Summer! Who doesn’t love summer? One of my favorite parts of summer is drinking ice cold drinks and eating popsicles. I have never made my own Strawberry Lemonade, even though it is one of my favorites. Why not? I have no idea…but decided it was time to test out a recipe. I came up with this really yummy Strawberry Lemonade Slush.
My whole family gave this recipe a thumbs up. I like it because it is just tart enough but not too overpowering. If you like a tarter drink, add more lemonade concentrate or less water.
Strawberry Lemonade Slush
8 oz. Fresh Strawberries (washed & hulled)
1 cup of ice
1/4 cup of frozen lemonade concentrate
1 cup of water
mint leaves (optional)
Throw all the ingredients, except for the mint leaves into a blender. Blend together until slushy and smooth. Pour into drink glasses and serve immediately. Garnish with mint leaves if desired. Serves 4.
This drink would be fun to serve at a BBQ or for your Fourth of July Picnic. It would also make a great drink for your shower or birthday party. Or, if you are like me…you want to drink it on an ordinary day while sitting on the back porch watching the kids play outside.
Because of my obsession with icy drinks and treats, I have shared a few of my favorites in the past. You might remember some of the following:
