For Strawberry Month: Strawberry Limeade

IMG_1617

I featured this recipe on my blog last year, but since I have so many new subscribers I thought I would bring it back one more time. Strawberry Limeade is just in time for the season of freshest strawberries. It’s only 2 ingredients, and it’s┬áso easy to prepare. My kids beg me to make it year-round, and if I can’t find fresh strawberries, I purchase frozen. These already-sliced strawberries from Dole are my favorite.

A Sign of Spring: Strawberry Limeade

Coming up with this recipe may seem simple to you because that’s what I thought when I submitted this recipe concept to a client for recipe development. Honestly, I made this recipe at least six times. I kept placing the strawberries in the blender and coming out with a fizzy product. It tasted great, but was very foamy and fizzy. The kids loved trying all the versions, but they even complained about all of the fizz. I realized that maybe I was making this too complicated trying create a lime simple syrup, different sugars, etc. until I realized why not just try chopping the strawberries in the food processor first and then stir them into simple limeade? This version worked great so I hope you will like it too.
