Power Berry Lemonade

 

I can’t stop sipping. I can’t!  I just can’t stop mixing goodies up in my blender and sipping the day away with these delightfully refreshing bevvies.

My newest creation is this power berry mix- and it is so deliciously simple. I sipped this right up after my walk by the beach last week.

Power Berry Lemonade

1/2 cup blue berries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 whole lemon, peeled
pinch of sea salt
1 cup of ice
water as needed
stevia or honey to taste

  • Blend
  • Sip
  • Find Love

One of the keys to this whole sipping experience is the love affair I have with my straw. I have been using straws since back in the day when I was sick with a pesky case of Crohn’s disease and had to suck back the most vile of vile teas. It went something like this...

That's what I did to get healthy ! (Well part of what I did anyway) These teas were not only making me gaggify, they were turning my teeth an icky colour and so I bought myself some straws. Made the whole process much easier and I got hooked on straws. My boyfriend at the time thought I was ridiculous for washing out and reusing my plastic straws over and over again. In fact, I do still have some of them. I took to drinking everything with a straw and never went back.

So you can imagine how over the rainbow excited I was when Strawsome first made an appearance. Love at first sip I tell you! And they come in all sorts of fun shapes and sizes. One for every possible sipping occasion.

This is such an easy way for all of us to leave just a wee bit of a greener footprint, reduce our exposure to toxic plastics (and toxic tooth whitening treatments!) and better enjoy the sipping of our favourit bevys.  How can you not love a company that offer s a lifetime guarantee? That’s right my sweet sippers- a lifetime! And if you keep sipping up my sweet beverages, that lifetime will be a long and healthy one!

And in case you are worried about the glass straw + child factor, rest assured that these straws are made from borosilicate glass, the safest and strongest glass commercially available.

Sip up every last drop this summer <slurp, sip, bottom of glass slurping noise>. Aaaaah!

Question of the day: I grew up in Winnipeg, Slurpee capital of the world. Not that I would drink a Slurpee now- that would be like my decade's worth of sugar- but I am curious- what summer frozen treat was your fave as a kid?

    Soooo delicious!! I have just blended this up and it is so good. I didn't have any honey to hand so I used maple syrup instead. Yum!
