I’m Lisa from Stop and Smell the Chocolates and I’m happy to be helping out over here at Frugal Girls today (it’s a happy place to be)! Strawberries are in season right now – they’re everywhere! So are the yummy strawberry recipes! I put together a few from myself and from Heidi to help you use up those berries. First, sit down and relax for a few minutes with a Fruity Lemonade Slush – a great refreshing drink with a few strawberries in it!
- ½ cup Sugar*
- ½ cup Lemon Juice*
- ½ cup Water*
- 2 cups Ice Cubes, divided
- ½ cup Fresh Strawberries
- ½ cup Frozen Sliced Peaches
- Place sugar, lemon juice, water, and 1 cup ice cubes in blender.
- Cover and blend on high until smooth.
- Add remaining ice cubes and fruit. Cover and blend using pulsing action until smooth.
- Serve immediately. Store leftovers in freezer.
While you’re sipping through your straw, let’s look at a few more strawberry recipes…
