You will be making this all summer long. It is THE perfect thing to serve after a barbecue for dessert (along with the watermelon). It’s so super refreshing and feels light, but best of all, there’s virtually no work. There’s no need to do anything ahead (although you can mix the first three ingredients ahead if you like). Blend it up while the grill is cooling down.


Lemonade Dessert

  • 1 cup cold water

  • 1 cup lemon, such as Tuscanini, or lime juice (fresh is best but not required)

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1 (56-ounce) container pareve ice cream

  • optional garnish: shredded coconut



In a measuring cup, combine water, lemon juice, and sugar. Whisk well with a fork to dissolve sugar. You can do this part ahead and keep this mixture in the refrigerator until ready to blend.


Scoop the ice cream into a blender (it should be firm; straight from the freezer is fine if it’s scoopable). If your blender is large (like a Vitamix), you can mix all the ice cream and lemon juice mixture together at once. If your blender is standard sized, add half the ice cream and half the lemon juice and blend. The mixture will condense and you’ll be able to fit it all at the end.


Serve immediately in tall cups with smoothie (wider) straws and a spoon.


Optionally, sprinkle with coconut (I find the kids don’t like this, but most adults do).
