This fresh strawberry lemonade recipe was inspired by a lemonade I enjoyed in Panama City Beach, Florida.

This fresh squeezed lemonade quenched my thirst like nothing else could.

Homemade Lemonade

When I make up a batch of fresh squeezed lemonade, I rarely add sugar. I use honey instead.

The honey mixes easily with water and gives lemonade the perfect amount of sweetness.

How To Make Strawberry Lemonade

I use an entire pound of fresh strawberries in this lemonade recipe.

Just trim the strawberries, cut them in half and toss them into a blender.

You will likely need to add a little liquid to the strawberries so they can move around a little in the blender. Usually 1/2 cup is the perfect amount.

Pour the strawberry purée through a fine mesh strainer. By forcing the purée through the tiny holes of the strainer, the seeds get left behind.

After you've got your strawberries strained, stir together the lemon juice, water, honey, and strawberry purée and pour the lemonade into a tall glass over ice.

This strawberry lemonade will keep well in the refrigerator for a few days.

    I’m excited to try this! I’ve only recently embraced honey as a substitute for sugar and love the new twist on old favorites. This will be perfect now that the weather is warming up.

    This is the recipe I’ve been looking for Joanie! So simple, but no one seems to use honey for lemonade and with fresh strawberries! Pinned!

    1. Thanks so much, Alisa. I love the taste of lemonade with the honey. I didn’t miss the sugar at all.

  7. I love strawberry everything. Your mouthwatering photos have me thinking of going to a u-pick strawberry farm nearby!
