Blender Lemonade Is the Tastiest Summer Shortcut You Didn’t Know Existed


Mmmm…fresh-squeezed lemonade. But even when the result is the world’s most refreshing drink, hand-juicing lemons never seems worth it. This is why we were so excited to read about this faster path to homemade lemonade from PureWow. Your secret weapon: a blender.

Get this though, you only need ONE lemon.

You don’t need a dozen lemons like some other recipes. Just one is necessary, plus 2 cups of water, a few ice cubes and 2 Tbsp sugar.

Some elbow grease is required before popping the fruit in the blender, though.

  • Wash the rind well–because you’re going to blend the WHOLE lemon.

  • Quarter the fruit with a paring knife.

  • Ditch the seeds and the pith, aka the thick white part down the center.

Final step? Blend for a full minute until smooth, so it’s not too pulpy. Oh, one more thing: Banish your juicer to the corner of that out-of-reach cabinet.
