Frosted Lemonade

Thank you, Chick-fil-A for introducing me to this amazing drink. I ordered it by accident yesterday, (just wanted a cold lemonade) and have been full-on obsessed with it from the moment that refreshing lemon shake hit my lips.

How to Make Frosted Lemonade

After trying this drink I immediately hit the internet and searched for how to make it. The recipes varied from homemade to semi-homemade to the ingredients you see above. I wanted to replicate the version I had at Chick-fil-A as closely as possible so settled on this version, which just happens to be the easiest.

Pouring Frozen Lemonade

Mix them together in a blender and then pour into individual glasses. This recipe is 4 cups of total frosted lemonade, so will serve 4 people.

How Does a Frosted Lemonade Taste?

Refreshing is the first word that comes to mind. The next is sweet. I was so pleasantly surprised to taste a little of the tanginess of lemonade making its way into this drink. I thought that the vanilla ice cream might overtake that citrus blast, but it doesn’t.

Can You Make From-Scratch Frosted Lemonade? (2 ingredient recipe at the bottom of the page)

Yes, of course! The difference is in how sweet it will be. If you have made my Homemade Lemonade, you know that I like it on the sweeter side. When I made homemade lemonade and added the vanilla ice cream it was good, but a little sweet as you are not using a concentrate. Try it with No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream!

What Type of Lemonade Works Best?

I opted for the Old Orchard Lemonade for a couple of reasons. We like the flavor and you can microwave the frozen lemonade, which means you can enjoy this drink when you get the craving for it and don’t have to wait an hour for it to defrost.

I put it in the microwave for 30 seconds to get it warm enough to remove from the container and then added that to the blender. When I was buying the lemonade concentrate I noticed they have a large variety of flavors like Strawberry Lemonade and Pink Lemonade. I have a feeling that all of the variations will taste amazing in this easy drink!

Vodka Frosted Lemonade

Hello, friend. If you happen to like a little cocktail every now and then, be sure to try this with vodka. Even though the recipe technically serves four, I opted to only add 2 shots of vodka when testing this. I don’t necessarily want to taste the vodka, but do want to know it’s there.

If you are adding some liquor, I recommend starting with less, taste testing and then adding more to your tastes.

  1. Yes…. as children we called this ice cream floats. The Ice cream van Would call at dinner time outside school. And make them to order. Cream soda was my favourite. Or lime soda. You can even boost flavour of A berry soda If mixed With Strawberry ice cream

  2. Thank you for your receipt for this wonderful cooler that both little ones and big ones too, just love.

  3. We called this a float back when I was a kid in England. Any fizzy drink, plus a scoop of vanilla ice cream was heaven! Lemonade with Cornish vanilla was like cream soda, it was so creamy, and Coca Cola with vanilla was amazing! If we’d had doctor pepper back then I’m pretty sure I’d have become addicted. It got even better when we upped the stakes with strawberry or chocolate ice cream. It never occurs to me to make it now (calories), but maybe now and then it would be good!

  4. JACKIE, YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN LEMONADE CONCENTRATE EASY. I SQUEEZE ENOUGH LEMONS TO MAKE 12 OZS. OF JUICE, THEN WHISK IN 1 AND A 1/2 CUPS SUGAR. I PUT THAT INTO A QUART SIZE FREEZER ZIPLOCK BAGGIE AND FREEZE IT OVERNIGHT. THE SUGAR WILL PREVENT IT FROM FREEZING ROCK HARD, SO IT WILL BE EASY TO SPOON OUT.
