Blueberry Lemonade

Blueberry lemonadeOne of my favorite drinks is lemonade and The Big Guy loves blueberries. I got a good deal on some local blueberries at a local market this past weekend. They local blueberries made the pre-packaged kind look puny. I really prefer local produce when possible. Oh and of course, I’m still breaking in the Ninja.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar — we are cutting down on sugar so if you like it sweeter add more.
  • 1-2 cups blueberries (more if you prefer)
  • 2 big lemons — juiced
  • 1 spring fresh mint
  • ice — optional
  • water

Instructions:

  1. Bring 2 cups water and 1 cup sugar to a boil. Boil until sugar is dissolved.
  2. I used the 72 oz. pitcher for the Ninja. Pour in sugar mixture, blueberries and lemon juice. I added ice so we could drink it immediately.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Add mint leaves and pulse until leaves are broken up. I think it was about 5-10 seconds.
  4. Pour into 1 gallon pitcher and enough water to fill.
  5. Chill or add ice in step #2
