Frozen Blueberry Limeade Recipe
The temps are rising, honestly I’m not complaining, but it is time to pull out a few ‘cool down’ kind of recipes like my Frozen Blueberry Limeade Recipe. This recipe is refreshingly delicious and made with all whole ingredients so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of peak blueberry season here in the northeast.
I have always loved fun summer drink recipes and mixing up tasty concoctions. We get to keep the oven off, still have fun, cool things down, keep it fresh and still make a sweet sipping memory.
This frozen mix is certain to be a summer ‘flav fav’ because it’s definitely one of mine. I recently made this for a group and the response ‘…this is light and refreshing and not overly sweet, it’s delicious‘.
Here is the recipe for you to measure, blend and try…
- 4 cups ice
- 2 cups water
- ½ cup honey
- ½ cup fresh frozen blueberries
- ¼ cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add the ice, water, honey, frozen blueberries, lime juice and vanilla extract into a blender. Blend the mixture thoroughly and serve.
How Many Limes? You will need approximately 2 limes to yield ¼ cup of lime juice.
Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice: Cut each lime in half. Squeeze the juice into a measuring cup either by hand or by using a citrus juicer. If you are hand squeezing the lime, always squeeze it into a cup first vs the blender pitcher so that you can measure if the recipe requires.
Lesson for Kids in the Kitchen: There are always lessons in every recipe, here are a few to focus on if you are making this with the kiddos.

Here’s a little odd fact about blueberries (just Because): Did You Know that American Colonists boiled blueberries with milk to create grey paint? It sounds weird, right? But apparently truth!
If you knew this fun fact, awesome! And, if you didn’t, now you do. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll need that little odd factoid when you play trivia at some point (wink).
More Frozen Yum: We all need frozen drinks during the summer! Here’s another delicious cool down; my Frozen Red, White and Blue Lemonade. It’s another fruit filled sip to blend and enjoy.
