This Homemade Pineapple Lemonade recipe is a thirst-quenching, sweet, summery drink you can make right in your own kitchen and enjoy throughout the season! Garnish with raw sugar, a lemon or lime wedge, or a splash of lime juice! Serving suggestions included! {Vegan & GF}


  • 1 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks

  1. Pour lemon juice into a mixing bowl or large glass jar and set aside.
  2. Next, cut a fresh pineapple into chunks and add one cup’s worth to the lemon juice. Then stir in the agave nectar and refrigerate the mixture for at least two hours to overnight.
  3. See variations below for ways to enjoy this beverage. You can discard the pineapple chunks or keep them in the drink, depending on how you want to serve your lemonade. Garnish serving glasses with raw sugar, add a splash of lime juice, or add lemon or lime wedges, if desired.
  4. Keep refrigerated and enjoy within two days.


Serving suggestions:

  • On the rocks. On a hot summer day, add handfuls of ice to your Homemade Pineapple Lemonade. As the ice melts, you’ll have a softer-flavored lemonade on your hands.
  • Sparkling water. Pour about 1/4 cup Homemade Pineapple Lemonade into glasses. Then add handfuls of ice and pour sparkling water over the top. Gently stir everything together so the flavors have a chance to blend. While I haven’t tried every flavor of sparkling water, I do think lemon, lime, or grapefruit would taste delicious with Homemade Pineapple Lemonade.
  • Flavored ice cubes. Pour your Homemade Pineapple Lemonade into ice cube trays and freeze them. When you’re in the mood for a flavorful drink, add them to sparkling water or Agave-Infused Homemade Lemonade.
  • Soft drinks. Add a dollop of Homemade Pineapple Lemonade to lemon lime soft drinks.
