Home Ice Cream/Frozen Treats Homemade Icees and McD's Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Homemade Icees and McD's Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

by Laura

I have been having fun using my Cusinart ice cream maker and made some homemade frozen treats with it.  You can make homemade icees with any soda pop and I also made a copy cat version of McDonald’s frozen strawberry lemonade.  My family tried the McDonald’s Version and said they liked mine better.

Homemade Icees

  • 3 (12 oz) cans or 4 1/2 cups of chilled soda pop (I used orange Crush)

Place soda in your 1 1/2 qt Cuisinart ice cream maker and freeze accordingly for 20 minutes.  Serve in 4 glasses and enjoy!
Recipe adapted from Bake at 350.

Homemade McD’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

  • 4 1/2 cups of chilled lemonade (I used Tropicana Trop50)
  • Smucker’s strawberry syrup

Place soda in your 1 1/2 qt Cuisinart ice cream maker and freeze accordingly for 20 minutes.  Place some of the frozen lemonade in the bottom of each glass followed by a good squirt of the strawberry syrup.  Fill glasses with remaining frozen lemonade and enjoy!
This recipe is a Real Mom Kitchen original.

Because of your post I decided to buy an ice cream maker from W&S! However I think that it is 2 quarts and not 1 1/2–how (or would I) change the measurements for that?

I have a Cuisinart icecream maker and haven’t used it much. When you say 20 minutes, do you mean run it like you are making icecream for 20 minutes?

Totally brilliant! How have I not thought to put pop in the ice cream maker! YUM!

I love putting drinks in my ice cream maker. I did a similar lemonade last year and I’ve even been known to put margaritas in mine for parties. I’ll have to try the icee since I love orange soda.

I just have to warn everyone. I was curious about the McDonald’s frozen strawberry lemonade and so I tried it. It was horrible. Maybe I got a bad batch but it was so gross. Don’t try the McDonald’s version and make Laura’s recipe instead.

I had no idea you could do this with an ice cream maker! Wonderful! I love the strawberry lemonade idea, but doing it with crushed strawberries instead of the sauce. Yum”

Yum!! I had no idea. Can I do this with any ice cream maker? If this is true, it will change our lives. 🙂 Seriously.
