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 lemonade drink that they prepare when you order it. And guess what? You can easily make this frozen lemonade at home too.

Ingredients

Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Powdered lemonade drink mix or your favorite lemonade.
  • Ice Cubes
  • 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.

    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!!

    Hello!

    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!
