Delicious Homemade Strawberry Lemonade

Recently, I was at my local farmers market.  The fruits and veggys looked amazing!  On this trip I was able to get a bunch of overripe strawberries at deep discount.  The only problem...what to do with so many ripe strawberries.  I know they will spoil before we could possibly eat all of them.  So, the first thing I did was wash and freeze most of them until I could figure out what I wanted to make with these. 

So I thought about it and one of the first things I thought of was a refreshing lemonade drink.  This is the first recipe I decided to try, a strawberry lemonade I found on via  Not only is it a great alternative to other sugary recipes, the kids can help with this too!

Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

Strawberry Lemonade (Serves 4)

Homemade Strawberry Lemonade? Naturally sweet, frothy and refreshing!

  • 1 Cup Chopped Fresh Strawberries, stemmed & washed
  • 1/2 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Agave or Honey or sugar
  • 2 Cups Water
  • Ice for Serving

  1. Puree strawberries and honey (or agave) in a blender or food processor until smooth and transfer to a pitcher.
  2. Pour the strawberry mixture, water and lemon juice in a pitcher and stir to combine.
  3. Chill and serve over ice.

I strained the lemonade after everything was mixed together since I don't like pulp in my drinks.  You can also alter the amount of sugar depending on the sweetness of the strawberries.
