Frozen Raspberry Lemonade

Around this time every year I find myself reminded of the difference between the expectations of summer and the real life summer. Don't get me wrong, we are having a great time but it's odd to live someplace where people travel to, from all over the world, to celebrate the season. The calendar of events this August is massive and we'll probably only make it to a few. Almost everyone around us is on vacation and it feels like we are trying to be on vacation while living our normal life at the same time - this can be tricky.

Recently, we came home from a long beach morning and our energy was dragging. I knew we needed a fun and simple project to pull us out of hot and grumpy town. Luckily, we had everything on hand for Frozen Raspberry Lemonade so Dylan and I made two glasses for ourselves. It did the trick.

For a larger group you can easily double or triple this recipe. Also, if you like frozen lemonade more like slush simply increase the ice.

Frozen Raspberry Lemonade
makes 2 small glasses 

1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 1/2 lemons, juiced
6-8 ice cubes
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon agave nectar

Simply, blend everything together and enjoy right away. I don't worry about the seeds because we have a really powerful blender but if they are a concern to you then puree the raspberries first and work the fruit through a sieve or cheese cloth then continue along.

Can you tell I'm psyched about the surprise roses that popped up in our garden this week? Who knew.
