Refreshing Blueberry Lemonade Recipe

Refreshing Homemade Blueberry Lemonade Recipe - sixtimemommy.com

Before being diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes Lemonade was one of my all-time favorite drinks. I love how you can make it as bitter, sweet or tart as you like. I love that you can add fruit and make it unique. It’s always been refreshing and always quenched any thirst I had.

But, when that day came that I was diagnosed I wasn’t able to drink it anymore. Now I’ve found I can have this recipe I just need to replace the sugar with Splenda, which I don’t like having very often so this is a rare treat for me until I can drink it normally again.

Blueberry Lemonade Recipe:

Blueberry Syrup

  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 water
  • 1/2 cup sugar (honey or splenda works too – but lemonade with honey tastes a bit different)

Directions for the syrup: Combine the ingredients above in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and bring to a slight boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the berries have broken down…. about 5 mins.

Strain in a fine sieve. Allow to cool.

Lemonade:

  • 1 cup of fresh lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
  • 5 cups water
  • Sugar
  • Ice Cubes

Directions: Mix lemonade ingredients and blueberry syrup together. Test for sweetness – you may need to add more sugar if too tart! (this is more of a personal opinion). Serve with ice and blueberries and some slices of lemon.
