Fresh blueberries are among my favorite things in the world, and I love using them to make fresh blueberry puree for cocktails! It’s so easy and adds so much flavor to drinks!
When blueberries are in season and are fully ripe, they are sweet with just a hint of tartness. They are filled with vitamins and are rumored to help with all sorts of things like memory retention and to prevent heart disease. So, why not add them to your cocktails? Then maybe you can call them healthy 😉
What is in Blueberry Puree?
2 cups of fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons of sugar or 2 teaspoons of Homemade Simple Syrup
How Do You Make Blueberry Puree?
Add the fresh blueberries, lemon juice and sugar or simple syrup to a blender and blend until completely pureed.
Once your blueberry puree is as thinned out as you’d like, transfer it to an airtight jar or container and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
I love to use this fresh blueberry puree in cocktails, but it can also be used in desserts, smoothies and even as baby food. You can substitute fresh purees for sugary store bought syrups and really make your cocktails so much more fresh tasting. It’s easy to do the same technique using strawberries, blueberries, mangos, bananas and peaches.
