We use any fruit, especially if it is locally in season or growing on our farm. However, the pink and green from the strawberries and kiwi seem especially fun and preppy.
2 cups organic yogurt (we use our goat's milk instead, when we have it), 1 cup orange juice, 8 sliced strawberries, 3 peeled & sliced kiwi fruit, a dash of vanilla, honey (use as much or as little as you feel you need for sweetener), 12 ice cubes. Blend and serve immediately.
For the Adults: Vodka Tonics
We still love our G & Ts, but we have found that we like these just as much.
1 shot Vodka, 3-5 ice cubes, 1/8 of a lime, and fill the rest of a tumbler with tonic water. Stir, and enjoy outdoors!
For Everyone: Arnold Palmers
Named after the great golfer, of course, these can now be purchased ready-made in the grocery store, but we like to make our own. These are wonderful to sip by the side of the pool or to take on picnics.
1 part lemonade, 1 part iced tea (we like ours sweetened), a slice of lemon.
