When life gives you overripe lemons. . . . . . .even when it's Winter, you make lemonade. Or in this case, frozen lemonade. I didn't feel like dealing with simple syrups and letting it cool and . . . . all of that!
So, I decided instead to make it a blender drink. It's super simple once you get your lemons squeezed.
Have you noticed I seem to be having a citrus themed couple of weeks? We'll all be on Vitamin C overload! Not possible. Citrus is so welcome in the Winter time when it's so cold and gray out. It just seems to brighten things up a bit. All of the cheery colors and citrus-y scents make life a little brighter.
Here's what we used:
4 cups of ice
1 cup of water
1 cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 5 lemons)
3/4 cup powdered sugar
We put everything in a blender and blended until it was slushy consistency. If it's too thick for you, add a little more water. It looks like a lot of sugar, but it's just because it's powdered sugar. This was definitely sweet and tangy. If you like things a little less sweet, just add less sugar. The kids, of course, loved it!
Do you ever make homemade lemonade?
