This copycat Chick-Fil-A frosted lemonade recipe is creamy and sweet with the wonderful tang of lemon. A delicious frozen drink that turns lemonade into a fruit milkshake. Perfect for summer!
If you’ve ever been to Chick-Fil-A, you know about frosted lemonade. This frozen drink is a hand-spun combination of Chick-fil-A’s homemade lemonade and their famous soft-serve vanilla Icedream®. It’s like lemonade and a milkshake combined into one. Talk about refreshing!
Chick-Fil-A will come out with new frosted lemonade flavors throughout the different seasons, especially spring and summer. It’s fun to try new flavors, but you’ve got to love a classic!
Frosted lemonade is one of our family’s absolute favorite summer treats. I wanted to make a version we could enjoy at home anytime, so I’m sharing this recipe with you. After all, I almost always have a gallon of vanilla ice cream in my freezer during the hot summer months. (Which is also great for Root Beer Freezes!)
FROSTED LEMONADE RECIPE
All you need to make frosted lemonade is lemon juice, sugar, water, vanilla ice cream, and a blender.
Chilling the lemonade mixture beforehand will help dissolve the sugar into the water and help keep the shake thick. Using cold (ice) water and a blender to quickly dissolve the sugar works well too.
The lemonade mixture itself is small, but concentrated so you get a nice punch of tangy lemon to come through that creamy vanilla ice cream. And you don’t have to worry about any leftovers sitting in your fridge either.
This frosted lemonade recipe makes enough for two to three (8-12oz) servings. It’ll be hard to go back to a plain glass of lemonade after trying this lemon milkshake.
If you’re ready for a creamy, sweet, and tangy summer treat, this frosted lemonade recipe is for you!
