End of Summer Recipe: Frozen Berry Lemonade

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.

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.

      Tara, it is SO good! I’m definitely going to keep the ingredients on hand so I can make it more often, because it’s quickly become a family favorite.
