Recipe Notes

  • 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.
