Rad Recipes: Strawberry-Honey Lemonade

HELLO, SUMMER!

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade.  if you also have some juicy strawberries on hand, even better!

After a cranky-pants morning where all the things seemed to be going sideways, I decided to take a break and come home to do what I do best: WORK. (or, werrrrk) Determined to make the rest of the day the best of the day, I set out to make something beautiful, delicious, and pretty darn healthy too.  Behold, Strawberry-Honey Lemonade!

HOW

  • Place the strawberries, honey, 2 cups cold water, and lemon juice into a blender.
