Well, it’s snowing. Again. Sighh – winter isn’t over yet!
In fact, it’s been crazily windy these last few days (like 70+ miles an hour, ridiculous!).
I can’t help but have my mind wander to sunny places on days like today. Think.sunny.thoughts.
I set out to make a smoothie – and decided to experiment with some lemon extract in my mom’s cabinets.
Pay no attention to the snowy-scene outside, this smoothie ended up tasting like a wonderfully fruity pink lemonade!!
Filled with a combination of milk, water, Truvia, mangos, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries and flavored with a little vanilla extract and lemon extract, this thing transported me to the beach!
My original intention with the lemon was simply to try to bring out the fruitiness – but I was pleasantly surprised at how refreshingly, lemonade-like this was, and it was sweet! No pucker!
- What are your summer flavors?? Lemonade is definitely a flavor I associate with the summer – this restaurant near me does a watermelon lemonade that is out of this world!! Oh, and mint chocolate chip ice cream…
