How long does it take to make this strawberry lemonade?
This is probably the best part (aside from the taste!). This fresh lemonade only takes about 5 minutes to make!
The part that takes the longest is probably crushing the strawberries so they can be added to the lemonade. Using a Magic Bullet or Blender works well for blending the strawberries.
Can I squeeze all of the juice needed from lemons?
Well, you can. But I wouldn't recommend it. It would take quite a long time and using lemon juice from a bottle works just as well.
Fresh lemons do make their way into the strawberry lemonade, like in homemade lemonade. Half of a lemon will be squeezed into the mixture and the other half cut up for garnish in the pitcher.
This homemade lemonade tastes better when chilled and should be kept in the fridge when not being used.
Easy strawberry lemonade is a wonderful taste of summer. Pair this lemonade with BBQ favorites like grilled chicken or a delicious patriotic sugar cookie for the 4th of July.
