This frozen mint lemonade recipe is super refreshing and easy to make!



  1. In a blender, combine the lemon juice, water, mint and sugar. Blend until the sugar has completely dissolved into the liquid.
  2. Add the ice. Blend on low speed to break up the ice, then increase the speed and blend until you’ve reached a uniformly slushy texture. (If the mixture is too thick to blend, let it rest for 5 minutes, stir by hand, and try again.) Pour into glasses and place a sprig of mint in each. Serve immediately.


Recipe inspired by Cafe Clock in Fez, Morocco.

*Sweetener notes: You can use honey as the sweetener if you’d like. It will add a prominent honey flavor. I also tried maple syrup, but I didn’t love how it tasted. I prefer sugar since it’s more neutral and tastes like the drink that I enjoyed in Morocco.

Change it up: I imagine that this drink would also taste amazing with lime instead of lemon. You could omit the mint for a basic frozen lemonade. And, if you want to add a splash or two of vodka, gin or bourbon to your drink, I can vouch that it’s a good idea.
