Raspberry/Strawberry/Mint Lemonade

Last summer as I was voyaging through Europe and the Middle East I was introduced to a drink that changed my taste buds forever. Mint lemonade. Why had I never thought of that before?

I probably drank over 100 of these in my two weeks between Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. Fresh mint and crisp lemon helped beat the heat. Now that LA is starting to warm up I thought I should share the drink with all of you, with my own twist…

Ingredients

  • Several fresh mint leaves
  • 3-4 medium frozen strawberries
  • A handful of fresh raspberries
  • Lemonade
The method is pretty self-explanatory. I use a Magic Bullet to blend, and I highly suggest adding it to your kitchen.
Throw together a LOT of raspberries, the mint and the strawberries (which serve as the ice), and blend. Done. Voila.

Fresh and beautiful colors!

– I like Minute Maid’s Lite Lemonade, not just because it is only 15 calories, but because the taste isn’t as syrupy as other brands, which makes way for all of the other flavors.

I’m a HUGE fan of the Magic Bullet. Invest in one…it will save you so much time when crafting things like this drink!

Cold Summer drinks belong in mason jars.

Enjoy!
