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!

FAQ’s about making frozen lemonade

What size does this recipe yield?

This recipe will fill a one pint glass.

How many ingredients are in this frozen lemonade?

There are only four ingredients, lemon juice, ice, vanilla ice cream and fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Does this lemonade have a thick or runny consistency?

I would say that it’s on the thicker side. If you prefer it a little thinner, you can add a splash of whole milk to the blender.

Can I use a food processor if I don’t have a blender?

No, the food processor will not mix it well enough to create that super-light creamy texture. If you have no blender, you could make it as a lemon float.
