Blueberry Masala Soda recipe is everything you want in a summer drink.

Easy to make, refreshing and liked by everyone or you can say it’s always in demand especially when friends visit.

It takes less than 5 minutes to make them and what can be better than a homemade refreshing drink that’s a perfect mix of sweet, salty and a hint of tartness.

Growing up in India, we had a fresh produce market in every community, so we’re so used to of eating organic, wholesome meals every day that I always used to wonder if I’ll have this option when I move away.Blueberry for the Blueberry Masala Soda

But thankfully, that’s actually the first thing I saw when I moved to California as we used to have this farmers market right across our place.

It was always filled with fresh fruits from nearby farms and they are my Favorite!

So this weekend, we visited that old farmer’s market (which is quite far away from our present home) and relived some of those memories and also came home with 5 pounds of berries 😉

Blueberry Masala Soda

So as soon as we stepped into home, I made these Blueberry Masala Soda (Indian Blueberry Lemonade) as we were literally feeling toasted being almost 3hrs in the open market and the temperature was rising even beyond 95f (phew).

How to Make Blueberry Masala Soda (Indian Blueberry Lemonade)

The recipe is extremely easy to make, just need some:

  • Fresh Blueberries (you can use frozen too)
  • Plain Soda (Sparkling Water is fine too)
  • Masala (mix of Indian spices+herbs).

Serving Suggestion for Blueberry Masala Soda :

Just place everything in a blender and pulse till everything is smooth and mixed. Now you can serve it in two ways:

First Serving Suggestion:

  • Directly pour the blueberry+masala mix in a glass and pour chilled soda on it.
  • Now, this method is with all the pulp. (first picture)


Second Serving Suggestion:

  • Once the blueberry+masala mix is ready, sieve everything in a bowl.
  • Then pour this mix into glasses and add soda on top. (second picture from top)

So go as per your choice when serving this drink, however, the taste remains unchanged – it’s still as delicious no matter how you serve.

Also, on another note and many of my friends growing up in India would remember a drink called ‘Kala Khatta’ or Jamun Banta’.

Which was basically a mix of sweet-salty fruit syrup (made using a seasonal summer fruit – Jamun ….blue-pink in color & oval in shape) and served in a clear glass bottle with a marble on top.

It was such a craze as this was one of the initial local drinks introduced in India and everyone-anyone wanted one.

You just need to push the marble inside the bottle so that it elevated that fizz + fruity flavor.

I still cannot forget the drink and many times during my India visit, try to find it but it’s hardly available in the market.

So, this Blueberry Masala Soda (Indian Blueberry Lemonade) is the closest you’ll get to make it at home without the real jamuns but the same taste and color.

So, whenever we have friends who also miss that ‘jamun banta just like we do, this drink is always made.
So, go ahead and make this drink soon and enjoy with your loved ones.

    I remember the days when it was difficult to find a farmers market. . .it’s so nice that times have changed and there is virtually a farmers market around every corner.

    What a drink to enjoy after a day of meandering through the market. I love how fresh and vibrant the color is in this drink. And call me crazy, but I never fail to crave something cold and bubbly after being in the heat all day. This is perfect for that.

  • Karyn July 26, 2017 (8:06 pm)

    I know what you mean about the farmer’s markets – I miss the ones from home, too! Here in AZ we don’t have quite the same options you do in California, but I’m definitely going to seek out the ingredients to make this!

    • Molly Kumar July 25, 2017 (3:42 pm)

      Awee, thanks Kylee. The ingredients are so simple and I’m sure you can get them in any local grocers too 🙂

  • valmg @ From Val's Kitchen July 25, 2017 (3:14 am)

    This drink sounds like it’s got an intriguing flavor. Blueberry lemonade sounds like it would be tasty, I’ve never seen a salty lemonade before this.

  • Lauren @ Delicious Little Bites July 25, 2017 (12:19 am)

    This recipe sounds soooooo good! I love the combination of blueberries and lemons but brown sugar and mint are amazing additions that really make this unique!

  • Pam Wattenbarger July 24, 2017 (6:57 pm)

    Oh, this sounds super tasty! I love the taste of masala spices but I have never had them in this kind of drink before.

  • Megan | Strawberry Blondie Kitchen July 24, 2017 (6:51 pm)

    Molly, this looks amazing! The heat + humidity this summer is killer but this looks like the perfect way to beat the heat!

  • Tina Dawson | Love is in my Tummy July 24, 2017 (12:47 pm)

    Growing up, I never liked the masala drinks we had in India, but lately, I’m finding that I like a lot of things I hated as a kid – maybe I’ll give this a try again too, who knows, adult-me might like it this time!
