Welcome to how to make strawberry lemonade. A genius quick blend recipe in any blender and perfect for getting you through these hot summer months. If you like a refreshing summer drink then you’ll love learning how to make strawberry lemonade at home.
One of my biggest addictions as a child was the fizzy drinks. I loved lemonade, orangeade, cherryade, limeade and I could go on but you will probably get sick of reading the word ade.
I also doubt before the age of 16 that I had drank any water without complaining at the thought of drinking water.
I even remember being on a school trip when I was 10 and being disgusted by the fact that they were serving us all water with our meals.
I mean I don’t drink water and I hate water.
Well that was me back then anyway as a grumpy 10 year old!
Since then I have fallen in love with water and easily drink 3 litres of it a day, if not more.
I remember we used to always have a lot of orange squash in the house. It was the go to drink. It had no added sugar so it was considered to be okay, even though it was not great for you. But at the time nobody really told you any different.
But there was a plan B. Whenever we ate out I would have a can of Diet Coke and it was so refreshing and nice. Or if I went to the corner shop for some sweets with money from my Grandma I would always get a fizzy drink at the same time.
But there was one drink that always got my attention above all others and that was lemonade. I just loved my lemonade and could guzzle it if given the chance. The one that was in fashion during the 90’s was the pink lemonade and it just tasted so good and made me feel like I had something amazing while my parents drank their wine over dinner.
When we would head off on our yearly holiday I would stock up on the pink lemonade to take with me. But nowadays it costs a small fortune, has so many chemicals in it that I would never let my kids near it.
Well my option for them was to teach them how to make strawberry lemonade instead. It is full of additives, is made quickly in our blender and is so refreshing during these hot summer months.
It is like give it to me now! Or else!!!!
So get in the kitchen with your kids and make a delicious homemade strawberry lemonade in the blender and fill up your fridge with it. Your kids will think that you are amazing and might actually forget that a) it is good for them and b) that water is not that bad after all.

How To Make Strawberry Lemonade
- Remove the cores from the strawberries and add them to your blender. Add in the sugar along with 300ml of cold water.
- Blend until coarse.
- Add the lemon juice, give it another whizz and then serve with ice cubes.
I find that if the strawberries are not very sweet that you need to add a tablespoon of honey to it too.
If you want a more citrus flavour then double the lemon and add a lime.
This keeps really well in a big jug in the fridge for a refreshing drink throughout the summer.
