With just a few basic ingredients you can have this raspberry lemonade ready to be enjoyed.

  • Lemons- We use freshly squeezed lemons for this lemonade. Store-bought lemonade may also be used.
  • Water- The water is for the lemonade base.
  • Sweetener- Regular sugar, stevia, simple syrup, liquid cane sugar, agave nectar and even maple syrup may all be used as a sweetener.
  • Raspberries- Fresh raspberries work the BEST for this homemade lemonade, but frozen raspberries will work as well.
All the ingredients needed for raspberry lemonade laid out.


All you need is just 10 minutes and this delicious lemonade is ready to enjoy.

  1. Raspberry Syrup– Add the water, sweetener and raspberries to a blender and mix until pureed.
  2. Lemonade– In a small saucepan, heat the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to completely cool.
  3. In a large pitcher, mix together the lemon juice, water and ice. Pour the raspberry syrup through a fine-mesh strainer into the pitcher and mix.
  4. Enjoy– Serve over cubed ice, raspberries, and lemon slices and enjoy!

If you don’t mind the lemonade chunky, skip running the syrup through a strainer.


  • Sparkling Lemonade- Substitute the water for carbonated water (sparkling water).
  • Berry Lemonade- Use mixed berries for a berry lemonade.
  • Raspberry Mint- Add mint to the blender and it will give you a raspberry mint lemonade.
  • Watermelon Mint- Opt-out of the raspberries, add watermelon and mint into the blender and make watermelon mint lemonade.

What is the best way to juice the lemons?

We love to use THIS handheld citrus juice or with THIS juicer.

How do I properly strain the raspberry syrup?

Once you puree the raspberry mixture, add a strainer to a bowl or over the pitcher and pour in the raspberry syrup slowly allowing the strainer to do the work. To make it faster, use a spatula to force the syrup through the strainer.

Can I freeze this drink?

Yes! You can make popsicles out of this recipe. Use THESE molds to freeze and enjoy popsicles in the summertime.

How do I store this raspberry lemonade?

Store the lemonade in the fridge in a pitcher for up to 3-4 days.

How long will this lemonade last?

If you store it properly, it can last up to 3-4 days.
