Summer reminds me of splashing in the water on the lake, spending hours basking in the sun on the boat, and indulging in delicious fruity cocktails. Obviously the cocktails have been off limits for me this summer, but that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun pretending. Last weekend while everyone was sitting outside sipping on their fruity concoctions, I decided to step into the kitchen for a little experimenting of my own.
The first thing I did was gather up several ingredients that I thought I could blend down together and got to work. My number one priority while pulling out ingredients was to keep the drink as healthy as possible while also satisfying my sweet tooth and giving me the fruity satisfaction that I was craving. To do that, I headed straight for the Born Sweet® Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener. Zing™ Stevia Sweetener is made with only real ingredients – nothing artificial, so it has the perfect sweetness found in Mother Nature’s stevia plant. I then opened up the refrigerator and started pulling our fresh fruits and juices. When I thought I had just the perfect mixture of sweet and fruity, I headed for the blender.
What I came out with was nothing short of delicious! I poured my "mocktail" into a pretty glass, rimmed the glass with Zing™ Stevia Sweetener, and topped it off with a fancy straw. The end results were so good that even my cocktail-drinking friends wanted to steal my drink away. I'm already stocking up for this weekend's lake trip so I can recreate what I am calling the Frozen Strawberry Limeade Mocktail.
Doesn't the name alone just make your mouth water? This drink is too delicious not to share. Whether you're a mom-to-be looking for something to replace your favorite summer cocktail with, or just someone who enjoys cooling down with a fruity drink in hand, you have to give this Frozen Strawberry Limeade Mocktail a try. Cheers!
