Simple, fresh ingredients for the perfect summer drink.

  • Lime Juice: Freshly squeezed lime juice is always my first choice! (It tastes so good!)

  • Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is a beautiful sweetener to use in beverage recipes as it integrates thoroughly into the drink. 
  • Blueberries: This easy limeade recipe calls for frozen blueberries because it cuts down on the amount of ice needed.

  2. Add remaining ingredients into blender and pulse.
  3. Pour limeade drink from the large pitcher into ice-filled glasses

Recipe Variations

This recipe is tasty as can be as is. That being said, here are some alterations you could try when making this blueberry drink. 

  • Lime Juice: Fresh lime juice tastes the best, but storebought lime juice works in a pinch as well.   
  • Blueberries: This recipe uses frozen blueberries, but you could most certainly opt for fresh blueberries instead. Alternatively, a homemade blueberry syrup would taste divine! 
  • Sweetener: I always opt for maple syrup when making a cold drink as it seamlessly integrates into the liquid. This also saves time by not having to make simple syrup or dirtying a small saucepan. Another liquid sweetener option would be agave. If you’re going for sugar-free, try monk fruit sweetener or stevia. 
  • Fresh Herbs: Adding fresh basil to the main recipe or adorning each glass with basil leaves will put a beautiful twist on this recipe. Alternatively, mint is always a safe bet!


What is Sonic Limeade made of?

The basic Sonic limeade is made of lime juice and Sprite served in a cup with ice.

Is limeade the same as lime juice?

No, limeade is not the same as lime juice. Limeade is a drink made by mixing lime juice with water and a sweetener, while lime juice is the pure, undiluted juice squeezed from limes.

Is limeade good for you?

In moderation, limeade can offer the benefits of vitamin C from the lime juice. However, store-bought or commercially-prepared limeades may contain high amounts of sugar, which can negate these benefits. Always check the nutritional content and opt for homemade versions with natural sweeteners for a healthier choice.

How do you make limeade less bitter?

The easiest way to do this is to use more sweetener. I tend to like my limeade more tart, so that is how the ingredients in this recipe are portioned. To make this blueberry limeade sweeter, I recommend adding one tablespoon of sweetener at a time until you achieve your ideal taste.

How to make limeade sugar-free?

I like to use maple syrup because it blends into the limeade so well. However, stevia or monk fruit sugar would be great sugar-free alternatives to sweeten this limeade recipe.
