Strawberry Lemonade

strawberry lemonade
Well as it has gotten so lovely and hot here lately it's time to stop the baking and get on with cool drinks and fresh salads. Haven't made this since last summer but it is so refreshing, you can use blackberries too but the nice British strawberries in the shops now are so good! For some reason it went a little thick this time, more smoothie like so I had to add a bit more water, just adjust to how you like it.

200ml fresh lemon juice, about 7 lemons squeezed and pulp strained away
400ml water
400g strawberries
100g caster sugar

Process in blender till liquidized, add more water and or lemon juice if too thick. Serve with lots of ice and slices of strawberries and lime.


  1. I cant believe I hadnt discovered your blog earlier. I like to cook the same types of things as you, and it seems, like me you arent fond of mock meat?


  2. Hi Rose! Well I don't use a lot of seitan as you really can't buy it here, except a quick mix box online....but otherwise I do rather shamefully like my ready made mock meats, now and again, but just don't blog those things as they can be hard for other people to find. Still, I would prefer a meal without them for sure :)

    ps - your blog is gorgeous!!
