strawberry Spritzer

 

The Hood strawberries are in season and The Little has been plowing through them like a steam roller over hot asphalt.   My husband seriously berated the heck out of me for buying, dare I say it, California strawberries, but hello, they were on sale.    They were rather sad looking things and I only bought because I was thinking of cooking them.  Then it got hot as heck in Portland, like over 80 degrees and all I wanted was something fun and cool to drink.

This strawberry spritzer recipe is so simple and you can also make it with any other berries that you love.  A mango blueberry one sound fun and so does a peach raspberry one.    If you don’t want to add sweetener use really ripe juicy berries and you can keep this completely sugar-free.

    Well that certainly does sound refreshing. It seems fresh fruit is always in season here in North Texas so I’d like to try this with some different flavors over the summer.

    Great recipe, and it sounds quite refreshing! It sounds somewhat similar to the refreshing drink I made yesterday. Instead, I used Kevita’s sparkling probiotic vegan coconut beverage.

    Sounds like a simple delicious treat! Our local strawberries should be ready for picking starting next week, I can’t wait.

    We’ve been eating strawberries this week! I love the idea of putting them in a blender with a touch of maple syrup.

    I’ve got a pretty bad sweet tooth, so I appreciate your ideas to make these sugar-free. I’m trying to break the habit!

    I would have never thought of adding maple syrup – I bet that’s a unique flavor!
