Have fun this summer and create your own frozen lemonade bar!  Gather up some friends and family, lay out a selection of fresh fruit and lemons, grab your blender and some ice and you’ve got a Frozen Lemonade Bar!

Create-Your-Own Frozen Lemonade Bar

Who doesn’t love lemonade, especially the homemade kind?  There’s nothing like a glass of cold lemonade on a hot summer day!  And why not take it up a notch and make it a frozen lemonade…like a slushie but without all the added chemicals and dyes!  You can make the most delicious frozen lemonades right at home with fresh ingredients!  Just look how vibrant the colours of the slushies are with just fresh fruit!

Breville Hemisphere Twist Review

Recently I was sent this Breville Hemisphere Twist Blender to review, and we’ve since put it to good use, let me tell you!  The kids have been making fresh fruit smoothies in the mornings, I’ve been making my favourite smoothies, and my husband has been using it to make his sports drinks.  This blender has power!  I love it because it makes our drinks so smooth, so fast and with little to no stirring.  And it has this awesome cleaning feature that you use after each time you use it, so the next person making their drink has a clean blender to work with.  Awesome!  It also came with a juicer attachment for the lid, and when I saw that, I knew I had to make frozen lemonade.  So I decided to put together a Create-Your-Own Frozen Lemonade Bar, complete with fresh lemons and lots of fresh berries.

Create-Your-Own Frozen Lemonade Bar

This is a fun way to serve up a frozen treat for family and friends.  Just line up some bowls with different kinds of berries and fruit and add them to the basic frozen lemonade recipe.  That way each person can make what ever kind of frozen lemonade they like, and everyone is happy!

Create Your Own Frozen Lemonade Bar

I mixed up a Strawberry Frozen Lemonade, an Original Frozen Lemonade, and a Blueberry Frozen Lemonade, and they were all SO delicious.  I’m a bit of a purist when it comes to lemonade so the original one was my favourite, but both the strawberry and blueberry versions were a close second.  Next time I’m going to make a Raspberry Frozen Lemonade…yum.  All this frozen lemonade talk is making you thirsty isn’t it?  😉



Make-Your-Own Frozen Lemonade Bar

  • Yield: 5 1x


Have fun this summer and create your own frozen lemonade bar!  Gather up some friends and family, lay out a selection of fresh fruit and lemons, grab your blender and some ice and you’ve got a Frozen Lemonade Bar!



Basic Frozen Lemonade Recipe:

  • 5 lemons (juiced)
  • 5 cups ice cubes
  • 1/23/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet or tart you want it)

Fruit Options (I use about 1 cup of fresh fruit):

  • fresh blueberries
  • fresh strawberries
  • fresh blackberries
  • fresh raspberries


  1. Juice your lemons, and add the juice to the blender.
  2. Add the ice cubes and sugar to the blender.
  3. Blend until nice and smooth.

Adding Fresh Fruit:

  1. If you’re adding fruit, you can add it to the blender at any time. I use roughly about 1 cup of fresh fruit. You can add less or more depending on your taste.

This is such a fun way to quench your thirst and get some reprieve from the heat of summer!  Enjoy!

    These look so refreshing! There is nothing like fresh lemonade and your idea of adding other fruits to make more flavors is wonderful.

    I have a question: Do you use 5 lemons for EACH drink?

      Hi Noreen! This recipe makes 5 cups total of frozen lemonade. So it works out to be almost 1 lemon per each drink.

    My kids simply love frozen lemonade. They would be in heaven if we could make it at home. We picked some fresh blackberries today so that would definitely have to go in the mix.
