What is whipped lemonade?

The popular concoction doing the rounds on TikTok takes inspiration from the classic ice-cream float (lemonade with a scoop of ice-cream in it), with lemonade and some form of "whipable" dairy product being the staple ingredients.

  1. Put all of the ingredients in a blender until the ingredients are combined and you've reached a thick fluffy consistency.
  2. Pour into a cup and top with more whipped cream. Garnish with a lemon slice.
  3. Enjoy!

The TikTok creator did say in the comments that if she was to make it again, she would add more lemon juice to make it taste "a little less milky".

The beauty of this drink is you can experiment with different amounts of each ingredient until you find a combination you like.

We love the added strawberry garnish - who needs to go to a cocktail bar when you can make them this good yourself?

  • Strawberry to garnish

Method:

  1. Add the whipping cream and kool aid to a glass and whisk it up until it has a fluffy consistency.
  2. Half-fill another glass (which is the glass you'll be drinking from) with ice cubes and lemonade.
  3. Using a spoon, dollop the whipped cream and kool aid mix onto the lemonade and garnish with a strawberry.
  4. Enjoy!

3) Boozy whipped lemonade

If you've got friends coming over this summer, this 'spiked whipped lemonade' could be a new one to try out.

Not only that, but this recipe uses coconut milk, so it's vegan friendly and dairy-free.

The video from @purewow has 770 likes, with users commenting, "this looks so good" and "perfect for summer."

Here's how to make the adult version of whipped lemonade.

You will need:

  • Coconut milk or coconut cream
  • Red food colouring (natural colouring is better for you)
  • Ice
  • ½ can lemonade or diet lemonade - your choice
  • 25ml vodka (for a single) or 50ml vodka (for a double)
  • Fresh berries to garnish

Method:

  1. Add a few drops of red food colouring to coconut milk or cream and whip it up until there's a fluffy consistency.
  2. Add the ice, vodka and lemonade to a glass - a martini glass is used in the TikTok video.
  3. Dollop the whipped coconut milk mixture on top of the lemonade until the glass is full.
  4. Add berries to garnish
  5. Enjoy!

There are so many variations of the summery drink on TikTok, so you're bound to come across one you like.

Some users have opted to use powdered lemonade instead or just lemon juice. So with so many varieties - what makes a whipped lemonade whipped lemonade? The common denominator is the blend of citrus with dairy.

Enjoy!
