I have an awesome recipe to share with you today that is PERFECT for Summertime Parties. If you plan on having a crowd over here’s a quick and easy way to make Homemade Lemonade in your CrockPot.
A few things I wanted to mention about this recipe is that it makes a LOT so you might need 2 containers. If that happens you use 1 part Lemonade Concentrate to 3 Parts Water at the end. You can also Freeze the Lemonade Concentrate and Save it for later if you want to make one batch and serve only half. I personally don’t think you’ll be able to freeze it because it will go really fast, it’s super yummy!
Crock Pot Lemonade Recipe | Perfect for Summer!
- 2 Cups Sugar
- 4 Cups of Water
- 2 Cups of Lemon Juice
- 12 Cups of Cold Water (Save for the End)
- Combine the First 2 Ingridents (Sugar, & 4 Cups of Water) in a CrockPot
- Heat on High for around 1-2 hours, Stir to Dissolve Sugar Completely
- Add Lemon Juice to Crock Pot and Turn Off to let Cool
- Add in Remaining Water and Chill
- Serve Cold
I have to agree with those wondering about the advantage of slow-cooking water and sugar, when dissolving sugar in hot water is done much faster and cheaper on a stove or in the microwave. About the only advantage of a crock pot is on hot days it can be used outdoors to avoid heating up the kitchen.
Lemon oil may be used in aromatherapy. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system, but may enhance mood.
My husband just had a kidney stone removed. (painful stuff) I understand that lemonade is great to keep them from recurring. Something about the acid, so I am searching for recipes. Homade is always better than store bought ! Thanks for the recipe…will definitely be trying it!
much healthier than the powdered stuff we have in the house(wayyy too much sugar). I actually had a bit of lemon/lime juice so I thought it would an interesting taste. so we’ll see. :)
Just curious if you are using lemon concentrate from real lemons. I always have so many from our tree. What I have done in the past is juice them and put the juice in ice cube trays. Freeze it and then I can pull out for when I need lemon juice for a recipe. Always thought I’d be able to put the cubes in a punch bowl with a good punch recipe.

I love lemonade! What a great way to kick off the summer! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
What is the advantage of heating the water/sugar in the crockpot over using the stove. Does it really taste better? I’m thinking the stove would be faster. I am open to the idea that different cooking method does change the taste though. Just wondering.
OK i clicked on this from FB curious to see the recipe….so, what’s the benefit of using a crock pot?
couldn’t it just be as easily titled microwave lemonade? Or, really-hot-water -from-the-tap lemonade?
the great thing about crock pots is that they concentrate a lot of cooking into a smaller space, over an extended amount of time, in a very controlled device…really beneficial for tough cuts of meat, or soups and stews…..so far as I can tell, this is just dissolving sugar in water, a fairly simple task that is done quickly via other methods.
not trying to be a hater, just curious about the benefits of “slowly dissolving” sugar in water.
I can’t wait to try this, thanks for sharing;)
Sounds delicious! We are HUGE lemonade fans in this house!
