Fresh Strawberry & Lime Fizz for Summer

Ingredients

    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional)

If you’ve never enjoyed the combination of strawberries and limes together, you really are missing out on a treat! Strawberries are sweet and limes are tangy, together with some sparkling water they make the most incredible drink that has a bit of a sherbet vibe to it. It’s perfect to take to a picnic lunch or works as a great mocktail to serve at a dinner or drinks party for those who don’t want alcohol.

I generally don’t put any sugar in this drink and if you’re using ripe organic strawberries, there should be enough sweetness in the fruit, but I have added the option of using coconut sugar just in case you want it to be sweeter! All you need is a blender and you have got yourself a delicious drop!

Here’s how to make it…

  1. Place the strawberries, lime juice, 1 cup water and coconut sugar (if using) in the blender and blitz on a high speed for about 1 minute until all the ingredients are completely blended.
  2. Pour the mixture evenly between 4 glasses that are about 250-300ml in size (or 6 champagne glasses if you choose)
  3. Top up the glasses with sparkling water slowly and gradually, as it will froth up.
  4. Serve with a slice of lime if you like and enjoy!
