It finally warmed up here in Utah and I have been hard at work doing yard work. Lots of yard work. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite drinks to have on a warm day.
It is ridiculously easy to make. Here is all you need:
1 Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
2 Lemons (or 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice)
5-8 Large Strawberries
I add the lemon juice and strawberries to the blender with a little water and blend that up before ever adding the orange juice. Orange juice tends to get foamy real fast so I add that last. I also like to let my concentrate thaw all the way before using it. Once I add the concentrate I then add the normal amount of water (like if I were just making the orange juice) minus what I added with the strawberries earlier.
Here are the cute lids I use on the jars!
I like mine a little sour but if you want to sweeten it up add your choice of sweetener ( like sugar, stevia, honey, etc.)
It is perfect for drinking in the shade on a hot summer day. It is also yummy for breakfast to get your day started.
***Here is a little tip…… Add ice and make it a smoothie! Just reduce the amount of water you add so it doesn’t taste watery.
