Strawberry Juice


My August blogs are all about summer refreshments.  This summer drink is inspired by some of the first berries, strawberries.  Strawberries are ready in June and we get a second crop in July.  I love picking fresh berries from the local berry farms and there are plenty around.  After I wash and freeze them, I can add them to all my smoothies and drinks.

This particular combination was inspired by one of my trips although I can’t seem to remember where.  I do remember thinking strawberries and rose? Then I was pleasantly surprised.  Originally, I made this without sweetener but it was a bit too tart so the recipe does call for 1/4 C of maple syrup.

In a good blender, simply add 3 cups of frozen strawberries and a litre of coconut water.  Add the maple syrup and 2 Tbsps of rose water.  You can add more after but this gives it a subtle floral taste.

Blend until it is smooth.  If you prefer a thinner drink, add some water before storing it in the fridge.  You can keep it for up to a week.  It is also a great starter for margaritas if you want to serve it as a special drink for a summer get together.  Give it a stir before serving.

I love using fresh fruit to make drinks.  It tastes so much better than store-bought and it is so simple.  If you want a bit of fizz, add some sparkling water to your glass.
