Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

    I just love a cold strawberry lemonade on a hot summer day, but what I love even more is a homemade, slushy, frozen strawberry lemonade. I can control how much sugar is added, which is great! You can taste the lemonade and add more sugar to your taste to before blending it with the frozen strawberries. This drink is a fun beverage to serve at summer parties because they look so fancy when you top them with a fresh lemon slice and strawberry. You have to drink them fast on a hot day, or they will melt!! So, rock your day with Frozen Strawberry Lemonade 🍹
