Fresh Raspberry Lemonade with only four ingredients. Make it for the kids this summer!
With summer in full swing, we’re excited for an awesome road trip to Colorado, but that’s not all. With summer comes a whole list of fun things to do. Beach days, s’mores, camping, and roadside lemonade stands are just a few of the activities we always like to tackle year after year.
Especially the lemonade stand. Every year the kids hustle their stuff down to the end of the street to catch the main traffic and sit patiently to see how many customers stop by. The results have been great over the years, but the mess left in the kitchen keeps growing and growing.
Usually, we’ll hand juice a giant bag of lemons and make our sweet lemonade base from those. This year’s going to be way easier though thanks to my Vitamix Aer Disc Container.
Other ideas for fresh fruit lemonade
The Aer Disc Container is an additional plastic pitcher that sits right on top of your existing Vitamix blender. The Aer Disc has been created to make drinks and liquids frothy and aerated because of its special disc, so raspberry lemonade was a lightbulb moment for me when I was trying to think of what to make.
Lemonade is pretty easy to make, to begin with, we all know that. But making easy lemonade with zero mess is the deal sealer for me. No juicing, peeling or hand squeezing involved
I used fresh raspberries for my lemonade but strawberries would work just as well, I’m also dying to try a blackberry or blueberry version. Seriously, there are no limits to making fruit-based lemonade guys. Make a giant pitcher of this lemonade for your summer backyard parties, sit back and let the awesome compliments roll in!
