Quick Strawberry Lemonade

This past week in NC we’ve been enduring quite a heat wave, with temps into the 90’s!  When it gets that hot, I start to crave lemonade, which to me is the ultimate summer thirst quencher.  Adding fresh fruit is an easy and quick way to take it up a notch not only in flavor and visual appeal, but also nutritionally!
