Your new favorite summer beverage–an easy and refined sugar-free strawberry lemonade that is sweetened with dates and made with just 4 simple ingredients!


  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1 cup (140g) diced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) medjool dates*
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about 1/4 cup or to taste; we used Meyer)
  • Optional: 2-3 sprigs of fresh mint


    • Large storage containers, such as a pitcher, mason jar, or similar container


  1. In a high-speed blender, blend all of the ingredients together (except for the mint) until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove any date pulp. This is not necessary but highly recommended for smooth lemonade.
  3. Transfer into an airtight container and add in the sprigs of mint if using. Seal and place into the refrigerator for 1 hour or until chilled.
  4. Serve over ice.


  • If your dates are not soft, soak them in hot water for about 20 minutes or until softened, and drain before use.
  • Add more dates if you want the lemonade sweeter!
