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.
