Living in Georgia, my husband and I know what heat is. I can’t believe how hot it is here! So what’s a better way to beat the heat than by drinking fresh strawberry lemonade?
The great thing about this recipe is it’s easy with few ingredients. All you need is lemons, strawberries, and sugar. Seriously, that’s all. Oh wait, and water. Think you can manage getting some water?
First things first, squeeze lemons. You will need between 5-8 lemons in order to get enough lemon juice for this recipe.
Use a strainer to put the 1 cup of lemon juice into the blender. This way you won’t get any seeds in your delicious lemonade.
Next, pour the sugar in the blender. Blend for about 30 seconds.
Pour the mixture into your pitcher. Then add the water and chill until you are ready to serve.
