PX-41 Blueberry Lemonade

Makes 1

1 cup frozen blueberries

¼ cup sugar

Splash freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 ripe banana, pureed or smashed

6 oz. lemonade

Whipped cream, for garnish

Skewer of banana slices and blueberries, for garnish

1. In a saucepan over low heat, cook blueberries, sugar and lemon juice until reduced by half. The liquid will be very thick, and some berries will hold their shape. (Note: To save time, you can substitute blueberry jam for the reduction.)

2. Pour pureed or smashed banana and lemonade into a glass filled with ice. Layer a dollop of reduced blueberry mixture on top.

3. Optional for adults: Spike with blueberry vodka.

4. Garnish with whipped cream and fruit skewer, if desired.
