You can whip this blueberry lemonade up in no time

All you need are a few ingredients, a blender and a sieve and you’re ready to go.

  • Blueberries: Fresh or frozen blueberries are the star ingredient, imparting their natural sweetness and vibrant colour to the lemonade. We’ll strain their juice, and you can use the remaining pulp to upgrade your yoghurt
  • Sugar: A touch of sugar balances the tartness of the lemon juice and enhances the overall flavour. You can substitute this with any natural sweetener but may need to vary the quantity
  • Lemon Juice: Freshly squeezed lemon juice brings a zesty and citrusy punch that brightens up the entire drink.
  • Sparkling Water: Sparkling water adds a delightful effervescence that makes each sip feel like a celebration.

Blueberry Lemonade is not only a thirst-quenching drink but also a versatile base for creative twists. Consider adding a splash of raspberry or pomegranate juice for a berry medley or infusing the lemonade with a hint of lavender, basil or mint for an aromatic touch. You can even create a mocktail version by omitting the sparkling water and serving the blueberry-lemon mixture over crushed ice. Enjoy!
