This recipe was originally posted March 2014, but was updated with new photos February 2017.

This is the easiest creamy drink to make!

The recipe only calls for TWO ingredients: vanilla ice cream and lemonade!

It’s not as tart as frozen lemonade, it’s definitely more creamy with a nice, sweet citrus flavor throughout.

If you want to boost the flavor a bit, you can add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and/or top the drink with lemon zest.

This was my first time using meyer lemons instead of regular lemons. They have a sweetness that regular lemons don’t have.

I didn’t realize how orange-y meyer lemons look – so don’t let these pictures fool you, those aren’t oranges, they are meyer lemons!

These lemon drop shakes would be extra fun for summer too. You could freeze them into small dixie cups with popsicle sticks in the middle.

Simply peel the cup away from the shake after it is completely frozen. And now you have a frozen lemon drop shake!

    • Hi Sara! We’re actually from MN so we’re going back to visit our families near the Minneapolis area!

    • Have a lovely time! I am in Eagan, and I’d like to say that Spring has finally sprung here, but I’d be lying. This winter has been especially brutal, so if you’re coming anytime soon, bring warm clothes. :(

    • WHAT?! We’re from Eagan! Do you have a blog?

Hopefully one day. I really admire the art in what you do, and that you share it with all of us. Yay for Eagan!!! :)
