Step 1: Supplies

If you want to make this uber easy, just buy lemonade or lemonade mix and then you just need ice cube trays and a blender.

Also, I just want to say, I particularly like this method for making frozen lemonade because you are not diluting it.  It is just delicious lemonade with more delicious lemonade!

Ingredients:
  • Lemons or lemon juice (I ended up juicing 8 lemons to make 1 cup of lemon juice)
  • Water (you'll need some for the simple syrup, if you make that, and for the lemonade)
  • Sugar or simple syrup
Tools: This recipe makes about 3 - 4 servings based on how much you want.

Step 2: Make Simple Syrup

Now, you don't have to do this, but it is much better for blending with your lemon juice and water.

This was my first time doing this and I would strongly suggest it as it makes the lemonade so much better and it is so, so, so easy to do.

The directions are provided here by jessyratfink

I wasn't sure how much I would do so I did 4 cups of water and sugars worth.  For my lemonade, I ended up adding 1 1/2 cups to go with the rest of my ingredients.  So you don't need to make as much for me unless you want it for later!

try infusing the simple syrup with the lemon zest to make a stronger lemonade!

you can fill up a glass with the cubes and pour some water over, let it sit for a bit, and it makes awesome ice cold lemonade :DDDD

(it won't taste too watery because of the extra lemon zest :)

I don't know what they're called in English but adding dried sour plums (asam boi) would go great with this cooling treat! Works with lime, apple and ambra juice as well!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  Girlie1 year ago
All of that sounds like it would be great! I particularly love lime!
Nice! I have an abundance of mint that would be great with this.
Oh yeah! There are so many things you can add to make this more amazing!

Could you make a strawberry frozen lemonade?
Someone up thread mentioned freezing the strawberries and using them instead of the ice cubes, which is pretty brilliant.
I would say definitely! I was tempted to try actually since I just got new strawberries, but I need some lemons! I plan on posting some pictures and explaining my own method if I get it made up!
Yummm. Now I want one :O
EAT ONE NOW!
I don't have lemons :(
go buy some now!.....iam lucky in Greece (where i live) we have lemon trees almost everywhere. Lemons, lemons, lemons.......wow
Can you get ahold of lemon juice? It is the way to go, but I think store-bought lemonade can work well too :)
Let's search the stores for lemons!!!!

You can just freeze your strawberries and blend in--just wash and pat dry; take off the leafy part and freeze in a single layer on a cookie sheet or shallow pan. Bag 'em in a ziploc with as much air squeezed out as possible. Don't need to thaw.

If you add the juice of one lemon or lime to a container of store bought or frozen orange juice it will taste much more like "fresh squeezed" than anything you can get from a carton or bottle!

You can also make ice-tea cubes this way and make frozen slushy tea or tea-lemonade.

And I would bet that mixing in a shot or two of some clear adult beverage might not go amiss on a hot day either!

OK, that looks nice, but if you want to take it to the next level, when you're making the simple syrup, peel the lemon zest (with a vegetable peeler, or grate it with a fine grater) and put it all in with the syrup. Cook this up for half an hour or more and the lemon essence will infuse into the sugar syrup.
If you then have left-over lemon syrup, mix it 50/50 with vodka and chill or freeze it for lemoncello.
