This frozen strawberry lemonade recipe is the perfect summer drink. Sweet, tangy, cool, and thirst quenching. I grew up not liking lemonade. For the longest time, I thought it was because I don't like lemons because I enjoyed pink lemonade and other flavored lemonades.
Turns out, I needed to try the good stuff – homemade. Last summer, my best friend made the best tasting homemade lemonade ever. Everyone knew it was good if I willingly drank two glasses of it. At some point, we'll need her to share that sweet nectar with you. It was NOT a quick recipe, but it was worth the wait.
Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
This is pretty darn good for a quick homemade drink recipe. Plus, it won't get that watered down taste as the summer heat melts your ice cubes. Now I can't wait to go strawberry picking again because we'll be blending up many batches of this tasty frozen strawberry lemonade throughout the summer!
Juice from 6 lemons
3 Cups of water
½ Cups sugar
½ Cup strawberries
Some mint leaves
Add all of the ingredients to your blender and pulse for two minutes or until the ice is crushed. Your drink should look icy and well blended.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!
Tips and suggestions: This frozen strawberry lemonade recipe is delicious with or without the mint, so it's OK if you don't have any on hand. It's wonderfully refreshing and I suggest trying it with the mint at least once though!
Serve in mason jar glasses with fun , colorful straws. You can also decorate the glasses with a lemon wedge or half a strawberry.
Don't have any strawberries on hand or want to experiment? Substitute a half cup of any other fruit in place of the strawberries.
