Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
The McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is a refreshing drink that is perfect for summer or anytime you want to cool off. Made with prepared lemonade or fresh homemade lemonade, you won’t be able to get enough of this drink.
One of the drinks that remind me of summer is lemonade and I love lemonade. Lemonade is so thirst-quenching and is my perfect answer to a hot day. I assure you, living in Texas, we have plenty of hot days.
McDonald’s created a wonderful frozen strawberry lemonade drink that they prepare when you order it. And guess what? You can easily make this delicious drink at home too.
Here’s a list of what you need:
- Strawberry ice cream topping
You can start with fresh lemonade if desired. McDonald’s does not make fresh lemonade, but you can if you prefer it. I recommend using Country Time lemonade drink mix to make this frozen lemonade.

I use daiquiri mix and real strawberries. It turned out perfect
I didn’t see this on the menu recently, I loved this recipe.
If you want a really easy cold strawberry lemonade just throw your lemonade into a blender and add strawberry sorbet to it rather than ice.
You can also mix it together and freeze in plastic containers to use as the “ice” for a punch.
Sounds like a great idea.
That’s NOT REAL Lemonade! Shame on you McDonalds serving that crap!!! The ONLY lemonade I’ll drink is the REAL PURE Lemonade I make!!

Thank you for posting this recipe, I’m addicted to these things! I have a couple of questions: what type of strawberry ice cream topping do you use? Perhaps it’s just my crappy blender, but I find that the consistency is not the same as when I buy it from McDonalds. (Mine is more foamy?) Do you have any tips on how to make the drink look more accurate (perhaps a setting on the blender)?
I use a vitamix on high power and on the 10 setting for a couple of seconds. I don’t have a standard blender any more. The strawberry topping I used was Mrs. Richardson, I believe McDonald’s has their especially made for them.
Just amazing! Fresh squeezed lemonade works well too if you have the time to make your own lemonade.
I am sure this would be real good with fresh lemonade as well.
Absolutely Refreshing! Must mention that the Red shade looks an even more captivating look to the beverage. Cheers !
This was really tasty. I used frozen strawberries instead of the strawberry topping,they were chunky, but it tasted good!
Dangit woman! You are a genius! I love these! Thanks for sharing!
