Quench Your Thirst

Summer is the time of beautiful fruit, and what better thing to make with that fruit than a wonderfully refreshing drink?

Strawberry Limeade (THM FP)

  • juice of 2 limes
  • stevia extract to taste (I used about 1/2 a dropper)
  • 1/2 c strawberries
  • water (can also use 1/2 flat, 1/2 lime/lemon flavored sparkling water, unsweetened)
  • pinch of salt, (optional, just brings out the fruit flavor)

In the bottom of a big mason jar, juice the limes and add the stevia.

In a small blender container, add the strawberries and cover with water. Puree and strain through a fine mesh strainer straight into the mason jar to remove seeds.

Add 1 cup ice and cover to the top with water and/or sparkling water.
