Did you know that one cup of strawberries has more vitamin C than an orange? So does this count when I eat a cup of strawberries in my strawberry scone?
Strawberries are an excellent source of the water-soluble nutrient. In fact, a serving of eight medium strawberries provides 96 milligrams of vitamin C or 160 percent of the recommended Daily Value (60mg). That's more vitamin C than one medium orange, which contains 74 milligrams of vitamin C. (http://www.calstrawberry.com/health/vitaminc.asp)
Did you know you can use a frozen strawberry in lieu of ice water? Picture a wonderful strawberry lemonade with frozen strawberries floating in lemonade.
a Sutton creation!
2 cups cups strawberries
1-2 cups Xagave
3-4 cups cold water
Puree 1 1/2 cups of strawberries and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in your Bosch blender until smooth.
You can remove most of the strawberry seeds by forcing it through a fine sieve but we enjoy everything about a strawberry, so I took all the blended strawberry mixture.
Blend together pureed strawberry mixture with remaining lemon juice. Add 1 cup Xagave and water in a large pitcher. Taste, add more Xagave if you like it sweeter!
*Use your Bosch citrus juicer to make fast lemon juice!
Use the lemon rind to clean stains on your counter. Well...not your granite counter. The lemon will get most the stains out and leave your kitchen smelling wonderful.
