I'm going to be in Oregon for a few days attending a graduation, so I won't be posting, but I'll be back before you know it. Here's a quick little something to tide you over until then:-)
This isn't a recipe so much as an idea for a wonderfully refreshing summer beverage. The strawberry lady told me the season was wrapping up, so I bought a few cartons on Tuesday and washed, stemmed and froze most of them. While they're great to make jam and pies out of, my favourite use is to turn them into blended beverages.
Instead of adding ice, you just add the frozen strawberries and some liquid (I used a mix of buttermilk and water) and you have a wonderfully cooling beverage. To make it even more refreshing, try adding lemon juice or mint!
- Add some frozen strawberries to a blender and pour half water half buttermilk until the strawberries are sumberged. Add some sweetened condensed milk, blend, then add some more if it needs it.
