Use fresh or frozen thawed blueberries in this easy, refreshing blueberry lemonade. I used 2/3 cup of sugar in this recipe, but you can play with the sugar amount. As you blend, start with 1/2 cup of sugar and work up if it isn't sweet enough.
Add a sprig of fresh mint or simply garnish each glass with a few lemon slices!
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 2 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh, or use frozen thawed blueberries)
- 1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh)
- 2/3 cup sugar (or use a little less or a little more, to taste)
- 4 slices lemon (for garnish)
- Optional: mint sprigs
Gather the ingredients.
Put the water, blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar in a blender.
Blend the mixture until smooth.
Pour the juice through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher.
Serve over ice with a straw, garnished with lemon slices and mint sprigs if desired. Enjoy!
