Let’s make the mocktail of the summer!
One of my favorite drinks is a kombucha slushie! This is my go to drink for those warm summer afternoons!
To me, summer nights scream after dinner walks with my doggie and husband, ice cream in hand just enjoying the warmth of the day settling into the earth. I’ve been slowly changing out my ice creams with kombucha and now I’ve done a full change to my slushie! This new flavor of Health-Ade is heaven in a bottle! It’s light, refreshing and just tastes like summer!
Let’s get to blending!
June is hands down one of my favorite months of the year!
It’s warm, the summer seems endless and the days are SO long! Although, I don’t get a traditional summer vacation, I try to create the illusion of one through changing up my routine! We grill during the week, have thursday night homemade ice cream sandwiches and head into the national parks on the weekends for camping trips! I also take my lunch break (or any break from work) outside! Feel the sun on my skin, sip on my Kombucha, and just embrace summer!
This is my third summer out of college and I feel to be embracing the summer more than I did when I had 3 months off! Those little joys bring so many smiles over time and I have found that having a sip of a slushie on a Tuesday makes me even happier to embrace my Wednesday - SO heck! I go for it!
What I absolutely love about this recipe is the no-guilt factor! There is 0 added sugar, 0 added grossness, 0 alcohol and 100% natural organic ingredients! Bypass the margaritaville slushie and make this one at home! I love to have guests over to our house on Saturday afternoon, throw together a fruit salad, whip up this slushie and sit in the backyard. It’s brings out the kid in all of us!
So heck, have some friends over on a weeknight, blend up some slushies and enjoy your summer break! It’s time to shine and really take back your summer from the world of the adult! Tag me so I can see how you are embracing your summer!
