Frozen Lemonade

It's been in the high 90's and cold drinks are becoming a highly sought after treat--but going out for them adds up ($$$). We were out in the heat a lot yesterday and this drink saved the day!

Frozen Lemonade
2-3 C ice
1/3-1/2 can lemonade concentrate
1+ C water

Frozen Lemonade (Light)
2-3 C ice
2/3 can sugar free lemonade
2-3 T lemonade concentrate
1-2 T lemon juice (fresh squeezed)

Add the ingredients to your blender and blend on high. If the blender is just spinning and not blending, try adding a little more water  and shake down the ice so the pocket of air created at the bottom is gone. If the mixture is too liquid-y add more ice. Once blended taste the slush to make sure it's lemony enough. If not, add another spoonful (or two) of lemonade concentrate and/or squeeze fresh lemon juice in (to taste). Serve in an insulated travel mug (so it won't melt as fast) with a milkshake spoon and a straw.
