Frozen Blackberry Lemonade

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.  Is it just me or was it so hard to get back into the swing of things this week?  I vote that the Monday after a holiday just shouldn’t count 😉 Anyways, today’s post is a little different than what I usually share.  When I did my reader survey at the beginning of the year, I was surprised to see that so many of you wanted to see more recipes.  Ask and you shall receive! 😉  Today’s recipe for frozen blackberry lemonade is totally guilt free and is the perfect spring/summer drink!

I’m not always the healthiest eater but I try to cut back on junk as much as possible.  During the warmer months I crave flavored lemonade like no other, but finding a tasty blackberry lemonade that’s not packed with sugar and artificial ingredients is next to impossible.  Thanks to Zevia soda I found the missing ingredient to make the perfect frozen drink! Zevia is non-GMO project verified, vegan, kosher, gluten free and clear in color.  It is also naturally sweetened by Stevia, a small plant that provides 200x the sweetness of sugar but has no caloric value and doesn’t raise blood sugar levels.  The flavors are all so delicious and come from real ingredients you would find in your own kitchen!

Side note: ever since I was pregnant with Mason I’ve been totally addicted to root beer.  I’ve been trying to break my habit and luckily Zevia’s ginger root beer is helping me do so!  So if you’ve been wanting a healthier option for soda I highly recommend trying out Zevia! Check out all of the flavors and where to buy them here.

Okay, now time to share this yummy frozen blackberry lemonade recipe!  I do want to mention that these measurements are what I started out with… Once everything was blended, I tasted it and adjusted it to my liking.  You may want to add more or less of any ingredient depending on how you like it.  If you want a truly frozen drink, I suggest adding more ice… I like a little more liquid (hence the melting at the bottom of the glass) but if you want a slushee consistency I’d add another handful of ice.  Oh, and I know this is a blackberry lemonade recipe but Zevia black cherry soda is my secret ingredient! 😉 The black cherry flavor adds a little something extra to the blackberries and in my opinion totally makes the recipe!
