Do you have a bunch of blueberries on hand and are looking for something to do with them? A great idea is to use them in some homemade lemonade. Adding blueberry flavor to lemonade, gives it an extra note of flavor that is pleasing to the tongue. It's a very simple process to make this lemonade. It starts with making the lemonade itself and then making a blueberry puree to add to it.
For the basic lemonade
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup sugar
6 ½ cups good tasting water
Add all these ingredients together in a 2 ½ quart pitcher. Stir well to combine.
For the blueberry puree
6 oz fresh blueberries
Add sugar to the blueberries just to coat them as if you were going to eat them as in. Then take the blueberries for a spin in a blender or food processor. Pour the puree through a strainer to remove the skin.
Now add the puree to the lemonade and stir to combine. Taste it and add more water or sugar based on your preference. Chill your lemonade and enjoy!
I will try this as I do indeed have a blueberry bush with some fruit in a pot on my terrace. Might not have enough though.
This looks great. I love to make homemade lemonade and have a freezer full of blueberries from my bluberry picking adventure with the kids. I am going to try this one soon!
