Lemonade Lovers Blueberry Lemonade

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer I begin to get summer and sunshine on the brain. And one thing I have always equated with summer is homemade lemonade!  Is there anything more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than a tall glass of ice-cold, made-from-scratch lemonade?

As spring begins to roll into the long hot lazy days of summer, it’s the perfect time to try this variation on that summertime classic. Made with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and sweet, juicy blueberries, this Blueberry Lemonade is the perfect combination of sweet and tart – and it tastes just as good as it looks!

Homemade Blueberry Lemonade recipe using Equal Zero Calorie Sweetener

Thanks to the use of fresh blueberries, this delectable drink is high in antioxidants, and because I used Equal® 0 Calorie Sweetener instead of sugar, it’s low in calories, too! It’s a much better option for your family than those sugar-loaded store-bought juices. And best of all, it’s easy to make.

Homemade Blueberry Lemonade Recipe

As is, this homemade lemonade recipe makes about 1/2 pitcher. Once you begin to combine the ingredients, taste it as you go in order to get the amount of sweetness you prefer. Tip: to get the most juice out of the lemons, bring them up to room temperature first.

Ingredients You Need to Make Blueberry Lemonade

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 16-18 packets Equal® 0-Calorie Sweetener (more or less depending on taste preference)
  • 2/3 cup (about 5 1/2 lemons) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 cups ice-cold water, divided
  • Blueberries for garnishing

How to Make Homemade Blueberry Lemonade

Place the blueberries, Equal® 0-Calorie Sweetener and 1 cup water in a blender. Blend on medium-high speed for about 1 minute, or until the blueberries are completely pureed. Next, 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).

In a pitcher, combine the blueberry puree, the lemon juice and the remaining 3 cups of water. Stir well, then taste. If needed, add more water. Stir well, and chill for at least an hour. Serve over ice. Enjoy!

Why Use a Sugar Alternative?

Equal® 0-Calorie Sweetener is a great-tasting, sugar alternative that adds just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. It’s so versatile it can be used in cooking, baking, and to add a bit of sweetness to your favorite beverages. I use it in my coffee, in smoothies, and even sprinkle it over my cereal.  It’s a great alternative to sugar, especially for those people living with diabetes who want to replace to reduce their sugar intake and keep their blood glucose levels in check.
