Frosted lemonade ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients: lemons, sugar and vanilla ice cream.

Fresh squeezed lemons for delicious frosted lemonade

Fresh squeezed lemons will make this extra delicious, but you can also use bottled lemon juice.
The squeezing is worth it, though!

Frosted lemonade starts with delicious lemonade.

In a pitcher, combine lemon juice, sugar, and water. Mix well until sugar is completely dissolved. Then chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Warning: You should let the kids know this lemonade is not for drinking right now. If you don’t, it could be gone when you need it to make the Frosted Lemonade. (I speak from experience.)

When you’re ready to serve the Frosted Lemonade, add 1 cup lemonade and 2 cups vanilla ice cream into a blender. Blend and serve immediately. Garnish with a lemon slice if desired.
