If you love Chick Fil A's frosted lemonade treat, you will go crazy for this easy copycat recipe inspired by the original!


  • 1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 TBS white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream


  1. In a large glass, add the lemon juice, sugar, and cold water and whisk until the sugar has dissolved.  Chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  2. Add the lemon juice mixture and ice cream to a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately in chilled serving glasses.


Equipment Needed: a good blender or immersion blender (if using the latter, place ingredients in a deep pitcher).

I used Breyer's Extra-Creamy Vanilla ice cream to test this recipe.

One recipe uses exactly half of a 1.5 quart (48oz) container of ice cream.

If you used bottled lemon juice, make sure it's 100% with no other added or artificial ingredients for best flavor.

You can also use lemonade instead of the mixture of lemon juice, sugar, and water.  Choose a 100% all natural lemonade and use 1 1/4 cups of lemonade.

Only blend until the mixture is smooth to avoid too much melting.  I recommend chilling your serving glasses beforehand to keep things nice and frosty.
