Frozen Strawberry and Sweet Tea Lemonade
It’s front porch sittin’ and sweet tea sippin’ time here in Alabama! This 2 ingredient Frozen Strawberry and Sweet Tea Lemonade combines two of my favorite Southern drinks: strawberry lemonade and sweet tea. Now that’s a new Southern twist! And I made it with Southern Breeze Half and Half-flavored zero calorie sweet tea bags. Update: You can also make Frozen Strawberry Lemonade using lemonade in place of sweet tea. Either way, it’s quick, easy and refreshing!

While Strawberry Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks, all the sugar and calories that come with it are not! I already knew I loved Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Half and Half (half lemonade-half sweet tea) because the presweetened individual tea bags have ZERO calories.
So, when I wanted to try making a frozen strawberry lemonade to enjoy in my “Happy Place” (covered back porch with canvas curtains and papasan chair), I knew it was going to start with Southern Breeze sweet tea.
When I looked on Pinterest to get a general idea of how many strawberries, how much ice, and how much liquid, I was surprised to see how much sugar was used in many of the recipes. Many recipes also used of frozen strawberries-with added sugar!
I did like the idea of using just frozen strawberries instead of adding ice-because you know I’m all about shortcuts in my recipes. That eliminated one ingredient. You’ve probably frozen bananas before to add to a smoothie. This is the same idea.
Freeze your own strawberries
Avoid the extra sugar from the strawberries frozen in syrup and get the most vibrant red color by freezing your own fresh strawberries.
To freeze fresh strawberries remove the green caps first. Then freeze in mini muffin pans or a cookie sheet depending on how many you want to freeze. I love the fact that Southern Breeze Sweet Tea comes in individual tea bags so I can make this refreshing drink one at a time in my Magic Bullet Mini blender.
After 2 hours, fresh strawberries should be frozen. The Magic Bullet blender will hold about 5 medium size strawberries. Add 1/2 cup of Southern Breeze Half and Half flavor sweet tea and blend until smooth.
Pack frozen fresh strawberries in a zip top plastic bag after freezing them in muffin tins. This way it’s easy to pull just a few out at a time to make Frozen Strawberry and Sweet Tea Lemonade any time.
2 ingredients. 2 minutes prep. 20 calories.
Voila! Frozen Strawberry and Sweet Tea Lemonade. Done. 2 Ingredients. 20 calories. Yes please!
The half and half flavor (half lemonade, half sweet tea) is the perfect flavor to make this frozen lemonade/tea. It also creates another shortcut because it has the lemonade And sweet tea flavors with just ONE ingredient.

Variation: Use purchased lemonade instead of sweet tea and it's still 2 ingredients but it does add some calories.
- 5 medium frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup prepared half and half flavor Southern Breeze Sweet Tea (according to package directions)
Place the strawberries in a Magic Bullet mini blender or other small powerful blender.
Add half and half (half lemonade, half sweet tea) flavor tea. top with the lid and process until smooth. That's it! No ice needed. Pour into a glass and garnish with lemon slices and a strawberry, you like!
To prepare the Southern Breeze half and half flavored sweet tea, simply pour 8 oz (1 cup) of cold water over 1 tea bag, let step for 5 or 6 minutes. Toss out the tea bag.
Enjoy the extra 1/2 cup of prepared tea immediately or save it in the fridge for the next day.
