There are a few foods that make me think of summer every time I have them. Lemonade, watermelon, popsicles, blueberries. This blueberry lemonade is the perfect summertime drink.
Blueberry lemonade isn’t a traditional lemonade flavor, but its just as tasty as raspberry, strawberry or plain lemonade! Its perfectly, sweet and tart and such a great drink for a warm day!
Its quick and easy to make with only 3 ingredients, plus water. You’ll juice your lemon. Puree your blueberries with a bit of water, and put the juice through a strainer to get rid of the skin and any chunks. Mix the two together with more water. Then you’ll mix in your SPLENDA ZERO™ Liquid Sweetener. You can mix the sweetener in with the pitcher of lemonade or squeeze a bit into each glass individually.
I recently discovered SPLENDA ZERO™ Liquid Sweetener and its the perfect addition to my summertime drinks. Its an easy way for me to get the perfect amount of sweetness in every sip of my drinks without any sugar, which means no carbs and no calories. Plus adding it to my lemonade, means I don’t have to make a syrup by heating up the sugar to dissolve the granules, like I do in this blackberry lemonade.
