The best homemade strawberry lemonade

04.21.2015

The sweet folks at La Boulange sent me the recipe to make my own strawberry lemonade at home – it’s #lemontime at La Boulange this month.

The result had so much success, with the group of teens I had at the house that day, that I figured it was really worth sharing here. What I really like with his recipe is that it’s made with fresh ingredients, plus a secret one I would never have thought adding in a lemonade…

What you’ll need :

  • 1 cup of pure lemon juice
  • 1 cup of hot water
  • 1/4 cup of cane sugar
  • 3 cups of cold water
  • 4 tablespoons of strawberry jam [I used only 2 to reduce sugar intake, and it was enough for us]
  • 3 strawberries, sliced

Steps :

  • Combine the sugar and hot water in a pitcher and mix well until sugar is all dissolved.
  • Add lemon juice and the cold water.
  • Add the strawberry jam and whisk vigorously.
  • Add the sliced strawberries in the pitcher and place in the fridge for one hour or more before serving. Serve with ice and a slice of lemon.

Enjoy and cheers to you!
