Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

This is by far, one of my favorite drinks on earth. Oddly enough, I've never made it myself with fresh strawberries.

So simple, too. It is perfect for an afternoon refresher or to take to that last minute BBQ. All you need are three things:

1. frozen lemonade concentrate (12oz)
2. about 2 cups strawberries, pureed or blended
3. water

First, puree the berries. I stopped my blender before they were perfectly blended because I wanted a few chunks of strawberries in my lemonade. Next, make your lemonade according to the can. Pour your pureed berries into the lemonade and stir. (You will need to stir/shake it up any time it sits for a while, as the berry puree will sink to the bottom.) Add a few freshly cut berries if you wish. Next time, maybe I'll try my hand at making fresh lemonade to combine with the strawberries.

Now you're set for a nice afternoon outside in the sunshine!


  1. Wow! That is super red lemonade! Must be the difference between using fresh strawberries and...I don't know what they use in restaurants...some kind of strawberry syrup? Looks yummy! :)

  2. I know, it is red huh?! It must be. That's my only guess. If you used less strawberries, it may not be as red.

  3. We LOVE strawberry lemonade at our house too. This looks divine! Thanks for inviting me over and I am now following you too :)

  5. Oh, what a great idea. I've never thought to make my own with fresh strawberries and now that they are all over the grocery stores at great prices I might have to make myself a little drink.
