Easy Frozen Lemonade

Picture of Easy Frozen Lemonade
What is better on a hot summer day than a nice cold glass of Lemonade?  A Frozen Lemonade Slushie, of course!  This is a really easy recipe to get an awesome glass of frozen lemonade slush!

I'm experimenting with adding my own Pin It button using the Pinterest Widget Builder Page.  If you click the pin it button and pin this (which would be awesome) it will close the page when you are done :(  
You can get around this by clicking on the Pin it button to open in a new tab.  After you are done pinning, give it a few seconds and that new tab will automatically close.  I would suggest doing it this way!

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!

  • 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.

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)  Girlie9 months ago
All of that sounds like it would be great! I particularly love lime!

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.
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kittyrocks6019 months ago
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

I don't have lemons :(

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.

Great recipe!

I think in step 4 you meant to say "simple syrup" instead of "simple sugar"?
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  gwengler9 months ago
Right you are! Thanks, it has been changed :)
Oh haha never mind and thnks!!!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  neonpenguins179 months ago
No problem! It's really however much you want. I did make some normal sized ice cubes too and I'd guess about 8 should be enough.
