Doesn't a Cherry Limeade Fizzbang
sound good in this hot, July weather?
I came up with this recipe as a healthy alternative to soda pop.
Cherry Limeade Fizzbang
Limes (~3 per serving)
Cherries (~6 per serving)
Honey (~1 Tablespoon per serving)
Sparkling mineral water
Juice the limes.
Remove the stem and pit from the cherries.
Add the lime juice and cherries to a blender.
Add some honey (to taste).
Whip the lime, cherry, honey mixture until smooth.
Add more honey if necessary and blend again.
Pour this mixture into an ice-filled glass (1/2 to 2/3 full).
Fill the remainder of the glass with cold sparkling mineral water.
The amounts in this recipe are highly customizable.
You can use more or less lime or cherries or honey.
Try using freshly squeezed lemons or grapefruit.
You could use fresh blueberries, strawberries or any fruit you like.
If you dislike bits in your drink, strain the
blended mixture before pouring over ice.
This is best when sipped through a colorful straw.
Unlike soda pop, this drink leaves you feeling great!
