Berry Lemonade Summer Drink Recipe

My boys and I love a cool, refreshing, fruity drink for summertime! When we are outside baking in 120-degree weather trying to combat the heat with a kiddie pool and a Bomb Pop we need something to keep us hydrated. This summer, we tried something new with just three ingredients! This Berry Lemonade fruity summer drink recipe was a hit!

I received a variety of samples from Schwan’s Home Delivery. All opinions are my own.

My picky-est one wasn’t in the room when I made up the drink. His glance at the pitcher made him shouted “GROSS!!” That is, until I explained what was inside. Then, he was brave enough to give it a try. A sip later his shout changed to “This is FRUITY!!!” and a refill ensued a few minutes later.

Lemonade Berry Spritzer Recipe

Directions:  Mix together your lemonade concentrate following the package directions. Use the empty carton to measure and add two cartons of Sprite to your pitcher. Scoop 1-2 cups of Summer Orchard thawed fruit to your drink. Pour and enjoy! You don’t even need to mix.

I used Schwan’s frozen lemonade and Summer Orchard frozen fruit mix because they are both really great quality products and easy to keep on hand with home delivery right to my door. Because seriously.. no one wants to load groceries into your car and into your house in 120-degrees!

My husband got to sneak away on a fun trip to Japan. Which means I was left 24/7 with all 4 boys for 10-days straight. I knew I would end up with a night or two where the last thing I would want to do is come up with dinner. I was thrilled to pick out a few products to try to get us through the week and a half he was gone.

Schwanns Baked Ziti

The Baked Ziti fed the five of us perfectly. It surprised me how good it tasted. The noodles were soft, but had a great taste. It was topped with tons of cheese, which made my boys very happy.

Schwanns French Toast

If you asked the boys their favorite food we got to sample they would tell you the French Toast sticks. We baked the sticks, added a dab of butter and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. They were a huge hit! I added a side of the Summer Orchard fruits and they had a healthy breakfast that took no effort on my part – hooray!

Want to know what’s amazing? Schwan’s charges just $1.75 delivery fee — no matter your order size! That’s right to your door and onto your counter for you, no lugging heavy grocery bags in from the heat. Find out more about Schwan’s products and delivery schedule in your area on the Schwan’s website.
