So, not only did Rachel heap me with Asian goodies the other day, she also bought me a case of farmers’ market strawberries!  Now, I knew there’d be no way I could finish the whole batch by just eating it straight, so I started to think about how I could make the most out of them before they start developing any kind of natural growth…

Enter, $20 hand-held blender from Superstore!!  I’d been wanting some sort of device that would help me in the kitchen with puree-ing, blending and mixing.  Happened to see these at the store and thought, “Hey, this would work perfectly!”  It’s easily portable,doesn’t take up much counter space, easy to store and super duper handy!

To amp up this juice I decided to use organic lemonade and grapefruit soda and agave syrup.  Tartness from the citrus notes, sweet from the sugars and agave to bring out and enhance the natural flavors of the strawberries!

I have to say…I was pleasantly impressed by how well the blender worked!  It did a great job of blending the strawberry chunks, it has 2 speeds so you can use the slower one get the initial cutting happening and then the faster speed for a finer blend.

All in all, refreshing, fruity, lightly fizzy and delicious!!
