Hi all! Today I’m excited to bring you a recipe from Deborah of Journey to Natural Living. Deborah has been a friend of my family’s for many, many years, and while my blender gets used mostly for Easy Blender Mayonnaise, she takes blender recipes to a whole new level in her book Naturally Sweet Blender Treats.
This recipe from the book looks perfect for this hot summer weather. I don’t know about, but I love watermelon… And blueberries… And limeade, so why not combine the three, eh?
Your blender is the ideal kitchen appliance for preparing and serving the best of the season’s fruit flavors, without heating the kitchen.
Watermelon Blueberry Limeade
This refreshing limeade beverage combines fresh watermelon and blueberries to deliciously celebrate the arrival of summer.
Yield: 4 cups
- 3 cups watermelon, chunks
- ½ cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 1½ cups chilled spring water
- ⅛ cup lime juice
- ¼ teaspoon stevia powder or liquid, to taste
Add all ingredients to a blender and mix, starting on lowest speed and quickly increase to high until berries are pulverized. You can pour the beverage through a sieve to remove seed particles before serving, if desired. If you use frozen berries and chilled watermelon and water, your limeade is ready to serve, no ice needed. Serve or chill in refrigerator.
Use an ice cream scoop to easily remove fresh watermelon from a watermelon half when making blender beverages or fresh fruit salads.
