Chick-Fil-A Lemonade with just a few ingredients tastes JUST your favorite lemonade at a fraction of the cost! Frosted Lemonade directions too! Chick-Fil-A Lemonade is a favorite in our house. In fact, we love it so much we actually buy it by the gallon when we have friends over for bbq’s and parties. That was until we started making it ourselves.

The “recipe” for this Chick-Fil-A Lemonade may seem really simple, but honestly good lemonade should be! This is one of the few caloric drinks I let the kids enjoy (milk and all fruit/veggie/yogurt smoothies are the other two).

While it is super sweet and full of sugar, I love that it tastes like your grandmother hand squeezed the lemonade for you!

Want to use this Chick-Fil-A Lemonade to make Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade?

  • Use a ratio of 1 cup lemonade to 2 cups vanilla ice cream.
  • Whisk together or pulse in a blender for just a few seconds, you don’t want to thin out the drink with excessive blending.
  • Use the best quality vanilla ice cream you can, but avoid french vanilla ice cream, that vanilla flavor would be too overwhelming.

Tips for this Chick-Fil-A Lemonade:

  • If at ALL possible, use Sunskist lemons (lemon flavors can vary so much, this will ensure the right unique lemon flavor).
  • Make sure the sugar is fully dissolved into the lemon juice.
  • Letting the mixture sit helps the flavors develop more fully.
  • It tastes significantly better ice cold.
