Strawberry-Mint Limeade

Strawberry-Mint Limeade - Quick, Simple, delicious and refreshing drink made of strawberries, mint and lime. | By Let the Baking Begin!

As the nice weather approaches cool and refreshing drinks are going to be at high demand. This Strawberry-Mint Limeade is the perfect drink to take along to a picnic or to serve at your next backyard BBQ party.

We had really nice weather couple weeks ago, so our family gathered at a local park. I brought a jar of this goodness and everyone wanted to know what it was made with, because it was super delicious and just what everyone needed on a hot sunny day.

Make it just for yourself, or multiply the recipe by as many servings as you need and make it for a party. Either way, win-win by my books.

If you’re the one to watch calories, you’re going to be especially happy to know that with SPLENDA® Zero™ Liquid Sweetener you can have all the flavor, with zero calories. Just put a squirt in your drink, for perfect amount of sweetness with no guilt attached.
