Blueberry Lemonade with water being poured into the glass.
Hey everyone! Chelsea back from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. 🙂 When the weather heats up I live for icy cold beverages and delicious ice cream treats.

Flavored lemonades are my family’s favorite drinks so we have them all summer long — strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and mango lemonades are constantly being made around my home.

My husband’s favorite is blueberry lemonade and this recipe has a fun twist — it’s got sparkling water added in.

Most flavored lemonades add in water which is also delicious, but this one has sparkling water giving it a little extra something fun.

Enjoy!
