It has been very hot and muggy here in Kansas! I have drank more water in the last two weeks, than I have all year long….which is a bit behind my water intake, since I am 5 weeks postpartum! My mid-wife would love me drinking this much water while I continue to nurse my little buddy! Anyway, this Sugar-Free Lemon Berry Slush hit this spot as I was dreaming up something cold one afternoon!
It is so tempting to buy a snow cone or ice cream cone while I am in town picking up groceries….but then I remember the sugar I just don’t want to consume! I love thinking of fun cold drinks, smoothies and slushies that are not only tasty but healthy too! Please comment below and tell me what your favorite summer drink choice tends to be! I would love to hear what you are enjoying!
Remember the little Slush Puppie icee makers from when your were a kid? I remember looking at those machine and wishing my mom would get me an icee! Well, those were full of sugar and who cares when you are a kid, but now I can make ones with real fruit and awesome natural sweeteners! My favorite sweetener is Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet or my own Gentle Sweet recipe.
