This was one of our favorite drinks this summer---however, the first time I made it, I added all of the 1/3 cup of lemon juice, and it was just too tart! I modified it to a 1/4 of a cup and we like it better with that amount. I love the addition of strawberries to the traditional lemonade! Thanks for the post! I also increase the sugar slightly.

Really tart. When summer rolls around I'll give it another try adding some rum into the mix. Read More

I used Truvia sweetener instead of real sugar (from the Truvia website I was told to use 6 packets to get the sweetness of 1/4 cup of sugar). I did add a little more strawberries than what was called for and I cut back on the ice a bit. Very refreshing. This would make a wonderful base for a homemade strawberry margarita (using lime juice maybe instead of lemon juice?) or a strawberry daiquiri. Read More

This is a great recipe for lemon berry slushy--not too tart and not too sweet! I've made this a number of times now exactly following the recipe and it is a fantastic treat (good for parties including Superbowl parties which we plan to make it for). I've also altered the recipe just twice once adding some lime juice in place of half the lemon juice and once adding frozen berries (blueberry raspberry blackberry) instead of frozen strawberries.

I was looking for a quick easy slushy and this one fit the bill! I didn't have frozen berries so I used fresh ones and I juiced up a fresh lemon and got a little less than 1/3 of a cup. I kept the sugar the same though. Either way we loved it and I'll probably make this again - maybe with strawberries and blueberries. Read More

UPDATE JUNE 12 09 Today I give it 5! Slacked off on the sugar a bit and added more lemon and VOILA....I heard a LOUD "MMMMMM" out of my 4.5 year old!! LOL! I did not give it 5 because I TRULY like this stuff more on the tart side and have found the Strawberry Limeade on this site to be VERY difficult to beat. BUT with that being said I truly don't see anything wrong with this. It has NUMEROUS possibilities w/ customization! Add more lemon use less sugar vice versa and etc! I did the recipe to a T but mistakingly added a tad more strawberries (Fresh..didn't have frozen) than what it called for. Even just a little more altered the taste and the strawberry really overpowered it. SO..I had to juice another lemon (one lemon did yield JUST short of 1/3 cup as a PP mentioned). I ended up using ALL of that lemon juice as well. Perfect for us!:) I didn't think it was pucker-y tart..it was perfect the way it was! Lemon isn't SUPPOSED to be SWEET! I eye-balled the ice as we have an ice maker built into the freezer and don't use trays.....but using too much ice or too little ice could alter your the outcome as well....and you may have to adjust your ingredient amounts too! Totally would make this again! My 4.5 year old digs it..and if it makes HER happy it's gotta be good. Read More

This was a nice drink for a hot summer day. I agree with other reviewers that found it tart though. Next time I'll cut down on the lemon juice. I also used the berries frozen instead of thawing them therefore needing less ice. Read More
