We have been going to a few parties lately. Parties are fun, but they usually serve soda or punch. Most of the punch mixes have soda in them, too. Why do I care? Not sure, but it bugs me. Besides water, which is probably what I would serve at a party at my house, what other alternatives are there for punches with no soda? It needs to taste good and be something “special” right? This is a great strawberry lemonade recipe. I added an extra “punch” of probiotics, but you can always leave that out.
1 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup whey (optional for probiotics)
Bring 1 cup water to boil and mix in sugar. Let cool for a few minutes. Put the frozen strawberries in blender (use organic or local if possible). Set aside. Then I juiced the lemons ~ set aside. Add the sugar water to the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour strawberry mixture into a pitcher. Add 1 cup lemon juice, 1/2 whey (optional), and fill w/ additional water (about 3-4 cups). Enjoy.
Yum! But be careful it is VERY sweet. I took this mixture and turned it into popsicles. Will post about that later. If you have a sweet tooth you will love this!
