Cool Down and Keep it Fresh with a Sip of Blueberry Limeade

Blueberry Limeade

Last Updated on

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.  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’.

Cheers to summer with my Frozen Blueberry Limeade Recipe!

Frozen Blueberry Limeade by Jodie Fitz

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.

Did You Know, American Colonists boiled blueberries with milk to create grey paint?

Another family favorite = my Reese’s Fake Shake.

Why is it a ‘fake shake’?  Because it’s thick and delicious, but there’s actually no ice cream in the mix.

On a side note because I love fun facts, have you ever wondered where the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup actually came from?  It was actually created/invented by a man who’s name was H.B. Reese.

So, if you read this and win at trivia, you’re welcome! (wink)
