These days we are spending a lot of time at home, I encourage everyone to enjoy the sunshine, our summers are short. Sun provides us with the all mighty vitamin D, as well activates our serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters and helps set our circadian rhythm for better sleep. This is a fun recipe that you can share with your kids while kicking back in the back yard enjoying some vitamin D : ) This time of year our fruits and vegetables are fresh and locally sourced so they are packed with so many nutrients. I do my best to incorporate them into our diet as much as possible, stock up for the Winter months. At Docere we are also featuring our shot bar special, check it out if you are feeling like you need an additional boost.
Healthy Berry Margarita (for kids too!)
2 tbsp Coconut Sugar (optional)
1 Lime (sliced into wedges, juiced, divided)
2 cups Frozen Berries
10 Ice Cubes
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 pint Soda Water
Add the berries, ice, maple syrup, soda water and remaining lime juice to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Garnish with lime wedges and enjoy!
If you want to fancy them up put the coconut sugar in a shallow bowl. Take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of the glass. Dip the rim of the glass into the coconut sugar, being sure to cover the rim.
