Have I mentioned that the HOT HUMID Southern Summers are a trial for me? Well, they are! Man, just walking outside to get the mail, leaves you hot and sweaty and in need of refreshment:) One afternoon I was at the grocery store and saw this all natural ‘Simply Lemonade’ on sale and I thought of those yummy frozen lemonades that are sold at fairs and amusement parks in the summer. I thought it would be fun to recreate that sweet treat at home. Let me tell you …..it was SUPER good! My family LOVED this homemade slushy! It was the perfect refreshment on a hot summer evening. Now this is not an exact recipe, you could even change the fruit. I think raspberries or peaches would be fantastic. If you use fresh fruit, simply add ice to reach the desired consistency. Enjoy!
I am back to posting my weekly menus here.
Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
submitted by Melanie~ The Sisters Cafe
Frozen or fresh strawberries
ice (if using fresh fruit)
sugar, if desired
Fill your blender up with the desired amount of frozen strawberries. I had frozen strawberries up to the 4 cup line. Pour in lemonade–I used about 3-4 cups. Blend. Taste. Depending on the sweetness of your berries, you may need to add a little sugar. Start with a little and check it again, adding until you love it:) My strawberries were sweet enough and I did not add any sugar.
If you choose to use fresh fruit, add ice a cup at a time, to create the same slushy result.
