This refreshing and fruity berry-citrus mocktail is the perfect way to cool off and hydrate.

Refreshing Blackberry Lime Mocktail

Sip this refreshing Blackberry Lime Mocktail sweetened with agave and garnished with fresh fruit for a summery and bright drink.

Blackberries are an under-appreciated fruit, if you ask me. Strawberries and blueberries seem to get a lot of attention, but blackberries are every bit as delicious, versatile good for you. I love using them for baking recipes like my Vegan Chocolate Pancakes with Blackberries.

But they work just as well in a refreshing mocktail with bright lime juice! You'll love this hydrating summery beverage.

This recipe takes 5 minutes to make. All you need is:

For serving, use plenty of ice and your favorite garnishes. I like fresh herbs, a lime wedge, and more berries.

Big-Batch Mocktails

You can prepare a big pitcher of blackberry lime mocktails for a crowd. Just increase the ingredients proportionally. Wait to add the ice until you're ready to serve so the flavor isn't diluted.

Health Benefits of Blackberries

Aside from being a healthy way to hydrate, this blackberry mocktail also packs some important health benefits. Blackberries, and berries in general, are considered superfoods because they are:

  • High in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols
  • Rich in dietary fiber, which supports healthy digestion
  • Full of vitamin C, for a healthy immune system and glowing skin
