Lemon Ginger Slushy

Venice, CA

I mentioned my lemon ginger slushy in my very first Wellness Series this summer and wanted to do a full blog post with the recipe since I’ve received so many comments and DMs about them.  They are so delicious and refreshing – AND you can even turn them into a “healthy-ish” cocktail by adding a splash of vodka! Add mint or basil to garnish it, pick up some fun straws, and you’ve got yourself the easiest drink to sip on throughout the day or serve at a party.  Something I experimented with recently is adding the entire lemon with the peel into the blender.  The peel of the lemon has the most nutrients and is incredibly alkalizing.  It also makes the drink a more vibrant shade of yellow.  If you want a sweeter slushie, add honey, coconut nectar or coconut sugar.  I personally love mine tart though!  For this week’s giveaway, I am sending one lucky reader this gorgeous bar tray (a $450 value) from one of my favorite designers; St. Frank.  I’m obsessed with their home decor pieces and have this oversized print in my entry.   The ladies at St. Frank were kind enough to connect me with Simply Framed; an online custom, mail-in framing shop.  They created this beautiful art hanging above my bar with a tunic I picked up in Mexico a few months ago.  I love looking around my home and seeing pieces from my travels in every corner!  To enter this week’s giveaway, simply sign up for my newsletter, and comment below “Signed up!” with your email.  XO
