Freshly Squeezed Homemade Frozen Lemonade

Cheers to the warm weather that is finally arriving in the northeast.  Summer is certainly here and after a crispy fall, the long winter months and a cool spring it is surely welcomed!  

I am not complaining about the hot summer days; not one bit!  I relish these high temps because this season is so short.  There are many things that I love about summer including a whole new list of recipes to enjoy. 

We LOVE blender recipe fun at the Fitz homestead.  In part, blending is always a quick way to spend a little time making a super easy recipe when we don’t have time to get into a more involved recipe; or don’t want to.  After all, even the quick and easy recipes allow us a little time to slow down, connect and chat.

Freshly squeezed homemade frozen lemonade is one of those ‘go to’ summer recipes.  It’s a delicious recipe to serve on any hot summer day and fantastic for entertaining!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of ice
  • 2 lemons, fresh
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup honey

Instructions

    1. Cut the lemons in half to create four halves. 
    2. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons. 
    3. Add the ice, water, extracts and honey together with the fresh lemon juice in a blender and blend. 
Making Fresh Lemon JuiceIf you have a citrus squeezer simple squeeze the lemon halves right into a blender pitcher because they catch the seeds.  If you do not have one then simply squeeze the lemons by hand.  However,  squeeze the juice into a liquid measuring cup so that you can extract the seeds from the juice before pouring the juice into the blender.
