timesaving tips to streamline recipes
  • Prepare the lemon juice mixture ahead of time. You can also do the same with the sugar water. Keep the lemon juice and sugar water in ice cubes in your freezer and they will be ready to use when you are. 
  • Prepare the strawberries the evening before by washing, removing stems, and slicing. 
  • Store the fresh-squeezed lemonade in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.

How to Make Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry lemonade is a cool, refreshing drink for spring or summer. There’s no need to visit a restaurant to taste it. All you need is some simple ingredients and a blender.


Strawberry lemonade
Makes 4 servings

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 pint (2 cups) strawberries
  • Ice (optional)
  • Lemon slices, sliced strawberries, mint, chocolate mint, or other garnish (optional)

Quick strawberry lemonade

  • 3/4 cup of lemon juice (bottled is fine, fresh if preferred)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1.5 to 2 cups of fresh strawberries
  • 5 cups of water (still or sparkling, as preferred)

Creamy strawberry lemonade
Makes 4 servings

  • 4 lemons and sugar to taste; or lemonade powder (whichever you prefer)
  • 1 pint strawberries
  • Ice (optional)

Method1Strawberry Lemonade

  1. 1Make the lemonade. Combine the water, sugar, and lemon juice. It may be necessary to bring the water to a boil first, to get all the sugar to dissolve.
  2. 2Remove the stems, hulls, and any bad spots from the strawberries. You can use more or fewer strawberries if you wish to.
  3. 3Place the strawberries in a blender with lemonade to cover generously. Add a bit of ice if you would like more of a smoothie or slushy consistency. You can also freeze the strawberries instead of adding ice.
  4. 4Blend until mixed. Once it is mixed, pour it into a pitcher with the remainder of the lemonade, and stir.
    • Blending in only part of the liquid at first helps to get the strawberries blended more smoothly.
  5. 5Serve the strawberry lemonade. Pour into glasses and float sliced or halved strawberries to the top. Garnish the rim of the glass with a slice of fresh lemon, if you like. Serve chilled with pink straws for extra flair.

  2. 2Pour the lemon juice and sugar into the serving jug or pitcher. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  3. 3Pour the blended strawberries into the lemon juice and sugar mixture. Stir well to combine.
  4. 4Done. The strawberry lemonade is now ready for serving. Add ice cubes before pouring. If not serving immediately, keep chilled in the refrigerator.

Method3Creamy Strawberry Lemonade

This method takes a little longer, as it requires mashing before blending, to produce a creamy texture and then needs to be chilled for a while before consuming.

  1. 1Make lemonade. You can fresh-squeeze the lemonade from real lemons, or us a packet. The idea is for it to be regular lemonade, so use your favorite way of making lemonade for the base.
  2. 2Wash and slice the strawberries. In a different bowl, add the strawberries. With a masher, mash the strawberries until creamy.
  3. 3Blend the strawberries into the lemonade. Mix until the composition is smooth and thoroughly blended.
