What is strawberry lemonade?
It's a delightful combination of lemon juice, water, sugar, and pureed strawberries. The tart flavor of the lemon and the sweetness from the sugar really bring out the flavor of the strawberries. This drink is my favorite variation of lemonade because it's so pretty and refreshing.
Is it healthy?
As long as one enjoys it in moderation, this drink is healthy. It does contain large amounts of vitamin C--almost 1 ½ times the recommended daily value! Each serving contains 227 calories. For the full nutrition facts, scroll to the bottom of the recipe card.
Is pink lemonade the same as strawberry lemonade?
No, they aren't the same. Pink lemonade is simply regular lemonade with food coloring added, while strawberry lemonade actually has strawberries in it.
Can you freeze lemonade?
Yes, you can definitely freeze lemonade. Try freezing it in popsicles, or simply breaking the frozen lemonade into a slushie.
Can I make this ahead of time?
Yes, you can make this drink in advance. Freeze it in a large plastic tub with a lid for several hours, then take it out to thaw before enjoying. Break up clumps with a fork to give the drink a slushie texture.
How to Make
Gather the ingredients. You'll need frozen strawberries, freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar, and water.
Dump the frozen strawberries, lemon juice, and sugar into a blender.
Blend until smooth, adding a little water if needed.
Taste the drink and adjust the amount of lemon juice and sugar to taste. Pour into glasses, garnish, and enjoy!
- Strawberry Mint Version: puree a handful of fresh mint leaves along with the strawberries.
- Lemon-Lime Version: substitute half of the lemon juice with freshly squeezed lime juice.
- Slushie Version: make the drink as described in the recipe card, then pour it into a clean ice cream tub and freeze it for 4-6 hours. Let it stand at room temperature and break up any clumps with a fork to give the drink a slushie texture. Serve immediately.
- Make sure the berries are fully frozen for a thick, slushie-like texture.
- Freshly squeeze your own lemon juice for the best taste.
- Adjust the sour-sweet balance to your taste by adding more lemon juice or sugar.
