I finally broke my McD's iced Caramel coffee addiction when I got a
Keurig and some awesome Copco cups and learned to make it at home.
Then they introduced the Frozen Strawberry Lemonade! After going 3x
last week I decided I have got to learn to make it myself. There are
a bunch of clones floating around, most using Smuckers Strawberry
Syrup, but since I have lots of frozen berries I wanted to make it from
I started by making 32oz of Country Time lemonade in a lidded
container that I could shake. Popped it in the freezer and gave it a
shake every once in a while til it got slushy. Next time I'd use my
KA ice cream maker attachment. For the strawberry puree, I took about

sugar. Ran it through the Blendtec until it was smooth.
a few tablespoons of the strawberry puree, then the slushy lemonade,
and repeated. This was good, refreshing, but next time I'll make a
lemonade from scratch, the Country Time is very sweet.
To make a grown up version, I would freeze Smirnoff Tuscan Lemonade until slushy and then add the puree to it.
