Easy Strawberry Drink

strawberry drink

Strawberries = Yum: I am obsessed with strawberries. Don’t believe me? When I was little I dressed up as a “Strawberry Girl” one Purim. What is a Strawberry Girl you may ask? Good question. I’m still trying to figure that one out. Anyway, some years back I was visiting Israel and noticed that everyone was drinking these gorgeous strawberry drinks. Were they daiquiris? Nope. They were basically strawberries and water with a lot of sugar.

Easy. Delicious. Perfect for at your desk or after school: Here’s a healthier version for when you’re craving a treat, or are desperate to mix up your fruit intake. And since it’s not run through the juicer, you keep all the fiber and fruity goodness. And just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s not delicious or really good for you!

Incidentally, that quilt in the pic actually a gorgeous wall hanging made for me by my extremely talented friend Marijke. It represents the 7 Species prevalent during biblical times in the land of Israel as written “A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey.” (Deuteronomy. 8:8*)

Easy Strawberry Drink

Print Recipe
Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • 5 large frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Instructions

1

Allow strawberries to thaw just slightly; if they're too frozen they'll just clump together and make it difficult to blend.

2

Place strawberries in your high power blender. Add a cup of water, lemon juice and maple syrup.

3

Blend until it has the consistency you prefer. If you like it as more of a frappe, then limit the amount of water added. If you prefer a watery consistency, keep adding water.

Notes

I told you it was easy!
