Homemade Frozen Lemonade

I wasn’t planning on sharing another drink this week, but I couldn’t help myself.  Last week Wes and I visited the Target cafe while shopping to get his usual mango smoothie. Unfortunately it is no longer there.  Minute Maid has replaced Jamba Juice so Wes chose a frozen lemonade instead. It was pretty good but very tart and turned to just ice faster than we would have liked. We decided we should make our own frozen lemonade at home. Since I had almost an entire bag of fresh lemons to use up anyway, the timing was perfect. This Homemade Frozen Lemonade turned out amazing!

We added some lemon zest to our frozen lemonade but this is optional. I zested it pretty small and the blender broke it down even more. But there are a little bits of zest in there. It adds some color, but like pulp in orange juice, may not be for everyone.

  • 3 cups water (divided)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 5 to 6 lemons)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest (optional)
  • 5 cups ice
  • 1 lemon, sliced (garnish)
  • maraschino cherries (garnish)

  1. Make simple syrup by heating 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  2. Cook until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool completely.
  3. Blend 2 cups water, simple syrup, lemon juice, lemon zest (if desired) and ice in quality blender.
  4. Garnish with lemon slices and a cherry, if desired.
  5. Serve immediately.
