I know it seems early, but summer is just around the corner. I’m ansty pantsy to get out on a bike ride.. or two.. or fifty million! Last summer I fell head over heels in love with bike riding, and at the end of it, I imagine this Strawberry Lemonade to quench my thirst. This post was originally published at I Heart Naptime but I just couldn’t not share this with you here to! Did you see my Strawberry Lemonade Layered Smoothie that I posted last week? I’m telling you – I’ve got a thing for strawberries and lemon together. The combo is unbeatable!
In my quest to be healthier, I’ve decided to kick the sugar. White sugar that is. So for this yummy Strawberry Lemonade I’ve used honey instead! It’s the perfect replacement that’s all-natural. I don’t know about you, but strawberries are my favorite berries. I could eat them all day long. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks in between. In fact, they make several appearances in my free ebook for 10 Superfoods for Breakfast. Super Fast, Super Easy, & Super Tasty!. Check it out!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I have mad love for Costco. Like ridiculously mad love. Like couldn’t-live-without Costco kind of love. If you are lucky enough to have one in your area, check out their produce and see if they’ve got organic strawberries – I was able to pick up 2 lbs. of the most beautiful fruit for a screaming deal. Why organic? Check out my Clean 15 vs. Filthy 15: When Organic Matters post. You certainly don’t have to buy the organic, but when they are such a good deal – why not?
