Strawberry Lemonade Bars

These Strawberry Lemonade Bars are wonderfully sweet and tart. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar for a little extra sweetness and you have the perfect spring and summer potluck dessert.

Strawberry Lemonade Bars

Made with fresh strawberries and lemon zest and juice, these bars are brusting with bright, fresh flavors.

Straight up lemon bars are one of my favorite summer treats. Add in some strawberries and you get a gorgeous pink flavor and a little fruitiness to balance some of the tartness. So good! The thin layer of filling sits on top of a buttery shortbread crust.

Tips for making Strawberry Lemonade Bars:

  • A food processor is used to make the crust. If you don’t have one, you can mix the crust by hand.
  • You will need either a food processor or a blender to process the strawberry mixture until smooth.
  • Either fresh or frozen strawberries can be used. If using frozen, thaw them completely and drain off any liquid.

Storage

Store bars in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days.
