Summer is quickly coming to a close but I could still sip on this strawberry lemonade smoothie all year long. And with frozen strawberries, you can really have this throughout the entire year.

MY OTHER RECIPES


Now what I really love about this recipe is the use of fresh lemonade. You can certainly use store-bought or even lemonade frozen concentrate if you’re short on time but I found these options to be overly sweet – so sweet, that it was just overwhelming at one point.

So homemade lemonade will really set this recipe apart. That and the vanilla yogurt to balance out that tartness in all of its creamy glory.

You can also use a mixture of different berries if you’d like. I love to throw in a few raspberries to get that extra blooming red color. Plus, a hint of raspberry goodness never killed anyone.
