Homemade Blueberry Lemonade
Fresh, sweet pureed blueberries combined with tart, fresh-squeezed lemon juice makes for a deliciously refreshing summer drink!
packets Equal 0 Calorie sweetener
or more depending on your taste preference
about 5 1/2 lemons freshly squeezed lemon juice
ice cold water
Blueberries and lemon slices to garnish
Place the blueberries, Equal 0 Calorie Sweetener 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 (you can 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.
Tip: to get the most juice out of your lemons, bring the lemons to room temperature before juicing.
