This is one for those of you with a sweet tooth. Spring has finally graced us with it's permanent presence and, I don't know about you, but warmer weather always makes me reach for iced drinks, smoothies and juices. Today's number is my current favourite, a sweet, zingy fruit cooler that's so simple you really barely need a recipe.
There are only 5 ingredients to this beauty, so here's what you'll need for 1 long drink, obviously multiply as you require:
10 strawberries (I rather like frozen at the moment but it's strawberry season soon!)
Lemonade (homemade if you're watching your sugar or go for some good shop bought stuff)
10 mint leaves
1 tbsp light muscavado sugar
Thinly sliced lemon
Drop 1 tbsp of sugar and 10 mint leaves into the bottom of the glass and muddle with a spoon (or muddler if you have one!) to release the mint oils.
In a blender/smoothie maker, blend the frozen strawberries with enough lemonade to loosen the mixture so your blender copes, then pour on top of the mint and sugar. Slip some thin lemon slices down the sides of the glass, top up with lemonade and garnish with the remainder of the mint leaves.
That's literally it. A satisfyingly quick, fresh and moreish summery drink that would be the perfect accompaniment to my desperately easy Lemon Drizzle Cake, I'm already whipping up my next batch!
