Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you find this recipe to be too sweet you can add less sugar. Or if you want it a little sweeter, add in more sugar. 
  • Don’t be afraid to add a little lemon zest to the blender to make this drink even more lemony. 
  • Blend this drink for however long you would like. If you want it to be a little bit icier you will not want to blend it for as long. If you want a nice smooth texture, blend your frozen lemonade longer. 
  • You can swap out the sugar for honey if you prefer, but you will need to adjust the amount added to your frozen lemonade based on your preferences.

Can you make frozen lemonade ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this ahead of time. You will want to follow the recipe, but instead of serving you will add it to a freezer-safe container and freeze it.

Before serving, you will want to pull it out of the freezer about 1 hour early and let it begin to melt a bit. Once it melts a little, place it back in the blender and blend to mix back up. 

Can I add alcohol to frozen lemonade?

If you are serving this to adults, you can add a shot of Vodka to the blender to make this spiked frozen lemonade.
