That’s one of the things I love about social media. I get to talk to so many people about so many things, and inevitably, you all keep me on my toes in the food department! I mean, I could have gone an entire lifetime never knowing about this marvelous beverage if it wasn’t for social media. What an awful shame that would have been!

This stuff is absolutely perfect for a hot summer day. Pour it over a tall glass of ice, sit back and let the cool refreshing flavors tone down the intensity of all that persistent summer heat.

    That sounds like something my kids would love… I am wondering how it would taste with other berries – I have a ton of strawberries right now.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Salixisme – I’m sure it would taste great!

  2. Hi,

    I love Fresca! I made one with watermelon and it is good. I also have a recipe for mango, that will be the next one I make along with this blueberry one!

    Thank you!

      Jean – My pleasure! Enjoy!

      Jeni – Fantastic! 😀

  3. Most berries and watermelon taste divine! I’ve never done blueberries, usually watermelon and mint with sugar. Yay! Thanks for this!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Tae – My pleasure! Enjoy!

  4. This looks delicious! Thanks for posting; I’ll be trying this soon. I also make smoothies using blueberries, almond milk, walnuts & honey. I’ve been wondering–is almond milk considered clean? I’ve been using the Almond Breeze & Silk Almond Milk brands but don’t know which is healthier to use! Any help is much appreciated =)

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kanthi – Not really, no. But if you can’t have dairy, sometimes you have to make exceptions. The only truly clean almond milk would be one you make at home.

  5. Thanks for the info! I can have dairy but prefer the taste of soy or almond milk. Maybe I should switch to organic milk if it’s considered clean…

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kanthi – Depends on your views. I personally think that organic, whole milk is fine. But some who are stricter than I believe that only raw milk is clean. They have a point, but in truth, raw milk is hard to find, very expensive, sours quickly and is even illegal in some states. I don’t even bother trying to find it in my area. Impossible. You also really need to know your source for raw milk. I wouldn’t buy it from just anybody.

  6. Very informative… Thank you! Also, would it be ok to use frozen blueberries for this recipe? Or do you recommend the fresh kind?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Kanthi – You could use them, but you have to defrost them first. It won’t work if they’re frozen when you make it.
