Easy Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

It’s strawberry season around here! Last week we went and picked our weight in fresh, juicy strawberries. While we were at the strawberry field, we tried some strawberry lemonade and my kids instantly wanted to recreate it when we got home.

So, we went to the kitchen and they helped me whip up this delicious and oh so easy strawberry lemonade recipe.

Since the 4th of July is right around the corner, we garnished it with a few blueberries. This drink would be a perfect addition to your 4th of July plans and takes no time at all!

So, How Do You Make Strawberry Lemonade?

Strawberry Lemonade Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Fresh Strawberries (stem cut off & rinsed)
  • 1/2 Cup Water

Easy Strawberry Lemonade Recipe Directions

Start by making a basic lemonade. We used a frozen lemonade concentrate but you can buy lemonade or make it homemade with this recipe.

Then, add the 2 cups of fresh strawberries and 1/4 cup water to a food processor. We used our Ninja blender and it worked like a charm. Blend until it’s smooth with no strawberry chunks. Who wants to drink chunky lemonade? Not me!

It’s time to mix that strawberry lemonade together. Measure out 1 cup of of the strawberry puree you just blended and add it to the pre-made lemonade. Stir together until well mixed.

Now, it’s time to pour into a glass full of ice and garnish with a few blueberries and a strawberry. The presentation makes it look WAAAAAY fancier than the simple recipe indicates. It’s so festive for a summer BBQ.

Can You Make It Spiked Strawberry Lemonade?

YES!!!! Looking for a fun twist on a an adult summer beverage? Make the recipe like above but add 1 cup of vodka or rum to your lemonade and stir.

We often leave the lemonade un-spiked in the pitcher and simply add 1 shot of vodka or rum to the adult’s lemonade.
