Like the moment I met my husband, and I just knew. I knew instantly! Right away, sitting across from him at South of Beale in downtown Memphis, I just knew we’d get married and have babies and want to kill each other daily for the rest of our lives. Instant magic.
And that first moment I saw my son, and my heart was positively captured. He was so ugly! Wrinkly and stark white and somehow red all at once, with a shock of black hair on top of his head, and a general he-doesn’t-look-like-what-I-thought-he’d-look-like to it, it was this moment of unbearable expansion of that feeling in my chest. Like the feeling you get behind your eyelids when you close your eyes and look up to the sun. Instant magic.
And then there was that time when I haphazardly poured together three simple ingredients, on a pregnant, mini Whole30, inspired by the super strawberry-ness of the sparkling water we’d been drinking and simultaneously by the refreshing fruitiness of the infamous Starbucks “pink drink,” on which I’d gorged myself (OK… I had two in a fortnight) before starting our tiny round.
this healthy pink drink strawberry refresher is an unsweetened, Whole30 mocktail made with only three ingredients. With its subtle strawberry flavor and creaminess, it’s super refreshing and hydrating, since it’s caffeine free! This healthy pink drink strawberry refresher is vegan and paleo, too, as well as a great Whole30 mocktail type drink, and totally guilt-free since it’s unsweetened
- 1 cup unsweetened strawberry sparkling water like Perrier or bubly
- 1/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries
- 1/2 cup coconut milk from carton unsweetened if on Whole30; vanilla is great otherwise
- Pour freeze-dried strawberries in a serving cup then pour Perrier strawberry sparkling water over. Stir well and let sit for a couple of minutes to steep. Add ice to glass then pour coconut milk over. Stir and serve.
