|Start with partially thawed (formerly frozen) strawberries* -|
1½ - 2 cups per person
|Place in a blender with 1/4 - 1/2 cup (per person)|
of coconut milk, milk, cream,
or beverage of your choice -
with sweetener to taste
|...and enjoy the resulting divinely red,|
icy-cool and lusciously smooth elixir -
chock-full of Vitamin C
and cheery refreshing goodness.
*Frozen strawberries work best (if allowed to thaw a bit first) because the freeze/thaw process breaks down their cell walls, allowing them to release more juice. Other fruits and/or flavours may be added as desired.
We're very blessed to have frozen strawberries, or frozen anything right now, when so many people in the U.S. are suffering without electricity (here in Wisconsin and on the East Coast). Others (in Colorado) have lost not only power, but their homes, to fire. Our prayers go out for all of them.
How are you staying cool this hot summer? (If your summer is hot, that is.)
