Frosted Blueberry Lemonade

8 reviews / 5 average

Today’s vibrant smoothie recipe post is sponsored by our good friends at Bai5! Bring on the healthy smoooooothies.

So maybe I went ahead and jumped the gun on summer a little bit.

April? I could have sworn it was, like, July or something.

After a stretch of 70 degree sunny days here in Minnesota, reality came crashing in on us and right now I am literally writing this post about Frosted Blueberry Lemonade (summer! WANT SO BAD) with doors and windows tightly closed to keep out the 35 degree sleet. Please no snow, please no snow, please no snow.

I am burrowing deep into my thickest Forever 21 grandma-style sweater and I have the heat set to 73 degrees because that’s as high as the More Responsible Spouse will let me go. The forecast is not looking much better for the rest of the week, and I feel the ultimate sad face emoji coming on – the one with the crinkled eyebrows and mouth wide open, crying out in distress.

It has come to this.

(also: a favorite thing of mine right now is identifying my real life emotions in real life conversations by describing myself as an emoji. Bjork loves me so much.)

All that to say, I need the warmth and I need it n-o-w. And in case of emergency where Minnesota April plays summer-teasing tricks of me and there is actually no warmth to be found, I will accept things with just those warm weather vibes.

And that’s why I’m sharing this Frosted Blueberry Lemonade today. Warm weather vibes, my friends. WWV.

If I really embrace all that the WWV of the Frosted Blueberry Lemonade have to offer, I can basically create a beach party in my kitchen right now: sweaters and frosted blueberry lemonades and Spotify Top Pop Hits and Sage snoring in the other room. You know you wanna be here.

As you might remember from this Coconut Green Smoothie post a few weeks back, we are big fans of Bai5 around here – we buy ours at Target and it has become a regular item on our grocery list.

We like Bai5 for a few reasons, one of which is that they use the outer part of the coffee fruit (!) to make these yummy drinks so you get a tiny boost of caffeine – similar to the amount in a cup of green tea – and you also get the natural antioxidants from the coffee fruit infused into the drinks. Also likable: the drinks are sweetened naturally with organic stevia.

For us, Bai5 is a great alternative to juice or pop for just a regular drinking drink, plus it works well for mixed or special occasion drinks, and best of all –> it has become an essential in our daily smoothies.

You’ve tried it already, right? I know many of you have – it’s been so fun to hear from you as you try all their new flavors. YUHHHMMMMS.

You guys, just make a Frosted Blueberry Lemonade already.

I know I’m not the only one who needs summer to come, like, five months ago.

Frosted Blueberry Lemonade


  • Author: Pinch of Yum
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x

Description

Frosted Blueberry Lemonade – made with just two main ingredients. Super healthy, refreshing, and ready in seconds! So good.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups Bai5 Limu Lemon
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons light agave nectar
  • a handful of fresh mint (optional)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt (optional)

Instructions

  1. Soften the blueberries in the microwave for 30 seconds or just leave them sitting out at room temperature for 20 minutes or so. They should still be partially frozen but soft enough to easily blend.
  2. Blend the blueberries, Bai5 Limu Lemon, lemon juice and zest, agave nectar, mint leaves, and yogurt together until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately topped with a few fresh mint sprigs. If you can’t serve immediately, just be sure to stir or shake the frosted blueberry lemonade before serving because it will separate as it rests.

Notes

The lemon juice and zest bumps up the flavor. The agave offsets the tang of the fresh lemon juice. And the yogurt just gives the whole thing a little more bulk and creaminess – making it feel less like a slushie and more like a creamy smoothie. And the mint – just, YUM.

All of those things would be optional, though, so mix and/or match and/or find some yummy add-ins that you might like!

I don’t have a nutrition label for this one because it includes a product that is not yet in our database (the Bai5 Limu Lemon) but this blueberry lemonade has really minimal calories since the base of the drink (Bai5) has only 5 calories per serving.

Thanks again to Bai5 for sponsoring our post today! Feel dem good smoothie vibes.

    I am so sorry it’s sleeting there. That just seems unnecessarily cruel. It’s gloomy here today, but just rain, and that’s more than enough to make me pout. But sleet? Couldn’t handle it. Also, 72 is the highest I’m allowed to put our heat – I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who cranks it way up there! I haven’t tried the lemonade Bai5 yet but I can’t wait to try it. This smoothie looks divine! I love that you added mint in there. Mint and lemon together are so fresh!

