Everyday with Kayla Kay

Strawberries MMMMMMM!

Every year we so enjoy strawberry picking. If you live in Maine or have ever lived in Maine you understand me completely.

This year the strawberries were extra delicious and Marshall, Nanny ( my mom), uncle Ethan and I put up about 40 quarts together. we had a great time.

Marshall loves Strawberries. He didn't want to stop eating : )

Here are some great Strawberry drink recipes to try on those extra hot days to cool you off. Hope you enjoy them.
Honey- Berry Float
1 qt. Chilled milk
1/3 c. honey
2 cups crushed strawberries
1 tsp. Almond extract
2 cups vanilla ice cream
Combine milk, honey, strawberries, almond extract and ice cream in blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and garnish with scoop of ice cream on top. Yields 6-8 servings.
Strawberry Lemonade
1/2 c. sliced strawberries
1 TB. Sugar
2 TBS. Frozen lemonade concentrate
1/2 c. water
4 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients except ice cubes in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses, add ice cubes and garnish with floating strawberries if desired. You can add the ice cubed in blender and blend with rest of ingredients if you want more of a slushy. Enjoy.
