Strawberry Lemonade Bars – Easy & Tasty Squares

These Strawberry Lemonade Bars are super easy to make and taste soooooo good. It will be very hard to just eat one of these strawberry squares!

This recipe is quick and simple that requires your basic ingredients with a touch of sweet and sour. I am aiming to post a new recipe every Friday!!  🙂

These strawberry lemonade bars are the perfect addition to any brunch, luncheon, or dinner party. If you try this recipe during the spring, it is ideal for taking advantage of all the fresh local strawberries in your area! Fresh fruits taste amazing, and so do freshly squeezed lemons! A lifesaver for me is having a lemon squeezer. The lemon squeezer will assist you when you are squeezing your lemons at home. This fabulous yellow lemon squeezer is my favourite.

Lemon juice is used in many recipes, both sweet and savoury, and of course you can juice limes in there too. (Margaritas, anyone?) Freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice is better than the bottle kind, whatever recipe you are making.

Are you more of a raspberry fan than a strawberry lover? No problem, because raspberries will be just as delicious in these fruity lemon bars. Blackberries would also work, if they are your favourites, although the filling would be a darker colour.

After combining the crust ingredients in a mixer, you need to press it into a baking pan and cook briefly. The bar mixture can also be combined using a mixer. You will then pour this over the prepared crust and bake some more.

Once cooled, you can cut perfect lemon strawberry squares. Make sure they are completely cool first, so they hold their shape when you cut them. Enjoy these strawberry lemonade bars with a cup of tea or even a glass of lemonade! Oh and remember – one is not enough!!

A Closer Look at Lemonade

Lemonade is a fascinating beverage on its own. You probably have come across many lemonade stands in your local neighbourhood. Did you know that these lemonade stands have been around for more than 135 years!

A shopkeeper in New York set up a lemonade stand outside his store in 1879 to sell lemonade to passers-by. This was a brand-new idea and had never been done before. In fact, it became so popular and drew enough of a crowd to block the sidewalk. Just imagine the crowd if he was selling lemon strawberry squares too. Or freshly baked lemon bars!

Blogger Bella Bucchiotti of xoxoBella.com shares an easy summer drink recipe for sparkling strawberry lemonade using her SodaStream.

More lemonade stands popped up during that hot summer, selling the refreshing beverage for 5 cents. That was a third of a price the bars were charging. Although the first lemonade stands were set up by adult entrepreneurs, kids started the following year. This was, and still is, a great way for kids to earn money.

Today there are many varieties of lemonade. Not only different brands but also different flavours. Sparkling strawberry lemonade, Arnold Palmer… the list goes on. And spiked lemonade is great for a party! Strawberry lemonade bars play homage to this popular summer beverage, and of course you can enjoy them all throughout the year.
