How to Make McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

This McDonald’s slushie might be one of your favorite drinks from their menu. It’s also one of the most popular refreshing drinks there is. Kids love this drink and adults enjoy it too! It’s your perfect thirst-quencher this hot summer season. 

In order to make McDonald’s frozen strawberry lemonade, we’re aiming to create a slushie-like blend of lemonade and ice. And of course, its signature look should include that iconic sink of red strawberry at the bottom which is achieved by a strawberry topping. To upgrade this slushie, you can also garnish it with some fresh strawberries on top!

Strawberries and lemon create a fruity, sweet, and tangy flavor. If you don’t have any strawberry topping or fresh strawberries though, you can simply substitute it with raspberries like what we did in our Fresh Lemonade with Raspberry Ice Cubes Recipe. 

You can make this drink easily if you use a blender. But in the case that you don’t have one at home, check out our CAQs section down below to learn how to make this drink without one.

If you love this frozen strawberry lemonade, you should also try making your very own homemade McFlurry. Then pair your favorite slushie with a copycat chicken burger, and enjoy your homemade fast food feast!

Don’t worry, we got this! You will need a resealable plastic bag. Mix the ingredients in a glass except for the ice. Pour the mix into a resealable plastic bag.
