  • ½ cup lemon juice about 4 lemons, freshly squeezed
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest
  • cup honey agave nectar, or stevia*
  • 3 ½ - 4 cups ice
  • ½ cup water


  • Zest two of the lemons before juicing to get 1 tablespoon of lemon zest.
  • Add lemon juice, zest, honey, 3 1/2 cups of ice, and 1/2 cup of water to a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix.
  • Blend ingredients on medium for 1-2 minutes, or until completely smooth.
  • Add more ice if you would like it thicker or additional water if you would like it smoother.
  • Serve frozen lemonade in a mason jar with a straw and a lemon slice. Enjoy!



  • Use 1-2 teaspoons of stevia liquid extract in place of the honey for a low-carb frozen lemonade with 3 carbs/serving and only 8 calories.
  • Substitute agave nectar or pure maple syrup for the honey if you are vegan.

Meal Prep and Storage

  • How to prep ahead of time: You can easily make a batch or double batch of this ahead of time for a pool party or backyard BBQ. Prepare the frozen lemonade and place it in a freezer safe plastic container.
  • How to store: This drink is best enjoyed immediately or frozen for a later use.
  • How to freeze: Keep frozen lemonade in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 to 3 months. When ready to serve, pull it out 2 hours in advance. Let some of it melt before you add it back to the blender you used previously. Blend until smooth and to your desired consistency.
