Frozen Lemonade Recipe

Tips and tricks for making frozen lemonade:

  • make it easy by using premade lemonade and adding some natural flavors too
  • if you like it really sour, then omit the sugar. Add sugar little by little to get it to the sweetness you prefer
  • using lemon zest is the key to this recipe, but did you know that you can freeze lemon zest? While you are going to the trouble of zesting lemons, freeze some for later
  • don’t forget to use a hand juice when squeezing the lemons (I did not in the video below). It will catch the seeds for you for a seedless drink.

What can I do with lemon rind and leftover lemon pieces?

  • Lemon is a natural cleaning element. Pop any extra rind or lemon ends into the garbage disposal to clean the muck and make your disposal smell lemon-fresh
  • You can freeze lemon zest for later use. Lemon zest gives, well a zest to most recipes so it’s nice to have on hand

How do you make Frozen Lemonade?

  1. in a blender, pour premade lemonade
  2. add lemon zest and juice from freshly squeezed lemons
  3. add sugar and ice
  4. blend well
  5. enjoy!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: none
  • Total Time: 31 minute

  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • zest from one lemon
  • fresh-squeezed juice from 2 lemons
  • 3 cups of ice

This drink is best when you drink this right away. Once it melts, the ice will dilute the drink
