Sprinkle in 1 tablespoon of sugar to balance out the tang, whisking it until it’s completely dissolved. Bask in the sweet aromatics that start to surface.
- Add the Strawberries:
Toss in 3 spoonfuls of frozen strawberries, and stir the mixture. These frozen delights chill the drink further while releasing their juicy essence.

Recipe Tips to Personalize Your Refreshment
- Tune the Tang: Adjust the lemonade powder to fit your palate. Experiment to find your perfect balance of tart and sweet for a custom-made refreshment.
- Sweetener Swap: Feel free to skip the sugar if you prefer and opt solely for honey, which lends a smoother, natural sweetness.
- Mind the Strawberries: If your frozen strawberries come with syrup, you might want to omit the additional sugar to prevent an overly sweet drink.
- Freshen Up: For an even more authentic and refreshing flavor, squeeze in fresh lemon juice — the ultimate game-changer for lemonade aficionados.
