Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

I don’t know what it is about me and strawberries, but I am obsessed!  I made a special trip to Costco just to get their amazing strawberries.  I love buying strawberries when they are in season and perfectly ripe and juicy.  I love using them in recipes, especially homemade jam.  That is if they make it to the recipe!  I ate one pound all by myself yesterday!  They were just so good I kept eating them one by one.  Needless to say I had to make another trip to get some more strawberries because we ended up making 3 batches of this amazing strawberry lemonade.

I have always loved strawberry lemonade and I order it wherever we go.  Since I didn’t grow up on soda I have always preferred strawberry lemonade and it quenches your thirst so well especially on a hot summer day!

Let me just tell you how amazing this turned out.  I had a little helper in the kitchen today. We cut the fresh strawberries and squeezed the lemons by hand into the blender.  This recipe is the perfect amount of lemon and the perfect amount of strawberries.  I sliced up some fresh strawberries and poured the drink into into a glass with ice on top.  And oh yum…  the froth on top of this made the drink incredible.  We will be making this weekly at our house and it also makes such a fun summer drink!

  1. I went through a time in my life where everywhere I went, if they served strawberry lemonade I ordered it. Never made it at home though!

  2. This looks so good! If you use sugar instead of the agave nectar, would you still use 1/4 c, or would the amount be different?

  3. this sounds delicious, just pinned!

    i jest made this, but used frozen strawberries (i freeze all my fruits ‘n naners fer smoothies and use either fruit juice or almond milk instead of water/ice – icky when those start meltin”) and replaced the agave nectar with locally grown honey. was delish 😀

  9. You could cut up some strawberry’s and make them a juice and pour them into a ice tray and freeze them and use the cubes as ice instead of just ice or even cut up the strawberry’s and freeze them and use them as ice cubes and have a yummy snack afterwards. If you make strawberry juice ice your drink wont water down and you could use them again and again or even pour like tea over them and as they melt you could have strawberry tea or just water and have strawberry water.

  10. I just made two batches of this deliciousness for a party and it was loved by all! Thanks so much for sucj an easy, fun drink 🙂

  11. Pam Hume says:

    this looks so delicious!! cant wait to try this recipe.

  12. The strawberry lemonade looks so delish, but I have one question. How long will the drink last? Can I store it in the fridge for a week and then make another batch at the end of the week?

  13. Natasha Trousdale says:

    How many quarts/gallons would this make. I am planning a small sweet 16 sleepover party that’ll have 6 of my friends and I’m trying to calculate costs.

  14. How could you adapt this using Splenda or another artificial sweetener for diabetics? Please let me know.

  15. Just to let you know that when I try to “Pin” your Strawberry Lemonade recipe, your Dark Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bars recipe shows up with the Strawberry Lemonade picture. I’d love to share this recipe but it’s too confusing as it is now. I hope you can fix this soon.

      I pinned the recipe critic-then on the search on the pin page I typed in strawberry lemonade by the food critic and found it that way

  16. I think I am going to have to try that one out It would be good as a summer time drink.

  1. […] GOOD does this look? I need to make some….now! […]

  2. […] there’s just so much sugar in them.  Plus, I like to know what’s in my drink.  This lemonade recipe from the Recipe Critic caught my eye because it’s healthy, low in ingredients, and looked so […]
