Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 5 MINUTES

cook time: 5 MINUTES

total time: 10 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • One dozen strawberries + extra for garnish
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup lemon juice (about 8 lemons) + wedges for garnish
  • 2 cups ice

Directions

1

In a small saucepan, add water and sugar and heat over low/medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves entirely (about 3 to 4 minutes) to make a simple syrup. Set aside and allow to cool.

2

While your simple syrup is cooling, wash and dice up all of your strawberries. Set aside.

3

Squeeze all of your lemons (about 8 whole lemons) using a hand press. Remember to keep a few extra wedges for garnish if desired.

4

Once your simple syrup has cooled, add everything but ice into a blender and blend for about 90 seconds until well blended.

5

Pour your blended mixture over a strainer so that the liquid drains into a jug or canister of your choice. Reserve all liquid and discard the leftover strawberry purée.

6

Add about half a cup of ice to each glass and pour about 1 cup of lemonade over ice and garnish with a lemon wedge or strawberry if desired. Enjoy!

    So refreshing…perfect hot weather drink!

  2. Jane

    Does anyone know if you can make this last more than one day? Can u make it ahead of time without going bad?

    • Trey

      This recipe only yields 4 servings- that’s why it didn’t last more than a day. If you have the extra containers available, you can double or triple the recipe ingredients to make 8-12 drinks. For another idea, you can make popsicles too!

      • Lori

        I like the popsicle idea!

  3. Karen

    I can something similar to this as a concentrate, then we add 7up or sprite instead of water. We enjoy it all winter long. You can also swap out raspberries for the strawberries. Yummy!

    • jdkdda@gmail.com

      I would love your concentrate recipe!!! Do you mind sharing?

  4. queen62

    Peel lemons remove the seeds place in vitamix with water and strain. Place strawberries, blueberries or any berry blend on high no straining needed.

  5. Lolie

    Sounds delicious, I love strawberry lemonade! Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Tammy

    I read recently to cut a little of the lemon off the bottom before you put in the squeezer. Then the juice can escape through the holes in the squeezer.

  7. Matt

    A friend of mine made something similar last week but blended ice with it to make it a frozen lemonade. We also used sweetleaf stevia drops to give it sweetness without using sugar. It was delicious.

  8. Luv

    I have a bottle of lemon juice, will that work or will it taste bad?

    • Sirenna

      Bottled lemon juice is okay.

  9. Sirenna

    The video COMPLETELY leaves out adding the lemon juice! LOLOLOL
