Beat the Heat: Strawberry Lemonade

I am not complaining since others have had a much more difficult weather weekend than I have. I still have to combat this heat though. After texting back and forth with a friend yesterday, we determined that the only defense against this heat (110 degree heat index this weekend in Florida) was some homemade lemonade. So refreshing and easy to make. I jumped right on that bandwagon! 

While I love lemonade, sometimes it doesn’t love me so I decided to sweeten it up with some seasonally sweet strawberries. Thirty minutes later…we have Strawberry Lemonade! Pick up some strawberries and lemons today…you won’t regret it.

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

1 Pint Strawberries

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Fresh squeezed lemon juice, about 4-6 lemons

1 1/4 Cups Cold water


  1. In medium saucepan, bring lemon juice and sugar to a boil. Allow to boil 2 minutes. Sugar should be fully dissolved. Remove to cool.
  2. Puree strawberries with a splash of water in blender until fully blended.
  3. Add puree to pitcher. Add lemon juice mixture. Stir well. Pour over ice to serve.
