My good friend, Shannon, recently released her second children’s book, The Lemonade Stand. Once again, I had the pleasure of working with her on the book. Beautifully illustrated by the talented Aaron Kizer, it tells the story of two boys who find a toy they want RIGHT NOW. Thankfully, they are friends with Lauren and Taylor who help the boys find a way to earn money to save, spend and share.
In honor of The Lemonade Stand, I whipped up a pitcher of lemonade, but not just any lemonade. Oh no. Lauren and Taylor approved lemonade. This recipe is delicious, and I can see why Lauren and Taylor’s lemonade stand is so popular in their neighborhood.
I hate it when my ice melts and dilutes my lemonade, so I made lemonade ice cubes. To make them fancy, I put blueberries in the ice cube tray before adding the lemonade. You could also substitute strawberries, raspberries, lemon wedges or even fresh mint.
To celebrate the release of Shannon’s new book, she is giving away an iPad Mini. Look for the entry form and details after the recipe.
