    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.

    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.

    This was really tasty. I used frozen strawberries instead of the strawberry topping,they were chunky, but it tasted good!
