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!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups water

  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries

  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2/3 cup sugar, or to taste

  • 4 slices lemon, for garnish

  • Mint sprigs, optional, for garnish

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Put the water, blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar in a blender.

  3. Blend the mixture until smooth.

  4. Pour the juice through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher.

  5. Serve over ice with a straw, garnished with lemon slices and mint sprigs if desired. Enjoy!
