OK, so really summer is over a month away still, but after the sunny weekend I had – I am confidant that we are well on our way to those lazy hot days when we can all be little kitty cats – and lay drowsily in a wide sunbeam and waste away the afternoon. The perfect pairing for sunshine? Citrus beverages!! I’ve got a few to share…
Hydration is Important! I’m taking a bevie break from my Three-Part Dole Salad Summit posts. Don’t worry, part two is coming later today and part one you can read here!
1. First up is an energizing, vibrant vitamin C sip that can turn your freshly squeezed glass of OJ into a full on meal. My Vibrant Orange Juice Frosty awaits your glass..
This easy Vibrant Orange Juice Frosty – or smoothie – sure does beat a simple glass of orange juice. And this way you can make your freshly squeezed glass of OJ in to an entire breakfast – fiber, antioxidants, flavor and lots of vibrant frothiness. Vitamin C overload. Drink up some frosty sunshine this morning!…
Vibrant Orange Juice Frosty
serves two – or one extra tall glass
4 Valencia oranges, squeezed
1 small banana, ripe
⅓ cup frozen peaches
½ cup frozen pineapple
⅓ cup ice
Blend. Pour. Garnish with a citrus twist and serve!
Enjoy your vibrant day!!
This frosty has over 700% RDA vitamin C!
2. This light and sweet Triple Citrus Lemonade is the perfect sip for those lazy afternoon lunches. Sandwiches. Potato chips. Maybe a side of sunbeam. This triple-citrus stuff will put your one-citrus “lemon”-ade to shame..
Triple Citrus Style Lemonade
makes about 7 cups
4 cups chilled spring water (or add more or less to taste)
1 cup fresh squeezed organic Valencia orange juice
½ cup fresh squeezed pink grapefruit juice
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
5 tablespoon agave syrup (or sweeten to taste)
garnish: 1 cup fresh citrus slices (orange lemon grapefruit)
ice for serving
Stir all ingredients well.
Pour over ice to serve!
fizzy idea: sub the spring water with sparkling mineral water for a fun fizzy twist on this recipe.
Happy Citrus Squeeze Summer (soon enough)!
