Spring Lemonade -Strawberry Kiwi Lemonade Flush

  April 17, 2014  |    Blog>Recipes

You know how we feel about spring and summer–we LOVE it!  Tammy’s daughter being named Summer, was no accident ;).  And with spring officially here, it’s time to kick things into high gear and get ready for summer!  This means out with the heavy foods and in with lighter foods in the fridge and the pantry– and also squeezing in a bit more activity in your day.  And let’s face it, afterwards, there’s nothing better than a delicious, healthy and refreshing drink to kick back and relax with or to cool down and hydrate with after a tough workout!  We love any fruity combination (like our Cool Melon Virgin Mojito Smoothie or our Vanilla Pine-ana Strawberry Smoothie) —and especially healthy  twists on lemonade.  And any lighter twist on the traditional lemonade is a win in our book too.

Strawberry Kiwi Lemonade

We tried combining strawberry and kiwi and totally scored!  Plus, both fruits are both packed with potassium & water—the perfect combo for restoring the body’s normal fluid balance, flushing out excess sodium and the bloat that comes with it. And both fruits are fiber fiends, so they help to keep you regular and flush out any bloat and puffiness from constipation—so this fruit combo makes us all feel a little more confident to get into our swimsuits!

Another bonus? Strawberries contain immune boosting phytonutrients and are a great source of vitamin C.  Kiwi’s also are loaded with vitamin C. We created this Strawberry Kiwi Lemonade Flush so that it would be the perfect way to get your morning or afternoon rolling—it’s light and sweet but not overly sweet and heavy!
