Strawberry Lemonade

This is a great tasting strawberry lemonade! For this recipe, I used my own strawberries, which I picked, sweetened with sugar, and then froze them.



Strawberry Lemonade

1 (12 oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate
4 -1/2 cups water
1 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen sweetened strawberries, partially thawed

In a large pitcher mix together, the lemonade concentrate and the water.

Stir in the strawberries, then our the mixture into a blender, and purée until mixture is liquefied.

Strain the lemonade twice, to remove excess seeds from the strawberries.

Rinse the pitcher, so there aren't any seeds from the strawberries in it, then pour the strained strawberry lemonade back into the pitcher.

To serve, pour strawberry lemonade in glasses filled with ice.

Yields: 56 ounces of delicious strawberry flavored lemonade!

Kool-Aid Strawberry Lemonade

Here's a great tasting strawberry lemonade, which I've made using 2 packets of unsweetened Kool-Aid Lemonade, and with freshly picked strawberries. Who'd a thought you could make a yummy strawberry lemonade with Kool-Aid. Well you can, and it's quite refreshing!



Kool-Aid Strawberry Lemonade

2 (0.23 oz.) packets of Unsweetened Kool-Aid Lemonade
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 cups fresh, sliced, strawberries
3 cups of water, divided
ice cubes, or crushed ice

Mix together in a blender, the sugar, strawberries, and 2 cups of water.

Pour the strawberry mixture into a 2-quart pitcher, along with the remaining cup of water, and add the 2 packets of lemonade. Stir mixture with a spoon. (This lemonade has a consistency of being syrupy.)

Strain the lemonade twice, to remove excess seeds from the strawberries.

Rinse the pitcher, so there aren't any seeds from the strawberries in it, then pour the strained strawberry-lemonade back into the pitcher.

To serve, pour strawberry-lemonade in glasses filled with ice.

Yields: 56 ounces of delicious strawberry flavored lemonade!
