Homemade Strawberry Lemonade
If you are a fan of Wendy’s Strawberry lemonade or Starbucks strawberry lemonade then you are going to love this tasty summer drink! Although it was the Red Robin’s strawberry lemonade with chunks of strawberries in it that was the motivation for creating this delicious strawberry lemonade.
This easy lemonade recipe is even better then those though, because you can make it at home and don’t have to leave the house! Aside from that I also think this easy homemade strawberry lemonade recipe tastes better then any of the others!
You can make this lemonade recipe with either frozen strawberries or fresh strawberries. Personally I prefer to use frozen strawberries when making this strawberry lemonade drink. If you are buying frozen strawberries for this tasty summer drink, make sure you buy the unsweetened ones. This lemonade recipe is sweetened with the lemonade already.
I have a tendency to buy lots of strawberries when I see them on sale for dirt cheap and then I end up wondering what to make with fresh strawberries. Thankfully there are lots of things to make with fresh strawberries or I can freeze them because strawberries freeze really well. What I like to do is freeze strawberries and later use them in recipes like this fresh strawberry lemonade.
If you are buying fresh strawberries then you can freeze them and then use them to make this tasty strawberry lemonade recipe or you can use them fresh.
If you want to get fancy with this strawberry lemonade you can make some lemon sugar and dip the rim of the glasses in it before pouring your homemade lemonade into the glass.
Fruit lemonade is one of our favorite summertime drinks and we like to rotate between this fresh strawberry lemonade, watermelon lemonade, berry lemonade and fresh squeezed lemonade. All of these lemonade recipes are perfect for summer and my whole family loves them.
