DIY Frozen Lemonade – Three Ways

Frozen Lemonade 2

When you hit up a street fair or amusement park, what food stand do you hit up first? For me, it’s always the frozen lemonade stand. Followed by the dough-boy cart, and then maybe a slice of pizza, I make sure to grab a few pieces of taffy…etc, etc. But now, I can skip the long lines and overpriced admission tickets and make my own frozen lemonade at home. There’s nothing better than sitting on my back deck with a frozen lemonade on a warm summer night, watching the sun go down while the dog chases fireflies around the yard. That my friends, is the epitome of a perfect summer night.

There are three different way to go about making frozen lemonade. I found the best results were when using an ice cream maker, but if you don’t have one, you can simply use a blender or just a baking dish in the freezer. Use your favorite lemonade recipe or store-bought brand. You don’t have to limit yourself to just lemonade – this process would work well for frozen Cokes, ice teas, and Kool-Aid! I see lots of frozen drinks in my future this summer!

DIY Frozen Lemonade – Three Ways

Ingredients

  • Lemonade - either homemade or store-bought

Directions

  1. To make with an ice cream maker: Pour the lemonade into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker. Process for about 10-15 minutes until the lemonade becomes slushy.
  2. To make with a blender: Blend the lemonade with about 2 cups of ice until smooth. (Use the "ice crush" mode if you have one)
  3. To make in the freezer: Pour the lemonade into a glass pan, and freeze until solid. Scrape the frozen lemonade with a spoon until slushy. Add additional lemonade if needed.
