Summer is just around the corner and while you may be eager to head to the beach, kids may also be looking forward to something. It is crushed ice drinks time. The best time to enjoy a cool drink is when you are under the sun and having fun with all the outdoor activities.
Sometimes, the heat can be too much that all you want is a refreshing drink in hand whenever you need it. One of the easiest drinks to do for the summer is the strawberry crush or its milkshake version.
Here is a quick guide on how to prepare these cool drinks for your friends and family:
You may just need a cold drink but it does not mean it should be sugary and unhealthy. You can stick to fresh strawberries and leave them in the freezer for an hour and a half. Once they are frozen solid, take them out and toss them into the blender. Get a few cubes of ice and start blending until the fruits are crushed into fine bits. For a quick production of ice, industry expert GMR Supplies suggests looking into an ice machine for sale at online stores and get yourself a quick ice maker. Pour into a glass and serve.
Now your kids might want to add a little flavor to their strawberry drink. You can simply follow the same process but you can add a cup of milk into the mix. Blend until you get a smooth and creamy texture then pour it into a tall glass. Top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and your cold treat is ready to serve.
Keeping cool in the summer is important to prevent dehydration. Try out other fruits and start making your own mix of blended fruit juices as long as you have a supply of ice.
