To make strawberry lemonade, start by putting 1/2 cup (120 ml) of water from the total amount into a saucepan. Place it on the stove and add sugar. The amount of sugar can vary depending on your taste or needs; I used 1/4 cup (50 g). Dissolve the sugar well and let it boil for about 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool.

Squeeze the lemons; wash the strawberries and cut them into pieces. In a blender, blend the strawberries with the lemon juice and add the now cooled sugar-water syrup.

Blend for about a minute, until you get a liquid, homogeneous, and somewhat thick mixture.

Tips and variations

If you are on a diet, you can make strawberry lemonade without sugar or substitute it with a sweetener: in both cases, you can skip the first step of boiling water and/or sweetener, and add them directly in the blender.
If you prefer a fizzy drink, you can replace the water with sparkling water.
For an even fresher aroma, add a sprig of fresh mint to each glass.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What can I use instead of sugar?

You can sweeten strawberry lemonade with honey, maple syrup, agave syrup, or a sweetener like stevia or erythritol. In all these cases, there is no need to prepare the syrup; you can blend everything together with the strawberries and lemon juice.
