Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap - Strawberry Lemonade

We had some strawberries in our fridge and I decided to make a thick slushy lemonade with them. Turned out so good and felt like summer in a glass.

Strawberry Lemonade
(makes 1 quart)

1 container sliced strawberries
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
3/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups ice cubes (can use less)

In a blender process all ingredients until smooth. Drink immediately.

I don't have a recipe-appropriate blog, but a great way to make strawberry lemonade midwinter is with frozen whole strawberries in place of the ice cubes. I freeze the berries whole on cookie sheets so they're separate in freezer bags. Voila - instant summer in the off season!

oooh, thanks I'm going to try this! My daughter always orders strawberry lemonade when we go out!

One question, did you squeeze real lemons for the juice, or did you use the stuff in the bottle?

That sounds delicious and so summer-y! thanks.

I picked up strawberries and lemons and made this this evening! YUM!! I know you said you used the lemon juice in the bottle, but I thought since I was at the store I'd pick up lemons and do it with real lemons!

We LOVED it!!