    Same weather deal over here in Wisconsin! And I’m crying silent tears over here at the weather cruelty. WHY?
    This lemonade just might lift my mood while I wait for summer. Blueberries and lemon FTW!! Pinned. 🙂

    Wrapped in my scrubby old Bed Bath and Beyond blanket like a human burrito here in WI and raising a glass of this beautiful lemonade to you (jealous of the indoor 73 degrees though. 67 is the limit here!). Maybe I can negotiate a higher temperature if I barter w/ lemonade?

  4. Pinch of Yum Logo

    You’re not the only one! I was woken up this morning to sleet on the window. What is this madness??

    I made a beet lemonade one time that was pretty epic. Although I love all the words in your recipe, I’m afraid I may have to wait until the sun actually comes out again to make it!

  5. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I can totally relate to that. It’s been spring for only about a week here in Austria, so I really hope the warm weather is here to stay.
    Your Blueberry lemonade looks pretty awesome though, despite the chilly temps. 🙂

    Wonderful and Marvelous

    I am sorry that your weather took a sad face emoji turn! That is the pits!
    It’s actually been nice in Seattle…but they say rain tomorrow. I am not surprised.
    Anyway. I am all about jumping the gun and at least pretending that it’s summer with this lemonade!
    I will drink it in my 75 degree home. 80 if the hubs is at work 😉
    Pinned!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Yes! Head to Target and try it! We love it for smoothies of all kinds. Also Bjork really likes “sweet drinks” like pop and juice, so this is a great alternative to the full sugar stuff.

    Ugh, completely understand wanting summer to come. I was fooled by the warm weather this week too, and now they’re calling for more snow this weekend. Blah. Really hope the weatherman is wrong and the snow is finished. Rain I can deal with in April, snow is always so disappointing! This blueberry lemonade looks amazing, might have to make it and pretend summer is here! 🙂

    There’s tons of sun here in the South! But this blueberry lemonade must be delicious regardless of the weather 🙂

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Agreed! Glad to find a fellow Bai lover! In addition to loving them in smoothies, I drank a bunch of them when I was sick (needed mooooore liquids) and felt a lot better about that than what would have otherwise been full sugar Gatorade or diet Sprite. Thanks for the comment Sam!

    These pictures are breathe taking! Your work never ceases to amaze and inspire. These pictures are so real I can almost taste the refreshment. And it honestly makes me want to drink up every last sip of this smoothie. Yum!!!

    Sleet? Yikes! Fingers and toes crossed for NO S-S-S I can’t say it. You live with a responsible spouse too? I thought I had all the luck! 🙂 And this smoothie looks delish!

    I haven’t had any luck finding the Bai5 ever since I saw it on your other smoothie recipe. This just looked so amazing that I found and ordered the Limu Lemon on Amazon. Can’t wait to try this drink this weekend!!

    And in El Paso we’ve been in the low 80s, with strong winds, though. The smoothie sounds delicious, but I’m wondering if there is a substitute you can suggest for the Bai5 Limu Lemon? That is something that is not available around here, or if it is, I am not aware of it. But I love the idea of blueberry lemonade. Hope it warms up in MN soon!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Hey Susan! I would encourage you to check out the Bai5 site to see where you might be able to buy it – like I said, we get ours at Target! It’s essentially like a lemonade, so if you had a lemonade-type drink, you could use that instead, but we really love Bai for this smoothie and others as well! It’s worth finding! 🙂 Here’s the link: https://www.drinkbai.com/locator

        Thanks, Lindsay, I checked it out. Apparently Walgreens carries it here (I was kind of surprised to see that Target wasn’t on the list, but that’s what happens when you live in a weird area. We’re right on the border with Mexico and our population is about 80% hispanic, so we don’t have a lot of products you can find most places.)

          Checked the stores on my side of town and they none of them carry the lemonade. I’ll figure something out.

    I love Bai 5! They were at the International Food Bloggers Conference I went to a couple of years ago and I got an entire sample pack from them of all their flavors. It was…amazing! Also, I’m in Tampa, FL so we have summer pretty much 11 months of the year. I would like some cooler weather – 75* seems about right. Would bring us down by about 20 degrees, haha.

      1. Pinch of Yum Logo

        Yeah, I guess after living in the Philippines I should have a greater appreciation for these cool temps. 🙂 Glad you’re also a Bai fan!

    I feel ya, Lindsay. I was so ready for warm weather recipes here in Chicago. In fact, I have a paletas recipe up right now on my blog. Today, I’m eating my crow. Haha. It’ll get here soon, don’t worry. Then we’ll be wishing it was Fall. C’est la vie. 🙂
