Honey Kiwi Strawberry Lemonade

We tend to be water and milk drinkers and that's about it, but there's something about summer that begs fruity, yummy, special drinks. Homemade strawberry lemonade has been a favorite for quite a few years now. However, it's definitely a special treat since it contains a fair amount of sugar. This past weekend, I was on a quest to make a lighter, honey sweetened version of lemonade. The results received six thumbs up and a request to definintely make it again. It's refreshing and delicious.

This could easily be adapted to whatever fruit combination you would like for your lemonade - peach/blueberry or strawberry/lime sound like good combinations to try!

Looks at this delicious, frosty drink!

Honey Kiwi Strawberry Lemonade

4 kiwis, peeled and quartered
3/4 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 c. honey
2 c. water
2 c. ice
1 - 1/2 c. frozen strawberries (or whatever frozen fruit you like that will lend a little sweetness!)
Fresh mint, optional

Combine all ingredients in the blender and blend until pureed. Pour into 6, 8oz glasses and garnish with fruit and fresh mint if desired. I added just a few cubes of ice to each glass before pouring in the lemonade because I like my summer drinks very cold. 

I actually think some fresh mint blended into this would take it right over the top and I will be doing that next time! Hope you enjoy!
