Strawberry Lemonade

Have a quart of freshly picked strawberries lying around in the summer time? Consider making a pitcher of fresh Strawberry Lemonade. You only need a few ingredients and you can keep it in a pitcher in your fridge to sip on throughout the week! This would also be a great drink to have when guests are coming over – you can serve it up on your balcony or patio like we did!

Strawberry Lemonade


  • 1 quart (4 cups) of fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1 lemon, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 cup water


  1. Dissolve the sugar in 1 cup of water by heating it up in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
  2. Put the strawberries and the above sugar-water mixture into a blender and blend until thoroughly combined. Pour into your pitcher.
  3. Then, blend the quartered lemon (entire lemon with skin) with the remaining water in the same blender. Strain this mixture through a fine sieve into your pitcher. Stir to combine. If you prefer this recipe to be more sweet, you can add another 1/4 cup of sugar. If you prefer it more sour, add another lemon.
  4. Stir to combine and serve over ice!
