This fruity treat is like a cross between sorbet and lemonade.  Not only will this drink rehydrate and recharge you, but it’s full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients (thanks to the strawberries and blueberries!), is a decent source of fiber, and has no added sugar.  Basically, it’s the ultimate refreshment for a hot day.

On a hot day we all know a drink like this will melt fast.  To help keep it cool for a little longer, instead of using ice cubes I use a handful of frozen blueberries.  It gives additional nutrition plus little berry bursts of flavor…a total win-win in my book.

I promised to share this recipe with you a while ago…sorry it took me so long but hopefully you’ll agree it was worth the wait.  I thought this would be the perfect time now that summer is here!  :)

Sparkling Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Serves 2 to 3

2 cups whole strawberries, frozen

1 1/2 cups water

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 packets stevia or other sweetener (more or less to taste depending how sweet your fruit is)

Splash of sparkling water

A handful of frozen blueberries (for garnish)

Add the strawberries, water, lemon juice, and stevia into a blender and process until smooth.  Transfer to individual glasses and add a splash of sparkling water.  Top with frozen blueberries and serve.

  1. My mouth is watering just looking at it!

    1. My pleasure, sorry I couldn’t be more help though! :) Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

  2. What a fantastic idea! I must think of a variation of this for my cocktail party, which I am currently asking foodies to offer recipes for. What alcohol would you suggest in this if I was to change this to a cocktail?

    1. I bet this would be a lot of fun to turn into a cocktail! Unfortunately, hubby and I don’t drink alcohol, so I’m afraid I’m not any help as far as suggestions for alcohol go…sorry about that!

  7. Wow, my kids would love this frozen lemonade. What a fantastic way to get them eat more fruits too.

  8. Just what the doctor ordered. I love the health a delicious drink can bring. Now just maybe if it’s a party, I might spike with a little vodka. That might be good for my mental health. But I know few little boys that would slurp this right up.
