Strawberry Lemonade

عصير الليمون مع الفراولة

Anytime there's a heat wave in California, you can find me in my kitchen making refreshing lemonades. My family loves any form of lemonade, as long as it's made with fresh ingredients. I promise that fresh ingredients make all the difference! 

The best time to make strawberry lemonade is when it's strawberry season. Here in California, we have access to strawberries year round, but the best ones are always between April and July! And if you're craving this drink any other time of year, you can definitely use frozen strawberries. Just thaw them before you blend. 

You'll definitely be adding this recipe to your favorites.
