This Frosted Lemonade is the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day. It's cold, sweet and refreshing! This is a Chick Fil A copycat recipe, made with fresh-squeezed lemonade and vanilla ice cream, just like they make it at the restaurant!
Who else here loves Chick-Fil-A? Everything there is SO good! After I tasted their Frosted Lemonade I immediately added it to my list of recipes to figure out at home.
I came up with a really good copycat for the Chick Fil A Frosted Lemonade. It's vanilla ice cream mixed with their amazing fresh lemonade. Below I'm sharing the recipe, and how to make fresh-squeezed lemonade if you want to do it super authentically!
I've also got a few other copycat recipes you might enjoy, like the Peppermint Chocolate Chip Shake from Chick Fil A, Carribbean Passion Smoothie from Jamba Juice, or the Sonic Slush with Pop Rocks! For even more, check out all of our drink recipes here.

This Frosted Lemonade is so easy to make and with only a few ingredients! If you are looking for a quick dessert for a Sunday night or a sweet way to cool down after a day in the sun definitely give this frozen lemonade a try (after a little water first, of course!)
How to Make Lemonade
First you will need to squeeze the lemons. After doing it by hand for a long time, I finally bought this citrus squeezer, and I love it!
When you have 1 cup fresh lemon juice, mix that with 2.5 cups cold water and ½ cup sugar.
Chill the lemonade for at least an hour so it's cold before you make the frozen lemonade. If you have time, you could even stick it in the freezer so it gets extra cold and a little bit slushy.
How to Make Frosted Lemonade
Pour 1 cup cold lemonade and 2 cups ice cream into the blender, and blend until smooth.
Garnish with whipped cream and a lemon slice if you want to make it fancy.
A citrus squeezer is very helpful when making fresh lemonade.
You can make this using store-bought lemonade as well! I prefer Simply Lemonade.
