Hello loves! If you have not been keeping up on Facebook, let me explain this quickly - the rest of July and August will be themed on Nothin' Fancy. Really. For a clearer explanation and updates, make sure to like my Facebook page. Anyway, this first week will have 7 posts on cooking, all tried and true recipes. We'll even have a special guest on Thursday, I'm sure you can guess who!
Here we go, the first recipe. Last week, I saw a recipe that immediately caught my attention. It was a frozen lemonade, and it just sounded too good not to make! The original recipe can be found here, but today I have a different version.
1/2 cup sugar
3 glasses water
1 cup ice
1 cup berries
Halve the lemons and juice them. If you are using frozen berries, you might have to thaw them. I do, because my blender is not strong enough. Put the juice of the lemons in your blender with the rest of the ingredients. Blend until you cannot hear the ice crunching anymore (around 20 seconds).
This made the amount you see on the photo - a pitcher and another glass. I'd say it's enough for 3 big glasses and 4-5 small ones. It's a really refreshing and delicious drink and I know I'll be making it a lot. Let me know if you try it!
What is your favourite summer drink?
