This strawberry lemonade healthy Slurpee is super easy to make and beats simply serving your kids straight-up lemonade as a sunny day sip. This frosty sweet drink is nearly half the calories as lemonade would be and contains added antioxidants and fiber. Give it a try for your perfect spring time lunch.
This sip is lower in calories that traditional lemonade because it contains a giant scoop of calorie-free ice! But the flavor is still intensely refreshing — I mean really, most store-bought lemonades (even the high quality brands) can contain a hefty amount of sugar — so the ice reduces the sweetness without reducing the flavor.
Actually, since you are also adding in a scoop of antioxidant and fiber-rich red strawberries — you are adding another layer of flavor. Plus you get a lovely pink lemonade color.
You can even change the fruit to change the flavor. Some to try are:
- and more frozen fruit flavors.
You can make your own lemonade from scratch or use a store bought brand. To keep this Slurpee healthy, avoid brands that are extra high in sugar or sweetened with HFCS. Fruit juice sweetened is my preference.
