Blueberry lavender lemonade

Dried lavender and fresh blueberries make this homemade lemonade a refreshing summer hit.

For best results, measure lavender carefully and buy fresh lemon juice — not from concentrate — or squeeze about 10 large lemons.

Ingredients (Serves 16)

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 package (16 ounces) blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda sweetener
  • Cold water


In a 1-gallon pitcher, add 4 cups of ice and set aside. In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the blueberries, sugar and lavender to the pan. Boil for about 5 minutes, until the blueberries have popped and all of the sugar has dissolved.

Strain the blueberry mixture over the pitcher of ice; discard the remaining blueberry mixture. Add the lemon juice and Splenda to the pitcher. Fill to the top with cold water. Mix well.
