Strawberry Lemonade Slushie Recipe

The kids wanted lemonade slushies with a picnic lunch today.  I didn't have any ice so I had to improvise. This is what I came up with and its YUMMY! This recipe is certainly not rocket science so feel free to improvise to meet your own tastes.
Printable Recipe

Pink lemonade powder to make 1.5 quarts (this is the size of my blender)
2c. frozen strawberries
Cold Water
1 tsp honey
*Put lemonade, strawberries and honey in the blender, fill the rest of the way with cold water.
*Blend until consistency resembles slushie. 
*Pour and enjoy!
** if you like your drinks more tart you can leave out the honey, but honey is great for helping out those seasonal allergies!

Peach Margarita Bread

Printable Recipe
In mixer bowl:
2  1/4 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix on "stir" speed a few seconds, then add:
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 oz. Mike's Peach Margarita alcoholic beverage (flavored beer, you know, like Mike's hard lemonade)
Beat on speed 2 for a couple of minutes until all ingredients are blended. 
Pour into an 8 inch loaf pan (it makes a small loaf, I doubled it and made two -- I don't think you would want to double it and put it in a larger loaf pan because it might not get done enough in the middle).  
Bake at 400 degrees, 45 minutes.  Cool well before serving and slice with a sharp bread knife.

Lemon Poppyseed Scones

These are my favorite and I always use the base recipe for other scone combinations.
Printable Recipe
With a mixer or pastry cutter or large forks, whatever suites your fancy;
Mix until it resembles small crumbs:
1/3 c. cold butter
2 c. flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP poppy seeds

In a 1 c. liquid measuring cup pour 3/4 c. milk or soymilk and to that add 2 TBSP of lemon juice.
Add to the crumb mixture and mix just until combined.

Pat into a 1 inch thick circle on a floured surface and then cut into slices. Pizza style, I usually get 8 slices.
Sprinkle with sugar if so desired.

Bake at 425 for roughly 12 minutes depending on your oven.  They will be golden brown on the outside.
We like to eat ours with butter but feel free to eat them however you please;)

I don't have the energy to go photograph them right now so use your imaginations!
