frozen organic strawberries
1-3 tsp agave syrup (or any sweetener you’d like)
1 lemon, squeezed
Directions: Blend from low to high speed until frosty smooth. Sweeten to taste.
Add-ins: Try adding in a sprig of fresh mint, a few dashes of cayenne for some mild heat or steep a hibiscus tea bag in the water before blending for SUPER pink lemonade.
