This Homemade Blueberry Lemonade is so easy to make and really refreshing!  Sweetened with maple syrup too!


  • 12 ounces fresh blueberries
  • 7 cups + 1/3 cup water, divided
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, or 3/4 cup if you don’t want it quite so tart
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, or more if you want it sweeter


  1. Add the blueberries and 1/3 cup water to a medium sized saucepan and place over medium heat.  Cook until blueberries are starting to burst open, about 5 minutes, stirring often.  Let blueberry mixture cool and then add to a blender and blend.
  2. Pour the blueberry syrup into a large pitcher and then add the fresh lemon juice, maple syrup and 7 cups of water.  Mix well and then pour into cups filled with ice or refrigerate until ready to use.


Blueberry Lemonade will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  You can also freeze it in ice cube trays for up to 6 months.
