This Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade is a blend of lemonade and vanilla ice cream. It’s an easy frozen lemonade milkshake recipe that’s perfect for a hot summer’s day. AND, it tastes most like the original with NO added sugar!
Love it, but want to remove the dairy? No problem. Make this Frozen Lemonade instead.
I need to confess something.
I’m in love with Chick-fil-A.
I cannot get enough of that place.
From the grilled chicken, to the chicken nuggets, right down to the Chick-fil-A dipping sauce and lemonade.
The closest one is about 30 minutes away and it’s a good thing it takes that long to get there or I’d be there like every. other. day.

Fortunately, my daughter, Alex, had the genius idea that we should recreate the drink that we both love so much.
WHY had I not thought of that??!!
Our version is so good and definitely satisfies any urge to drive there for one.
This is THE first recipe on the blog that I’ve labeled “the best”.
I’ve done that because I honestly think it is.
Alex and I went through multiple ice cream and lemonade combinations to get the taste as close to the original as possible.
It was labor intensive for sure – all that taste testing! haha
What do I need to make this Frosted Lemonade recipe?
- Breyer’s Natural Vanilla Ice Cream
- Newman’s Own Virgin Lemonade
- fresh lemon juice
- lemon zest
- NO added sugar like some other recipes!
- I highly suggest using the brands of vanilla ice cream and lemonade that I recommend. My daughter and I tested combinations of quite a few ice creams and lemonade and found that using both of these two tasted most like the one at Chick-fil-A.
If by chance you have trouble locating one or both, don’t freak out. It’s still pretty darn delicious if you use what you find.
Lemonade with ice cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest is one of the most refreshing drinks you can make for summer!
Some of the ways my family cools off during the summer months are with desserts!
This time of year, I especially like making treats made with lemon and/or ones that are no bake.
Face it, when it’s hot and humid out there, no one wants to be turning the oven on.
This No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake has been a favorite for years.
It’s easy to make and instantly cools you off with every bite.
My no bake dream bar recipes are super popular all year long, but everyone’s making them when the temperatures rise!
Favorites are Chocolate Peanut Butter Dream Bars, Strawberry Cheesecake Dream Bars, Easy No Bake Turtle Dream Bars, Orange Creamsicle Dream Bars.
BUT, I’ve also make these Oreo Pudding Dream Bars, Chocolate Mint Dream Bars, and the colorful Circus Animal Cookie Dream Bars.
Believe it or not, there are even more here on the blog. Just type Dream Bars in the search bar at the top of the post and you’ll see them!
Looking for more lemon desserts? Check out this post where I’ve got a whole bunch of desserts from different bloggers.
You might just want to make them all.
If you’re interested in some nice cold beverages to cool you off, then I’ve got those, too!
Here you’ll be able to find a different lemonade to please everyone in your family.
I made this Strawberry Lemonade and fell in love with it.
I think lemonade just tastes so much better when it’s loaded with fresh strawberries, don’t you?
Don’t want lemonade? No Worries. I’ve got you covered there, too!
You’ll feel refreshed with this Horchata. It’s an easy Mexican drink that will definitely help you beat the heat.
Frozen drinks are popular this time of year, too.
They’ll also make you think you’re in the tropics with every sip you take as well.
Or if you’re just into water, fill a tall glass of this Cucumber Grapefruit Water.
There’s just something about drinking cool water with some cucumber in it.
It tastes so good.
