How To Make Healthy Homemade Blackberry Lemonade

Written by Shelby Torrese

Jump To Recipe

My very first job was running a homemade lemonade stand, specifically a unique blackberry lemonade stand, with my neighbor when I was six. We would work for what felt like hours (probably close to 15 minutes) to perfect our blackberry lemonade recipe each Sunday morning, and would get so excited to see who was going to stop by. Our marketing wasn’t great, though. Our sign read: FREE LEMONADE, 25¢.

I wish I were joking.

We may not have made much money, but to this day I still have the best blackberry lemonade recipe ever. It’s rare to see blackberry lemonade offered, but it is so, so good! Blackberry lemonade is like a mystery jelly bean flavor you didn’t know you needed. It’s sweet and tart and refreshing and citrusy all at once.

Today I’m going to spill all of my secret blackberry lemonade ingredients so that you can enjoy it at home too! All you need are lemons, water, honey, Detox, blackberries, and some fresh mint sprigs to make it pretty. Oh, and about 15 minutes of your time to spare!

How To Make Homemade Lemonade

Making homemade lemonade is a lot easier than people think. Once you have the basics down, you can get creative with making flavors like blackberry lemonade! What sets a good homemade lemonade apart from a should-have-just-bought-premade-one, is the ingredients! Having the freshest ingredients possible will make all the difference in how it turns out.

The lemon juice you use will greatly impact the flavor of your lemonade, and if you’re going to take the time to make homemade lemonade, might as well homemade lemon juice! To get one cup of lemon juice, you’ll need about 6 lemons. My favorites are Meyer lemons, but they all do the trick!

Next, it’s important to know what kind of sweetener you like. I personally think honey is the best for this blackberry lemonade recipe because of its naturally citrusy undertones, but sugar would do fine if you prefer.

Lastly, flavor it up! I came up with blackberry lemonade when I was a kid because it was my favorite popsicle flavor. I tested and retested my blackberry lemonade recipe until it resembled my favorite frozen treat. It was the perfect mix of decadent and classic.
