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!

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of 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!

  • 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.

what if we don't have that..um..ice blender? (if that's what we call it..)

Another option is to put the ice cubes in a zip lock plastic bag, seal it up, and smash the bag with something to break up the cubes (like a wooden spoon or a meat tenderizer, just try to not tear the bag). I actually found my cubes to be fairly soft and if you make them small like these, it should be fairly easy to just smash them up.
I did something similar with my Slushie Instructable.

I made it and it was delicious. I made also the quick version, with fresh lemonjuice with ice and sugarsyrup. But maybe you have a tip for me. The liquid 'splits' easily in a water/ice section and the rest. I have to stir constently in my glass to keep it nice homegeneous. Do you know how to avoid this? Thanks for your advice.

It is going to separate like that when it melts, one thing you could do is mix more frozen ice cubes in and less liquid. Might keep it frozen longer.

Thanks for your reply!
Kind regards, Irma

This would taste amazing with pomegranate molasses added to it, adjusting sweetness to personal taste. You could also pour a little bit of the pomegranate molasses into each cube & use the resulting red/yellow cubes in regular lemonade. They'd look gorgeous floating around in a glass like that.

That sounds like it would be delicious! That especially sounds like it would be cute as floating ice cubes :)

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)  Girlie2 years 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.
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  kittyrocks6012 years 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
