Homemade Lemonade Concentrate for the Freezer

Servings: 6 cups
Author: Brenda Thompson


  • 2 cups water
  • 3-4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest


  • In a large saucepan, add the water and sugar and whisk together to blend. Bring to a boil and cook until all the sugar is dissolve. Stir regularly so it does not burn.
  • Remove pan from heat and let it cool slightly.
  • Add lemon juice and lemon zest to the sugar syrup and stir to blend. Allow it to cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, prepare a muffin tin. I like to use silicone cups placed on a baking sheet so that they are easy to pop out when frozen. If you don’t have silicone muffin cups, you can use a regular tin. You will need to run it under warm water to pop them out more easily.
  • Pour Homemade Lemonade Concentrate in prepared muffin cups. Place pan on flat shelf in freezer. Freeze until solid (at least 2 hours). When frozen, pop out concentrate and store in a labeled ziptop bag.
  • To prepare Homemade Lemonade from concentrate:
  • By the glass: add ¼ cup concentrate to 8-10 ounces of cold plain water
  • By the pitcher: add 1 cup concentrate to 32 ounces (4 cups) of cold plain water
  • Stir to blend.
