We have been trying to beat the heat the last few days with fruity drink concoctions. My friend, Jackie, showed me how easily it is to make these and we've been hooked ever since. I especially love this recipe, because you just throw it in there, no measuring. If it's not quite right after you blend for the first time, just add a little of what is lacking, blend again and enjoy.
So, as you can kind of see from the picture, this particular time I blended:
strawberries, cut up
3 spoonfuls of OJ concentrate
3 glugs of milk
a dash of vanilla
2 spoonfuls of sugar
2 handfuls of ice
Blend it up, and there you go! We've also had wonderful success with peaches and bananas. So, pick any combination of fruit you want along with milk, sugar (if needed), a dash of vanilla, and ice.
Enjoy and stay cool this summer!
