This frozen cherry limeade is a healthier slushie alternative. Made with 4 simple ingredients, you can turn this into a cocktail, or serve as a mocktail.
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').
I mean, I actually get excited to do this! I actually daydream about getting into my stretchy pants.
Reasons you'll ♡ this frozen cherry limeade
- it's ready in 5 minutes or less
- it's a healthier alternative to a slushie
- you can serve it as a mocktail or a cocktail
These days, energy is scarce.
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.
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 🙂
