Fresh Squeezed Strawberry Lemonade

I am sorry I have been MIA for a bit. Real life has been hectic, lots of changes and new beginnings coming soon in the next month so I have had virtually no time for blog writing. Aside from the craziness of life, we have been enjoying the summer weather and getting out and about with the boys. This past weekend we went to Strawberry Fest in a town nearby. Every year they have this fest with everything strawberry! And of course we can’t leave without picking up some locally grown strawberries!

I decided to try some new things using these sweet, super juicy berries that we can’t get all year round. One recipe, at the request of my 3 year old, was fresh strawberry lemonade. So refreshing and everything about it says summer! Plus, it uses all real ingredients so it is much healthier and better tasting than the syrupy, heavy strawberry lemonade you may be able to purchase at the grocery store.

Delicious, refreshing strawberry lemonade!!

It got two thumbs up from the boys and myself!

Fresh Strawberry Lemonade

Yields: 4 cups

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (can also use store bought in a pinch)
  • 2 1/2 cups cold water
  • 2-4 tablespoons natural/ organic sugar *see note below
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries *see note below
  • 1/2 cup ice

Note: I like my lemonade to still have some tartness to it so I only used 2 T of sugar. Adjust accordingly to your taste. For the strawberries, if you would like a bit of a frostier consistency, use frozen strawberries, can also freeze your fresh strawberries before using!

1. Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth! Enjoy!!

Easy peasy!!
