Red, White and Blue Berry Lemonade

YUM.  This Berry Lemonade recipe is D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S.  It requires a little time and prep, but honestly, it’s worth it!

What’s in the mix?

Fresh Lemons
Fresh Raspberries 
Fresh blackberries 
Honey 
Extracts 
Ice and water

It’s like a frozen lemonade with berry infused flavors and because it’s all made with fresh fruit, it’s actually light and refreshing.

When I’m serving this recipe for entertaining purposes, I actually make the raspberry and blackberry puree ahead of time and keep them covered in the refrigerator until I’m ready to serve.  Then, I add the lemon juice, honey, vanilla and water into the blender pitcher and keep that in the refrigerator too.  Just before serving I take it out, add the ice and blend the lemonade.  Then I pour it into the glasses, top it off with the berry purees and serve it to my guests.  It has that wow factor that looks like it took a whole lot of time and effort to make, but with the right gadgets was made with ease.

Frozen Berry Lemonade

Ingredients

  • Red:
  • ½ cup raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon raspberry extract
  • White:
  • 4 cups ice
  • 2 lemons, fresh
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Blue:
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon raspberry extract

Instructions

Red:

Rinse the raspberries. Place the raspberries, honey and raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a syrup like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix. Set the mixture aside.

White:

Cut the lemons in half. Squeeze the lemon juice from the lemons. If you have a citrus juicer simply squeeze the juice right into a blender pitcher. If you have to squeeze by hand, squeeze the juice into a glass or bowl first so that you can extract any seeds before adding the juice to the blender.

Add the lemon juice, ice, water, honey and extract to the blender and blend well.

Blue:

Rinse the blackberries. Place the blackberries, honey and raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a syrup like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix.

Pull it all together:

Pour the frozen lemonade into your serving glasses. Note: This recipe should make four drinks. Add a tablespoon of the red raspberry syrup on top. Add a tablespoon of the blackberry syrup on top. Serve. Straws are optional ….

Notes

More on Making this Red, White & Blue Frozen Berry Lemonade:

Lessons for the kiddos: If you are making this with children, here are a few lessons to focus on when making this recipe;

  • List Making
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Fruit prep
  • Measuring ingredients
  • Citrus juicing
  • Blending
  • Storing

Shopping for Lemons: When shopping for lemons, hold the fruit and determine if it is heavy. The heavier the fruit and the thinner the skin, the more juice it has. A ripe lemon should be firm, with a fine textured peel that’s a deep yellow color. 

Lemon Facts for Kids:

  • The lemon is native to Asia, around Northeast India, North Burma, and China. Grab a word map and find these locations; Geography and cooking go together sometimes!
  • Even the leaves of a lemon tree can be used to make tea and in the preparation of cooked meats and seafoods.
  • The lemon is an evergreen tree, it blooms (a white flower) and produces fruit all year round. Each tree can produce between 500 and 600 pounds of lemons a year = WOWZA fact!
