Recipe: Low-Glycemic Blueberry Lemonade


After picking blueberries with friends, I knew I had to find lots of ways to enjoy the 2 quarts I brought home while still fresh. Here’s one of my solutions!

When made with stevia or another calorie-free sweetener, this blueberry lemonade is a delightful low-glycemic treat. However, if you don’t like stevia,  you can sweeten it to taste with your favorite natural sweetener. I also made it just a few cups at a time, so it was always freshly made. Adjust the amounts for your needs.

Makes 2 servings.


1 C fresh blueberries
¾ freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
Stevia (or sweetener of choice) to taste
1 C cold water
ice cubes


1. Put the blueberries and stevia in a small blender or food processor and puree

2. Add the lemon juice and water to a pitcher and strain the puree through a strainer or cheesecloth into the pitcher

3. Whisk together well and pour over ice cubes in your favorite tall glass

4. Enjoy on your patio or anywhere outdoors!
