Summer is here! Here’s our favorite Paleo Strawberry Lemonade recipe!
Growing up, I loved strawberry lemonade! I mean I truly LOVED it! I would beg my parents to take us out to eat at one particular chain restaurant because I was determined they had the best stuff out there.
My love of strawberry lemonade changed over time as I started eating more natural, whole foods. I realized so many places use syrups for flavoring. I just got used to it not being an option anymore.
Well, my husband is a huge lover of anything lemon! (Check out my blog post 8 Paleo Recipes Using Lemon for more lemon recipes, especially ones that work while you’re on the road traveling with food restrictions!)
So I thought it was time for a fresh Paleo strawberry lemonade recipe!

5-Ingredient in this Paleo Strawberry Lemonade Recipe
This strawberry lemonade recipe uses only five ingredients: water, honey, strawberries, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. It’s easy and tastes great!
No corn syrup or other artificial sweeteners, this recipe is sweetened with honey.
I chose honey for this recipe because I find honey goes really well with lemons. But you’re welcome to use maple syrup or any sweetener of your choice. I recommend Eisele’s Pure Honey because it has no additives and comes in a glass bottle, meaning it’s not stored in plastic (very comforting when you need to reheat the bottle because it has granulated over time!).
I also chose to put the honey in water and heat before adding it to the strawberries, lemon juice, and more water. You are welcome to omit this step if you’d rather stir the honey very well to mix it with the cold water. I will warn, however, that you may find it doesn’t liquefy easily and remains at the bottom of the mixer.
Please note, this blog is about traveling with food allergies. If you’re looking for recipes that use a small amount of leftover lemon juice because you’re traveling, this is probably not the best one for you. Unless you love freshly squeezed lemon juice and are ready to buy the bag of lemons at the grocery store! The zest can always be used in other recipes like the lemon cookie one in the above post!
But if you love lemons, this is the recipe for you! Enjoy!
Simple and Fresh Paleo Strawberry Lemonade Recipe
- 3 cups water
- 5 Tbsp honey
- 10 strawberries cut into fourths
- 3 cups water
- ¾ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice about 4 lemons
- Put 3 cups of water and all of the honey in a pot on medium heat for 10 minutes to turn the honey into sugar water. Stir occasionally. Let sit for 30 minutes to cool down. (This step is optional and can be omitted if you would rather stir the honey well later on to keep it from clumping.)
- Put the strawberries, the sugar water, the additional 3 cups of water, and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until mixed well.
- Place the lemonade in the fridge or freezer to chill.
- Serve cold and enjoy!
