Frozen Blueberry Water

June 19, 2014




Want a quick, cool, fruity pick me up? Try adding frozen blueberries to your water. While they don't really infuse the water with taste, they are a sweet, crunchy, yummy way to keep your drink cool.


We always buy an extra container of blueberries to keep in the freezer. We just pop them inside and, once frozen, the kids grab handfuls throughout the day. They rinse them off and add them to the top of ice cream, in their cereal and their water!


I keep them tucked in the door, right next to Boo Boo Bunny and Boo Boo Kitty. Am I storing them and freezing them properly, probably not, but they rarely last longer than a few hours, so I am not concerned. I am sure they lose more nutrients on the four day truck ride to my state or waiting to be unloaded from the boxes at my grocery store.

Everyone is eating fruit and that is good enough for me! They also look very pretty in the glass, which is a major bonus in my book!



Cheers! How do you enjoy your fruit?

    1. I like lemon in mine, too, Julie...hot or cold! Although it's lovely to be craving something cold again! ;)

  4. Great idea! We keep frozen blueberries here year-round because we eat them in our cereal all the time. I'm going to try this idea. Last weekend we had a huge crowd here so I made fruity water with kiwi, oranges, and strawberries. It was pretty and delicious.

  5. I'll have to give this a try once the weather warms up here, Kim. A great way to use Oregon blueberries, which we'll start seeing here in July.

  6. So pretty and very refreshing! I've been making smoothies with honeydew, watermelon, strawberries and bananas for my afternoon 'pick me up', instead of my usual coffee and cake, which was leaving its 'mark' on my midsection, especially the last year, having been initiated into the menopausal mama club! So sorry I didn't start this sooner and hope I will keep it up, even as the weather cools. Thanks for sharing your blueberry beauty! Unfortunately, we don't get blueberries here on the island, so strawberries will have to do!

    1. I am racing toward that menopausal mama club myself, Poppy! I should be eating better. I eat way too much sugar, I like cookies and chocolate a little too much and indulge on a daily basis. I may try your smoothie idea...probably a better idea for the whole family! Using the word island when describing your strawberries makes them sound so exotic and just a little bit sweeter! Enjoy them! :)

  7. Brilliant idea! My kids love frozen grapes and raspberries. I've not tried frozen fruit in water though. It is freezing cold here today, you are making me crave summer something awful!

    1. I am a lazy chef, Sheree! This was a super easy way to get the kids hydrated and "fruited" in one shot! I hope that you get the warmth you crave soon!

  8. Ooohh, frozen blueberries are my favorite. I love to eat them for a snack. In water, I tend to poke at them with a straw to release a little of the flavor.

  13. This looks so refreshing! Hot here today (not to mention the menopausal club) and I'm trying not to turn the a/c on too much, but this looks like a great cool-down treat : )
