Limonana | Frozen Mint Lemonade |National Drink of Israel

I love drinks made with Mint as they are very refreshing and makes as feel so fresh .  It is the perfect way to Hot Humid afternoons even though its cold here I just needed a refresher so prepared this healthy and super yummy Frozen mint lemonade which I love to drink a lot. Limonana is an national drink of Israel but you might be knowing we get them in streets in india in name of pudhina chikangi right ? the only difference is these are frozen and slushy delights which make them more refreshing .

Limonana is must needed drink of middle eastern countries and is a very simple , easy to make lemonade slush.  You can avoid straining the  juice as it gives more refreshing taste. Perfect drink to survive in Hot and humid weather  but can be a refreshing one any time of a year .Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#37.Lets quickly move on to the drink recipe ..
