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

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.
<p>what if we don't have that..um..ice blender? (if that's what we call it..)</p>
<p>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. <br>I did something similar with my <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Frozen-Hard-Lemonade-Slushie/" rel="nofollow">Slushie Instructable</a>.</p>
<p>Hi,</p><p>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. Greetings Irma</p>
<p>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.</p>
Thanks for your reply!<br>Kind regards, Irma
nice , in lebanon we put Blossom water (1tbs ) try it
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 &amp; use the resulting red/yellow cubes in regular lemonade. They'd look gorgeous floating around in a glass like that.
<p>we are excited to prepare it thank you for your comments</p>
<p>That sounds like it would be delicious! That especially sounds like it would be cute as floating ice cubes :)</p>
Ooooh, that sounds good!
<p>try infusing the simple syrup with the lemon zest to make a stronger lemonade!</p><p>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</p><p>(it won't taste too watery because of the extra lemon zest :)</p>
Tastes delicious
Your pitcher isn't ugly I have the same one till it &quot;mysteriously&quot; got lost ;)
<p>Silly pitcher wandering away from you :P</p>
One word - YUM.
best lamonade ever.
<p>It really is quite delicious :)</p>
Tried it with OJ. Perfect cooler!
Morning Slushie!
Like it
Thank you :)
I just tried it and it was AMAZING
I'm glad you liked it!
So refreshing! Thx for sharing :)
Thanks for looking :)
I made changes
Dude awesome
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! <br>
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!
Just made some! It was deeelicious! Making more right now :D, thanks for sharing
Yay! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
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 <strong><em>definitely</em></strong>! 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 :(
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. <br> <br>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 &quot;fresh squeezed&quot; than anything you can get from a carton or bottle! <br> <br>You can also make ice-tea cubes this way and make frozen slushy tea or tea-lemonade. <br> <br>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. <br>If you then have left-over lemon syrup, mix it 50/50 with vodka and chill or freeze it for lemoncello.
Nice idea!
Very :)
