Frozen Cherry Limeade

It’s Friday!

A few years ago, Fridays meant getting all pumped up and going out dancing, or to the pub.  Then it started to be more tame…staying in, watching movies with take out and a bottle of wine.  Lately, it has been downright geriatric.  I am actually in bed at 8pm.

This is probably due to the fact that I’m 34 weeks pregnant…but these days, Fridays get me riled up to go home, put on my yoga pants, and settle into bed with my pregnant-lady body pillow (which is hilariously named a ‘snoogle’…click here for an even more hilarious picture of it).

I mean, I actually get excited to do this!  I actually daydream about getting into my stretchy pants.

These days, energy is scarce.

Therefore easy=better.

Therefore this drink=a huuuuge winner.

It is so easy!  No simple syrup to make.  No fancy fruit preparation.  No advanced anything at all.

Just frozen cherries.  Limeade concentrate.  Some ice cubes.  Some water.  A blender.

That’s it.

So this week, I’m adding this drink to my Friday daydream…yoga pants, my snoogle pillow, and frozen cherry limeade…maybe not all at the same time but in some sort of sequence.

Now that sounds like a good Friday night to me :)

  • 1/2 cup water (plus more as needed)
  • 1-2 ice cubes
