The hot, hazy, lazy Summer days have come. Well, the hot and hazy but not the lazy! You have to pretty much set aside time to be lazy if you want any part of laziness. We all need times to slow down and watch the world go by…..we certainly don’t want Summer to slip by unnoticed! How bout some slushies or lemonade to drink for that moment of laziness we all need now and then?
Watermelon Slushie 🍉
Put in blender:
3 c. chilled watermelon, 1/2 of a fresh lemon (juiced), a handful ice cubes, and a sprinkle stevia. Blend well. Pour in a glass jar, sit outside and revel in Summer! Your taste buds will be thrilled. Your children too. They will come running at the noise of the blender and clinking of ice, clamoring for some before they even know what your making. You hand out cups and soon there’ll be sticky, red splotches across the floor, before they ever make it outside. But that’s life in Summer! And oh the blessings of barefoot days!
You can also pour this into popsicle molds, although the water in it separates a little. Your children may think these are twice as nice as the slushie!
Fresh Lemonade 🍋
3 – 4 fresh lemons, juiced. Water and ice to make a gallon, 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite, 1/2 teaspoon E.N.D. stevia. Stir well and slice up one more lemon to drop into the glass pitcher of lemonade. This adds dimensions of beauty! I think this is really nice and sweet. You can always adjust to your likeness. I love that my children can drink up, yet aren’t guzzling down the sugar!
If you don’t care about sugar consumption and want a very easy peasy lemon squeezy of a drink, try this: 1 c. bottled lemon juice, 2 c. sugar, ice and water to make one gallon. This is very tasty and a real quicky if you need an instant drink!
🍋 🍉 If life hands you lemons, make lemonade. If life hands you melons, you may be dyslexic. 😜
