Spring is upon us and I have warm weather on the brain. Yesterday I thought I would surprise my girls with a fresh batch of homemade strawberry lemonade and they loved it. My husband even turned it into cocktails for the evening by adding a shot of vodka and some fresh basil to a glass. Cheers! Love when people make a recipe their own!
2 cups of strawberries, washed/stemmed
1 cup of lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1/2 cup of honey, I used raw local – use more if you would like it sweeter
5 cups of water
Place the strawberries (first) and honey) into your blender or Vitamix. Blend for 10 seconds or so. Then add the juice and water. Blend for another 20 seconds or so. Run through a strainer to remove the pulp if you wish. Add ice and serve.
