4-Ingredient Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate Recipe

Love how easy it is to make this homemade strawberry lemonade recipe. You only need 4 ingredients – strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, and water. And you can even make a bunch of the strawberry lemonade concentrate in advance and freeze it for later! Then just thaw and add water!

One pound of fresh whole strawberries will equal about 2 cups of hulled and pureed strawberries. This is my favorite little tool for hulling strawberries! Easy, quick, and little waste. The Chef’n StemGem huller is the best one I’ve tried.

Note: I sometimes use erythritol sweetener in place of the sugar because it measures like sugar and is zero net carbs. The ones I have used with success so far are Swerve Sweetener and Lakanto Monkfruit Sugar Substitute.

Making the Strawberry Lemonade

First, wash and hull the strawberries, then throw them in the blender and blend until pureed to your desired texture, chunky or smooth.

When you’re loading the blender up with your strawberry lemonade ingredients, put the lemon juice, sugar, and ONLY 1 cup of ice water in your blender, then add the 2 cups of whole strawberries.

I prefer fresh lemon juice for the fresh lemon flavor. It usually takes about 3 ½ to 4 lemons to get 1 cup of lemon juice, depending on the size of the lemons. My favorite lemon juicer is the Chef’n FreshForce Citrus Juicer. I’ve had it for a few years and it works well!

Finishing Your Easy Strawberry Lemonade

Once you’ve blended your strawberry lemonade concentrate, put it in a pitcher and then add the remaining 4 cups of chilled water or transfer it to a freezer bag to freeze for later.

If you have any leftover strawberries from making this thirst-quenching beverage, you can have them on the side for even more refreshment. Enjoy!
