Try this simple homemade strawberry lemonade recipe for something a little fun, whether it’s just with lunch or for a special celebration.
I made this the other day just for fun and it was a hit, so I thought I’d share. It’s kind of amazing how simple things are bringing so much joy these days, like having special homemade strawberry lemonade to drink with lunch instead of the usual water. Or watching birds fight over a pile of birdseed. This is the story of our lives lately. As much as I miss normal life, I do appreciate the challenges that we’re facing because it definitely brings out a new level of creativity. Sometimes, at least.
Ingredients Needed for the Strawberry Lemonade
- Lemon juice
- Frozen strawberries
You could use fresh-squeezed lemon juice and fresh strawberries, but this was definitely an easy pantry ingredient recipe for me. I used bottled lemon juice out of the fridge and the last of the frozen strawberries that were taking up room in the freezer.
Making the Strawberry Lemonade
Just toss everything into a blender and blend it up really well, for about a minute. Then pour it into a glass juice jug so you can enjoy the pretty color. That’s really it. I would normally say that this would be a great, quick recipe to know about for barbecue season or for any outdoor gatherings you have coming up that will have kids, but that’s probably not happening any time soon. I am going to keep the freezer stocked with strawberries though for later in the season when the weather warms up because I think this will be the perfect way to lure the kids out to do a little porch sitting with us.
