It has been such a hectic few days, but finally, finally I get to relax. I can’t imagine a better way to unwind than with a good book and a refreshing beverage in hand, especially on a hot humid day.

A strawberry lemonade smoothie is completely different from strawberry lemonade. A strawberry lemonade is a lemonade filled with strawberry bits. The strawberry flavor starts to infuse itself into the lemonade. But strawberry lemonade smoothie? It is so dang good. Sweet strawberries blended with lemonade to create a sweet and tangy summer beverage. The strawberries and lemonade are equally incorporated so you have a strong mix of flavors.

How did I come about this drink? A few weeks ago, I was at Jamba Juice and they had a new drink on their menu, Island Strawberry. According to the menu, it includes coconut water, lemonade, strawberries, and sherbet. When I tried it, all I could taste was the strawberry and the lemonade. So I created the drink with what I could taste. Ta da! We now have Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie. Hope you’ll like it as much as I do!

        I visited a charming café that served wholesome food like you.
        All the furnishings were unmatched and the crockery and cutlery all from different sets.
        Chosen for their beauty and usefulness and probably inexpensive, like those jars.
        A great idea not worrying about convention. _/\_
