Since my last post, summer is in full swing. The strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are almost ripe. The breeze is warm and the nights are intoxicating.
When it gets this hot, refreshing drinks (that are preferably frozen) are an absolute must. And what better drink to jazz up for this summer than the quintessential lemonade?
Here, lemonade is blended with strawberries and a touch of yogurt (tangy+tangy=addictive), then frozen and combined with sparkling water for a treat that is sure to impress. Don’t take my word for it, though. It’s so easy, you could have had it made and in the freezer instead of reading this last paragraph. Go do it!
Strawberry Lemonade Floats
4 oz. (1/2 c.) lemon juice
8 oz. (1 c.) agave nectar
1 oz. (2 T.) yogurt
7 oz. (about 2 c.) frozen strawberries
5 oz. water
Handful of ice
In a blender, whiz all ingredients until smooth. Serve over ice, or let freeze and serve with sparkling water as a float.
