Ingredients

  • 2 c. fresh blueberries
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 2/3 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 c. cold water divided
  • Lemon slices and blueberries to garnish if desired

Instructions

  • Place the blueberries, sugar and 1 cup water in a blender. Blend on medium-high speed for about 1 minute, until the blueberries are completely pureed. Strain the blueberry puree through a fine mesh sieve (or skip this step if you don't mind small pieces of blueberry in your lemonade).
  • Combine the blueberry puree with lemon juice and the remaining 3 cups of water. Add more water, if desired. Stir well, and chill. Serve over ice.

Notes

VARIATIONS
  • Strawberries can be swapped for blueberries to make Strawberry Lemonade
  • Blackberries swapped for the blueberries would be delicious!
  • Taste as you go, you can always add more sugar, lemon juice, or water to make this lemonade exactly how you want it.
  • Swap the sugar for honey.
  • Add a bit of vodka to the mixture to for a spiked lemonade.
EXPERT TIPS!
  • You will want to make sure you have a blender to make this lemonade. My favorite blender is this one, but if you are on more of a budget this one is great too!
  • I like to serve this in mason jars filled with ice and garnished with lemon slices and blueberries. You could even use frozen blueberries to keep it extra cold.
  • Straining the blueberry puree is optional. You can see fleck of blueberries in these photos because I didn’t strain it. It will give you more nutrients and antioxidants if you leave them in, but for a less cloudy final result you can strain it.
  • Did you know if you microwave lemons they are easier to squeeze? Just warm them up for a few seconds or make sure they are room temperature.
