Strawberry Lemonade

The Monday after a weekend of birthday celebrations calls for a recipe that is surprisingly healthy and deliciously refreshing. Yesterday I celebrated my 29th birthday and my hubby spoiled me this weekend with flowers, coffee and a shopping trip on Saturday and then lunch out on Sunday. He really is the best. I also baked and enjoyed a delicious chocolate cake, because when you are a food blogger you bake your own birthday cake. I’ll share recipes and pictures later!

Ok, on to the recipe for today. I have always liked strawberries, but this summer I just can’t get enough of them!

Strawberry Lemonade

Do recipes that only have 4 four ingredients actually count as recipes? I hope so because the treat I have for you today only has four ingredients! I love enjoying icy drinks in the summer, the strawberry lemonade at Chili’s is a longtime favorite, but I hate that they are full of sugar and calories.

This strawberry lemonade is made with fresh lemon juice and strawberries and sweetened with honey, so not only is it delicious it’s also good for you! I love the froth and the little bits of strawberry throughout, but if that’s not your thing then you will want to strain before enjoying. Leave me a comment below with your favorite summer icy drink!

 Strawberry Lemonade

1 cup strawberries, washed and quartered
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 cup honey
2 cups water

  1. Add the strawberries, lemon juice, honey and water to the blender. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until it is combined.
  2. Chill and serve over ice. Enjoy!
