Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, kids didn’t go back to school until after Labor Day.
OK. I’m being a smart aleck. But my husband and I remember this time fondly. Of course, our kids will remember that they get out of school in early May, when kids who started after Labor Day were still sitting in a classroom until June, but still. Around here, though the kids already back in school, we still like to think of Labor Day as the official end of summer.
So when Walmart challenged me share a Labor Day story with you, I knew I wanted to do something to celebrate summer’s close. If you’re planning to celebrate the holiday with a picnic or party, or if you just need to cool off (because we all know it’s still going to be hot for a few months), here’s a recipe that will hit the spot.
Frozen Berry Lemonade
- 6 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup frozen raspberries
- 1 cup fresh, diced watermelon
- 6 tbsp. agave nectar
- 1 1/2 cups ice
- 12 oz. water
1. Place frozen lemonade, strawberries, raspberries and watermelon in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Add ice, water and agave nectar and pulse until blended. Serve immediately.
Makes about eight 8 oz. servings.
My daughter says this tastes like a frozen drink from Taco Bell. I like to think it tastes better, and it’s definitely healthier. It’s also likely a lot cheaper per serving, and you can get all the ingredients at Walmart.
