Mine didn’t look like the picture online here’s how it looked:

I’m not sure what I did wrong, maybe I didn’t use a fine enough strainer I’m not sure. It still tasted good. Hubby was a little off putted by the little berry seeds that did make it through the strainer, but over all it was nice and refreshing.

2 cups whole frozen strawberries
32 fluid ounces, brewed tea, make hot then let cool
1/3 cup white sugar (amount can vary depending on desired sweetness)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 punnet of fresh strawberries
mint leaves
ice

Blend frozen strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then strain. (Apprantly I had the super frozen iced bag so I had to add some of the tea to the blender in order to get it to blend.)
