Ingredients

  • 1 handful of strawberries stems cut off
  • Juice of 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1-2 handfuls of ice about 3/4 cup
  • water about 3/4 cup
  • 2 packets of Truvia all natural sweetener that can be found by the regular white sugar at the store

Instructions

  1. Here's how I do it: I grab a handful of strawberries (as many as I can fit in my little hand). I wash them and then cut off the stems and throw them in the blender (Kim actually uses frozen strawberries). I juice half of a lemon into the blender. I add 2 packets of Truvia. Truvia comes from the Stevia plant and is and calorie free. You could substitute 2 teaspoons of white sugar here but it will have more calories. Then I add water until it almost covers the strawberries. I add 1-2 handfuls of ice. Adjust water and ice to your preferences on thickness and sweetness. Blend well. I double this if making it for my husband too.
