I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

Do you remember those red and blue gas station slushies as a kid? Those are what this drink reminds me of, except a lot healthier!

There are no artificial dyes, and I minimized the sugar in this recipe. I used frozen strawberries to get the cold slushie effect, but feel free to add in some fresh strawberries if you have some you need to use up! The lemonade part is very easy to make with only three ingredients: fresh lemon, water and sugar. This is the perfect drink for a warm day! I also like to make them for seasonal parties since they look oh-so-fancy.
