Homemade Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

(originally made 7/2011)

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 scratch.

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 2c of frozen berries, 2T water, half a lemon's worth of juice and 2T sugar.    Ran it through the Blendtec until it was smooth.    

Dolloped 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.
