Fresh Strawberry Lemonade
If you can still find sweet, ripe strawberries, it isn’t too late to make this delicious fresh strawberry lemonade! And let me tell you, it’s still so hot and muggy in my neck of the woods, I would gladly enjoy this any day during the next week or beyond, I’m sure.
A friend I knew briefly a few years ago sent me this recipe last week and it sounded so refreshing and tasty that I had to make it immediately. Needless to say, my kids went crazy for this. It was tart and sweet and absolutely fantastic. Thanks, Tara!
By the way, I think you could use many a berry-swap for this recipe: raspberry lemonade, blueberry lemonade…the options seem endless!

Recipe Source: from Tara S.
8 cups of juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 5-8 lemons)
1 cup sugar
2 cups sliced, fresh strawberries
- Combine the lemon juice and sugar in a blender and blend for about 30 seconds to combine. Add the strawberries and puree or pulse until the strawberries are at the desired chunkiness. I liked the strawberries slightly chunky but my husband preferred it to be more smooth – blend to your own preference!
- Pour the lemon/strawberry mixture into a pitcher and add 4 cups of cold water. Mix well and serve chilled.
