Take A Sip and Chill OUT!!

in kids, recipes

It’s Summer and one of my favorite things about Summer is smoothies and fruity-icy drinks!!  They are so fun to make and help to keep us cool. PLUS they are DELICIOUS!!  Recently after coming in from a HOT  day at Water World we got out the blender and whipped up some cool strawberry lemonade chillers.  Remember these  strawberries?  They were put into good use here!!

Here’s the only other ingredient (besides ice).  All natural Simply Lemonade.  Frozen lemonade concentrate would be GREAT too!!

First put a little bit of ice and a little bit of lemonade into your blender and whirl it up.  I totally just eyeballed and didn’t measure.  Who wants to measure when you are just coming in from the pool??

Then, drop in your frozen strawberries….you could really use any type of berry for that matter!  After a taste test, I did add 2 tiny packets of raw sugar.  A fruity drink can never be too sweet for me.  😉

Then pour it up.  We used these cute little “snow cone” cups.  They worked perfectly!!

I was a big girl and used a regular grown up cup.  I took mine to my office and shut the door!!  Hey, when it comes to chillin’ out, you gotta do whatcha’ gotta do!!

It was a little thick at first so the spoon came in handy.

It’s HOT out there y’all!!  Chill OUT!
