Morning Pink Lemonade
- 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
1 cup strawberries - washed and leaves trimmed
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups water
ice cubes (optional)
4 fresh mint sprigs (optional)
In a blender or food processor, combine the lemon juice with the strawberries and sugar. Replace the lid and process the mixture on high until the strawberries are completely pureed.
If you do not like pulp in your drinks, pour the mixture through a strainer and press the pulp to squeeze out all the juice.
Add the strained or unstrained mixture into a pitcher. Pour in the water and stir until the mixture is completely blended.
Fill four 8-ounce cups with ice cubes. Pour the lemonade over the ice. Garnish the drinks with a sprig of mint (optional) and serve. If you like a little fizz in your drink, then use one cup of water with one cup of seltzer water.
Strawberry-infused lemonade. An incredibly fresh tasting way to wake up your senses. It's great for your kids too!
