Star Spangled Lemonade

Share

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays.  I love summer and so a holiday in the middle of the summer with barbecues, fireworks, and some sort of water games (in my family anyway) is always a good time.  We live in an amazing country and I am grateful to call the USA home.   This year it has been so hot, and so instead of thinking about food I have been thinking about beverages.  For some reason lemonade just sounds really refreshing.  

This recipe is a fruity twist on lemonade with a little ‘sparkle’.  It is super easy and fun for a festive holiday beverage!

The base of this lemonade is Izze – which is a sparkling juice beverage.  I like Izze because of the ingredients (and it tastes amazing): Pure juice made from White grape, apple and blueberry juice, sparkling water, citric acid, red grape juice, concentrate, natural flavor. 

 

This lemonade is super simple.  Combine:

  • 24 oz Izze
  • Juice of 6 lemons
  • 1 cup water
  • Sweetener of choice to taste (optional)
  • Fresh Blueberries
  • Ice

The Izze gives it a sparkle and a yummy blueberry flavor.  We didn’t add much sweetener and ours was pretty tart, but my 4 year old drank 2 tall glasses!  I guess it helps that it is 100 degrees outside. You could switch it up and do any berry flavor and it would be delicious!  Happy 4th of July!!

I’ve read from http://www.supernutritionacademy.com that energy drinks aren’t really that energising so I started looking for some easy to prepare but healthy drinks for my kids.
Thanks for your creative recipes for children. They’re very easy to prepare and help me make healthy food for my kids.
