A simple and refreshing recipe for homemade Blueberry Lemonade. Sweetened with honey or sugar, and filled with tart lemon juice and fresh blueberries, you'll never want store bought lemonade again.

mild honey (or sub 1/2 cup+ granulated sugar)
freshly squeezed lemon juice
additional blueberries and lemon slices
Bring one cup of water to a boil. Whisk in honey until dissolved. Set aside to cool slightly. If using sugar instead of honey, skip this step.
Add blueberries, lemon juice, sugar (if using) and 1 cup water to a blender and blend until pureed. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard any solids.
Stir together the blueberry puree, honey mixture (if using) and remaining 3-4 cups water. Chill and serve over ice.
This is a mildly sweet lemonade. If you want it extra sweet, increase the honey from 1/3 to 1/2 cup (note: the honey flavor will be quite strong) OR use 2/3 cup granulated sugar.
