The Ultimate Summer Freak Shake With Ribena

Summer vibes are in full force and my God is the sun glorious! I was so excited when the guys at Ribena got in touch with me to challenge me to re-think my perceptions of the classic squash drink and create a brand new recipe. Who couldn’t resist a cheeky strawberry freak shake to enjoy in the sunshine? Read on for the full recipe, and accidental cat candids!

A mason jar or glass
Straws to add your fruit to.

Slice the rest of your remaining strawberries into the bottom of your glass and pour the strawberry mixture over the top until almost to the brim of your glass. Stick the fruit sticks in and sprinkle your nuts- then enjoy!
