Strawberry lemonade is a delicious drink that’s perfect for summer. With this sweet and sour drink, you can kick your feet up and enjoy the warm weather!
Homemade Strawberry Lemonade with fresh strawberries
This strawberry lemonade recipe uses fresh whole strawberries (just like fancy restaurants!) but you don’t have to go anywhere to get this drink.
But what makes it even better is that there are endless refills (well, kind of). Sounds pretty nice, right? Despite how fancy this drink may sound, it’s actually incredibly easy to make.
I do recommend using a blender or food processer. Something/anything with blending abilities to get the strawberries nice and smooth. As long as you have one of those the job is a lot easier.
Of course, you could try to mash the strawberries yourself but who wants all of that extra work? Then again, having some chunks of strawberries in the lemonade could be fun too, so reserve some for your glass if this is something you want too.
I love this strawberry lemonade recipe so much. It’s probably one of my favorite things about spring/summer when strawberries are fresh on the vine and finally on sale in stores.
Using fresh strawberries is a great way to keep this drink feeling nice and fresh, but frozen berries could be used too. Although, you might want to let them thaw a little before blending (just a friendly tip). 😉
Can this Strawberry Lemonade Recipe be made with a different berry?
Absolutely. This lemonade recipe would be great with any of your favorite berries including raspberries, blackberries, or even blueberries. For a fun twist, you can even do a nice mix of berries!
With summer lasting for months, you have plenty of time to mix and match your favorite fruits to create unique lemonades.

Is Pink Lemonade the same as Strawberry Lemonade?
Fun fact traditional pink lemonade is actually regular lemonade with food coloring. Sometimes you get added flavorings for a red berry like cherry, strawberry or raspberry but not always.
This strawberry lemonade recipe uses real fresh strawberries to achieve the flavor and color that we want. Sounds a lot healthier, doesn’t it?
