This Blueberry Sparkling Water recipe is as thirst-quenchingly delicious as it is beautiful! And it’s so easy to prepare, you might just want to double the batch (that’s what I do!). Made with fresh blueberries, lime juice, your sweetener of choice, and sparkling water, this recipe is the perfect spring and summer drink! {Paleo-Friendly and Vegan-Friendly}


  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 23 tablespoons sweetener (agave nectar, 100% pure honey, or 100% pure maple syrup will work)
  • 1/21 tablespoon lime juice
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime-flavored sparkling water


  1. In a saucepan, bring water, blueberries, and sweetener to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5-10 minutes, or until the blueberries soften and are easily mashed with a spoon or potato masher. Remove from heat to cool. 
  2. When the blueberry mixture is cool enough to handle, press the mixture through a mesh strainer into a bowl. Press down on the blueberries using the rounded side of a spoon. This will extract as much of the liquid from the pulp as possible. Add the lime juice to the blueberry liquid and continue to let cool.
  3. Spoon 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup blueberry mixture into 8-ounce drinking glasses. Then top with ice cubes and pour sparkling water over the ice. Garnish with fresh blueberries or sprigs of rosemary.
  4. For best results, do not mix the blueberry mixture and sparkling water together until just prior to serving. Store leftover blueberry juice in a glass jar for up to one week and then add it to a glass with ice, sparkling water, and garnishes when you’d like a refreshing sip.  


  • Yields will vary, depending on how much blueberry liquid you add to each glass. The blueberry mixture yields about one full cup of liquid. For this recipe, I like to have about 2-3 cans of sparkling water on hand.
  • If desired, reserve a handful of blueberries for garnishing. Or do what I do and buy another container of fresh berries! 🙂
  • Any sparkling water will do. Lime sparkling water gives the drink an extra kick!
  • You can discard the blueberry pulp or reserve it for oatmeal, muffins, or scooping by spoon.
  • For best results, do not mix the blueberry liquid with sparkling water until just prior to serving.
