I've made strawberry shortcake and a fresh salad, so now...how about a tasty beverage?
One of my favorite drinks in the summer is lemonade. So I combined lemonade with some of our fresh strawberries..and there you have it! Strawberry lemonade! So easy, refreshing, and delicious! Great drink you can enjoy sitting outside reading a magazine.
Fresh Strawberry Lemonade
Makes 4 tall glasses
1 1/2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups water
juice from 2 large lemons
Blend all ingredients until smooth. You can strain the juice if you want to remove the seeds, but I honestly didn't even notice. Give it a taste and see if you want to add more sugar to sweeten it up. I like it a little tart so this was just right for me. Chill or serve over ice...nice and refreshing!
Overall we got a lot of use out of our fresh picked berries! I used them in dishes and we ate some just right from a bowl. Nothing better than fresh berries in the summer.
This is a short post, so here's a few photos of the true yums and loves in my life....
Our French Bulldog, Clarence, he's almost 4.
Julius is a British Shorthair, 1 1/2, and the boss of the house. He'll eat any bread you leave out...(he takes after me.)
They actually get along very well and bring a ton of fun and life to our home.
