Strawberry Lemonade

  • Author: April Anderson

  • Yield: 9 (8-oz) glasses 1x


Cold and refreshing strawberry lemonade made from scratch with fresh lemon juice, frozen strawberries, water, and sugar. This recipe is easy to make and easy to customize, too, with other frozen fruit like blueberries, raspberries, or peaches.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 7 cups water, divided 
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 5 to 6 large lemons)
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced frozen strawberries, thawed


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar with 3 cups of water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat until all of the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the stove and allow it to cool.
  2. Pour 4 cups of water, the sugar water, and lemon juice in a large pitcher. Add the strawberries and stir to combine. Serve over ice and enjoy.


To make the lemonade less sweet, add up to one to two cups of water.
