Strawberry Lemon Delight, the perfect skinny drink!

Lemon-Strawberry-DelightStrawberry Lemon Delight

We’ve been having wonderful weather here in Suburbia, Ontario and to celebrate tonight I created this delicious Mocktail.

To be honest I was craving something sweet and upon searching through the fridge I found a bushel of strawberries which tempted me until I realized they’d gone off.

With my sweet craving in full-gear I headed to the grocery store and grabbed some ingredients to whip up a low-calorie drink, hoping this would satisfy me.

 

Ingredients

A fruity drink is perfect on a warm spring day!

Oh I do love the look of fresh strawberries and lemons, these two fruits go so well together for special drinks. Along with a bushel of strawberries and a few lemons I needed sparkling water and some sugar…..or in my case sweetener which can be used on a one to one measurement.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of sparkling water
  • 1/4 cup sugar or 1:1 sweetener
  • 1 Tbsp grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (or refrigerated 100% lemon juice from concentrate)
  • 1 pint (12 oz) fresh strawberries

First I grated the lemon peel, enough for 1 Tbsp, then I hulled and halved the strawberries.

While the girls watched intently, I added all of the ingredients to the blender and blended until it was uniform.

We filled glasses with ice and poured our juicy concoction over top and dressed with a lemon slice.

This turned out to be a delicious drink which all of the kids on the street enjoyed, there’s nothing like interrupting a game of road hockey to give them Mocktails!! I’ve been told I’m the BEST Mom on the street…..alas I know that won’t last. At least not until I make another batch!
