Lemony Sip-It!
No need to battle the bees (and calories) at carnivals or amusement parks. We swapped sinfully sugary frozen lemonade for an equally sweet guilt-free recipe. Start blending, lemon-lovers! P.S. This also ROCKS when made with pink lemonade mix!


2 tsp. Crystal Light Lemonade powdered drink mix (2 On The Go packets )

1 tsp. fat-free powdered non-dairy creamer (like Coffee-mate Original Fat Free)

1 1/2 cups crushed iced or 8 - 10 ice cubes

Directions: Dissolve creamer in 1/4 cup warm water, and mix well. Add 1 1/4 cups cold water and Crystal Light. Mix well. Place mixture in a blender with the ice. Blend at high speed until thoroughly blended. (If using ice cubes, start with half of the ice. Stop blending occasionally to add a cube or two, and then continue blending -- repeat until desired consistency is reached.) Pour into a tall glass, and then spoon and/or sip your way to lemon satisfaction! (Pssst... for an even slushier and less liquidy consistency, place in the freezer for about 20 minutes before enjoying!) MAKES 1 SERVING
