Blueberry Lemon Pina Colada

It has come and gone.  The first day of school.  And it was successful!  We are looking forward to a fabulous school year.  The older 2 (my middle schoolers) have some pretty high goals set for themselves this year in school, but they're gonna rock it!  Straight A's can be achieved!!!:)

And with school starting, summer is ending.  Sad face here!  I could really use another month of summer vacation!  And if I could make that happen, I would sit outside every evening and sip away at this Pina Colada and watch the sun set. Aw, that sounds nice doesn't it?  I didn't get enough of that in this summer.

So, while the days are still warm, whip up a batch of this cool, refreshing drink and sit back and relax.  It would also be a wonderful & refreshing after school treat for your back to schoolers!  A nice cool drink after a long day at school, you'll be the best Mom on the planet!

Blueberry Lemon Pina Colada

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 6-7 medium sized lemons)
2 cups cold water
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup sugar (we have also used an equal amount of Stevia)
3/4 cup Pina Colada mixer
about 1 liter lemon-lime soda, whatever brand you like
lemon slices for garnish, if desired

Combine lemon juice, water, blueberries and sugar in a blender and blend until smooth.  Transfer to a 2 quart sized pitcher.  Add the pina colada and stir to combine.  Add lemon-lime soda to make 2 quarts.

Serve with ice and lemon slices.
