Natural Summer Drink Recipe: Strawberry Lemonade Refresher

Looking for an all-natural drink you can make at home this Summer to replace your daily coffee shop run? Say ‘Hello!’ to this delicious and simple Strawberry Lemonade Refresher recipe that you and your whole family will love! Our families say this drink tastes like a Starburst in drink form, without any of the artificial flavoring. From hot Summer pool days to evening parties with friends, this drink is going to be your Summer staple!

 

 

Ingredients:

5 lemons

5 strawberries

½  - ¾ cup sugar

3-4 cups water

¼-1 cup coconut milk

Ice

 

Directions:

Juice the 5 lemons, using a strainer to separate the seeds if needed. Chop off the strawberry leaves/stems. In a blender, blend together the lemon juice, strawberries, and sugar. For a more sour and tarte lemonade, only add ½ cup sugar and for a sweeter lemonade, use ¾ cups. Pour the mixture into a large pitcher or jar, then add the water and stir together.

Fill a serving glass with ice, then pour the lemonade mixture into the glass until it’s ½-¾ of the way full. Fill the rest of the glass with coconut milk, and stir together with a straw. Garnish with leftover strawberries and top it off with a fresh sprig of mint.

Skip the mystery coffee shop drink mixes, store bought powdered concoctions, and artificially flavored sodas this Summer. We know you and your entire family will love making and drinking this recipe together! The coconut milk adds the perfect amount of creaminess to balance the sweetness of the strawberries and tartness of the lemons. Simply make a large jar and store it in the fridge for whenever the craving for a sweet drink hits!
