Homemade Strawberry Lemonade Recipe

It’s summertime once again in our home.  During the summer I’m always looking for creative methods to hydrate and make a lot of use of my  Breville Juice Fountain duo juicer.   Creating homemade juice with natural fruits is one of my favorite pastimes.  I love the taste of strawberries and put them on everything from pancakes, crepes, oatmeal and cereal.   Most recently I started experimenting with strawberry recipes and created a recipe with fresh strawberries and organic lemons.

I used a Breville Juice Fountain duo to make the delicious beverage at home.  I’m in love with this Home Tech gadget!  If you do not have a juicer you can also use a blender to puree the fruit.  For this recipe I will use a blender.

 

Strawberry Lemonade | Agua Fresca de Fresa y Limon

Ingredients

1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1 pint fresh strawberries
1 cup fresh lemon juice (6 -8 lemons)
6 cups cold water
6 cups ice

Directions

In a saucepan over high heat, mix together water and sugar until sugar dissolves and it becomes a clear syrup. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Place the strawberry into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Place the lemons into a blender. Cover and puree until smooth.  Stir in 6 cups of cold water, the lemon juice and stir.  Add clear syrup. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving.

For lemonade with pulp do not strain lemons and strawberries after blending.  Add club soda to make fizzy lemonade.

Buen Provecho!

  1. ummmmm I love strawberries lemonade

  2. Wow! That sounds delicious! I plan on having a lemonade stand with my daughters soon, I think I may add your strawberry lemonade to the menu! 🙂

    • Your lemonade stand will be a huge hit with strawberry lemonade. I also have a Watermelon lemonade recipe which was a very popular recipe last year.

  3. We have a Breville too, but have not tried making lemonade. I think this might be on our to do list of juices to try.

  4. On hot summer days (like this one, hoo boy) nothing hits the spot like a glass of ice cold lemonade. I’d love to try this recipe for our Labor Day BBQ!

  5. Sounds great, and if you freeze it you can make great ice cubes for cocktails too! 🙂

  6. I love this just add a bit of Tequila… 🙂

  7. Que rico! and so easy to make.
