Cool off with a refreshing strawberry drink!

There’s nothing more satisfying on a hot day than gathering the flavors summer has to offer and combining them in a cool drink. Strawberries are popular ingredients in drinks, desserts, and salads as well as one of the top 50 best antioxidant sources. They are rich sources of vitamin C, manganese and other essential nutrients. Quite impressive for those small, succulent, red berries! They are at their prime when harvested and eaten from April to August. Let’s enjoy and drink them up!
