When it’s stinking hot outside nothing sounds better than a tall glass of lemonade. I’ve always been a huge fan of the strawberry lemonade from Applebee’s and I think I’ve finally made a homemade version that I love just as much!

Start from scratch with your own homemade lemonade or use premixed or Countrytime, which ever is your favorite. I like to make homemade but I don’t always have lemons on hand.

Fresh or frozen strawberries will work for this recipe. If you are using frozen strawberries, thaw slightly and if they are sweetened, just skip the sugar.

Store refrigerated up to 1 day. Mixture can be frozen up to 3 months in a zip top freezer bag. Thaw in refrigerator and stir before serving. 

Pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for 12 hours for a frozen treat.
