Raspberry Lemonade Smoothie

So...are you guys getting sick of all these drink recipes yet? I hope not. Because this probably isn't going to be the end of them. ;) Besides, summer is on it's way and it wouldn't fully be summer without a little bit of drink lovin' in your life!

As we were visiting family this weekend, I whipped up a batch of this raspberry lemonade smoothie and let me tell you...mm mm mm mm mmmm. The original recipe was a little too tart for all of our liking, so Zachary mellowed it out with some extra water and a little bit of sugar. All I needed after that, was a nice big brimmed hat, a beach chair, and some sand to plop it all down in. One can only dream... Hope ya like this delicious recipe!


Serves about 6-8
Recipe adapted from Delightfully Tacky
Ingredients:
  • 1 can lemonade concentrate {frozen or thawed - doesn't matter}
  • 1 & 1/2 cans water
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups ice {more of less depending on how runny you like it}
  • Fresh lemons {optional}

Directions:
  1. Mix first 5 ingredients in a blender and mix until no more chunks exist.
  2. Garnish with fresh lemons.

I found this recipe to be super refreshing and just what I need on a warm summer's day! Enjoy.
