Whole Lemon Lemonade August 03 2017, 0 Comments

I love lemonade, but juicing a bunch of lemons always seems arduous. I recently came across the idea of 'blender lemonade' using the entire lemon, including the peel so I wanted to try it out. This lemonade looks slightly different than the traditional drink- it's opaque and foamy at the top, but it tastes pretty similar. Here's the recipe I made:

Prep time: 5 mins 
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 8oz mason jar


  • 2 lemons
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. Cut the lemons in half lengthwise, and then cut each half into quarters lengthwise.
  2. Cut the pith off each wedge and knock the seeds out.
  3. Place the lemon slices in a blender, along with the water, ice cubes and sugar. Blend until smooth. 
  4. Strain the mixture.
  5. Poor into jars.
  6. Optional: add vodka :)
