Frozen Blackberry Lemonade
Easy frozen blackberry lemonade is the perfect frozen treat to cool down with on a hot summer’s day, and only takes a few ingredients to make.
Blackberries are in abundance right now in Texas, and they are DIRT cheap at the grocery store. I’m talking $0.98 a pint! At that price, I don’t mind bringing home a few pints–or 5. My husband eats berries every day for breakfast along with yogurt and granola. At that rate, we go through berries pretty quickly, but this week I still managed to have some leftovers that needed to be used up. That’s where this recipe for frozen blackberry lemonade comes in!
This frozen blackberry lemonade recipe is the perfect blend of sweet and tart and is a sure way to beat the sweltering 105-degree heat we’ve been enduring for the last 3 weeks straight. Seriously, is anyone else dreaming of Fall? I mean it is August and before we know it, the leaves will start to turn and there will be a distinct chill in the air.
It’s not that I’m trying to rush away Summer, I would just kind of like Mother Nature to cool it a little–see what I did there?
To make this frozen blackberry lemonade all you need are a few lemons, blackberries, sugar, and ice. If you use frozen blackberries you won’t need as much ice, but it gives the frozen lemonade a frothier texture. Personally I like mine with fresh berries and ice to give it a slushie texture. And if you’re like me and it’s always happy hour somewhere, adding in a splash of vodka really takes the drink to a whole new level–of awesome.
Because if it’s going to be scorching hot for a few more weeks (or months in my case) then we might as well enjoy it the only way we can. 🙂
