Refreshing Strawberry Lemonade

In the summer I am always looking for a different option besides juice boxes for my kids.  This is a great option and the kids love to help make it with me.  And I notice when they help me make the recipes they are more likely to try new things because they are so proud of their work.

I have also used this recipe for brunches.  For the adults it is delicious if you add champagne to change this into a Strawberry Lemonade Mimosa, you can add Moscato wine for a delicious wine spritzer or just Vodka for a delicious cocktail. Relax and enjoy!

About Kids Tummy Troubleshttps://kidstummytroubles.wordpress.comI am a mom, wife and a physician. I am the owner and founder of Staten Island Pediatric GI, a private practice which is located in Staten Island, NY and serves the NY/NJ area. I was born and raised in this area. I love working in my practice but want to be able to reach and help much more than just those patients and families that I am able to see in the office. I am working on a cookbook, trying to educate regarding celiac disease and many other child stomach conditions. This blog is my thoughts of being a Physician Mommy, managing my office, my own kids, husband, my house and find time for my own health and wellbeing. I hope you choose to follow my blog on this journey and lets get this thing started!!
