We’ve talked about how your hot tub and barbecue make such great partners, but what about drinks? Every hot tub experience should have some delicious, cold drinks to go along with it. As you’ve probably heard many times, alcohol and hot tubs don’t make the greatest of companions (due to the dangers of overheating and dehydration), so what’s non alcoholic, and perfect for the outdoors and summer? Smoothies! Here’s one of our favourite recipes. Feel free to experiment though!
Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie
2 cups pink lemonade or a small amount of lemonade concentrate and 1 cup water
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 tbsp honey
2 cups of ice cubes
Pour all liquid ingredients and strawberries into the blender. Add first cup of ice cubes. Blend at MIX setting for 30 seconds then blend at SMOOTH setting until smooth. Add second cup of ice cubes and repeat. Serve immediately. Each recipe serves approx 2-3 people depending on serving size.
