F is for Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

“F” is for Frozen Strawberry Lemonade! Check out this frozen fun fruit inspired recipe that is a must this Memorial Day. “F” is also for “Fan” of Gordon Ramsay and I’m excited to see his live show @TheFWordFOX and take away some fantastic cooking tips. The F Word premieres Wednesday May 31st, at 9/8c on FOX. #ad

Frozen Strawberry Lemonade (Ingredients for every 2 glasses served.)

For the strawberry layer:

1 to 1 1/2 cup frozen strawberries ¼ cup simple syrup * ½ cup cold water ½ cup ice
For the Lemonade:
2 lemons, juiced (discard seeds but keep the pulp) ¼ cup simple syrup 1 cup ice


In a blender combine the strawberries, ¼ cup simple syrup, ½ cup cold water and ½ cup ice. Blend until smooth. The mixture will be thick enough to spoon into 2 glasses. Rinse the blender carafe and add the lemon juice, lemon pulp, ¼ cup simple syrup and 1 cup ice. Blend until smooth and pour over the strawberry mixture in the glass.
Garnish with lemon slices or strawberries if desired.

The kids love to add a splash of their favorite lemon lime soda for the fizz factor!

For quick non layered version add all ingredients to blender.
Serve immediately
* Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts water and sugar. I used 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it starts to boil and all the sugar is dissolved. Cool and refrigerate in a mason jar until needed.
