Copycat Recipe for Chick-Fil-A Frosted Lemonade
While I appreciate a trip to the local fast foodie joint as much as the next tired mom (hey, there’s a playground AND I don’t have to fight with the kids to eat) – it’s not really something I should be doing on a regular basis (you’re welcome, budget).
But I’m nothing if not resourceful, so naturally I figured out how to make this sweet treat at home.It was really hard. I slaved to get this recipe to you. Seriously. So many trial runs. And I had to taste test all of them. Tragic for my waistline, but someone had to do it. I’m basically a martyr.
Okay, okay, the recipe is super simple. I drank them because I wanted to. YUM.

Optional garnish – Want to make it look fancy? Try some lemon wedges, yellow sprinkles, or whipped cream on top!

- Stick blender – Possibly the most used gadget in my entire kitchen. The key to making a hand blender useful versus a giant pain in the butt is to rinse it immediately after using. That way you’re never trying to get crusty dried goop out from under the blades.
- Ninja blender – We. Love. This. Blender. It blends all the things! Beautifully! No scraping the sides like I did in my old blender. And for a super reasonable price. My favorite thing to blend is Strawberry Lime Slushes!
- Double wall insulated wine glasses – Okay, this one’s not really a gadget so much as something I find really useful in a hot kitchen. I can pour my cold wine or beer into one of these cute glasses and forget I did for hours. When I finally wander back, it’s still cold and ready for me. I’ve even sat it next to my flaming hot grill while I make burgers, and it doesn’t turn into warm beer soup!
