2 1/4 cups
fresh lemon juice
Pretty easy and very delicious. I used lemon juice from concentrate and only used 2 cups of the lemon juice. I also used frozen rather than fresh blueberries! Hits the spot on a hot day.
I had a lot of blueberries, so I tried this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and it was 'ok'. If I were to make it again, I would puree the blueberries and strain them into the lemonade. It's also a bit sweet.
I have made this so many times, I have lost count. My daughter (2 and very picky) loves it. I cut the sugar in half because the blueberries are sweet enough on their own, also I put a few cups of the lemonade in the blender with frozen blueberries, puree it and strain it, gets rid of all the seeds and skin fragments. But it is seriously, sooooo good.
I was looking for a truly HOT pink lemonade, and this is it! I put the blueberries in a saucepan with a little water and heated them up for a few minutes to get them to release their juices. Then I strained that mixture over my pitcher to avoid the seed problem. Worked like a charm. My daughter loved this. It was sweet (but not too sweet) and refreshing.
This was a fun, flavorful and colorful twist on traditional lemonade. I used a mix of frozen blueberries and strawberries only because I had already packaged them that way for Hubs' smoothies, but I have to admit I did like that combination. I simmered them for about 5 minutes in the 1 c. water but didn't add the sugar for the syrup because I was going to use Splenda (I find I don't like its taste once it's heated). I strained everything into my pitcher - the blueberry/strawberry mixture as well as the lemon juice. After adding the water and the Splenda I was pleased to find it a vivid hot pink! I like this. It's different. It's a little too tart but as the ice melts that won't be an issue - if you can wait that long. Interesting, I gave some to Hubs who was working out in the yard. His remark was, "It's good! I don't know what it is, but it's good!"
This was delicious! I like the blueberries whole myself, my family wanted them strained, so I just used a pitcher with a slotted spout! Great variation on an old favorite ! ENJOY!
This is awesome! First, I couldn't get it to turn hot pink, but after I left it over night with the blueberries, it came out very much hot pink! I made it for a party and everyone loved it!
AWESOME! I subbed splenda for the regular sugar (same amount) and used frozen blueberries that I boiled with the water/sugar mixture. As this boiled, I crushed the blueberries. I strained that mixture to get all the skin/seeds out and proceeded with the recipe. Also, I didn't have quite enough fresh lemon juice, so I had to make up for it with bottled. This is so tasty and refreshing and I absolutely LOVE the tartness to sweetness ratio! I know I will be making this often! Thanks for sharing. :)
