If you know me or been following my blog, you probably know that I love blueberries in smoothies. Today I brought you a very refreshing and delicious drink, perfect for summer, Blueberry Lemonade.
This drink can be found almost all the time in my fridge, in fact my family reaches for it instead of water, that's how refreshing it is. I've used sugar but if you wish you can use any sweetener you like.
