Slow Melt Berry Lemonade Cooler


Lemonade was made for summertime. As a kid my mom would make a big batch and put it in a pitcher on the back porch and we would run around splashing in the sprinkler and taking lemonade breaks. I think we went through a pitcher a day (with the help of some neighborhood kids) and it never got old. I still love a nice big glass of lemonade on a hot day and my kids do to, but we’ve made a fun improvement on the classic drink. We make frozen berry ice, plop it in our lemonade for a slow melt berry lemonade cooler.

Slow Melt Berry Lemonade Cooler

12 oz bags of frozen organic blueberries, raspberries and strawberries

3 tablespoon sugar

1/4 cup lemonade

Lemonade for serving (I like the Trader Joe’s Low Calorie)

Place frozen raspberries into microwave safe bowl with 1 tablespoon of sugar sprinkled over the top. Microwave for about 1 minute or until berries soften . Place the defrosted frozen berries into a container that can be used with an immersion blender. Pour 1/4 cup of lemonade over the berries and blend with an immersion blender until smooth. Pour into ice cube trays. Repeat with blueberries and strawberries (strawberries will take closer to 2 minutes). Freeze overnight. Pop out of ice cube trays and into a nice tall glass of lemonade and stir.
