Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Servings: 2, Serving Size: 1 cup
1 large lemon
¾ cup strawberries
2½ Tbsp water + ¼ cup water
2 dates, diced
4 tsp MIJA Superstar
1 cup cold water
Garnish: lemon slices and strawberry slices
In a small bowl squeeze the lemons and remove all the seeds. Make sure you have 2½ Tbsp of lemon juice. In a blender puree the strawberries and mint. Strain the mixture and set the liquid aside. (You can use the pulp in a smoothie later on). Put the dates in a saucepan over medium
heat with a ¼ cup of water. As the dates begin to break down help the dates dissolve by smashing with a fork or masher. Once the dates have completely broken down in the water, strain the liquid into the strawberry and mint liquid mixture and stir. Once the mixture has been combined, add the Superstar powder, 1 cup of water, and lemon juice. Stir well to blend. Pour into 2 glasses containing ice. Garnish with lemon and/or strawberry slices.
