This is a super refreshing, fun summer treat!  I happened to have a bunch of strawberries around from our recent strawberry picking (we did another 30 lbs. over the weekend!) plus some limes.  I love limes to marinate meat — there are lots of great recipes using lime in Against the Grain, including Spicy Lime-Marinated Beef Strips and Beef Jerky — and I had some left. 

It sort of tastes like a virgin daquiri.  I always used to love to drink those (virgin) strawberry daquiri mixes, but now I don’t buy them because of the HFCS and other junk in them.  Now?  I can enjoy again!

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 c. strawberries, mashed
  • 1/4 – 1/2 c. raw honey, to taste
  • 6 c. water
  • 1 – 2 c. ice (optional)

Directions:

Mix the lime juice (fresh squeezed, about 1/4 to 1/3 c.), strawberries, and honey in a blender.  Blend until smooth.  Add water and ice, if desired.  Crushing the ice in the blender will add to the daquiri-like effect, but it’s not necessary.  Taste and adjust the honey as needed.  Serves 4 – 8.
