A thick and creamy frozen lemonade with vanilla ice cream, this is the perfect treat to sip on in the summer heat!
Lemons are always a good ingredient to use in the summer months. There’s always an abundance of them or maybe your neighbor has a bunch you can have for free. You can make so many sweet and tasty things with them like my mini lemon and poppy seed scones or these simple lemon cake squares but this post is all about frozen lemonade. This recipe is very similar to the frozen lemonade you can find at a certain well known chicken sandwich restaurant, but you don’t have to wait in line!
