Blueberry Milk

For all of you milk fans out there, I have a fun new recipe for you….blueberry milk!

That’s right.  Not strawberry milk.  Not chocolate milk.  And it’s definitely not made from some processed syrup from the store.  This is homemade, natural, healthy, feel-good-serving-to-your-kids blueberry milk!  Whoo!

Although of course, it turned out a little more lavender than blue.  Hmmm….  :)

All you need to do is whip up the blueberry syrup, and then you can refrigerate it or serve it right away with your favorite kind of milk.  Super simple, and totally fresh and delicious.  Cheers!

    I made some this today. I put some in my milk (which was delicious) and the rest on some cinnamon french toast,which was even more delicious. Great recipe!

    My son likes mixing nestle quick into his milk and watching it dissolve into his milk. Just wondering how to get your recipe into a powder form – which would be healthier; he would love the blue color; and we could also transport easier on road-trips.

      I bet some dehydrated blueberries pulverized with some baker’s sugar (and a tiny pinch of salt) in a blender would do the trick.

    Well, not a new idea to mix blueberries and milk. This “recipe” is hundreds of years old in Nordic countries. Quite traditional summer treat that every kid has eaten. Except no syrup is added nor milk does get boiled. You just add some fresh blueberries into bowl of milk and eat. Adding both sugar and syrup makes it too sugary, IMHO. Or, you can just put your frozen blueberries into cold milk, which makes it more like a milky slush. Try sprinkling some cinnamon on top.
