In need of a fun and flavorful drink to offer your guests at your next summertime shindig? Oh good! Do I have a tasty (and purdy!) drink for you.

This drink is great because your guests will think that you went to a lot of work for them, when really, this strawberry mint lemonade is a cinch.

It feels special, too, especially if you go garnish crazy, like I tend to do.

And just between you and me, this drink only has a fraction of the sugar when compared to a can of soda and most other lemonades. Yay, us!

This is how you make it:

 

1. First fill four glasses all the way up with ice.

2. Blend together the hulled strawberries, mint leaves, dates, lemon juice, sugar. and water in a high-powered blender (I used a Nutri Bullet blender) until smooth.

3. Pour this magically d-lish mixture over the ice.
