DIY McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

McDonald’s Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

McDonald’s recently launched their new Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, and with the success of this flavor others may be wondering how to do it yourself and jump on the bandwagon. Café owners need to be able to compete with this fresh flavor and consumers should be able to enjoy it without having to leave the comfort of their own home. That’s why Big Train® would like to provide the instructions and means to create your very own Strawberry Lemonade frappe, slushi, or smoothie.

Lemon Cooler Fruit Tea Smoothie BlastThe only ingredients you need are:

McWho? Here’s OUR Frozen Strawberry Lemonade!

That’s it! You can make the drink into a blended frappe smoothie (using a blender),  or a slushie granita style (using a frozen drink machine) .  Both preparation methods are on the bottles of Big Train® Fruit Tea Smoothie Blasts and they couldn’t be simpler! To make the beverage on the right, we separately blended 2 oz of each syrup with 2 oz of water and 8 oz of ice. Afterwards we poured them together to create the eye catching and delicious drink pictured. To skip a step  you can blend them both together to get a softer pink colored drink, but the decision is yours to make! As a wholesale supplier, Big Train® is set on providing businesses with all the ingredients necessary to create the perfect drink. So, whether you’re lounging in your backyard this summer or running a tight ship at your small (or large!) business, treat yourself and others to the refreshing  and tangy Frozen Strawberry Lemonade with a little help from Big Train®.

Strawberry Blended Creme Smoothie Frappe Video Recipe

Strawberry-smoothie-recipeIt’s that time of year again. Driving through Irvine near Big Train’s headquarters in Orange County, California you can see a lot of action at the local strawberry fields. Spring has certainly sprung.

Besides having great nutritional value and antioxidants, did you know, for example, that 150 grams of fresh strawberries remove negative emotions? (So we’ve heard) Try it– eat six or seven of these berries – they will apparently relieve your stress! It’s no wonder that strawberry flavored beverages are some of our most popular. And now is the perfect time to start mixing up those strawberry smoothies.

Special thanks to Big Train fan Amanda “@pinkmacprincess” for posting this great video answering the question: “How do you make a Strawberry blended ice smoothie?” In this video recipe Amanda is taking her own twist on Big Train’s Blended Creme Strawberry frappe.

Amanda’s Ingredients:

  • Ice
  • Milk
  • 1 package of Big Train Blended Creme Strawberry powder mix
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Whipped Cream
