Summer is getting hotter day by day , and we are just gulping down every drop of liquid possible. I feel the summer gets hottest during the weekends, and weekdays are kind of adjustable.
Nowadays we have started our new way of drinking up our fruits , yes , we are enjoying are frozen fruit smoothies most of the time possible.
Yes fruits are getting over in no time now a days. Even our little lady who is not so found of fruits, is extremely happy in enjoying her Frozen Drink. She loves Jamba Juice , and finishes of her drink happily , i wished she had the same happiness in finishing her evening cup of Milk. I have such a hard time to make her drink it all. But when it comes to this special Home -made Frozen Fruit Smoothie , its all happiness !!!
This is a Pinterest inspired drink that i got to try recently and we enjoyed the whole jug within minutes. This drink also seems to work perfect for Summer Birthday Parties at Parks. The Mint - Sugar Syrup recipe was from here.
