Blueberry Lemonade

blueberry lemonade

This is hardly a recipe, but I just had to post it since I’ve pretty much been living on it for the last week! I just can’t get enough! I was trying to copy a huckleberry lemonade I used to get at one of my favorite restaurants. (Beware, there’s audio when you click the link.) This is tasty enough to cover up a boring old lemonade mix. When we lived in the middle of nowhere Moses Lake, Washington and lemons were a buck apiece during the summer I had to lift my ban on powdered lemonade mix. I can’t drink that stuff plain, but if you add enough berries/fruit to it, it acts as a great (and much more cost effective) base. Give this a try, you’ll be glad you did!

Blueberry Lemonade

Serves 2-4 (depending on how greedy you are. For me, this serves ONE.)

1 cup blueberries (frozen is totally fine, since we’ll be freezing these anyhow!)

3/4 cup of blueberry sauce

powdered lemonade to make one quart worth (feel free to use frozen concentrated lemonade or GASP the genuine article!)

2 cups of ICE COLD water

2 cups of ICE COLD lemon lime soda

squeeze of lemon


Freeze the blueberries for at least 30 minutes.

Dissolve the powdered lemonade in the water.

Add the blueberry sauce and mix well.

Pour in the soda and stir to incorporate.

Pour into a pretty glass and squeeze a little lemon juice over the top.

Garnish with the frozen blueberries (and a twist of lemon, if you’re fancy like that). Serve with a straw and enjoy!

Looks really good. I'd love to try this as soon as I get my hands on some blueberries. I already used up the frozen ones I have for my cheesecake. My kids love lemonade and I try to surprise them with little twist and mix once in a while, ;) I think blueberry lemonade will paint a smile on their face, oh and I like the idea of blueberry bits floating on it. :)
