I don't know what it is that weirds people out when I tell them about one of my favourite breakfasts to eat in the summertime, but the looks I get when I explain it always make me laugh. I have been eating this since I was a kid, and I think only one person (hi Liz!) responded enthusiastically to the idea.
Have I intrigued you yet?
The recipe is a simple one. Two ingredients: frozen blueberries, and milk. That's it. I think my mom used to sprinkle sugar on hers, but I enjoy the tartness of blueberries, so I leave it as it is.
There are a couple of tips I use:
- Use fresh blueberries that you have frozen. I'm not a big fan of store-bought frozen fruit.
- Before you freeze the blueberries, make sure you wash them, let them dry, and then put them in the freezer.
- Before you make this, the blueberries have to be FROZEN solid. Usually overnight will do it.
- Let the blueberries sit in the milk for about 3-5 minutes before you start to eat your concoction.
