This guest post comes from my friend Lisa at Stop and Smell the Chocolates… enjoy!!
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!
Fruity Lemonade Slush
1/2 cup sugar*
1/2 cup lemon juice*
1/2 cup water*
2 cups ice cubes, divided
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 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. Makes 4 servings.
*In place of sugar, lemon juice, and water – you can use Country Time lemonade mix – use 1 cup water plus enough mix for 1 quart of lemonade.
While you’re sipping through your straw, let’s look at a few more strawberry recipes…
Strawberry Soup ~ Like a smoothie in a bowl.
